I'd heard about this. I found it hard to believe that it ever existed. You know what's harder to believe? It's a good song! Classic garage rock (they call it "proto-punk" these days).

It really is kinda cool that Marvel used to have some hippie/countercultural cachet. Hence the Hulk (yup, him again) getting on the cover of Rolling Stone (drawn by Herb Trimpe!).

Yeah, it's considered a classic in garage-punk circles. There was also an album by English Blues group The Groundhogs around the same time with a comic book format and the art is by Neal Adams. There's one track on it I just think is fantastic!

Dig this groove (baby!)...

This reminds me...in the mid-70`s i distinctly remember
being in the local park and hearing on a transistor
radio a song with a chorus along the lines of "Captain
America, Captain America, Captain America yeah, yeah
yeah"

I have no idea who the artist was, and have not been
able to find out since! Any wise minds know who it was?

I ordered a copy of the 45 off eBay many years ago,  and it came sealed in an envelope within the shipping package. I carefully opened the envelope and noticed that the record was in flawless condition. I then noticed the envelope has the business name "Queen City Records" on it. This was the company that originally distributed the 45. In other words,  the record had been sealed in its original envelope since 1970!
