Subject: BROADSIDE, TOPICAL SONG MAGAZINE
From: open mike
Date: 07 Dec 03 - 09:48 PM

I HAVE RECENTLY GAINED ACCESS TO A MUSICAL MAGAZINE AND BOOK
COLLECTION WHICH INCLUDES COPIES OF BROADSIDE MAGAZINES FROM
1962-1969 (THE SIXTIES!! DO YOU REMEMBER THEM?!)
This is a treawsure trove of goodies and from the
address labels they were originally sent to
David Dorfman in New Rochelle, New York,
bless his heart.
I presume he may be no longer with us,
else how would this collection found
it's way here?

Also included are copies of Sing out! from the
early years--back when they were half-page sized.

this is going to be fun looking thru them all!

I am sure it WILL be fun. I had the first fifty issues of Broadside once upon a time---but they went elsewhere sometime during the last 40 years---probably during a move.

Enjoy !!!!!

It might be good to ensure they are preserved somehow if they aren't already in some permanent archive somewhere. E.g., a digital collection of files.

One of the benefits of hosting and producing a folk music program on radio is receiving promotional CD's. One of my very favorites came from Smithsonian-Folkways, being a 5 CD boxed set with an well-compiled and very informative spiral book. It's title is 'The Best of Broadside' and covers many songs from the early days and more recent songs. Has anyone heard it? If you like topical music this would be a good addition to your resources.

published in the 60's in New York
by Sis Cunningham, Gil Turner with
Pete Seeger as advisor!

it had songs by Phil Ochs, Malvina Reynolds,
Bob Dylan, and others.

The pages seem to have been printed on a mimeograph machine
(remember those? dittos?)

i see there are recordings available from it.

Bob Dylan recorded for Broadside under the name Blind Boy Grunt so that Columbia couldn't catch him violating his contract.

I remember Broadside and also the Little Sandy Review, but I'm not sure if I ever bought copies of either. I did purchase Sing Out! fairly regularly, and many of the songs they published had first appeared in one or the other of those two "smaller" magazines, and were credited as such.

A few weeks ago, there was a thread asking who remebered The Broadside, apparently a folk club or venue of some sort in the UK. When I first saw the thread title, I thought that the discussion would be about the magazine...

I have some of the old Broadsides. Also the recent (a few years ago) release of five CDs of songs from the mag, along with a lot of interesting printed material.

The music ranges from wonderful to crap, but somehow it's all fun. Amazing how many people tried to sound like Bob Dylan in those days.

And of course, there was also the Boston Broadside, a folk music news magazine published at about the same time as the (New York) Broadside. I remember seeing side-by-side ads for both publications in Sing Out! under a headline that said something like "Two different magazines, both of them worth reading."

I actually edited one edition of Broadside around 1980 that was entirely focused on housing and neighborhood organizing songs.

I also have a bound copy of mimeographed reprints of the earliest issues which I picked up at a yard sale years ago.

Both words ( Broadside & Magazine ) are banned in France, as the latter tended to detonate after receiving one of the former from Nelson"s ships.

the reason i started this thread, is because i, also,
first thought of the magazine when i saw the other
thread about the band. Background: perhaps both of
these get their names from another source/word:
isn't a broadside an advertising flyer or sorts,
or an early newspaper or magazine...printed and
distributed "broadly"?

see this page: http://www.contemplator.com/history/broadside.html
where you will find this discussion of "Broadside Ballads"
(excert here)
.....In fact, printed folk music was extremely popular for more than four hundred years, beginning in the sixteenth century. Words to popular songs were printed on sheets of varying lengths. They came to be known as broadsides. Broadsides originally had no music but a note that the words were sung to a well known tune. Broadsides were popular in Britain, Holland, France, Italy, Spain and Germany and later in America. Interestingly, many early scholars distinguished between traditional ballads and broadsides, considering broadsides "bad representations of the original." (1)

Technically the term broadside does not refer solely to folk music. A broadside is normally considered any subject material printed only on one side of a sheet. Therefore, broadsides could also be a handbills, proclamations, advertisements, etc. Some sheets printed on both sides are still considered broadsides.......

also: Wiki. def:
A broadside is the side of a ship; the battery of cannon on one side of a warship; or their simultaneous (or near simultaneous) fire in naval warfare. ...

i have also heard that someone who does not have good aim is said
not to "be able to hit the broad side of a barn"


so there is some info about "broad" and "side"

I had a couple issues of Broadside sent to me, back in the early '70's. When I first started playing guitar, I bought the Oak Publications: Reprints from Broadside. They did at least three volumes with lots of songs from the Magazine. I liked the pen & ink drawings that accompanied the songs on the pages.

Best of all, they have online copies of almost all of the back issues, and they're expecting to have a complete collection online soon.

I put http://broadsidemagazine.com/ into the Wayback machine at archive.org, and came up with almost all the rest. But I'm still missing issue 184. Anybody know how I can tweak archive.org to find the missing issue?

Here's what I found at archive.org:
