Jac Holzman Then and Now

John Tobler, ZigZag, May 1973

If ever I've identified with a record company, the nearest thing in my mind to an ideal would be Elektra Records, for many reasons, not least the fact that Jac Holzman, the president of the company, considers Zigzag to be the best magazine of its kind in the world. Also, it's my impression that the acts which appear on Elektra (past and present) have a certain charisma about them which makes for a good deal of interest in their activities. When Jac was here in April, I took the opportunity to talk to him on a number of subjects, the most interesting of which you will find below.
