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.

this donald jenkins is amazing
Avatar Tue. 1/1/19 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, it was a new one to me, i didn't know he had later stuff, nice surprise
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/19 10:36pm Uncle Michael:

Agree completely about Aretha's Columbia stuff. The conventional wisdom is more or less correct but she was way too good to be stifled. Sure, she recorded some inappropriate repertoire at Columbia but even some of that is kind of great. Yes, she was paired with more sympathetic musicians and producers at Atlantic...and she wouldn't mean as much without Atlantic...but really listening to the Columbia catalog provides a wealth of pleasures and a few revelations.

Aretha's musical rebirth at Atlantic is a little like when Ray Charles stopped trying to sound like Nat Cole. That said, I like that early Ray Charles stuff. It's not what makes him an important figure...but the records are still good.
Avatar Tue. 1/1/19 10:43pm Kris Holmes:

Yep, some of Aretha's best jazz sides are on Columbia, as well as her toughest R&B.
Avatar Tue. 1/1/19 10:44pm Kris Holmes:

Also agree the early Ray Charles stuff is just fine
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/19 10:46pm Uncle Michael:

I better push the keyboard back. Tomorrow is going to be a real adjustment and the day starts early. Thanks for the music, Kris. Happy New Year to you and yours.

Night Michael.

Great set. Had to switch browsers to say so: comments apparently don't work in Firefox.
  Tue. 1/1/19 11:33pm tullius:

Not often you hear some Tx. two step and La. aldus roger in the same show. Keep up the good work, people are silently listening.
Avatar Tue. 1/1/19 11:33pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks. Yeah comments are also a pain in Safari on iPhone which is unfortunately how i usually tune it but don't comment. Glad you made the switch though!
