Other magazines published this month included Fabulous 208, the mag for Radio Luxembourg fans with a rather pensive Steve Marriott, former child actor who'd made it big with the Small Faces in 1966.
BEAT Instrumental was a more technical publication that focused more on the music than pin ups and 'what's your favourite colour?' but they still managed to come up with some cool photos of our fave raves, usually at work in the recording studio. The Beatles were halfway through recording their mammoth double LP set that would be released at the end of November, and had just released perhaps one of their biggest and most poular hits, the 7 minute 11 second 'Hey Jude', the first single on The Beatles own Apple label. All this just five short years after they released their biggest ever hit She Loves You.
Playboy, Hugh Hefner's famous international girlie magazine had an unusually modest cover for September 1968 and the usual whole host of interesting political, social and media articles. Oh and colour photos.
