Iron Leg is a space where I ruminate about all aspects of pop culture not specifically aligned with funk and soul.

I write about those things here.

You can expect to see some MP3’s posted here – maybe even a mix now and then – and as it is over at Funky16Corners, the files are here for educational purposes, present for your delectation and perhaps to move you along to a deeper appreciation of the artist so that you will investigate them further on your own.

Files will be up for  a short time, and if you hold the copyright on the music, and it’s presence here offends you to the point where you’d like it removed, just say the word. 

That said, all contents (aside of course from the works of others) copyright 2007 Iron Leg/Funky16Corners.

I can be e-mailed at funky16corners at lycos dot com (replacing the words at and dot with the appropriate symbols of course…)

  1. your blogs rule. please never ever stop – I learn of so much great music from what you do. thanks a million hundred thousand.

  2. Hey – I just had to say what a great essay on the mod/60’s culture from one who also relived it during the 80’s! You summed it up really well. Keep up the good work man –
    It’s always a pleasure to take a break from the real world and tap into your blogs.


  3. This is the best site in the whole world. You have the best taste of music in the whole wide world.
    Keep the culture of 60/70’s alive!

  4. I have to compliment you on your Iron Leg blog. Lots of amazing stuff you’ve posted so far and I do hope there’ll be more to come.

    I also wonder whether you’ve discovered Wimple Winch yet? An excellent band from mid-60s Liverpool called Just Four Men who, like lots of bands, changed their name round 1966, opting for the bizarre Wimple Winch. Anyway, there’s a MySpace page featuring four of their tracks. I feel sure you’ll like them and perhaps want to include a track or two in your Digitrip compilations. Save My Sould is incredible, and Rumble In Mersey Square is also outstanding. (The other two tracks I think were rough demos for an album project that fell through.)


  5. Just found your blog today, and just wanted to say that it’s fun reading. It’s been book marked, and I’ll be back regularly. Thanks for this great blog~

  6. Love funky 16 corners and irog leg.

    I’ve been making psyched out mix cds which feature some tracks you’ve posted (and a few from devils music)

    Drop me a line if you want one…

  8. evening,

    Great blog. Keep up the good work.

    If you’d like, take a listen to the home/lo-tech, basic, music I’m doing. I suppose it would be considered experimental, kind of noisy, very raw, kind of all over the place.

    Band is Jimmy Juliano and the Fluorescents.

    Please look at http://design.focusdesign.com/blog/ . Music link on that page to a large number of songs.

  9. I’ve been trying to get a hold of the recording Here Comes The Pain & Don’t Be Ashamed by the Canadian Legends for many many years. I was the lead guitar on that record which was recorded at the Criteria Recording Studio in Miami Florida…. I was 18 at the time.

    Anyhow, is there anyway I could get a separate digital copy of the two songs?


    John Rondell

    BTW. The lead singer on these two recording is the very talented Billy Joe Burnette.

    • Thanks John for the Kind words. It means alot coming from the World’s GREATEST guitar player.

      We’re coming back, together, The Legends, better than ever concert.

      Pack your bags.

      Billy Joe Burnette

  12. GREAT site!!!

    Have you heard of (or do you have) a copy of “The Songs Of James Hendricks” on Johnny Rivers label Soul City? I’m trying to a track on the album called “Summer Rain.” This song became a pretty big hit for Johnny. I’d love to hear Hendrick’s version. THANKS!

  13. Hi Larry, Donj’t publish this one, but yesterday I was on another site and clicked on your link for Funky 16 Corners. A warning came up that there were six computer threats on the site. I tried today from my own blog and the same thing happened. Just thought you should know.

  14. Very sorry to hear about your problems, my friend. I hope it all works out for you and your family. I have enjoyed your posts for a couple of years now and will be sorry to lose them but, as you say, family is more important.

    Cheers mate

  17. Referencing Mark & Sumley. Hello, in 1978 I was part of a pop/folk trio called Mark, David & Company, based in Flint, MI. A draft notice forced me out of the group, and they went on to make an album produced by Milt Okun (John Denver, PP&M, & others). I’ve lost track of Mark and Ray, but would like to get a copy of whatever music you have of them…I was 18 at the time. Can you help? Also, at the same time there was a local singer–Mary Ellen Smith, who went off to NYC and last I knew she was doing the college circuit in 1969-70 thereabouts, but haven’t heard about her since. We were in High School together. She was a fine singer/guitar player in the tradition of Joan Baez.

  18. THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING BLOG!!! i am downloading like mad at the Monterey County Airport (Monterey, CA) and it’s 100000% better than Christmas Morning.
