Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from May 19, 2020 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.

RIP Phil May
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

Ah, that must account for why so many '60s Kiwis covered the Pretties in their day
Avatar 10:16pm Little Danny:

Malo was jazzier, yeah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

The first two albums were excellent. The next two he played on had their moments but weren’t as consistent.
Avatar 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

Pretties were a huge influence on NZ at the time
Avatar 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

I ride hard for all the first four Malo LPs, great stuff. But I am a sucker for most Latin Rock.
