Bronx: Bim Bam Boom Productions, 1972. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stapled black-and-white photo-illustrated wraps.
Fourth issue (of 13 total) of 1970s fanzine Bim Bam Boom, devoted to the rhythm & blues and do-wop music of the 50s and early 60s, with articles, discographies, and photos of such acts as The Flamingos, The Five Discs, The Five Crowns, early R&B label Vee-Jay Records, and original oldies DJ Alan Fredericks, aka "Mr. Night Train": "Alan played such tunes as 'Smokey Joe's Cafe' by the Robins, 'Come On Baby' by the Cordovans as well as Orioles and Ravens records. The response was fantastic. Eventually the Saturday night 'oldies' show became a welcomed feature." Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos, and ads for countless now-defunct record shops and mail order sources for rare vinyl. Mimeograph flier for WHBI late-night oldies show laid in. New York record store Downstairs Records' inkstamp to upper and lower wraps. Two closed tears to top edge of lower wrap, light soiling. Very good. A time capsule inside a time capsule. Item #551
