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.

Thanking you in advance for tonight's show Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:00pm Uncle Michael:

What were you thinking?! in advance, Kris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:01pm Uncle Michael:

Does anybody know the way to San Antone? Or Phoenix, Arizona?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:05pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know by i know someone who does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:06pm JtotheK:

hi!
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:06pm Kris Holmes:

I know the way to both those places, live in one & have visited the other a few times lol
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:06pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks for tuning in guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:06pm Little Danny:

Hiya Kris and long way friends. Just saw the news about Denise today
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:07pm Uncle Michael:

Could one of you help Charley Pride out, then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:07pm coelacanth∅:

rest in peace. Denise and France Gall.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

New needles & cartridges on the turntables this week, they sound thinner so far & quieter....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:11pm Little Danny:

Wow, these sure sound different from LaSalle's "Love Reputation" 45, her only record I own
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

my very recently former housemate grew up in san antoine and goes back and forth to visit. i'll ask him if he has any room for ol' Charlie.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

I don't actually own Love Reputation & agree, it's a lot different!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:13pm coelacanth∅:

didn't Denise (no implication here) jump on the disco train when it came through?
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

But yeah, moving to Memphis & recording with Willie Mitchell at Hi will make you sound not Chicago!
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

Pretty certain she did Disco in the late 70s, not my thing though so out of my realm of interest/knowledge
  Tue. 1/9/18 10:16pm Brian Poust:

As far as Denise disco goes, one could do a lot worse than her I'm So Hot album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:17pm northguineahills:

Sam of a ghost! Denise LaSalle as well!! (I'm running out of profanities).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:17pm coelacanth∅:

someone i lived with in the late 80s had a few 45s but when she said the name i already knew it, and i thought it might be from the disco era.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:24pm Kris Holmes:

Brian, better or worse than the Ann Peebles disco stuff?
  Tue. 1/9/18 10:28pm Brian Poust:

I will have to re-visit the Ann Peebles stuff you speak of, but Denise likely gets a little funkier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:28pm Little Danny:

Oh yes this Carla Denise! Crazy that you found a copy of this in the wild
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

We just heard a segue that's never, ever been done before.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

Ann Peebles was coping well & then there was a terrible sidestep c.1979 :-(
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:32pm Kris Holmes:

Dan I really like the 45, wish it wasn't so beat up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:32pm Uncle Michael:

How do you feel about Candi Staton's disco records?
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

terrible, I jump off at the last joint Fame/WB LP which is immediately pre-disco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not shocked.
  Tue. 1/9/18 10:45pm Brian Poust:

agreed. Candi doesn't fare well after she goes to WB, which is a shame 'cos I really want to like her gospel records.
  Tue. 1/9/18 10:47pm Brian Poust:

I do like Candi's first WB LP, actually which includes "As Long As He Takes Care of Home" but that's not entering disco territory yet. No Young Hearts Run Free....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:49pm Uncle Michael:

I tend to be overly forgiving because I'm a bit in love with her.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

yeah that's the last one i ride for, solid LP, half Fame iirc
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:53pm Little Danny:

This Sonia Ross is a favorite of mine. Will probably remain out of my price range forever...
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:53pm Kris Holmes:

that is what the reissue is for!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/9/18 10:53pm Uncle Michael:

I'm pushing the keyboard away. Keep my ears filled, Kris. Thanks for the music.
  Tue. 1/9/18 10:54pm Brian Poust:

Only a few have surfaced of that one, Danny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 10:54pm Little Danny:

@Brian: doesn't surprise me!
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:56pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight michael!
  Tue. 1/9/18 10:57pm Brian Poust:

You can find her on the cheap on LPs by Bohannon, The Bar-Kays and the S.O.S. Band though.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

that i didn't know!
  Tue. 1/9/18 11:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Very very superfine track right here, yes Sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:00pm Little Danny:

Whoa, is she singing on those LPs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:01pm JtotheK:

early night for me - thanks for the tunes, cheers everyone.
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:02pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Doug! Goodnight Jason!
  Tue. 1/9/18 11:03pm Brian Poust:

Backup, yes. Also Eddie Kendricks's "I've Got My Eyes On You" (recorded in Atlanta with SOS Band guys). She's on Bohannon's "Street Dance" LP, and I would need to review notes for Bar-Kays and SOS band specifics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:04pm Little Danny:

That's some good intel! Ross, like her labelmate Eula Cooper, had such a great "hurt" quality to her voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:06pm Little Danny:

Why not a CD of San Antonio stuff, Kris?
  Tue. 1/9/18 11:07pm Brian Poust:

Which is interesting because both women are absolute sweethearts! That said, Ross works for the Atlanta City Prison, so she's seen her share....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:07pm Little Danny:

Whoa
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

I don't have enough killer SA stuff to do a good mix
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:08pm Kris Holmes:

i don't think........
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:12pm Little Danny:

Your sweet soul show would also make for a killer premium

(I'll stop now)
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:12pm Kris Holmes:

ha, i've been doing so much sweet soul stuff lately!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:14pm Little Danny:

GIMME MORE
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:16pm Kris Holmes:

i'm disliking the new cartridges
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:22pm Little Danny:

Thanks for turning me on to that Grover Mitchell 45. Just checked the flip and it is so up my alley
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:22pm Kris Holmes:

classic cheapie!
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

my ex-girlfriend always called him "Groover" Mitchell, because she had it that that was his actual name, she was serious
  Tue. 1/9/18 11:31pm little danny:

Oh yes some hipster jazz
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:31pm Kris Holmes:

Gene Ammons one of my favourite hard tenors
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/9/18 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

i'm checkin' out Thank you Kris
'nightall
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:37pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight, Thanks!!
  Tue. 1/9/18 11:38pm little danny:

LOL the background cheering section is WAY up front
Avatar Tue. 1/9/18 11:40pm Kris Holmes:

his live LP is ridiculous, women just losing themselves the whole way through
  Tue. 1/9/18 11:54pm little danny:

Thanks for the great show Kris!
