Favoriting The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from April 9, 2024 Favoriting

Kris Holmes's avatar View Kris Holmes's profile Favoriting

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.

Glad I saw him one last time in passing last year as I was walking by the stage that the revue was on so I stopped as he was doing Ain’t Got No Home but bounced once he was done with that.

Looking forward to hearing Frogman Henry's music for the first time. Just saw the Times obit. So many artists I never heard....

That obit said he developed the frog voice when teasing girls in school. It's apparently generated by breathing in while singing.

I come away from this thinking there's a lot of similarity in Frogman Henry's voice to Fats Domino.

I can hear that

There was an eclipse when I was in grade school and they closed the blinds and proceeded as usual. I'd rather a school blow money on glasses and miss than not.
