1966-1978. A true legend among rock mags, the New York City-based Crawdaddy!'s first 14 issues were printed on an old mimeograph machine. (...) Crawdaddy! differed from other magazines of its era in that it took rock 'n' roll very seriously. In its first few years, it tended to focus on politics and the radical views of the time.

28 more issues of Crawddaddy! published 1993-2003. It is currently published only online.
