Cover Photos of the Blues & Soul Magazine in the 1970s

John Abbey, a devotee of American R&B music, established a magazine entitled Home of the Blues in 1966. The magazine went on to publish its own musical charts, cover events and clubs and feature reviews, interviews and other musical articles. The publication soon gained further popularity in the UK and Europe covering genres of music such as soul, R&B, Funk, dance, jazz, hip hop, reggae and world music. With issue number 12 the magazine's title was changed to Blues & Soul.

Blues & Soul magazine covers in the 1970s

By 2006, the magazine had published 1000 issues. The magazine returned in printed form in August 2010 with a special vintage edition. In July 2011, Blues & Soul was relaunched permanently in print as a two-monthly magazine alongside its ongoing presence online, helmed by editor Lee Tyler plus assistant editor (and long-time contributor) Pete Lewis.

The Independent has noted Blues & Soul as being the equal of magazines such as NME and Q. Billboard magazine has called Blues & Soul “a respected publication.”
