Oh, you are in for a treat. This is a copy of The GQ Scene, the teen™ version of Gentleman's Quarterly, from Fall 1967 when it was published by Esquire. It so full of good things that it would be irresponsible of me not to just go ahead and scan the whole damn thing as a gift to the internet. It's "perfect bound," unfortunately, so that makes for less-than-optimal scanning. This is part one, and you can click anything to make it bigger.

The masthead (followed by a boring ad) reveals pretty much GQ's regular staff at that time:
Managing editor Jan Hodenfield has had and continues to have a busy career in print. Here she is mentioned in an article in the NY Times.

Zappa article concludes with an ad for fairly attractive, boxy Zenith electronics (the better upon to listen to your new Mothers of Invention albums, presumably):
Article on the San Francisco music scene begins, immediately interrupted by ad featuring hilariously square teenagers playing melodicas in a ski lodge:
Stay tuned for the rest of the mag! UPDATE: Hello, Crooks 'n' Liars readers! I'll have part two of this up by around 6PM EST.
Recap: part one, part two, part three, part four, part five.
