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.

Hey there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm JtotheK:

Good evening Mr Holmes, hi everyone. Tuned in this evening from Guadalajara, Mexico.
Avatar 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

whoa, vacation time huh?
Avatar 10:21pm Little Danny:

That Humming Bird track was SO late '60s Midwest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm JtotheK:

Nope, work trip. Long days! Looking forward to relaxing during the program.

Heya Kris.

"Well I hear the whistle but I can't go, I'm gonna
Take her down to Mexico, she said oh no
Guadalajara won't do."

Thank you and welcome to Idle Associations Made For Their Own Sake And Nothing Else.

JtotheK, waving a handmade tortilla at you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm JtotheK:

waving back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm chresti:

still b/p, this is the place to be in that case
Avatar 10:27pm Little Danny:

Haha. But that side is good too!
Avatar 10:28pm Kris Holmes:

yes it is but i didn't want to slow this set down lol
  10:28pm Carmichael:

Solomon Burke! Kris bringing the A game!
Avatar 10:29pm Franco Twinkie:

Humming Bird reminded me of this garage band called Siddhartha from my neighborhood when I was a teenager. A bunch of high school drop outs who would jam all day and occasionally play in the park.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm WR:

JtotheK, if you indulge, hope you have some nice tequila with which to wind down the day.
  10:31pm Carmichael:

Or Irish whiskey.
Avatar 10:31pm still b/p:

Solomon Burke sounded like R.B. Greaves with a little extra grit.
Avatar 10:32pm Kris Holmes:

oh man, i can't stand RB Greaves
Avatar 10:34pm still b/p:

How come? I know nothing other than the couple pop charting tracks.
  10:35pm Carmichael:

Ha ha, do tell.
Avatar 10:39pm Franco Twinkie:

There is this clip from some variety show of RB Greaves singing Take A Letter Maria. He is sitting on a desk in an office set that is really cheap and thrown together looking. it's sort of great in a cornball way.
  10:40pm Carmichael:

He also did Always Something There to Remind Me.
Avatar 10:41pm Little Danny:

Crisp drums! This is very nice indeed
Avatar 10:44pm still b/p:

I just saw that! The tape recorder he's dictating into then self-destructs a la Mission Impossible.
"Take A Letter, Maria" only and always struck me as an E-Z conceived, consciously depthless, catchy pop thing, dwelling somewhere between Tony Orlando and Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose. Didn't know it might stir hard judgments.
Avatar 10:45pm Kris Holmes:

i sure hope i fixed the skips in this Miles 45..........
Avatar 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

godammit
Avatar 10:47pm Kris Holmes:

sounds so good on 45 though otherwise argh
Avatar 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

i only recently delved into Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose because I'd never really paid any attention before last year, I really like the 45s I have now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm JtotheK:

I like the dance scene in blackkklansman that features a cornelius bros sister rose track.
Avatar 10:52pm Franco Twinkie:

And this happened at the bus stop?
Avatar 10:53pm still b/p:

CB&SR bring portable radios to mind. And even as a kid I thought the word repetition in the chorus lyrics of the two big hits was interesting as their "thing."
Avatar 10:53pm Kris Holmes:

best bus stop story ever!
Avatar 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

At the very end of the movie Bus Stop, Marilyn Monroe is wiggling down the street and some old bag asks the bus driver - "Is That A Movie Star?" The seen it all bus driver says - "Lady, that's nobody." Ha! was he wrong!
Avatar 11:04pm Little Danny:

What do you use to fix skips, Kris?
Avatar 11:06pm Franco Twinkie:

..And featuring The Devils Angel Singers!
Avatar 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

a mixture of different weights & running the stylus back & forward, maybe smooth with my fingernail, it's hit or miss
Avatar 11:11pm Franco Twinkie:

Some of the greatest lame-ass playing ever.
Avatar 11:11pm Little Danny:

Yeah I do the stylus thing too. Definitely mangled some grooves that way but it's been the most effective method ultimately
Avatar 11:12pm still b/p:

Hah, greatest lame-ass playing. Ya got your glam rock and ya got yer GLAP rock
Avatar 11:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Isn't there some kind of an ointment you can use on these problematic records?
Avatar 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

i don't know of one unfortunately
Avatar 11:27pm Franco Twinkie:

Lucky man. I scratch my back with a big cooking spoon.
Avatar 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Can we get any more juice out of those oranges if we sit on them?
Avatar 11:50pm Kris Holmes:

maybe if we twist them?
Avatar 11:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Great show, Kris. Thanks you very much.
Avatar 11:58pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Franco
