R2 - New issue 49 - In the shops now!
Welcome to the January 2015 issue of R2 - the best-selling eclectic music magazine in the UK. The new magazine features the usual entertaining mix of interviews, features and reviews. On the cover is the legendary Robert Plant. Inside Gerry Ranson’s insightful interview finds Plant discussing his new album; lullaby and…THE CEASELESS ROAR, reflecting on his time with Alison Krauss and explaining the challenges (and joy) of singing in Fulani.
Inside Issue 49 you will find interviews and articles featuring Sharon Corr, Hawkwind and Dolores Keane to name but a few.
As is traditional, the new magazine also features a look back at 2014 with the R2 writers choosing their best albums and gigs before looking forward with their tips for the top in 2015. You may well not agree with their choices but could never argue that it does not make an entertaining and thought provoking list.
All this, plus our extensive review section, regular features and a free cover CD for only £3.95! However, what better way of celebrating the start of summer than by subscribing to the UK's biggest selling eclectic music magazine? Simply follow the links below:
