Vox Teen Beat
The Complete Collection 1965 – 1967
£27 GBP – $32 USD
‘Vox Teen Beat’ is the latest offering from Phantom Books.
Limited to just 1000 copies worldwide it gathers together perfect reprints of all 7 issues of the periodical broadsheet of the same title distributed via music stores across America during the mid 1960s.
’Teen Beat’ offered readers up-to-date information on the latest Vox products and more importantly, the bands that were using them. It chronicled the British Invasion and the birth of the US garage-rock scene and although published as a vehicle to push product it managed to retain the innocence, enthusiasm, zeal and spirit of the times.
Each 128 page soft-back book comes with an exclusive 33rpm flexi disc that contains 3 original Vox radio ads. ‘Hear the Electric Prunes play the Vox Wha-Wha pedal’ plus two other radio spots unheard since the 1960s.
Original issues of ’Vox Teen Beat’ are scarce collectors items that today command high prices – especially Vol 1 issue 1 that was printed in small numbers to test out the concept. The book contains a forward by Martin Kelly and a detailed index that enables readers to search for every band or artist that ever received a mention. From the Beatles to the Zombies and Nancy Sinatra to the Velvet Underground ‘Vox Teen Beat’ is a must for anyone who loves 60s music and musical equipment from the era.
