Rock Candy Records‘ press release states in part:

“You already know Rock Candy is your first port of call for quality rock CD reissues, because you’re on our mailing list.

And yes, it’s aimed at the discerning Rock Candy customer who wants to wallow in nostalgia and relive the glory days of classic rock.

Rock Candy Mag isn’t available in the shops. You can only get it through our brand new website at

Of course, I was there at the time. Editor Howard Johnson was too. And we’ve rounded up many of the leading journalists of the day – colleagues from Kerrang!, Sounds and Metal Hammer, including Malcolm Dome, Paul Suter, Paul Elliott, Steffan Chirazi, Jerry Ewing, Xavier Russell, Dave Reynolds and Philip Wilding – to deliver the stories we all want to read about….
