Missing past issues? Can't find an Sound On Sound article?
- On 15 June 2016 we launched this new web site, which currently hosts 10,310 quality reviews / techniques / interviews / tutorial articles — plus news and SOS Forum posts.
- We are working hard to get the remaining issues converted into the new site format but this will take us time.
Past issues are generally being added one edition at a time to this SOS site, in reverse order, until we get back to January 1994 — although we have recently been adding individual articles or series from older issues, when requested.
Visit The Web Archive
Thanks go to a wonderful non-profit organisation called Web.Archive.org, who run their Wayback Machine service that catalogues billions of web pages from all types of web sites. This provides snapshots of the full SOS legacy site, as it used to be — meaning SOS articles not yet on our own site can usually be found in Wayback's extensive web archives.
Click this link to go to: 'Show All Issues of SOS' on Web.Archive.org — once there, select the Month/Year and view the Issue contents list. Clicking links to articles will open most of them.
