I recently bought this original 1963 copy of "Disc" - which was a weekly contemporary of New Musical Express and others of the time. For those of you not around in pre-decimal times; the cover price of 6d equates 2.5p in today's currency.  Mostly I bought it for the story about Johnny Kidd but some of the other stories below make excellent and nostalgic reading.........
