R2 - New issue 51 - In the shops now!
Welcome to the May 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 Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull fame who, inside, reveals how the blues had a major early influence on his music.
Inside Issue 51 you will find interviews and articles featuring Mick Ralphs The Demon Barbers and Bella Hardy to name but a few.
After many a long year of resisting a rise to our cover price, single issues of the magazine now cost £4.95. We still think that represents excellent value for money and we hope you do too. However, we are not raising our subscription rates, making them even better value than ever. Just follow the links below for details of how to subscribe.
