For Classical Music Junkies - The Gramophone Archive

"The Gramophone Archive is a searchable database containing every issue of Gramophone from April 1923 to the latest issue. Despite the complexities of producing a magazine during wartime, Gramophone has never missed an issue and in 1995 added an extra, 13th, issue each year to coincide with the annual Gramophone Awards (this falls in the autumn, usually between the October and November issues).

Every editorial page of Gramophone, and most advert pages, has been scanned and digitized, the contents tagged as articles, reviews and advertisements and the text extracted, so that the entire Archive is searchable – by keyword as well as by date." Check it out.
