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.

Twist King Kennytone will be my new Twist King name.

C'mon everybody, let's!
Hi Kris and slow riders!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:07pm Uncle Michael:

Are these records that just washed ashore, Kris?
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:08pm geezerette:

LOVE this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 10:09pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Kris and Homies
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

Michael, no. I only just started unpacking the 45s today, it's like a record/cardboard box bomb went off here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

is this the original "certain girl"? (if so i don't know how i never heard it all these years.)
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

yeah the K-Doe is the original
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

I guess *some* people skipped my Toussaint show.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:14pm geezerette:

Damn, these records! This sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 10:15pm coelacanth∅:

Ohh! you slay me.
i had a feeling it was an Alan Toussant song.

- i WILL listen to that show. (though it's possible i did, and just forgot about that song)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:18pm Uncle Michael:

Actually, it was almost all non-originals and that show featured the Zevon version because there was already other K-Doe songs in it. So...I shouldn't taunt.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:21pm geezerette:

Sounds African,very nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:21pm Uncle Michael:

If you dig new old funk, may I recommend Orgone. And I hear they're now working with Cyril Neville.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 10:22pm coelacanth∅:

yes you shouldn't!
...when was that show, UM? i'm not finding it around the anniversary of his birth or his death.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

Orgone are great. I had a CD in the car for a while!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:22pm geezerette:

UM, thanks for tip! Box set?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

I did my tribute a month before he died. wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:25pm Uncle Michael:

I saw Orgone for the first time opening for Galactic and the were great. At some point I was asking Kelly Finnigan of Monophonics if he was familiar with them and found out they're quite tight and have recorded together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:25pm JtotheK:

good evening Mr. Holmes. Hi everyone.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:26pm geezerette:

Hey,JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:26pm Uncle Michael:

I don't know about a box set, geezerette.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

Hi JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:28pm Uncle Michael:

And speaking of funk. If you get a chance to see Galactic...*go*. For many reasons...not the least of which is one of the best drummers alive, Stanton Moore.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:28pm geezerette:

UM, silly joke. Orgone,box,...I should never be encouraged.

Make America Groove Again.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:51pm Kris Holmes:

agreed
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:52pm geezerette:

Make records, not war.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 10:54pm northguineahills:

@geezerette: are you insinuating that America wasn't grooving? The lack of faith in soul in you is troubling ;P
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 10:56pm geezerette:

NGH, ha! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 10:59pm JtotheK:

bobby powell 'done got over' (on Whit) is a good track, i first heard that on Finewine's program.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:03pm Kris Holmes:

that is one i don't have!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 11:04pm northguineahills:

Wait, which cat was from Gainesville?

Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

great record, love it
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:13pm geezerette:

Absolutely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 11:13pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kris. I went to Uni in Gainesville, and am not familiar w/ him.

What, no YMO version of Tighten Up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 11:15pm JtotheK:

@NGH - the YMO version is also excellent.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:17pm geezerette:

Little Miss Elvis! Love her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 11:18pm northguineahills:

Off I go, thanks Kris!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:19pm Kris Holmes:

thank you!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:25pm geezerette:

incredible!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:29pm geezerette:

OMG, what a voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

the way i've read it, Dr. John never intended to be Dr. John. he wrote songs for and created the persona for someone else but that someone else declined to become "Dr. John", so mac did it himself.
....or am i really confused?!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:34pm Kris Holmes:

sounds plausible
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 11:36pm coelacanth∅:

haha!
(...i can't look into it right now - but i won't lost sleep over it! it's in my head, somewhere.)
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 11:42pm geezerette:

Kris, fabulous show! Listening, but away from computer.
Cheers til next week.

Night all !
