Downbeat - July Edition

The July edition of Downbeat is an absolute gem. It's the mags 75th anniversary edition and contains articles and photos from past editions. Ellington, Goodman, Basie, Anita, Billie, Bird, etc. etc. to Zappa and Benny Golson. Whisper Not but that this has to be the best four quidsworth on the newstands (in Newcastle it's at Fenwicks) for the past 75 years.

Hi Lance

Yes, Down Beat's 75th edition is great. The Discovery Museum's 75th celebrations were of a similar quality!
