Yes you would be well off giving up your Gramophone subscription. After reading Gramophone since the mid 70's my tolerance levels have finally cracked. It is but a pale shadow of its former self. How many of the regular featured articles have been dropped since the onset of James Inverne's editorship - Quarterley review, Soundings, virtually the entire audio section. You do get the impression that no one cares about how recordings sound any more. I've got a stack of old Gramophones which I regularly flick through. I suspect that the pressure from the publisher goes a long way to explaining the magazine's sad current state. At least Inverne has left the building so their may be hope after all. Gave up my subscription about 2 years ago and I don't regret it one jot.
