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.

Hi Kris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:03pm Little Danny:

Cool, only knew "That's When Happiness..." thru a coupla contemporaneous garage band versions
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

Hi guys!! I found a Kiwi 45 in a local Tejano store here yesterday
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:04pm Kris Holmes:

arranged & produced by a cousin of a lady i used to work with
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, never heard that version before.

I'm three episodes into Brokenwood and learning to understand Kiwi!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:06pm Kris Holmes:

hahaha, the one i'm trying to bring back is the insult "egg"
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:06pm Kris Holmes:

or introduce here i guess is a better term for it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:08pm Rich in NC:

Hey Kris, bring it home for me
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:08pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:08pm Little Danny:

Translation of "egg" for dumb Americans please, Kris
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

when someone is being stupid or being a jerk, they are bing an "egg"
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:11pm still b/p:

I can’t get the fmu app til a phone hitch is cleared. I can’t listen on this phone without it, zat right, phone gurus?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

Gene Chandler record...I'm guessing bassline courtesy of Richard Evans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:16pm Little Danny:

Texans are totally silly with panic when it comes to snow
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:17pm Uncle Michael:

Though not FROM NZ (merely a Canadian based there), I just discovered Tami Neilson.
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

Could be Richard Evans. Yep the grocery store was full on pre-storm apocalypse panic station last night. Tami is great!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:20pm Uncle Michael:

I'm spinning her this Friday.
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:20pm Kris Holmes:

awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:21pm Little Danny:

Rainy Daze's That Acapulco Gold LP on Uni is actually pretty solid. Do you know it Kris?
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

hey guys, how/where do you "favourite"tracks as you're listening?
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

never had the LP Dan
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:22pm northguineahills:

pirouette that UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

The star next to the track title on the playlist...
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

Ah I see it now, thanks!
  Tue. 1/16/18 10:23pm MrFab:

So that Johnny Thunder wasn't the New York Doll? I'm so confused!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:24pm Kris Holmes:

ha, no, that's Johnny ThunderS!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:25pm Uncle Michael:

Johnny Thunder is not Johnny Thunders. Johnny Thunder is probably best known for "I'm Alive," which is just a monster.
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

or his big hit "Loop De Loop"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

I'm Alive beats Loop De Loop 14-3 on FMU playlist appearances.
  Tue. 1/16/18 10:29pm MrFab:

Aaah, right! I actually had "Loop de Loop" on a fave childhood KTel comp "Goofy Greats."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

Well, Dave Clark fucked up all by himself...and relegated himself to second rate awareness outside of the UK by totally misunderstanding how music distribution works.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:30pm Uncle Michael:

That's probably a different song than the Johnny Thunder track, MrFab.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:31pm Uncle Michael:

I'm wrong, it's the same song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:31pm Rich in NC:

More Wishbone Ash
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:32pm Little Danny:

"Trolley." You're not fully Americanized yet
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:33pm Kris Holmes:

That's because "I'm Alive" is 11 times better than "Loop De Loop"
  Tue. 1/16/18 10:34pm MrFab:

Nope, same one. I just looked it up:
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Goofy-Greats/release/1607696

The fact that "Goofy Greats" was a much-played treasure instead of loving Van Halen and Kiss like the other boys probly says something about me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:34pm Uncle Michael:

It's 11 times better than 99% of all records ever made.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:35pm Uncle Michael:

Dave Clark, from Wikipedia: "Between 1978 and 1993, none of their music was available to be purchased in any commercial format, as rights-holder Clark declined to licence the band's recordings."

Can you imagine the impact of that?
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

ha, touche
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

what an idiot
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:37pm Uncle Michael:

So the fact that a lot of us came late to his catalog is entirely his doing. Anything that wasn't a perennial hit on oldies radio just disappeared from popular culture.
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

that's unbelievable almost
  Tue. 1/16/18 10:38pm MrFab:

Dave Clark's "Tequila"-inspired "Chaquita" is one of the all time great sleazy instros. Much recommended to fans of Link Wray, The Cramps, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:39pm Uncle Michael:

There are a lot of great DC5 instrumentals. "Theme With No Name" comes to mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:39pm Uncle Michael:

Theme Without A Name*
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

i really like them
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:41pm Little Danny:

Damn this is (yet another) great Supremes track. New to me
  Tue. 1/16/18 10:44pm Peter Mac:

Kia ora, Kris, sounding good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:46pm Uncle Michael:

Springsteen has stated that the DC5 is why the E-Street Band had a saxophone.
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:48pm Kris Holmes:

that makes sense
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:52pm Uncle Michael:

Well, I'm gonna lay down. My body is hinting that it bight be coming down with some sort of bullshit. I'm gonna be pissed. On the other hand, it'll just about guarantee that I won't have this year's seasonal bullshit during Marathon.
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:54pm Kris Holmes:

alright Michael, good night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:54pm Uncle Michael:

I'll be listening. 'night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 10:55pm Little Danny:

Man I love this Big Maybelle
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 10:56pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, it's one of the greatest. Perfection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/16/18 11:03pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kris, I'm off! cheers y OOOs!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 11:03pm Kris Holmes:

Late hello, Kris and all!
Eddy Giles was just what I needed.
Grateful for this mood.

Hi Geezerette. About to pick it up again after the break sorry. Thanks for tuning in though!
Avatar    Tue. 1/16/18 11:31pm geezerette:

I'm easy. :)
Avatar    Tue. 1/16/18 11:38pm geezerette:

40 Floors so damn good!!!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 11:39pm Kris Holmes:

a bit stalkerish in theme but agree, great sound
  Tue. 1/16/18 11:46pm MrFab:

I've aways thought there was something creepy about The Temptations "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me." Too bad Dennis Hopper never recorded it: "I'm gonna MAKE you love me, bwa ha ha!"
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 11:47pm Kris Holmes:

hahaha, a new sub genre, "Stalker Soul"
Avatar    Tue. 1/16/18 11:53pm geezerette:

Yeah, it was the sound I dug.
Avatar    Tue. 1/16/18 11:56pm geezerette:

So Doris Duke, Doris Day, and Daisy Duck walk into a bar...
