Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from September 17, 2019 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.

Pat & Lolly - they had a surf band, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/17/19 11:01pm Little Danny:

Franco! A green Thai chicken & veggie curry over here in the house tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/17/19 11:02pm Little Danny:

Always dig hearing this Prunes side. So many pulsating rhythm instruments
Avatar Tue. 9/17/19 11:03pm Kris Holmes:

Franco, The Avantis.......later on Redbone
Avatar Tue. 9/17/19 11:03pm Franco Twinkie:

I had that Electric Prunes record when I was 11 years old. We though it was saucy because he says hormones. Not that we knew what hormones were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/17/19 11:04pm Little Danny:

Never woulda guessed at the Avantis connection
Avatar Tue. 9/17/19 11:04pm Kris Holmes:

I just found this clean copy that doesn't distort to all hell!!
Avatar Tue. 9/17/19 11:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, yellow Thai with mixed seafood over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/17/19 11:05pm Little Danny:

It sounds great pitched down, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/17/19 11:15pm Little Danny:

Crazy tempo changes for a Motown record
  Tue. 9/17/19 11:19pm Chas:

the chocolate watchband sounds more like the Stones sometimes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/17/19 11:20pm Little Danny:

One of my fave JLH sides on Vee-Jay
Avatar Tue. 9/17/19 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

Chocolate Watchband can get extremely Stonesey on things like their cover of Baby Blue for example. But hey, Food + Timepiece = Same band to me
Avatar Tue. 9/17/19 11:27pm still b/p:

Sundae Sundial, Omelette Chronometer...all good groups.
  Tue. 9/17/19 11:27pm CC:
