Vintage Scan #39: International Musician And Recording World (Sept. 1977)
Other than a nice article on Steve Marriott (Small Faces) and how new wave will save live music, this magazine is essentially a catalog of music equipment advertisements. Certainly, it will interest any musicians out there, but even the non-musicians like myself will find plenty of music nostalgia to make a browse through the September 1977 issue of International Musician And Recording World worthwhile. Here is a link to download the whole thing, or read on to gaze in wonder at a few selected pages. Enjoy!
Yeesh. Not a very P.C. advertisement for a PA System. Moving along...
Kind of a nicely designed advertisement; doesn't look too dated nearly three decades later.
Recognize all the names on the borders of this advertisement? Obviously Queen, ELO, and Genesis ring a bell.. but how about Vibrators and Be Bop Deluxe?
Do you think PAS got Clapton in their ad legally, paying the big bucks? Or maybe just threw his photo in their ad, and prayed he didn't notice?
Quite the assemblage of drummers. Sure, there's no Bonham or Moon in the group photo, but there's Hawkwind, Camel, and the Damned.
If the drummer of Rio, backing Alvin Stardust, says TAMA is a good drum, then I'm sold.
The illustration looks like something I would have drawn on my folders in high school. In fact it might have been (I should have been more careful where I left my doodles.)
Ah, the eternal question. Janet or Chrissy, Mary Ann or Ginger, Bailey or Jennifer, Betty or Veronica...
Anyway, a little love, no matter how small, goes a long way to keep this retro-train running. Some of you have been very generous - much thanks!
