Beetle Magazine's Encyclopedia of Canadian Rock (1974)

Does anyone remember BEETLE Magazine? Heavy on Canadian content and honest opinions. 
A bit like Hit Parader without the lyrics. 
This issue featured an Encyclopedia of Canadian Rock (although every genre of music is represented - including Moe Koffman). 
Bruce Cole was the photography editor. 
Wilder Penfield lll wrote film reviews, 
Mendelson Joe did album reviews, and 
Roger Ames had a full page on Reggae every month plus a 3 page article on Captain Beefheart here . 
Record company ads galore. 
The centerfold is a picture of 
Anne Murray with Gordie Howe
I sure wish there were something like this available now.
