Cover Photos of the Blues & Soul Magazine from the 1970s

In 1966, John Abbey, a fan of American R&B music, created a Home of the Blues magazine. In addition to publishing its charts, the magazine covered events and clubs and featured interviews and articles about music. Soon, the publication gained popularity in the UK and Europe, as it covered genres such as Soul, R&B, Funk, dance, jazz, hip hop, reggae, and world music. The magazine’s title was changed to Blues & Soul with issue number 12.

The magazine published 1000 issues by 2006. In August 2010, a special vintage edition was published in print. Blues & Soul was relaunched permanently in print as a two-monthly publication in July 2011 alongside its online presence, helmed by editor Lee Tyler and assistant editor Pete Lewis (a long-time contributor)

Here are some cover photos of the Blues & Soul from the 1970s.
