    If you are looking to purchase them I reckon you'll have a hard time finding any sellers. If you only want to view them, I would suggest the British Newspaper Library in north London which will undoubtedly have them. You have to become a member of the library first, after which I believe you can make authorised photocopies (for a price, of course).

    I suppose the Bandsman itself might just have its own archive too.

    A few years ago I needed some pages from some 1960's BB issues.( About 6 )
    I rang the BB and they kindly photostatted the pages and posted them to me.
    They didn't really know what to charge so I sent them a tenner for Admin and postage.
    They were very helpful.

    I have a few dating back to the 70's and early 80's.But not sure what state they are in as they have been the shed for a few years.If I get chance,I will dig them out and have a look.You mentioned ones with music in.What are you looking for in particular?

    To follow on from my last,I think the earliest from the 70's I have is around 1975,if this is any help?
