      Thank You for the kind words, Mr. Steve Hibbs. I posted comments for shows # 559 & 560 over the past 2 days. I'll try to get to Happy New Year-2013 tonight. Show # 561. Your post is very fine indeed. Totally agree with you about SKYFALL, which I thought was at least a solid B rating. Also agree that Doughboys sound an awful lot like Dr. Feelgood who, unfortunately, never really caught on here in the states. Love their sound though. Also agree that our Congress have their heads Way up in their assholes! They care not one lousy quid for the American people that they are supposed to represent. But I digress. Take care & I can only dream about what it must be like hanging out where The Stones got their start. Best Regards! SMRZ!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2013! Thank You so very much, Little Steven, for yet another 6 star special that gave us a review of 2012 along with your very wise kmowledge that all Garage members take to heart. Yes, 2012 was certainly a very strange year. Glad to see the revival of so many 60's veterans play such a major part in keeping the ROCK N' ROLL still going strong. Set 1. #21-16. Let's kick it off with The Rolling Stones with One More Shot, sounding very much like their 60's to 70's sound. Mr. Tom Jones, who also ruled in the 60's contributed his take on Willie Dixon's Evil, which was produced with analog flair by Mr. Jack White. Make Out contribute their ode to Narcissism, Maybe I'm The One For Me. Charles Bradley gives us Neil Young's Heart Of Gold. The 60's roar back again with The Dave Clark Five's Got Love If You Want It. And the 1st set closes with Mr. Alejandro Escovedo, who I've had the good fortune to have seen 6 times & have always been very impressed with, do Man Of The World. You mention some of your favorite books & I would like to recommend Bruce by Peter Ames Carlin, the new book by Pete Townsend & from what I've heard from the sound bytes, Andrew Loog Oldham's Stone Free. Andre's book is mandatory reading for anyone into the 60's and the music industry both then & now. See-some more 60's! Were you aware that Andrew offered co-management of The Rolling Stones to Brian Epstein? I get eary rushes from the book & it is indeed Excellent! Set 2 highlights which cover #15-11. The Doughboys contribute Crying Shame, The Urges give us Fire Burning, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang contribute their Noir classic Kiss Me Kill Me & Mr. Joe Walsh, who was also recording in the 60's, does One Day At A Time. Joe is now related to a Beatle. That would be his brother-in law, Mr. Ringo Starr. How very Cool. Set 3. You give us your favorite movies & T.V. shows. Breaking Bad, Justified, & True Blood were my favs from 2012. As for movies, my favorite films of 2012 were Beasts Of The Southern Wild, Argo, & Not Fade Away. Not Fade Away is a nice little period piece that has a rather weak script but is boosted by the excellent musical direction which you provided, Stevie. I'll have to see it at least 2 more times for the music alone. I was surprised by the rather scattered direction by David Chase, of all people. But that's just my humble opinion. I do have a degree from the Orson Welles Film School in Cambridge, Mass. That was in 1970 & I also write movie reviews that are published throughout the internet. That Film School no longer exists. Regarding Not Fade Away, I was surprised to see how different Mr. Jack Huston looks with his full face as compared to his role in Boardwalk Empire, which is also 1 of my fav T.V. shows. Moving along to the music from set 3 which covered #10-6. Nick Waterhouse gives of Someplace, which sounds like it came from another dimension. Suzi Chunk & Groovy Uncle cracks me right up with their very cool Look Back And Laugh. The set closes with The Beach Boys, who were also around in the 60's, with That's Why God Made the Radio. Moving along to set 4, which was as you called it, "Out of competition-Little Steven's ego-gratification set". From the fine film, Not Fade Away, St. Valentine's Day Massacre by The Twylight Zones, which was also the coolest song of the week. The Cocktail Slippers give us Soul Salvation Of Love. Bruce with the very poignant We Take Care Of Our Own. The Woggles want to Take It to The People, which ends your set. You mentioned my 2nd fav L.P., which was Baby Woodrose with Third Eye Surgery that opened with the very cool Down To The Bottom. Go Lorenzo! I thought that the entire L.P. was excellent with it's 60's Lysergic Rush. O.K. Now it's time for set 5 which included #5-1. Opening with Mr. Analog, Jack White with I'm Shakin', which was my #1 tune of the year. Also significant to note here that Jack's excellent L.P. Blunderbuss was the top selling Vinyl L.P. of 2012. It sold almost 35,000 vinyl L.P.'s. Not Bad Jack! Gotta keep that vinyl alive! The Noisettes gave us That Girl. Aerosmith gives us the very cool Legendary Child, which indeed, was from another dimension. Missonary, by Branden Daniel & The Chics, was # 2. And the #1 tune, as voted by Underground Garage members, was the very cool You're My Brian Jones by Palmera Delran, who you labeled "The Lucille Ball Of Rock N' Roll". Congrats to you, Palmera! More 60's garage-girl-group sound here. So Mr. Maharaj Of Garage, another fine wrap-up of 2012, as we look forward to 2013. Thank You so very much, Stevie, for another garage-revival year & wrap-up. One significant note here is that the sound of the Garage has returned to the airways. Also, we should know that Vinyl sales have risen some 400% over the past 2 years. Yeah-Baby! I guess that's it for another show, as well as another year, Again, Thank You so very much, Stevie for keeping the music alive. To All members who live IN & FOR The Underground Garage, Peace Be With You, and HAPPY NEW YEAR-2013! EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

      Robert .. Thanks for this stupendous review..!!..I think its great to have a full re-cap of what been said,just fills in all the gaps and great to refer back too..I notice some people don't dig it from previous posts on here,but once its up there people can take it or leave it..anyway works for me,so thanks !!..the combination of all the music just knocks me out ,the 60's -70's,the true garage vibe,everyone featured from Tom Jones to Palmera Delran..Blunderbuss probably my favourite album of the year,although I didn't buy it on liquorice must admit, saw Jack White at Hammersmith Odeon last summer with the 2 bands ,best gigs I'd seen in about 10 years..Dr John's Locked Down another great album,return to form for him,saw him in London these past two years,at Chelsea football club ..then out of nowhere Aerosmith put out a great rockin' album... all of which Little Steven showcases and highlights...Underground Garage so much the way forward,totally where its at,I love all of it, that's all there is to it..!!!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Thank You Very Much, Mr. Steve Hibbs! That is very nice of you to acknowledge my posted comments. They do take some time. I know that I'm just a hack but most of the feedback I get has been positive. I also enjoyed Dr. John's L.P. It reminded me of his 1968 masterpiece of Psychedelic Voodoo "Gris-Gris-Dr. John The Night Tripper", which I still play quite frequently. Really, Thanks again, and I hope that you have a very good 2013. Sincerely, SMRZ!!!
