Yep. I'm surprised a music freak like you (it takes one to know one) doesn't already have it.

Although, as Jeff says about PLAYBOY, ROLLING STONE's not exactly on- topic, but it's not off-topic either, given both magazines' wide- ranging coverage of pop culture which, of course, includes crime fiction.

Imagine if the old pulps were available this way -- the mind boggles. Thirty years of BLACK MASK for about the going price of a single copy.

The only drawback is that the stuff can't be cut and pasted, although I guess if you're really determined you could print it out and then OCR it.
