Face Front, True Believers! Going through some old crap I had laying around after being inspired by a viewing of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, I came across my copies of Voices of Marvel (1965) and Scream Along With Marvel (1967), two promo vinyls given away to those lucky enough to have been around to join Marvel's officially sanctioned in-house fan club, The Merry Marvel Marching Society (or, M.M.M.S., for short).
Thanks to a former employer who used to own the comic book shop in which I worked during my college days of the early 1990s, I was lucky enough to score a vintage Marching Society membership kit, as well as the above mentioned vinyls.
Remember when Marvel Comics were fun? The current state of the publisher has led me to boycott their output, but at least we have stuff like this to remember the Marvel Age of Comics...
Voices of Marvel (1965)
01- The Bullpen, 1965
Scream Along With Marvel (1967)
01- The Mighty Marvel March
Included with the music are scans of the contents of my kit, as well as some later promo stuff mailed to kids during the 1966 holidays.
