New Record Collecter Features 51 Top Skinhead Reggae Tunes & Limited Hippy Boys LP Offer!

Iron Maiden!?

On sale this week is the June edition of Record Collector Magazine with Iron Maiden on the cover. Iron Maiden? What the hell do I care about this rag then? Well besides being a good look at actual record collecting and UK focused music styles it’s way better than anything Rolling Stone has put out in recent decades. But the real reason you should check this out is because the “magazine will feature a fascinating article written by Michael de Koningh highlighting the 51 most collectible Skinhead Reggae tunes ever to have seen issue.”

In addition, there is a rare press of Smiley Culture’s first 12″; a special offer on a limited vinyl reissue of the classic ‘Reggae With The Hippy Boys’ LP, an enlightening news investigation into the spate of eBay fake bidding that has hit the Reggae collectors scene hard, Madness news plus Chris Welch remembers the fear inspired by Skinheads during the summer of love.

Let that sink in a bit – they are offering ” a special offer on a limited vinyl reissue of the classic ‘Reggae With The Hippy Boys’ LP”

So even though you might have to deal with Iron Maiden on the cover it might just be worth picking up (ugh the pun!). Remember it’s not what’s on the outside but what’s inside that counts and don’t let the cover fool you. Find it on the stands starting May 19.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
