By the early 1970s Melody Maker was considered the most serious of the pop music weeklies, a musos paper. Melody Maker covered all of the major trends of the seventies – glam rock, progressive rock, punk rock, reggae, post punk and it was the home of some fabulous reportage on the music scene in Britain and abroad.
