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.

Hola Kris and home folks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hey Kris and Chresti. I went to the Dr John second line on Friday. What a joyful celebration. I live close to this mural of Dr John that takes up the side of a two story house and there’s been a party there every night since Thursday. I’m sure the neighbors are starting to get fed up.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:05pm Kris Holmes:

Hi guys!
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:05pm Kris Holmes:

Matt that sounds like a great party
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:06pm Franco Twinkie:

Righty-O, Daddy-O! Let us raise our....whatever you drink from...sippy cup, old shoe, silver chalice. ect, ect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

I stopped by like an hour ago to see if it was still happening and there were like 30-40 people out there listening to Dr John from someone’s car.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:11pm Franco Twinkie:

La Louisianne, that's a brand of coffee, right? With chicory, which is a ditch weed, correct?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m just glad that I got to see Buck so many times at the Stomp and other gigs around New Orleans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

Chicory is the root of endive
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh, okay. I had it pointed out to me while camping in Arkansas.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:20pm Kris Holmes:

i love coffee with chicory but Misa can't stand it so alas it is now banned in the Holmes household :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m with Misa. It served a purpose during coffee shortages in WWII on the home front but why ruin good coffee with a bitter root
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ll drink it as Vietnamese coffee because the condensed milk smoothes the flavors
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:28pm chresti:

roasted chicory
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

I saw Buck back up lil bob at the stomp
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:31pm chresti:

I've only had Louisianne back when I drank coffee that came in a can
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

I think I was still living in NY the first time I saw Buck and bob and just cane down for two weeks for jazz fest
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:33pm Little Danny:

Hey all
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:35pm Little Danny:

As someone who's never tried coffee with chicory, can someone describe its flavor?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:36pm Little Danny:

Byrne's "Lights Out" is a stormer, too
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

It's like a real dark earthy flavor
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

Usually it’s roasted in the darker end of the spectrum so it just sort of tastes like slightly bitterer earthier dark roast coffee. The flavor is noticeable but not overwhelming.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:37pm Franco Twinkie:

When he was busy dancing and throwing glitter, James Booker would bang the keys. Mr. Booker was a very unique fella.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, it's like drinking boiled dirt.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

Matt nailed it, an earthy, dark roast.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

I don't own Jerry Byrne "Lights Out" :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

There was a huge fight in my former office because they had been buying coffee with chicory for years but eventually most of the employees were from out of town originally and someone finally said something at a staff meeting and most everyone chimed in in agreement and the chicory was banished.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:42pm Little Danny:

Hmm. I am definitely curious now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:43pm Matt from New Orleans:

The older employees wanted it to stay but were significantly outnumbered but complained bitterly for almost a year after
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:43pm Little Danny:

Dude, it's a cheap 45 and you should buy it posthaste
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:44pm Little Danny:

Durned outside agitators
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:44pm Kris Holmes:

i know
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:45pm Matt from New Orleans:

I used to sit near the kitchen where the coffee machines are and was subjected to noise about the coffee daily for the way too long. It got so I would put on headphones as soon I sat down at my desk
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:45pm Little Danny:

Is there quality chicory coffee that could be purchased say from an online source? I really want to try it now
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

Dude, just go to Porters & buy a yellow tin of Cafe Du Monde in the coffee section, that's what I used to do :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:48pm Little Danny:

Oh awesome, I will - figured it was more of a specialty-only type thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

As I said to Danny last week, I got to see Mac play guitar at the Stomp in 2008.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:50pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, the oldsters sometimes have funny ways. I have a friend who's dad was on a chain gang in the south for been a vagrant. When my friend would scratch himself up as a kid, his dad would scrub his woulds with an onion soaked in turpentine. No Bactine for this guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:50pm Little Danny:

Rebenack played on the mid-'60s L.A. sessions that culminated in perhaps the greatest Spector-ian girl-group production of them all, the Cake's "Baby That's Me."
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:52pm Franco Twinkie:

For about five minutes Dr. John was in The Mothers Of Invention.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

I was going to include the Cake track but I wasn't sure if he played on that track or just the one he wrote on the album (which i don't have)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:56pm chresti:

It has a slightly smoky flavor to it, @Danny
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:57pm Little Danny:

It's funny, I pulled the LP out myself last night to see if I could nail down that track's personnel. Session musicians are listed on the album but not track-by-track alas. Pianists for the album sessions included Rebennack, Harold Battiste(!), and Mike Melvoin. Rebennack also listed as the sole organist
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:58pm Little Danny:

And do you like its flavor, Chresti?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

