Rave March 1966

Rave Magazine March 1966

I've been scanning in a fair bit of my Rave collection over the last few days and thought I'd share this cover, it's one of my favourites.  I love the font and fish eye pic of a very young Eric Burdon.  It's mad to think this magazine is now 45 years old! Many more to come...

That's wicked cool!
Is this a British music mag?

I was at a car boot sale last summer and bought a 1960's scarf off a seller, she asked if I liked that era as she'd just sold her entire collection of Rave magazines to a punter for £5....arghhh! Please keep sharing these snippets so I know what I missed out on. xxx

Psychedelicsister - Yep, it is a brit fashion & music mag for teens, ran until the early 70s. I love them they such a great snapshot of the 60s mod teen culture!

Vix - OMG, someone got a serious bargain. These mags can fetch up to £30-50 a piece as some have v rare music pics.

Wow, I bet there are some amazing photos inside.
You all have the best fashion and music. I'm totally obsessed with UK fashion and music.

Oh I've never managed to acquire any 'Rave's, but I really must some day. Amazing photo of a slightly scary guy ;) xx

What a brilliant cover! I can't believe it's that old. I wasn't even born until 1969! Have a great weekend Becka xx

This is one of the two issues I own on this mag oddly! It's great a great piece, if I recall correctly, where "pop stars" talk about drugs and I think (?) John Entwistle spews some B.S. about only taking "pep pills" if they're presribed by a physician. I'd always wanted more issues of this mag but they've always costed a fortune!
