Welcome to the 231st annual Iron Leg Year In Vintage Pop.
Of course it hasn’t really been that long, but this being the intertubes and all there’s always the chance that some gullible soul will happen by and think they’ve stumbled on the first blog ever.
That said, what we have here is a cross section – as determined by the management – of the best stuff featured in this space during two thousand ought eleven.
What I’ve done, instead of stirring too vigorously, is allowed the vibes to separate as it were, with the heavy stuff up on top and the lighter, slightly deeper stuff resting on the bottom end.
It has been a very interesting year hereabouts, with me tracking down all kinds of groovy music that was new (at least to me), getting the rare chance to DJ Iron Leggy stuff out in the world and dealing with a serious “outside world” crisis that almost put the kibosh on the blog for the second time in two years.
Things seem to be rolling along nicely at the one-post-a-week pace, allowing me to keep my shit together outside the blog, and still get to post some cool stuff here as well.
Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it together for another year, or at least until Iron Leg celebrates it’s fifth anniversary this coming June.
So, I hope you have dug what I brought you this year, and continue to dig what comes up in the future.
Happy New Year to all, and I’ll see you all in 2012.
