Kris Holmes's avatar View Kris Holmes's profile Options

20 years of dusty fingers, frayed cuticles, & upper respiratory infections — from record digging and DJing around the globe — coalesces into a 2-hour journey through Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Latin, Rock & Roll, and all points in between. Your speakers will be head-nodding, toe-tapping & even two-stepping to this vintage 45rpm party in no time. Hear favorite songs you didn't know were your favorites, aural treats & record-world problems from the vinyl side of life.

This is the shiz.

Listening to the drumbeat behind the first Syl track in a slight isolation-of-attention way, it started to sound like something generated by an early synth. Or else the big cheater-chicken and baked potato supper I shoveled in is affecting me sonically

Hi Kris, hi all! Really dug "Well Oh Well"
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:09pm Jeff Golick:

Sweet soundz, @Kris. High fives all around.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:12pm Little Danny:

keeping track of label pressing variations is gonna drive me insane

Hi Kris, hello everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 10:14pm JtotheK:

say, i found this 'second line' 45 a few months back - it's a good one!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:15pm Kris Holmes:

Hey guys, thanks for joining me tonight.
Avatar Tue. 3/21/17 10:15pm Doug Schulkind:

The Long Way ain't the wrong way. Greetings, Reverend Holmes and congregation!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:15pm Kris Holmes:

I bought this in Seattle, not a city I usually find New Orleans 45s in.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:17pm Kris Holmes:

Hey Doug!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:17pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, label variations = argh!

Sounding good over here too, perfect for this time of night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

I'm about done for the night. I'm still recovering from JC. I'll sleep the Long Way.

Ah this Irma T...

Such a beautiful performance, perfect.

Here is a beautiful sight on a Tuesday night:

the easiest way to DJ
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:34pm Little Danny:

"The Hunch" is my type of groove. Also, Pzazz was indeed a Gayten concern.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, thanks, I had to dust off some recesses of memories to pull that info out ha!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:37pm Little Danny:

I was impressed! I had to google that shit
  Tue. 3/21/17 10:38pm Belle Jarr:

This music is fantastic! Thank you.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:38pm geezerette:

Just tuned in, LOVE Mary Wells.
Evening, Kris and groovers!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:38pm Little Danny:

More greasy R&B instros!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

Also, Serato are sending me some 7" vinyl control records so I'll feel more comfortable DJing off my laptop when I do that!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:39pm geezerette:

haha, Alley Oops!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:39pm Little Danny:

Hi geez!

Thanks Belle

Hi Geezerette
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 10:41pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the paul gayten, only had heard his 45 'beatnik beat' before.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:43pm geezerette:

:) :D !
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:44pm Little Danny:

@J2tK: me too re: Paul Gayten! Now downloading some comps as I listen to Kris
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:49pm Little Danny:

Wait, what? You found that German side at Ringtail?
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

ha, yep.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:51pm Little Danny:

Well, shoot

p.s. Nicely done
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:53pm Kris Holmes:

that store is so depressing though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 10:54pm JtotheK:

@Danny - i browsed the paul gayten discography over at discogs, a lot more 45s than i realized! not sure how many would sound like 'beatnik beat' though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 10:54pm JtotheK:

always enjoy hearing this Pickett.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

so different to anything else he did
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:05pm Little Danny:

Some very nice Motown obscurities here Kris
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

Man, I haven't heard some of these in so long. You can scratch the surface of Motown, then scratch again & again & keep scratching & still find great stuff buried away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 11:08pm Uncle Michael:

This Ruffin has always been amazing to me. It sounds like someone waylay-ed it on the way to a Four Tops session.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:12pm geezerette:

Powerful stuff. Irresistable.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:14pm Little Danny:

Wow, this Creations is sooo cool. All I'd known by them previously was "A Dream."
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:17pm Kris Holmes:

I LOVE Steve Mancha

Hi Carmichael
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 11:19pm JtotheK:

Re: Mancha - 'Hate Yourself In the Morning' on the Groove City label is another good one.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:20pm Kris Holmes:

Oh man, that 45 is one of my favourite double siders of all time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 11:23pm Carmichael:

Just home from the local boozer. Heard some Joe Stampley and The Uniques!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

Nice, some great Uniques 45s on Paula!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/21/17 11:26pm Carmichael:

Wish I had the vinyl. They played Not Too Long Ago.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:30pm geezerette:

Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:32pm geezerette:

Glad you found these.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:33pm Kris Holmes:

Actually not the Echo, it was at the Short Stop just up the road
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:34pm geezerette:

Great part of town.
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, I play Funky Sole at the Echo when I can, great night!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:36pm geezerette:

Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:37pm Kris Holmes:

Actually met my wife there!
Avatar    Tue. 3/21/17 11:38pm geezerette:

Cheers to that, Kris!
