Captain America Lives Again!
In light of Captain America's death (at least for now), I thought it appropriate to share this album with you. Golden Records put this out, and it's basically a radio show type retelling of the story in Avengers #4, when Captain America was returned to life after being found frozen in an ice block since the 1940's. The original record actually came with a reprint of this story, but unfortunately I don't have that.
The voices seem to be pretty odd choices to me. I can't place Captain America's voice, but he sounds familiar somehow. And for some reason, the narrator sounds like televangelist Jerry Falwell to me! (I know he's not, but that's what my crazy brain is hearing!)
UPDATE: This album is now available (for only 99 cents!) in mp3 format from Amazon.com! You can get it here.
And here's a video of the rousing theme to Captain America's cartoon!
