Formerly "Home Of The Blues" with their 12th. issue in this coveted series, that just happens to be one of the rarest and full of interest information that today is ungooglable.

The Valentinos featured on the front cover, with a write up inside as an introduction to the Chicago Focus inside covering 8 Chess / Checker new releases. Plus a new release focus of USA Bell inc: amazingly covering Scotty Williams - Fear - MOna-Lee + 9 more.

Biography and artist pictures of O. C. Smith. Plus Bio and artist picture of The Dells. Bio and artist picture of Vivian Reed. Bio and artist picture of Aaron Neville. Bio and artist picture of Sari and The Shalimars a short lived girl-group who recorded on Veep and were just having their one and only UK release reviewed. A rare artist picture of Lisa Richards - Jovial/Sure-shot recording artist - who's 1965 UK Vocalion release had just caught the attention of columnist Dave Godin as the flipside had a hidden Deep Soul side "Let's Take a Chance" he had been raving about in his inimitable way.

An interesting live review of The Temptations with Martha Reeves & The Vandellas live at Westbury Fair, Long Island, New York.

At the time all this was groundbreaking journalism, proven by the fact today most of it, remain undocumented.
