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 Coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:15pm Little Danny:

That Out of Sights was so nice
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

yep, i love both songs by them that use that title lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:23pm Little Danny:

Are we hearing any of yer ARC stash on tonight's show? Or does that come after their cleaning, processing, cataloging and filing?

Missed you and ARC, too!
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

The Dennisons & Gamma Goochee were from ARC but otherwise nope, still processing
  Tue. 5/22/18 10:28pm still b/p:

Need a dog or monkey to remind me to resume stream listening after getting diverted with something else, ‘cause otherwise my ass is deprived and disgruntled and whipped with regret.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:30pm Little Danny:

That Dennisons disc was easily the best version of "Walking the Dog" I've heard. (A song admittedly I've never really loved.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:31pm Little Danny:

Surprised a UK-only 45 showed up at ARC, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

sbp you could reroute a stream to run through your bedroom or living room so every time you entered the room you'd see it and think "stream"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

...that's about the only solution i can think of. i think it's impractical to get a dog or a monkey.
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

Don't know if it's the best i've heard but it's a goodie. First I ever heard was a version by Roger Daltrey on a cassette my Mom had when I was a kid. I hated it & took me forever to come around to the song after I heard the better versions. Roger Daltrey almost ruined Walking The Dog for me.
  Tue. 5/22/18 10:38pm still b/p:

The meditative burble could zone me out and I don’t remember nothing, coel. Or else I get caught up a long while in swatting fish out, bear-like.

Aerosmith’s Walking the Dog had a’holt of me for a while in about 1974, when I knew nothing of the pack of versions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:41pm Little Danny:

Oof, never heard Daltrey's version
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

youtube at your peril
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

i've never heard Daltry's version either, but the aerosmith version i never liked...and i don't hate early aerosmith.
  Tue. 5/22/18 11:09pm Dean:

Groovies did a decent version...didn't they?
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 11:10pm Kris Holmes:

i think so
  Tue. 5/22/18 11:11pm Dean:

That amazing Dan Armstrong clear plexiglass guitar, anyway, was worth watching. I had a buddy--Pooch of Flipside fanzine and Blow Up--who had one of those.
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

funnily enough, the other guitarist in my last band also had one
  Tue. 5/22/18 11:13pm Dean:

Wasn't Pooch, was it?
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

ha, nope
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 11:24pm Little Danny:

Dug that Ray Johnson. New to me
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 11:25pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks for agreeing with me, mate
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 11:49pm Kris Holmes:

It's easy to do when you're right :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/18 11:53pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the fine programme, Kris!
Avatar Tue. 5/22/18 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

Mate thanks for tuning in again!
  Tue. 5/22/18 11:55pm still b/p:

What I caught was goodshowgoodshow! Some I must hear again. Thanks!
