Proximity ran for nine issues in tabloid format from Jan 1, 1980 thru Spring 1983, then resumed in desktop publishing format for 27 issues from Jul 1993 to Spring/Summer 2000. Two special issues were also published, one for the first leg of the 1995 North American tour and one featuring the ten best bootlegs (May 1999). I also have a copy of the printer's proof boards for a 10th tabloid issue in Fall/Winter 1983 that was to have focused on Robert's solo career which was never published.

I got Proximity for about 3 or 4 years in the late 90s.  It was quite good.  I recall that the editor had a positive review of Walking into Clarksdale and what he wrote got me to better appreciate the album, especially Blue Train, which is a fantastic track.

Unfortunately I did not keep the copies during the last 2 moves I have made.
