ROB SEZ: This marks the start of a Flamin' Groovies mini series here at the Repercussion blog. If you're a regular reader and don't know the Groovies, this might be a good time to check them out. They're a great mix of rock, pop and garage that's hard to beat. Special thanks this time around to Angelo from Power Pop Criminals, my source for the 1979 set, and Hans de Vente, who a few years ago shared a digital transfer of his master recording of the 1978 set.
