It’s that time again, with the current 365 day cycle expiring and a new set of 24-hour segments is on its way.
The family and I are going to hit the road for a little bit of year-end visiting with the relatives, so after posting this mix I will be refraining from blogging until the beginning of next week/year.
As a result, I have dipped back into the Iron Leg archives (at least that segment that falls between January 2009 and today) and selected about an hour’s worth of my favorites as something of a refresher course in the whole Iron Leg “thing”.
There’s all kinds of stuff here, from sunshine pop, film music, garage punk and psychedelia to pure pop.
A look at the playlist above reveals that this has been another groovy year at Iron Leg, and while not everyone (besides myself) is going to dig everything in this mix, there’s certainly something there for everyone to dig (if you get what I’m saying, and I think that you do).
If you seek more information on any of the above listed tracks, you need only dip into the Google-verse, placing both Iron Leg, and the name of the artist in quotes, and search away. You could also start with this post and then click on the ”next page” link at the bottom of the page and scroll backwards through the year, entering a low-powered intertubes time machine of sorts.
I hope you dig the mix, and that the previous years posts have been to your musical and historical edification.
I’ll be back next week with some more groovies.
Happy New Year.
