Contents include interviews with Caravan (mainly Steve Miller); Sid Rawle (from the Digger Action Movement, Tribe of the Sun, Dornish Island); King Crimson (mainly Ian Wallace); Rick Wakeman and Tony Hooper; John Martyn; Jade Warrior; Andy Roberts; Luther Grosvenor; The MC5 (in the UK for their second tour); Roy Harper; Paul Rudolph (Pink Fairies); Help Yourself; Hawkwind (Nik Turner and Bob Calvert); The Incredible String Band (Robin Williamson and Mike Heron); and Can (during their UK tour). Other articles include features on "Yoga and Orgasm"; Krishna Consciousness; The Divine Light Mission; BIT; the White Panthers (including a photograph of the Abbey Wood Panthers on their food programme, "Providing viable alternatives to the present pig system"); news of the upcoming Bickershaw Festival; pirate radio; Roxy Music; more + R. Crumb strip; album reviews; letters pages; classifieds; and a regular national directory of head shops, community services, health food stores and legal advice centres. Ads. include "Fuck You", a single by Lucifer (it was claimed later that all copies were seized by Scotland Yard), plus a full-page feature on them (Lucifer was identified by Howard Marks in his book, "Mr. Nice", to be solely Denys Irving); Hawkwind and Steve Took at the Dreamland Ballroom in Margate; and the Greasy Truckers LP.

A tenth issue was advertised, but despite membership of the Underground Press Syndicate and national distribution, the paper closed after only nine issues, citing the usual financial problems.
