Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from June 12, 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.

Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 10:43pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:05pm coelacanth∅:

- by far the most i ever spent on 1 song. of course now it can be had for around 6 bucks; but i had to search for it.
Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

worth the search
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

i take that back...75¢; $3.00 for vg condition , which mine was (hopefully still is) i paid 20.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:09pm Uncle Michael:

Is there a bad version of You Don't Love Me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:10pm coelacanth∅:

if so i haven't heard it
Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

hard one to screw up but there was one done recently that was kind of lame, some new R&B singer, took the tune & mashed new words on it or something
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:11pm Uncle Michael:

My "Singles Going Steady" show for October is saved. I raided the .25 cent boxes at Dusty Groove in Chicago, yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

i have a box of 45s that got caught in a flood. i don't know how many discs...about 20" worth (maybe 80?) i don't know if i'm ever going to take the time to clean them all with distilled water. (obviously the labels and sleeves are shot) i wonder if i know somebody with that kind of time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:17pm coelacanth∅:

all 8-track tapes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:18pm Uncle Michael:

I approach SGS as I would, being the antithesis of a record collector...by not pretending to be one.
Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:21pm Kris Holmes:

The DG 25c bin was good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:26pm Uncle Michael:

Good by Hinky Dinky Time criteria. Pure chud to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:27pm Uncle Michael:

I did find one collectible. Yellow Balloon on Canterbury...a steal for a quarter.
Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha, that could be true, last time i was in Dusty Groove I couldn't find a singe record to buy :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:27pm JtotheK:

Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:28pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar    Tue. 6/12/18 11:33pm geezerette:

Goodnight good people!
Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:34pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:37pm Uncle Michael:

It's fine here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/12/18 11:41pm Uncle Michael:

I'm pushing back the keyboard. Got home from Chicago at 4:00 AM and I'm still recovering... Thanks, Kris. Night all.
Avatar Tue. 6/12/18 11:42pm Kris Holmes:
