Worldbeat magazine was on the go for only a short period of time, slightly less than a year in fact during 1990-91.
It was a UK based publication but with an international outlook and although it covered music from the Caribbean, Africa and Latin America, it's emphasis was on the dance music side of life rather than folk/roots.
There were lots of band profiles and interviews, plenty record reviews and a smattering of travel type features from around the globe.
The magazine cover displayed here on top was the very last Worldbeat to be published and is dated September 1991.
From the same issue I have plucked out an advert for an album called "Steely & Clevie present Soundboy Clash", a various artists compilation of dancehall goodies released on Profile.
To accompany the ad I have put up my CD copy of the record to show you it in more detail.
