I’m only in the market for Golden Age and Simon & Garfunkel’s career, starting in the 50s as Tom & Jerry and ending pretty much as the 60s ended, spreads itself pretty much straight through it the Golden Age, but even I’m not going to be buying this edition, and if I’m not going to buy it, who is?
It reminds me of the six copies of the CSN & Y issue which remained resolutely on my local WH Smith shelf for about three months until, presumably, they were remaindered.
Don’t these magazines only work if you are dealing with the big hitters (Beatles, Stones, Dylan etc. – the Hendrix one sold out in my local WH Smith) or real mavericks.
I’d put money that an issue focussing on Beefheart or Zappa would outsell Paul Simon even if his record sales still beats both of them hands down.
