oops!...this is becoming a regular thing :)...

The eagle eye amongst you will have noticed that 1973 - No3 had no Gilbert O'Sullivan feature, I had updated the issue with the feature Dan had sent me and went and uploaded the original instead...!!  Thanks to John Robertson for pointing it out, the issue has been replaced now.

1973 No.3 and 1981 No.6 (full issues)...

Waiting on a fix for No.2 from Dan, so we move to No.3, for which the Gilbert O'Sullivan feature is Dan's, and also we have No.6 from 1981 and Dan provided the Bedders poster for this one...

1973 No.1 and 1981 No.4 (full issues)...

1973 is here and possibly the most popular period judging by the prices on eBay, this is almost certainly because it was the time of glam rock, and a lot of iconic stars appeared during this year, Bowie, Sweet, Slade, Bolan, Wizzard, Elton and even Gary Glitter so these issues are much sought after and not just by Look-in fans.  The Bowie cover on No.28 has become ludicrously priced since he died and it is a rarer issue anyway, luckily Dan has it :)

Anyway to business with 1973 - No.1 courtesy of Dan and thanks to him for help with No.5 from 1981...
