In this issue we talk to the legendary producers Ken Scott and John Leckie, who helped giants including the Beatles, David Bowie, Radiohead and Pink Floyd to discover their true musical identities.
And David Hepworth, founder of the best-selling British rock magazine Q and Mojo, chooses the 10 greatest session musicians of all time in rock'n'roll history. They're the secret weapons who bring virtuosity to records that will last forever.
We also meet an air flight attendant, Samy Ben Redjeb, who dedicated his life to bringing the most out-there African music to Western ears, and discover new talent from across the world.
Furthermore we have five music experts pick 25 game-changing albums you might not know but need to hear. Sometimes the greatest albums aren't the ones you think.
