R2 - New issue 50 - In the shops now!

R2 Cover Welcome to the Spring 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 Don McLean who, inside, explains that his timeless classic, American Pie, was his attempt to capture a dream.

Inside Issue 50 you will find interviews and articles featuring he Men They Couldn't Hang, Kate Rusby, The Unthanks and a welcome return to the R2 pages of the timeless Wreckless Eric.

After many a long year of resisting a rise to our cover price, single issues of the magazine will 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.
