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.

I’m here Kris. Larry did a boogaloo show last night.

Hi Matt. I missed Larry last night. I saw some of the tracks though. He always plays good stuff.

I was about to say that voice doesn't sound like Lee Morgan, the the playlist refreshed to show Kai and now hear him soloing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

There’s a part of sidewinder that seemed to quote the beat goes on
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:10pm Doug Schulkind:

The Long Way is the right way. Good evening, fellow travelers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Or the opposite as sidewinder is older

Evenin' Kris and all!

Heya good chresti

Hi Danny

Hello Kris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:26pm Little Danny:

Have you ever heard Ruby's LP on Zodiac from around that time, Kris? I haven't, definitely curious tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/3/19 10:26pm chresti:

wow kettle drums! @He don't really love you
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 10:28pm Kris Holmes:

I have never had the LP Dan but I might have the mp3s saved somewhere, I remember it being good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:32pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like the first one better than the second Zodiac album. The second one was recorded in Memphis and they were trying for an early 70s stax sound but just couldn’t nail it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

Both of the zodiac albums were reissued in the Netherlands last year
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:34pm Little Danny:

Thanks Matt. Makes sense re: 1st vs. 2nd LPs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

It wasn’t cut at Stax but in Memphis at Universal
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I was saying that the sound was sort of Carla Thomas early 70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:40pm Matt from New Orleans:

I can’t even remember which tracks I liked over others as I haven’t listened to them in years. I downloaded an LP rip of Black Ruby a while back as there was no cd issue at that time.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 10:41pm Kris Holmes:

Ah gotcha, in any case, I'll make a note to go revisit but will prob forget to do so. Everyone was all about Black Ruby back in the late 90s/early 00s, it was a grai, still is I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:45pm Matt from New Orleans:

Black Ruby is going for about $200 for a VG+ copy with a bad sleeve and another $60 for a VG+ LP/sleeve
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

On discogs
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 10:50pm Kris Holmes:

that's a pretty wide price bracket lol good ol discogs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:57pm Matt from New Orleans:

Jerry Blavat is an interesting character. Suspected mobster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

Jerry Blavat is an interesting character. Lots of organized crime connections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

The page was acting weird. Sorry about that.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 11:00pm Kris Holmes:

sounds interesting but not uncommon for the time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

a little more than some but not totally out of the blue
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:04pm Little Danny:

Man I love this Citations. That echo
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 11:05pm Kris Holmes:

Reverb set to 10 lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m putting the phone down Kris but will keep listening.

Wow, conga rhythms way up front on this Pauline & Bobby. Love it
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

I don't think Bobby Jones or Pauline Chivers every cut a dud 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:25pm Little Danny:

Didn't know either artist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:27pm Little Danny:

Terribly hot and dry summer out here too. A browner shade of pale
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:30pm Little Danny:

Reminiscent of the Ch(y)mes' also-great "My Baby's Gone Away." Same label. Man those harmonies are gorgeous
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

Chimes/Chymes, same

Yessir
  Tue. 9/3/19 11:42pm Dean:

Man, Chris Strachwitz first(?) recorded this guy in '65. I hang out at Strachwitz's record store, and he's there a good percentage of the time. He's a treasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:44pm Little Danny:

@Dean: he really is a treasure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:45pm Little Danny:

Man, I don't know why anyone would dislike the accordion, either
  Tue. 9/3/19 11:45pm Dean:

He and I share a birthday, too. But he has a few years on me. He's also really tall.
  Tue. 9/3/19 11:47pm Dean:

Cripes, he was recording Sonny Simmons around the time I was born!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/19 11:48pm Kris Holmes:

Strachwitz is awesome, total legend
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/3/19 11:50pm nostrangerer:

Thanks for tunes tonight. Good funky time had by all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:51pm Little Danny:

I've spent many many many hours at the Strachwitz Frontera Collection, an incredible indexed website of his Latin music collection with images, audio, discographical info, etc. frontera.library.ucla.edu

See, Dean?! Technology is sometimes on the right side of the fence
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/19 11:57pm Little Danny:

Great 'n' rare one this Castro.

Thanks for the tunes Kris!
  Tue. 9/3/19 11:58pm Dean:

Dude, I started to learn to program in '76. I ran a network and enterprise system during the '90s. I know the advantages and limitations of technology, just as I know to use a can opener to open cans, rather than to hammer a nail. The problem is our boundless capacity to abuse technology, or take it for granted, or assume it will solve our problems. As a librarian, I assure you that what makes that Frontera site work is not merely the technology. It's the intellectual added value in, e.g., the metadata.

There's this corridor leading west from the main room in Strachwitz's record store to the restrooms and so forth. There you'll find boxes labeled something like, "Rarities from Chris's collection." They consist of boxes of his record collection, including stuff like the Frontera material, that he's unloading. Kind of amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 12:00am Little Danny:

Thanks Dean, an excellent response
