Does anyone collect the early issues of Bluegrass Unlimited magazines?

How far back? I think I have a few that are 5 or 6 years old if I haven't already thrown them out.

I accidentally left a stack from early 70s up to late 70s-ish in a cabin at an out of state gig we played back 10 - 12 years ago. Brought them to share with the band as we were there for a 4 day run. I'd read through them all, but I regret the loss because the photos were so great.

Recently my band played at Lorraine’s Coffee house and she gave us a couple baskets of magazines. They’ve been really interesting to read through so far.

I’d like to get the entire first year of its publication. I began getting them in 1968 and recently started to reread them again. Lots of wonderful history and references to the greats, and soon to be greats, in bluegrass. I’d recommend to all those new to BG, read some of these things in order to get a sense of its history and what was going on. Lots of new players I fear, aren’t aware of how it all came about. Reading these early issues would be a wonderful read to them and it’d connect them to the bluegrasses roots.
