Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from September 12, 2017 Options

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, never realized that was a Dee Clark composition.

Nicely done on the Toys 7"!
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 10:17pm Kris Holmes:

I had to get it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/12/17 10:24pm Doug Schulkind:

Ho-hum. Every one of the records you've played is sublime.
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

Ha. Thanks Doug. means a lot coming from our fearless leader :)

This is so totally nice 'n' nasty Kris! Where'd you record?
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Dan. In the front bedroom of the old house in Marathon.
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 10:38pm Kris Holmes:

So I guess it's a West Texas record? Brandan will probably need a copy for his archive lol

Heya Chris and mad lad listeners.
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

Hi there Carmichael! Thanks for tuning in.
  Tue. 9/12/17 11:06pm little danny:

Get Misa on the air! I wanna hear some Maori!
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

Ha, she's back in Marathon finishing up some events for the Gage!
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

I dropped her at the Amtrak station at 2am this morning. Big city train stations at 2am are less than pleasant by the way.
  Tue. 9/12/17 11:10pm little danny:

Oh man that is some real America at 2am
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 11:12pm Kris Holmes:

We got hit up for money twice walking from the car to the station & once inside the station, by what turned out to be other passengers on her train. One lady was especially crazy acting.
  Tue. 9/12/17 11:17pm little danny:

Haha, of course you did!
  Tue. 9/12/17 11:17pm little danny:

Love this Young Hearts
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 11:18pm Kris Holmes:

the intro/outro is so weird for the rest of the song
  Tue. 9/12/17 11:24pm little danny:

How many Mar-Keys 45s do you have Kris? I've gotten myself down to four...
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

  Tue. 9/12/17 11:30pm little danny:

Gonna catch the last 30 in the archive tomorrow. Great show, and stoked you're back!

  Tue. 9/12/17 11:33pm little danny:

I'll listen to any version of "Baby Don't You Do IT" but Alvin's read was totally new to me and awesome
Avatar Tue. 9/12/17 11:34pm Kris Holmes:

yep blew me away first time i encountered it, finally rolled up on a clean cheap copy at ARC
  Tue. 9/12/17 11:40pm little danny:

Evangeline Made was straight-up Latin rock ala El Chicano. I dug!
