Superb issue if you're a Goodman or Goldkette fan. Back issues of Metronome magazine like this one are scarce and don't appear all that often, and when they do, collectors take notice. Don't get caught being outbid on this one...the chance may not come around again anytime soon!

Magazine is 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" with cover, spine and edge wear (with a few small scrape spots on cover), and general perusal wear but complete and intact, no cut-outs or missing pages, Very good condition.
