As has been mentioned, the number of schoolboy errors in every issue of Classic Pop mag means that it can't be taken seriously. Any magazine selling itself as 'specialist' really needs to be accurate, when one considers that all the readers are going to know their stuff. I find it really depressing that they're still going.
It used to be laughable but it's got beyond amateur now. Glaring mistakes in every issue. The only reason i still subscribe is that it's only £9.95 every three months so for £3.30 an issue it's tolerable. Recently they've expand their umbrella and now include 70s and 90s. It's literally ten months away from becoming a Poundstretcher Q magazine and blowing smoke up George Ezra's arse....

I just got my issue, and am very happy with it.

Unless someone wants to list out all the mistakes, i don't really see too many, maybe
some bootleg covers, but that's about it.

The interviews are great, the overviews are decent, and the pictures are well done.
It's well organized, and put together.

For Americans, who never get this kind of material, I'm more than happy with this issue.

Lots of sloppy typos. Disappointed that some of the interviews are from years ago, For such a visually particular duo, the magazine designers have chosen to be all over the place with the graphics and the chronology of the text versus pictures. One for the collection only.

My mum saw the magazine on my desk and even knew from the cover that they weren't involved in the design. She didn't think it was as 'special as usual'. LOL

I've trained her well. She can spot a PSB/Farrow design at 50 paces!

I've already got the whole issue scanned in, and plan on making some corrections to the graphics
and images.

If anyone wants to help work on it, let me know, and I'll fix the more obvious mistakes.

I don't plan on redoing any of the graphics, unless its a basic fix.

It’s by Classic Pop. It’ll be a load of old interviews and anything “new” will be riddled with errors.
Haha. How true. I hadn't read a Classic Pop before but you nailed it.
