Pub./ed. John Platt. Each 20pp.-25pp. Illustrated.

Inspired by Zigzag and encouraged by Pete Frame, John Platt started his own fanzine in 1977, concentrating initially on his primary interest in the '60s Bay Area music scene. Its combination of detailed record and book reviews and thoroughly researched articles and extensive interviews (several of them by Pete Frame, whose 'Family Trees' also appear) proved to be as much social history as fandom, and in turn influenced subsequent magazines such as Strange Things (item #185).

Articles include features on/interviews with: David Lindley; Chet Helms; Bay Area Bohemianism; San Francisco poster art; Soft Machine; the Grateful Dead; Jonathan Richman; Mad River; Big Brother & The Holding Co.; Pete Brown (lengthy two-part interview by Pete Frame); Ed Cassidy; the International Artists label (with Stacy Sutherland insert in #4); Gary Snyder (by regular contributor Jim Burns); the Red Krayola; Viv Stanshall; the Soho music scene; Terry Reid; Fred Sokolow; Eel Pie Island; Central Avenue jazz; Peter Stampfel; Roky Erickson; Robert Wyatt; Lew Welch; Bridget St. John; Roger McGough; Ron Nagle; Phil Lesh; Mickey Hart; The Misunderstood; The dB's; David Meltzer; The Mystery Trend; and more.

Very Good plus to Near Fine.
