Recently I was looking at some I have from 1988-1996 (I think I ordered a calendar so, of course, with that comes a free subscription - but I don't have all of them from that time span) and what I noticed the most in terms of changes with the CT is how the products for sale changed drastically. It went from being the Coconut Telegraph to the Coconut Store - a skeletal version of the website the way it is now. The articles are all over the place in terms of, I'll call it "writing quality", but obviously they were having fun with it: a lot of it was shrouded in mystery - not a whole lot of facts involved regarding places or references.

I still have a couple of the original Caribbean Soul t-shirts. Original meaning the first ones put out. They're so... uncomfortable! I wore them once and they've been in a drawer or a box or crate ever since.
