Greetings all.
Just a brief note to wish you all a happy New Year, and to thank you all for dropping by this year.
The mix above is a selection of my favorite individual tracks from the past year here at Iron Leg.
I enjoy doing these year-end mixes because they give me a chance to reconsider/relisten to a bunch of cool tracks. A fairly large percentage of the tunes I feature here and at Funky16Corners are records that I’ve known and loved for years. That said, I go through a very rewarding process of rediscovery when selecting and digi-ma-tizing them, but once the posts are finished, I continue to move forward with new(er) material. Ironically, the tunes I tend to listen to repeatedly are those that I include in the podcasts, which make up a significant amount of my recreational listening.
There’s also the added benefit of rehearing these songs in close proximity to one another.
As always, there’s a pretty wide stylistic variety here, and if there’s something you don’t dig, hang on tight because something cool isn’t far behind.
I hope you dig the selection, and that you come back in 2009 for some more sounds.
I’ll be back on Monday.

Peace & Happy New Year
Larry

  1. As I’m watching this place (and Funky too) many times a year, I want to thank you for the music. Favorite 2008 track is Lynne Randell’s It’s a Hoedown.

  2. Just Plain Great As always…
    Your in my thoughts

  3. Cool stuff as always, glad to see you’re back in action after a brief hospital stay!

  4. I loved Chris Craft No 9, and finding out about Free Design was a total bonus. All the best with your recovery.

  5. As adviced on F16C I looked here and was happy to find something french from Jacques Dutronc (from Belge IIRC). Alas it is not in the ZIP. But frankly – I will stay tuned to F16C.
    Best,
    M.
