Well this is a surprising find! Who would have thought that a blues exclusive magazine would find itself in Kuwait?
I wrote about the state of blues magazines not too long ago, and I've been following a relatively new one called The Blues Magazine out of the UK. You can check out their blog [here]. They are also on Facebook and Twitter.
This particular issue is number 12, and covers a range of topics in 130 pages like:
- The 1964 Blues & Gospel Tour of Europe featuring Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and others
- Article on Robert Cray
- 60 Years of the Fender Strat (I did that too!)
- Article on Jack Bruce
and a dozen other things like reviews, tour information, hundreds of color photos and editorials.
It also comes with a CD, which was removed from my copy due to Kuwaiti customs (still the devil's music eh?). As you can see the cover has been ripped and the CD taken out.
So go on over to your local bookstore and get your copy and support the blues!
