I always liked the section about what was in Keyboard Mag 20 years earlier. We are getting close to the 30 year mark. I still have a couple of those early issues and they are a joy to read and relive. The Sequential Circuits advertisement with the keyboard wizard, a detailed review of something as deep as the Rhodes Chroma, a transcription of “Linus and Lucy”.

It would be nice to carry that over to the forum. If possible it would really be nice to have some article reprints. If photograph copy writes are a problem, we can do without the photographs. I’m sure many here would love to read an old interview or how to article from a great artist. New players could pick up on a bit of history.

Seriously? A vintage ad gallery? It wouldn't make you think we were kissing up to certain manufacturers who still advertise? 'Cause a lot of them are still in business. . . .

Let's see if more folks want this - I'll pitch it to the rest of the crew.

We're working on article reprints for the web site. No timetable yet, as all of us already have too much to do. But we want to put some of the old content up - the stuff that still applies today.

Seriously. Who wouldn't like to be able to browse classic synth ads? (Or maybe I'm just a strange cat)

I'm with ya, felix.

I've still got the Patrice Rushen Rhodes ad taped up on my basement wall. Not that it's a synth or anything, but mmmm, Patrice...


I played in an 8 piece horn band. We would often get bored. So...three words:
"Tower of Polka."

I'd love to see some vintage ads. The old moog and Oberheim ads would be fun.

the “Linus and Lucy” transcription would be cool!

After about two minutes' discussion, the staff loves this idea, and we'll begin it with the Web content for the October issue. I'm glad to be featuring the old ads again - I was a little bummed that the 20 Years/30 Years morph meant there was no space for the vintage ads anymore. I always enjoyed poring over the old issues and choosing which ad to feature.

Linus and Lucy transcription! Wow. How about the "Linus and Lucy with the Band" version from the long-lost Guaraldi tapes that were made into a record last year? That's the one I'd like to have - the horn chart is really cool.

BTW, Rabid, we never killed "20 Years Ago," we just moved it to the back page so it could have a whole page instead of the partial page it got in the old 411 section. And as I alluded to above, it's now called 30 Years Ago Today. We were amused to see EM me-too it with their "15 Years Ago In EM" feature. It's kinda cute how they wanna be just like us. ;^>

Gezzzzz. I never even realized it changed to 30 Years Ago Today. My September issue arrived today, and sure enough, there is it. A big 3 - 0.

My bifocals arrive next week. For real. I have a huge stack of magazines that I have not read. It was either toss them out or admit my loss to Father Time and get bifocals. I wonder what else I have missed the past two years?

Heads up: 30 Years ago will be missing from the October issue, but will return with the November issue.

Keep those great ideas coming!

Some of us that use older gear (my 0/1wpro, Ensoniq SQ80, K2000, etc) get a lot of mileage out of the older issues. I also help several local guys with stuff like Juno106, D50, Juno1, etc. Having the older issues makes it easier to assist them, also. Keep it up guys. Thanks for looking ahead to the past.