Seeing Mac play this with lil Buck was great
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 10:59pm Kris Holmes:

so if that track has organ.....it's definitely him, if piano only, your odds are less so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:00pm chresti:

No. I don't like smoky flavors. I've never had it freshly roasted
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

I think Shmuela Dr Ike’s wife played the sax part but I could be wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:01pm chresti:

I did like it better than Butternut, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:03pm Little Danny:

re: "Baby That's Me" - it's impossible to tell if organ is even in the mix. The track is just so drenched in echo and heavy production. Just the way I like my '60s pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:04pm Little Danny:

@Chresti: Huh. I'm surprised you don't like smoky flavors! I mean, no BBQ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:05pm Little Danny:

YES TREMOLO ON EVERYTHING PLZ
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:08pm chresti:

I like BBQed meat, not the sauces with smoke flavoring, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

I forgot he was on percussion I knew Donny Hathaway was on keys.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Help me out guys, I remember a Professor Longhair song where his baby doesn't love him so he's gonna stay home and eat weenies and beans. Sound familiar or did I hallucinate that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

This one is stretching it even more with him on backing vocals
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s a good song and apparently has never been performed live by the Stones
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:20pm Matt from New Orleans:

It has been performed live by Phish at a Halloween show where they covered Exile on Main St
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:22pm Kris Holmes:

don't know Franco......
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

Btw Kris are you into Kelly Finnigan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

Completely off topic I know
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

i know of him but have not listened to him yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:31pm Matt from New Orleans:

I won a limited edition red vinyl copy of his most recent LP but have no record player. If you and Matt do come to visit, it’s yours. It will just be sitting in the cardboard box it was sent in till then.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:32pm Kris Holmes:

Matt you should get a record player!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:33pm Little Danny:

Wait wut no record player Matt
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:34pm Franco Twinkie:

How did that happen, Matt?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

No fucking interest. I don’t need more clutter in my tiny apartment. I’ve just never owned records on my own. I ripped all my cds years ago and sold them while they were still worth something. I had loads of tapes as a kid for my Walkman but just bought CDs when I started buying music.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

That's probably smart. I'd be way further ahead in life financially if I hadn't squandered my earnings on vintage records, guitars & motorcycles lol
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:39pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, You're a young guy! I got the impression you were older.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m 41
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:40pm Little Danny:

But think of all the weird recluse friends you have now, Kris. *cough*
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

That to me is young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

I have plenty of friends who are vinyl addicts so can go hang out at their houses for my occasional fix.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:45pm Kris Holmes:

Dan you're not weird! Or, we're all a bit weird?
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:46pm Kris Holmes:

Misa calls me a "foreign weirdo" all the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:47pm chresti:

Well, I hope LA doesn't make your hair too melty@Kris, it's been triple digits, last couple of days
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:48pm Kris Holmes:

I cut it short so I don't have to use pomade at the moment, it's all natural. Or a cap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:49pm Little Danny:

We're all a bit weird here in OCD-adjacent collector corner, but thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

I still love you guys and appreciate the fruits of your addictions but I don’t need to join you in your little club
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:51pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks I think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:52pm Little Danny:

JOIN US MATT THE WATER IS WARM ONE OF US ONE OF US
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:53pm Matt from New Orleans:

I don’t even know what that meant but I really have no interest in getting sucked into collecting records I don’t have the room or disposable income
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

You make room, furniture becomes unimportant when you're living inbetweent teetering piles of vinyl. It's great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ll appreciate the awesome records from afar and deal with the overcompression of listening to them here or the Face or TWR or mixcloud
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:58pm Little Danny:

Thanks Kris, have a great time in California!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 11:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

I second that
  Tue. 6/11/19 11:59pm Dean:

There are addicted collectors, but there are also archivists. The 'net has so far demonstrated its inability to reconcile these two demands. The technology helps us only so far.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:59pm Franco Twinkie:

This was terrific. Thanks,Kris.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 11:59pm Kris Holmes:

I had a hour long back & forth text message dialog with one of my best friends over the merits of stereo vs mono original presses of 60s soul LPs on Sunday evening. This is what record collecting does to you , this is what keeps me up at nights lol
Avatar Wed. 6/12/19 12:00am Kris Holmes:

Thanks guys, still got next Tuesday's show before we fly out Wednesday!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/19 12:01am Franco Twinkie:

I put a record player on top of an ironing board this morning so I could listen ti Jimmy Reed out sioe in the heat.
  Wed. 6/12/19 12:01am Dean:

"What [it] does to you..." Why isn't that a reasonable question? It's a good question, if you want to answer it with intellectual honesty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 12:01am Little Danny:

Ah right! Anyway, 'til then!
