To be fair, there will be younger readers of the magazine, brought up on acts such as Dream Theater etc., who, unlike us, will not have seen more interviews with Anderson et al than we have had hot meals, and might not know the background to the making of such classics and the tensions in the band at the time.

Those people will take a lot from the magazine.

Actually, I quite enjoyed it, as well, because there is a lot more in there than merely the cover story. The cover is designed to flog the thing so people read the extended content inside.

All in all, I think they do a good job.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

True. You put it very well.

The point I made was purely the (non) inclination of me buying the issue. Embarrassed

I just picked up the new issue, came out yesterday.  The main feature is on supergroups (ELP,Asia, GTR, UK, Transatlantic, etc) plus Steeleye Span, Can, Pendragon, ambient music, and the usual malarkey.

Thank you, Steve!  Your endorsement matters a great deal.  As soon as I can find it, I'll snag it.  

BTW, I'm an older reader of the magazine who saw Yes perform CTTE on 22 September, 1972.  There are not enough words to describe what I saw!  

Cheers!  BTW, I dreamt about Wales the other night, I was quaffing a pint with Steve Carney, the vocalist from UK Yes tribute "Fragile".  Lovely evening, I wish you were there!

The new issue doesn't look very tempting.  Mike Rutherford on the cover?  Another Rush article? William Shatner, though , so maybe?

The last three issues have had covers featuring ELP, then Rick Wakeman, and now Kate Bush.  I've stopped buying it - does anyone know what's in these three issues?

What's wrong with those covers? The Kate Bush one was obviously to tie in with the tour.

Nothing wrong with the covers, I'm just identifying (for those who didn't see these issues) which artists are on the cover.
The reason I stopped buying the magazine is unrelated to who is on the cover, it's related to the magazine being too expensive and not enjoyable enough for me. I can't remember the last time I played one of their CDs twice.  And tying in with the tour should be done when the tour is happening.

If you remember the old cover (original maybe) that was used for America, it was a take on the Camel cigarettes design, but it was like looking at the desert on a famous David Lean film!
 
Or as we used to say in those old days ... you just needed really good dope!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, instead of paying for a guru or church or social program!

From the official Camel website:
 
"Their second album, 'MIRAGE', heightened their profile and the album sleeve attracted the unwanted attention of the USA branch of Camel cigarettes who demanded the band change the cover or face legal action. The USA record company quickly fashioned a new sleeve to avoid legal hassles. The original sleeve remained unchanged throughout the rest of the world as Geoff Jukes had already struck a deal with the European branch of the cigarette company to release tiny packets of cigarettes (5 cigarettes to a packet) using the CAMEL artwork, including track-listing. "
So almost right, if being completely wrong is in anyway regarded as "almost right". The David Lean film is of course Lawrence of Arabia and you are referring to the famous "mirage" entrance of Omar Sharif.  So the name for the visual effect that was like looking at the desert in said aforementioned film that is used on the cover of the Mirage album by Camel is "a mirage".

None of which helps in the thought process of thinking-up a letter box and hump joke. 

It's called dope for a reason.
