One of the rarest major label albums to emerge from the British progressive rock underground, THE MARVEL WORLD OF ICARUS was a concept work based around the Marvel Comics stable of superheroes. It came out in 1972, but, according to legend, was immediately withdrawn due to a dispute between record label Pye and Marvel Comics. Taken from the original master tapes, this first-ever official reissue - which includes comprehensive liner notes, band quotes and previously unpublished photos - tells the fascinating story behind the album as well as documenting the wider adventures of Icarus during their 1968-72 existence. With the addition of a clutch of rare or previously unreleased bonus tracks, this new release constitutes the complete recorded works of one of the most elusive, mysterious bands of the British psychedelic/progressive era.
