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

Twenty 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.

Wow, unexpected R&B guitar in this Pacheco
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/28/17 10:48pm doctorjazz:

Just LOVE this Let My People Bugalu, it's a riot! Steve Bernstein did something similar, but this is fun!
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 10:51pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/28/17 10:59pm Uncle Michael:

  Tue. 3/28/17 11:20pm Carmichael:

Heya Kris!
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:21pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Carmichael, thanks for stopping by!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/28/17 11:22pm Uncle Michael:

I can only imagine him nice. His good nature comes through his records. As much as I appreciate that he's an important guitar player, I really love listening to him sing.
  Tue. 3/28/17 11:22pm Carmichael:

God dammit, you played Jimmy Ruffin. I'm always too late ...
  Tue. 3/28/17 11:24pm Carmichael:

I saw Albert King back in the day in San Fran. Jack Bruce came out for a few songs, long story there.
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, great voice, great guitar, just a great person Albert King.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/28/17 11:24pm Uncle Michael:

Liz Spraggins: new to me...and amazing.
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:25pm Kris Holmes:

oh cool, i always liked Jack Bruce's basslines
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

Liz Spraggins, one of the harder Shout titles, from after Bert Berns' widow moved the whole shebang to Georgia
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/28/17 11:27pm Uncle Michael:

When Cream did that Albert Hall reunion some years back, I loved that they didn't try to sound like "Cream". They played the repertoire like the musicians they now were...with all the mileage on them.
  Tue. 3/28/17 11:28pm Carmichael:

King kept talking about someone, the Koreans, the Creeps, too southern for my suburban comprehension. I finally figured out he was talking about "The Creams", with whom he had cut an album. Out comes Bruce ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/28/17 11:29pm Uncle Michael:

OK, lights out for me...thanks Kris...night all.
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight michael
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/28/17 11:36pm doctorjazz:

Night all, been fun.
  Tue. 3/28/17 11:37pm Carmichael:

This is much smoother than Monkey Time. Although that's good in its own way.
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

good night drjazz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/28/17 11:52pm Little Danny:

Man I love this version of "Evil Ways."
Avatar Tue. 3/28/17 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

yeah it's great
  Tue. 3/28/17 11:56pm Carmichael:

They got it from Willie Bobo before Santana did? Maybe so ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/28/17 11:57pm Little Danny:

@Carmichael: I think that's the right sequence
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 12:03am Kris Holmes:

Santana & Village Callers are both 1969, neck & neck
