Digital reproductions of Number One Magazine featuring Morrissey & The Smiths pictures / articles

I wish all music magazines/newspapers would archive things for us to reminisce over.
Here is Number One Magazine from 30 years ago today (12, March 1988) which gives a little musical snap shot of the more 'pop' side of things (with an indie lean) 45p!!!
I'd urge anyone interested in music of the 80's to dig through all these issues. The classifieds & adverts are a nostalgia overload :)

I bought this magazine a few times myself - simply for the Morrissey bits.

*UPDATE*

Turns out Shane is a very busy guy and has a vast archive of complete Number One Magazine in a digital format. I haven't the time to go through every one as there's so many, but I'm sure Moz features in others:

83-86:

87-89:
http://www.shanemarais.net/no-1-magazine-1987-1989/

As someone who likes digging through information, I am completely overwhelmed by this collection.

(I had to recompress these to get under the 1mb limit - readable, but visit the main site for bigger jpgs).

Ah, the wit, the insight, the fabulously camp one-liners! Something of value has indeed been lost. Thanks for posting, FWD.

That's as much as I could find digging through.
Currently trapped in the past.

Great stuff. I only have time to read the first one right now but the quotes are really good. This is why I started listening to The Smiths in the first place. I saw interviews before I heard the records and had to buy them.

Thanks FWD. And this just confirms what some seems to forget... As the mag says "a man not afraid of a bit of controversy..."
