Does anybody know where there is a complete/ near complete set of the "Spin" magazine published by Liverpool band The Spinners in the 1960s (and possibly later)? I've searched the EFDSS library catalogue, but it doesn't appear that they have a set (unless I'm doing the searching wrong)

I am interested in the history of Liverpool folk song and I would love to find some copies of the magazine to look through.

Froots published a big spread of old UK folk magazine covers last year from their archive which included some Spins so possibly they have them.

I am up to my eyeballs at the moment but I deal in previously cherished stuff and I have some for sure.

Not sure what and where at the moment.

Contact me with an email off board

I'm probably stating the obvious, but have you tried Liverpool Central Library?

I know it's being refurbished at the moment, but I'd expect the catalogues to be available.

I have a few - somewhere in the house - that Packie gave me one time. Think there's a photo of the young Martin Carthy on one of the covers. But I don't know where to even start looking! If I come across them I can take a quick scan through to see if there are any articles dealing specifically with Liverpool folk song.

Spin is valuable archive material and is certainly something the Liverpool Library ought to have. (That is, if there are any libraries left in the land...)

Another obvious suggestion, probably: Have you thought of trying to get in touch with Tony or Mick from The Spinners?

I have some copies, but not a full run. I would be surprised if the VWML does not have a full run. Have you phoned / emailed and asked? or have you asked Tony Davis?

Thanks for all the help so far.

Liverpool central library/archives don't appear to have them (following catalogue searching and further enquiries) - which is a shame. And yes, they really should have them, so if anybody ever feels like donating their copies to the City of Liverpool...

I tried the VWML online catalogue, but as one is led to believe that this is incomplete, I will phone them up as Derek Schofield suggests.

I'm still hoping to find 'publicly accessible' copies, but if that fails, I will ask Hughie Jones as Les from Chorlton suggests. Gives me an excuse to go to the Everyman folk club again (not that I really need an excuse)

In the meantime, any other suggestions gratefully received!

I'm sure Liverpool Central Library did have some bound copies not long ago in their music section, but as the library is currently closed for a major refurbishment I can't check this out. I have found in the past that the catalogues at Liverpool were a bit unreliable in that I could find items on the shelves which didn't seem to appear in the catalogue under the obvious headings.

I think Wallasey Library in Earlston Road may have some old copies too; but Beryl Davis, who used to edit the magazine, could probably help with any specific inqiries.

Copies do turn up on eBay from time to time as well.

We have them all! ( well we think it is all of them) - used them for compiling the Bosuns Locker book which is all the articles written by Stan Hugill for Spin Magazine
