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.

Coel, what version is your fave/best?
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:06pm coelacanth∅:

i've become the man in black over the past few years. not consciously at all but i used to wear lots of colors.

Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

eh, her's is too syrupy for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:09pm Little Danny:

Are you kidding me, Kris? I'm wiith Coel
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:10pm Kris Holmes:

gah guys, Capitols is better!!!
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:11pm coelacanth∅:

it's syrupy maybe but her singing is sublime.
...+ i don't like the chord rearrangement so much that the capitols did. i feel it negates some of the emotion.
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:12pm northguineahills:

I'm more of a man in navy/royal blue, but I have a lot of black. Autumn, I usually go forest green/brown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:12pm Little Danny:

Yeah, I mean the Capitols was a great groove but nowhere near the emotional impact of Barbara's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:13pm JtotheK:

yay, the esquires! (and after this track, I gotta head out - will catch the rest via archives...) cheers everyone!
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:14pm coelacanth∅:

i fell in Love with miss lewis the first time i heard that song! i guess sappy is a-ok with me, sometimes!
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:15pm coelacanth∅:

c-ya JK
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:17pm Little Danny:

It's not even sappy! Or syrupy. Kris is tripping

LD haha!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:21pm Little Danny:

Little Joe and the Latinaires did an English-language version
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:21pm Kris Holmes:

dude, literally EVERY Barbara Lewis is syrup!!!!
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

i'm telling her you said that!
(i wish)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:26pm Little Danny:

I know and value syrup music. But the Lewis version is low viscosity, like a glass of wine. Dude you are making me anger-type
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

ngh i have many vintage shirts of bright colors and sometimes substantial collars; i have red pants, and black pants with a million starscape pattern patches. i've never cared what people thought and i lifted some spirits with my attire....but wearing all that now would be forced. it's not where i'm at - though i hope that changes eventually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:28pm Little Danny:

Huh. Is this a cover, Kris?
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:28pm Kris Holmes:

nah, this is the one i sent you a few weeks back, but i messed with the vocals some more
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:29pm Little Danny:

Ah, yes
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

...i guess i don't have a syrup meter. lots of syrupy music is on my shit list but not maybe merely because of syrupyness. i never thought about it much. ...but Barbara's version of that has a moving melody, chord progression and arrangements; and that quivering thing she does sends me over the top!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:34pm Little Danny:

Wow, this Dusty Wilson is killer
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:35pm northguineahills:

Ok, fading, thanks Kris!
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

g'night ngh

...i need to check out early as well. i need a shower and it's getting late.
Thanks Kris! excellent program!
take care Danny and everyone

Winding down over here. Great tunes, fun discussion - thanks mate!

Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:40pm Kris Holmes:

right on guys, thanks for sticking it out as long as you could
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/15/18 11:46pm chresti:

Hey hey hey! Sounds good
  Tue. 5/15/18 11:51pm still b/p:

Late Stranger weigh in: Never heard The Capitols version before. As for enduring appeal of original, for me it’s not so much a matter of reasoned musical assessment but fun, memory, mood-flavor and noting the touches that escaped closer appreciation when heard as a young ‘un.
Avatar Tue. 5/15/18 11:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Syrup meter! Ha. I like that. You're a real cut-up Coelacanth. Sraight up C list thrift store bottom shelf. But I kinda love it -scratches and all.
  Wed. 5/16/18 12:01am still b/p:

So many good tracks, thanks.
