I have really been enjoying this, the past week or so. It collects every issue from 1967 thru 2007.

I have been mostly reading 1967 thru 1972. It is a throve of forgotten bands ads and reviews, definitely some crate digging to come.

Hendrix, Beatles, Dylan, Stones, Traffic, etc are dealt with in an everyday kinda way, they thought these bands would last forever.

Guitar, amp , and keyboard companies advertised heavily, now adays that is pretty rare. LOts of stereo equipment ads.

You get a context for what was going on, and classic blues, folk, and jazz artists were still releasing albums and vying for the same attention as Beatles, Stones, Dylan, etc.

These digital editions also have been done for the New Yorker, and 1950's Playboy. Every mag should be collected in this fashion.
