Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from April 17, 2018 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.

Hey Dan. How was your weekend?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:03pm Little Danny:

Not bad tho not special
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:04pm Kris Holmes:

well that's ok then
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:06pm Little Danny:

Just spent the last few hours organizing my R&B and popcorn 45s by label as well as by style. My life is going exactly the way I'd planned!

Anyway, thought of you as I asked myself out loud if Al Pinckney's "Coasting" was a popcorn/R&B 45 or a soul 45. Still haven't landed on where it goes. Same for dozens of other discs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:06pm Little Danny:

Diggin' the Nashboro sides!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

as you know, i've barely graduated out of generic alphabetising here, it's tricky
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:11pm Little Danny:

"It's tricky": man is that ever the truth
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

I pretty much have a box ready for the hell of interfiling, worst job ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:12pm Little Danny:

Oddly I have 45s by all of these artists but none of these specific tracks. Great stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:12pm Little Danny:

Interfiling and record collector breakdowns
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

dude, there are a bazillion 45s on Nashboro & i think each of these groups have like 100 each & then there are like 350 Consolers 45s lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:16pm Little Danny:

I know! Nashboro is the gospel equivalent of Atlantic/Atco

hi.

Heya Jason

The Swanee Quintet could get very, very raw
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:19pm JtotheK:

your mention of 45 organizing reminds me ... i haven't done any 45 organizing at all in a while. let alone by style/label. i do ok keeping LPs organized, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:19pm Little Danny:

Jesus, Kris

@Jason: 45s get very tricky very fast I just found out

Blackboard Jungle, JV team.
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, so there was a knife, a "shove those music instruments (accordions & electric guitars) up your a**" & a "shut the f*** up". Gotta love the respect for authority in inner city welfare assistance schools
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:24pm Little Danny:

Man that would scare the shit outta me. Glad you weren't physically hurt
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:24pm Kris Holmes:

they're little, like funny angry midgets
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:26pm Kris Holmes:

any 45s you can't categorise, put them in playout boxes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:26pm Little Danny:

Hahaha
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:27pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Kris and all
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

but yeah you can't laugh, gotta be angry all the time, it's taxing
  Tue. 4/17/18 10:27pm still b/p:

All fun and games until someone gets an accordion suppository.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:27pm Little Danny:

The Stapes' Riverside recordings are wildly underappreciated
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

yep
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

to the accordion suppository & riverside staples under appreciation
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:38pm Little Danny:

"Mr. Moto" gets cited as the first-ever surf record. Whatta classic
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:39pm Little Danny:

This is my kind of set
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

I believe this copy is actually ex-Little Danny, I'm still in the box I put that stuff in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:42pm Little Danny:

Oh man. When you play these records I want them all back.

It's a disease
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:45pm Kris Holmes:

sorry :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:45pm Little Danny:

It's for the best

Austin: boomtown for more than thirty years.

Back to child-HOODS: Older kid, same attitude, same target. On a backpack trip, sharing by chance a shelter area with troubled and school-exile teens and their very young adult mentors, I was the one in our group requesting that a teen stop hacking at trees in the immediate area. Later overheard him in his tent speaking of me to his mentor, “I should have shoved that machete up his ass.” Interesting arrangement, too — male sharing small tent with “adult” female just about 4 or 5 years older than him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:50pm Little Danny:

You're welcome! Truthfully I enjoy familiar music waaaay more when someone else plays it
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

Dan have you had any contact with Numero over their upcoming lounge music extravaganza/expose? Looks interesting
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:55pm northguineahills:

Finally got the lappy fired up. Regarding Lightnin Slim, if you're asking if you're crazy, you're crazy! (I've inquired, myself).
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:56pm Sean B.:

Well. Dang....so good. Thanx Kris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:56pm Little Danny:

@Kris: yessir. The Exotica Project was the inspiration for it
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

oh that's awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 10:59pm JtotheK:

that reminds me ... *note to self: need to order numero group periodical 'the exotica issue'
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:00pm Kris Holmes:

yes, i definitely wanna check that out too
  Tue. 4/17/18 11:03pm still b/p:

Sometimes, even with something entirely new to me, the reverb amount seems juuuust right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:05pm Little Danny:

Otis just screamed! He sounded like a '50s jungle sound effect!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

yeah about to go all jungle cat exotica, dude should not lie down right behind me, he never learns, we do this several times a month
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:07pm JtotheK:

i'm gonna have to catch the rest via archives - thanks for the tunes, Kris - cheers everyone!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight jason!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:13pm Little Danny:

Wow, this Artistics is great!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:14pm Kris Holmes:

yep, i love it
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:15pm northguineahills:

Made a "Sound of Music" reference to my wife, as I almost hit a female deer on my way home from work. She's never seen it before. It must not be big in Mexico.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:16pm Little Danny:

As in "Doe a deer a female deer"?
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:16pm Kris Holmes:

WTF? How has anyone not seen that?
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:20pm northguineahills:

Yeo, LD: www.youtube.com...
  Tue. 4/17/18 11:21pm still b/p:

A lifetime in this American culture has given me unavoidable and inevitable familiarity with the music, outline, many details and images and widely arrayed references... but I have never seen the whole film.
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:22pm northguineahills:

I had to explain the whole movie so she would get the reference (thankfully, she understood Suisse's neutrality as part of the plot). I'm making her watch it this weekend.

(I first saw the film when I was four, I've probably seen it a dozen times, but not once since I was 17.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:22pm Little Danny:

@NGH: haha, yes! A Simpsons reference for everything in life please!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

yeah i have not seen iit in probably 30 years but i thought it was a right of passage like wizard of oz
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:23pm northguineahills:

(Checking the texts, her Mexi friends can't believe she's never seen it ever!)
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

ha, vindicated
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:24pm northguineahills:

Exactly Kris!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:26pm northguineahills:

@LD: Usually I'd defer to Amanda Nazzario, but anything past, present, or future that can and will be references, has already happened in the Simpsons.
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:27pm northguineahills:

can be referenced (My wife, who speaks English as a second language, does a better job then I)
  Tue. 4/17/18 11:27pm still b/p:

Not sure why the folks didn’t haul the brood for a viewing, as they did for other flicks of the period — Mary Poppins, Born Free, 101 Dalmatians, The Russians Are Coming....
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:28pm northguineahills:

Saw all of those, still b/p....
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:29pm northguineahills:

Lightnin' Hopkins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:34pm Little Danny:

@NGH: Ain't that the truth? Also I miss Amanda
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/17/18 11:44pm Little Danny:

shutting things down here Kris - thanks for the toonz!
Avatar Tue. 4/17/18 11:45pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight Dan!
  Tue. 4/17/18 11:54pm still b/p:

These records wrapped the day nicely, thanks!
