Limited to just 1000 copies worldwide it gathers together perfect reprints of all 7 issues of the periodical broadsheet of the same title that was distributed via music stores across America during the mid 1960s.
During the mid ‘60s ’Vox Teen Beat’ offered readers up-to-date information on the latest Vox products and more importantly, the bands that were using them. It chronicled the British Invasion and the birth of the US garage-rock scene and although published as a vehicle to push product it managed to retain the innocence, enthusiasm, zeal and spirit of the times.
Each 128 page soft-back book comes with an exclusive 33rpm flexi disc that contains 3 original Vox radio ads. ‘Hear the Electric Prunes play the Vox Wha-Wha pedal’ plus two other radio spots unheard since the 1960s.
Original issues of ’Vox Teen Beat’ are scarce collectors items that today command high prices – especially Vol 1, issue 1 that was printed in small numbers to test out the concept. The book contains a forward by Martin Kelly plus a detailed index that enables readers to search for every band or artist that ever received a mention. From the Beatles to the Zombies and Nancy Sinatra to the Velvet Underground ‘Vox Teen Beat’ is a must for anyone who loves 60s music.
Note:  whilst original Teen Beat newspapers measured 290mm x 380mm, our re-prints are presented in a handy, slightly scaled down, shelf compatible 230mm x 305mm format.
