Listen to a 68-minute supercut of background music from the original 1967 Spider-Man

For those who think vintage Spidey is the best Spidey, boy have we got a treat for you. Here’s an hour-long cut of the jazzy music which accompanied the original Spider-Man cartoon, aired from 1967-1969.

The music, originally composed by Ray Ellis, has been etched together by Youtuber 11db11. It’s a great edit, compiling backing tracks from seasons one, two and three with as many of the sound effects removed as possible.

Fan of 1967 Spider-Man? Even if it’s just for the memes? Then chill out to an hour-long, jazzy supercut of the show’s background music.

Ray Ellis was a producer who worked with a score of artists, TV programmes and cinematic orchestras during his lifetime. His best known arrangement would still be Billie Holiday’s Lady In Satin in 1958, but his work hardly ends there.

From 1967 through 1969, he composed the theme, background and incidental music for Spider-Man. Check it out below.
