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.

Is it too early for Skynrd?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:08pm Uncle Michael:

Kris, on the episode of Brokenwood I watched last night, one of the characters said "I felt an egg." I understood him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:08pm Little Danny:

OMG Misa
  Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:09pm Misachal:

Asking for a friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:10pm coelacanth∅:

never heard that version of is it because i'm black; and never before thought there was a slight similarity between that song and "we Love all" from sly & the family stone's first album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:10pm Little Danny:

Thought you were going for a S.A. set for a bit there, Kris
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:10pm Kris Holmes:

just the first two 45s in this box lol
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

ha at "EGG" Michael

(i have, however, considered before the possibility that i'm crazy)

never too early for Skynyrd

Skynrd: Is It Because I’m Red-n _ _ _?

i can't place that Sly track, will have to youtube later

Kris, glad to be here.
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 10:14pm Doug Schulkind:

I like the way you operate, Dr. Holmes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:19pm coelacanth∅:

Kris i may be wrong about which album it's on. and i've got some sly albums on cds too so it may be a "bonus track".
...anyway i'm probably way off about the similarity. (great track though you might check it out anyway)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

Haha Doug i just caught that!
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:21pm still b/p:

I like when “yeggs” shows up in old films and comics.
  Tue. 1/23/18 10:24pm MrFab:

Hi all, where ya at? (as they greet each other in Louisiana) I loves me some N'Awlins sounds. Stuff like "Big Chief" isn't really r'n'b in the typical sense, it's got that unique feel and second line rhythm. Surprised no one's really created a genre name for it.
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 10:24pm geezerette:

Feel like struttin' with some etouffee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

i hear that's the newest dance craze - the etouffee strut
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

heh, there's a record in that
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 10:31pm geezerette:

!!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:31pm Little Danny:

Huh. This sounds like Bobby Byrd on Brownstone
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

hey MrF where y'at mule?!
  Tue. 1/23/18 10:33pm MrFab:

Passin' a good time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:34pm Little Danny:

Also known as the "Tan Nightingale," too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

(most of my creole learnins come from Dr. John)
  Tue. 1/23/18 10:36pm MrFab:

We could all learn a lot from Dr John. The man's a walking repository of NOLA culture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

I heard this song at the dentist's today. No lie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:39pm coelacanth∅:

i learned a bit about new orleans culture from a Tom Robbins book too. (jitterbug perfume) weirdly my second reference to that author tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:39pm Little Danny:

@Kris: Does Misa genuinely like Lynyrd Skynyrd, or is she just trolling you?
  Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:40pm Misachal:

Sorry guys. My husband loves me, but also cant get jokes sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:41pm Little Danny:

Well well well
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:41pm Kris Holmes:

Misa genuinely loves LS, as do I.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

hahaha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:41pm Uncle Michael:

My dentist has no sense of humor either.
  Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:42pm Misachal:

He just came in gave gave me devils horns and yelled SKYNRD!!!
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

I opened the bedroom door & turned the volume up for her btw, so she isn't just commenting without listening lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:43pm Uncle Michael:

I'd have waited and closed the show with Tuesday's Gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

'skynard had some moments. (freebird and sweet home alabama notwithstanding)
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:44pm Kris Holmes:

she will probably be sleeping by the close of the show though
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:46pm Uncle Michael:

No one wants to see me shake my mini.
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:49pm still b/p:

When a friend is playing and asks for requests, and some yegg in the back yells out you-know-what, ohhhh, she gets clenchy and murder-eyed.
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 10:51pm Kris Holmes:

hahaha, I play it!!!
  Tue. 1/23/18 10:51pm MrFab:

But Uncle Michael, I thought size didn't matter?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:51pm Little Danny:

@still b/p: "clenchy and murder-eyed" is so great
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:52pm northguineahills:

Just got back from a meet and greet for a political candidate for the Gainesville City Commission. She's a young African-American woman who just moved here from Ft. Greene, Brooklyn. She was preaching to this choir.
  Tue. 1/23/18 10:53pm Dean:

Frankly, I think we should hope for candidates who disturb every choir.
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 10:54pm geezerette:

This show, such a party!
Everybody shake whatcha got!

NGH, gonna campaign for her?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:58pm northguineahills:

I know the some of the kids of Skynyrd (grew up w/ them). I was friends w/ Van Zant's daughter and Pyle's son. (I grew up outside of Jacksonville, FL). Oh the stories I have

I used to hate Skynyrd until i moved to NYC, and something from the cultural ambience was missing (Skynyrd was played everywhere growing up). Once I listened to them on there own merit, I actually liked them. And Yes, Ronnie was buried w/ a Neil Young tee (people kept breaking into his crypt in [in my hometown of Orange Park] to check to see if he was wearing the shirt, they had to move his remains to an undisclosed location.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:59pm northguineahills:

@geezerette: I put a sign out for her in my yard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 10:59pm coelacanth∅:

sbp yeh it's a bit worn out by now! but it's better than someone yelling "more cowbell!" -aside from the joke being old and based on a skit that wasn't that funny in the first place; someone's going to take it to heart, and play more, and louder cowbell.
  Tue. 1/23/18 11:02pm MrFab:

Ha, thought I was the only one who appreciated this oddity.

And geezerette, you talking party? Well, I got me a rum n coke going as we speak.
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 11:02pm geezerette:

This is the most NOLA Coasters I've ever heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:02pm coelacanth∅:

hmm when's that coasters song from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

(damn, i could use a rum n coke)
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 11:04pm geezerette:

MrFab: Cheers!
  Tue. 1/23/18 11:05pm Dean:

Man, used to listen regularly to JO on KPFK in LA. Great show.
Avatar    Tue. 1/23/18 11:06pm geezerette:

Incredible!
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 11:07pm still b/p:

I’m gonna say no one heard this at the dentist today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:12pm Uncle Michael:

Monarchs records are insane.
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:21pm Uncle Michael:

Keep the faith, Kris. I'm pushing the keyboard away.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:31pm Little Danny:

You should look up an image of the P/S that went with that 45. It's also crazy
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 11:32pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, i have the pic saved somewhere
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 11:33pm Kris Holmes:

he looks super dapper but also kind of psycho
Avatar Tue. 1/23/18 11:37pm Kris Holmes:

the hair though, a wig? gotta be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:38pm Little Danny:

I was wondering that myself. Gotta be an ill-fitting wig
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/23/18 11:41pm Little Danny:

Have you heard Ace's version of "Baby Please Don't Go," Kris? Killer
