(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 (presuming there was no December issue) 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 interview with David Lee Roth; an article about John Fogerty and his "Centerfield" album; "Chris Isaak Talks To Himself" (a self-interview); an article, "Exploring the Music of Peter Ivers"; an account of a brief and unexpected visit to the Warner Bros. lot by Prince; an interview with the members of ZZ Top; etc. [NOTES: most issues are 8 pages in length; issue no. 1 is mistakenly dated January 1984, and has the first 4 pages and the last 4 pages bound in opposite directions (i.e. the issue has two front covers); issue no. 4 is dated April-May; there is no December issue.]
