IT'S HERE AND NOW - No.1 - APRIL 14 th 1973
It's Here & Now first published in April 1973.
It was a typical Glam Rock magazine, full of coloured pin-ups of all the latest stars of the day, Nearly everyweek David Cassidy and Donny Osmond/The Osmonds was featured in same way or another.
It really didn't have much news about what was going on in the Music World, it's questions to the stars was usually what is your favourite colour etc, but that didn't stop me as a teen buying it for the Slade and T.Rex pictures inside.
It was published weekly and it merged with Music Star another Glam Rock Magazine On January 12th 1974.
Their were just 40 Issues of It's Here And Now.
