About International Musician & Recording World
International Musician was a monthly music magazine launched in early 1975 by Ray Hammond and Richard Desmond's "Cover Publications". Later on, Ray Hammond would hand over control to Desmond's growing media giant, now renamed as "Northern & Shell", which today owns household name publications including Daily Express, Daily Star, OK!, and the Channel 5 TV channel.
It had many editions published for other countries, starting with a US edition, and ran until 1991, and by that time it incorporated the long-standard Zig Zag, and Electronic Soundmaker, and One Two Testing.
In the late 80s they regularly published an extra issue around Frankfurt show time, somewhere in Feb - April, and occasional special and Xmas issues.
