ABOUT OUR NEW ISSUE

Issue 153 (March 2020) is our first digital only issue: its main feature is a very interesting piece on the musical activities of Johnny and Dorsey Burnette with Paul Burlison on a day-by-day up until the final day of June 1956. Jam packed with newspaper clippings, ads from back then, and rarely seen photos, the feature undoubtedly enriches our knowledge of the Rock'n'roll trio's early days. Their history from July 1956 through to December 1956 will appear in a future issue. The issue also includes a further instalment of Andy Merey's instrumentals series "Instrumentals Forever" and we conclude with the usual huge review section

ABOUT THE MAGAZINE

American Music Magazine is published by the Swedish Rock 'n' Roll Club. We are a non profit organisation devoted to the 1950s rock 'n' roll music and our intention is to document, as far as possible, the early years of rock-a-billy, rock 'n' roll and its related artforms. The text of the magazine is in Swedish and English. Each issue is full of original photographs and discographies.

AM works in co-operation with the "Tales From The Woods" Roots Music Social Networking Group in the U.K. The aim is to collaborate to keep rock ‘n' roll, its history, and its many talented artists and musicians alive for posterity and future generations – this through sharing articles that have appeared in our magazines over the years, helping each other with publicity and generally spreading the word not just to the converted, but also to those yet to share our enthusiasm.

American Music Magazine är producerad av 1950s rockfans för rockfans och är en svensk tidning med både svensk och engelsk text. Tidningen utkommer med tre nummer om året och handlar företrädesvis om 50-tals rock 'n' roll, rock-a-billy och relaterade musikformer som exempelvis hillbilly/country och rhythm ’n’ blues. American Music Magazine drivs helt ideelt utan ekonomisk vinning.

American Music Magazine samarbetar med "Tales From The Wood - Roots Music Social Networking Group" som är ett namnkunnigt engelskt nätverk med bred verksamhet inom vår musik. Syftet är att gemensamt arbeta för att hålla rock 'n' rollmusiken, dess historia och dess många talangfulla artister och musiker levande för eftervärlden och kommande generationer - detta genom att dela artiklar som publicerats i våra respektive tidningar genom åren, hjälpa varandra med publicitet och sprida det glada budskapet inte bara till de redan frälsta utan också till sådana som ännu inte delar vår entusiasm och passion för denna musik.
