Seeking: Downbeat review of Donald Byrd's "Black Byrd"


Recommended Posts

Gang -- I'm trying to help a friend who asked if I had the issue of Downbeat containing a review of Byrd's "Black Byrd," which was released in early 1973. Alas, my collection of the magazine is incomplete and in 1973 I'm missing 1/4, 4/12 ,4/26, 6/7 and 7/5. Review is probably in one of the April issues.

Anybody got that and who could take a photo and post?

Thanks.

Wow. Never seen that.

Sadly, I had pitch all of my National Lampoons when I got married, though i kept the Encylopedia of Humor for the Ted Kennedy VW ad. That special issue was soaked by firefighters when we had an apartment fire on Super Bowl Sunday, 1985. Fortunately, the fire headed away from the living room, where my LPs were stored.

Just had a look through all 1973 issues, and guess what - they didn't review it at all.
