Press Rewind - Articles From the Past

One afternoon, a few years ago, I had the grand idea of creating a blog (then simply called a "web page") dedicated to old magazine scans, photographs, and variety of other archival footage. It was right around the time I was cleaning out my closet and going through dog earred copies of Rap Pages, Vice (when it first came out), the Source when it still had decent writing, etc.

I wanted to highlight the enthusiasm that came through in the writing. I think it was very reflective of the music of the time. Dave Tompkins articles were a shining example of what music journalism could be.

It was a fun time... A time when listening to the latest fourth generation dub and tripping off a crazy verse, or collecting flyers and magazine clippings, were actually experiences of great pleasure. Sometimes the point and click mentality can take a bit of the joy out of it. Luckily for you, great minds think alike, and some even follow through.

Enter the Press Rewind Blog. They cover all the bases with articles divided neatly in to categories. I spent a good hour looking through just a portion of the site. Some of the highlights included the Goodlife Cafe articles, Pre-Chronic Dre cover story, Making Sense With The Nonce, Dave Tompkins article on De La from On the Go Magazine, Big L, Nas, and more. They even add some songs to the mix. Check it out.

Glad you like our blog ! I know the idea is not revolutionary. I've seen people posting scans here and there, but surprisingly nobody devoted a blog about it. I'm sure some people have bigger mag collection than me & my wife though.
Peace, and thanks again for the link !
