R2 - New Issue 62 - In the shops now!
Welcome to the 62nd issue of R2 magazine - the best-selling eclectic music magazine in the UK. On the cover is Mike Oldfield who tells Kevin Bourke how his new release, Return To Ommadawn connects with his best work form the 70s.
Inside is the ever excellent Coope, Boyes and Simpson who explain why they have decided to call time on thier touring activities. Also featured are Eliza Carthy, Kathryn Tickell and the always splendid Gong - still eclectically mixing psychedelia, jazz and space rock after 50 years and counting. Issue 62 also includes, as per usual, our extensive review section with over 300 reviews to help you choose the best music for 2017 - quite a bit of which can be heard on Un-Herd - our free covermount CD.
Single issues of the magazine cost £4.95. We think that represents excellent value for money and we hope you do too. For even better value our subscription rates have been held at 2014 prices. Just follow the links below for details of how to subscribe.
