(no dust jacket) [black buckram binding with light external wear; title embossed black-on-black on front cover and spine]. (B&W halftone photographs, graphics) Complete year (Vol. 1, No. 2 was dated February-March) of this "cheap monthly publication from Warner Bros. Records directed at retail, radio, club and college communities," with a stated aim "to draw attention to current and upcoming projects associated with WB and to do so with a fair degree of accuracy." Strictly promotional stuff, presented in a self-conscious and occasionally straining-to-be-"hip" tone, but with occasional items of genuine interest, such as: an article by Rickie Lee Jones discussing her 10-inch disk "Girl at Her Volcano"; a short discussion by David Byrne of the Talking Heads album "Speaking in Tongues"; a "mystery novella" by T-Bone Burnett; an interview with John Hiatt; and best of all, in the final issue of the year (expanded to 12 pages from the usual 8), a longish (4-page) interview with David Lee Roth and a double-page Van Halen calendar for 1984 (or rather, MCMLXXXIV)!
