History and profileEdit
The magazine was founded by Peter Hugh Reed in May 1935 as the American Music Lover. It changed names to the American Record Guide in 1944. Reed was its editor and publisher until 1957.
Since 1992, with the incorporation of the Musical America editorial functions into ARG, it started covering concerts, musicians, ensembles and orchestras in the US.
The magazine prides itself in having "500 reviews in every issue, written by a freelance staff of over 80 writers and music critics." In addition to new music releases, many issues in past years contained an overview of the recordings of a single composer's works. Most current issues do not feature these overviews. For overviews, there is an index included in every issue detailing which issue contains these overviews.
