  2. ^ Neil V. Rosenberg, in Bluegrass: A History, University of Illinois Press (1985) (ISBN 0-252-00265-2), sets out the history of Bluegrass Unlimited (continuously published since its inception in 1966) at pp. 224-227, and thereafter notes (at 263, 278, 280, 285, 299, 315, 329, 334, 344, 354, 362 and 367) its prominence and influence as the oldest of the nationally-distributed bluegrass magazines. As Bill C. Malone observed in Country Music USA, University of Texas Press (2002) (ISBN:0292752628), at p. 542, Bluegrass Unlimited magazine was established by highly-regarded musicians Peter Kuykendall and Richard Spottswood. It is almost exclusively devoted to bluegrass music in the USA and abroad, with occasional reference to old time country music. It is a treasure trove of information on every phase of bluegrass music - biographical articles, discographies, record and book reviews, concert and festival dates, interviews, classified ads, and songs.
