In the latest Classic Pop Issue 73, we catch up with Dexys to hear about their hotly-anticipated new projects. Kevin Rowland, Helen O’Hara and Big Jim Paterson reveal all about why they’ve come up with a “director’s cut” reboot of 1982’s Too-Rye-Ay album plus their 2022 tour plans.

This issue, we also meet Martin Fry for an in-depth interview about The Lexicon Of Love as the ABC frontman celebrates the iconic album’s 40th anniversary in 2022 with orchestral live shows.

National treasure Rev Richard Coles looks back on his time in the Communards – including some hedonistic hi-jinks in Ibiza – as the duo’s debut LP is reissued in expanded form.

It’s that time of year again – we look back on the Best Of 2021 for our essential round-up of the finest new albums, reissues, compilations and books from across the past 12 months.

We also talk to Jane Wiedlin, who takes us inside the inter-band dynamic of The Go-Go’s, newly inducted into the coveted Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

Our Classic Album this issue is Tina Turner‘s Private Dancer and we revisit Tracey Thorn’s Tinsel And Lights for our Forget Me Nots feature.

Jamiroquai’s back catalogue goes under the microscope as part of our Album By Album feature and we interview Trevor Horn about his current on-the-road work with Dire Straits Legacy.

In our expanded reviews section we have new releases including David Bowie, Years & Years, Matt Goss and Elvis Costello while our bumper reissues coverage features Communards, Gary Numan, Howard Jones, Kylie, Olivia Newton-John, Gorillaz and much more. Our live section features Soft Cell, Paul Heaton, Level 42, Saint Etienne and Brand New Heavies.
