Flashback (Magazine - Winter 2012)

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
This second issue of Flashback has a cover story about Tomorrow, the psych band that Steve Howe was in before his career took off with Yes. The in-depth article is typical of what Flashback offers: well-researched and well-written pieces about artists who were on the scene four decades or so ago, almost all of them overlooked, obscure, or until now, forgotten. Some of the issue's other main features include the first major interview ever published with Morgen leader Steve Morgen, a fond look back at the Monkees-loving magazine Hullabaloo, a lengthy profile of British artist Gordon Jackson and a multi-page expose of Canadian band Influence. But all that is really just the beginning; the mag has 110-pages full of entertaining and informative reading about acts like Dragonfly, Keith West, Stacy Sutherland (13th Floor Elevators) and Julie Dyble, the original singer for Fairport Convention, all augmented with rare photos and other graphics like reproductions of album covers and concert posters. There's a list of 100 Early Hard Rock Albums that Everyone Should Hear, that while including a few titles by well-known acts like R.E.O. Speedwagon (R.E.O. T.W.O.) and Muddy Waters (Electric Mud) mostly challenges even the most knowledgeable of rock scholars with picks by eclectic acts like Leaf Hound, Orang-Utan, Banchee, Andromeda, the Litter and Morly Grey. There are also plenty of reviews of newly-released CD, DVD and book titles that focus on this era, for example the The Kinks at the BBC box set. Flashback is not the kind of magazine that you skim and then toss aside; rather it is a treasure that belongs in your archives right along with your Captain Beyond albums and your dog-eared copies of Cheetah magazine.
