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 was about to apologize to you for being a minute late but you actually owe me the apology

yeah sorry, my laptop wouldn't start up :(

My emoticon didn’t make it. Just playing.

Larry and Vincent have been extolling the Keystone Soul Weekender for the last two days. I’ve never actually attended something like that. Not even an alldayer or allnighter.

Hi Dan

Yeah I saw Larry's posts looked like a fun time. The big US one in Seattle is this weekend, I went last year & while it was fun seeing everyone, I think my days of all soul weekends are done, it's just too much
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:12pm Little Danny:

Love this Derek Martin
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

it's so epic
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:15pm Kris Holmes:

Dan will I see you Saturday?
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:17pm Little Danny:

No, sadly. We're down to one car at the moment and the timing didn't work out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:17pm chresti:

Hi Kris and company!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:18pm WR:

Glad you laptop still functioning. I am just hearing that Drifters tune, I count the tears, for the first time. Striking similarities with Let's Live for Today performed by the Grassroot and coming from an Italian song. Really?
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:18pm Kris Holmes:

Ah, bummer Dan :(
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:19pm Little Danny:

@Kris: tell me about it!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:21pm Little Danny:

Oh man. Waking up from a KFC coma to do a show sounds mighty disorienting
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:22pm still b/p:

Was treated to a KFC pot pie today. Anticipated with some apprehension, but it was goooood, even if checklist of its unfavorable factors might make it a Bad Food Bingo winner.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:23pm Little Danny:

Love the 'roots' "Let's Live for Today"
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:26pm Little Danny:

❤️❤️❤️
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

This sounds like Tom Jones
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

Not the vocals per se but more arrangement
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:27pm chresti:

Bad Food Bingo

Larry played this last night
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

dammit Larry, I saw he played the Betty Everett I played last week too
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:31pm Kris Holmes:

KFC hangover isn't pleasant
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:32pm WR:

From the wikipedia page for the Grassroots song seems that the session producer / song co-writer PF Sloan has publicly acknowledged the influence of the Drifters song.en.m.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:32pm Kris Holmes:

stealing from the best
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

A little mellower Roy Head than I’ve seen in concert. Dr Ike always makes him play uptempo numbers.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:34pm Kris Holmes:

from 1972, his country period, but he cut that in Memphis with Steve Cropper, gettin' bluesy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

Has anyone watched the Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore?
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:38pm Kris Holmes:

watched it the other night, fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:38pm WR:

Not yet seen it, looking forward to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I thoroughly enjoyed it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:44pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

Mr Fine Wine played a song by Frank Lucas recently. I remember thinking about the drug kingpin in Harlem when I saw the name and then he made sure to say that it wasn’t that guy.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

Nice cameo from Poobah Records in LA dressed up as Dolphin's of Hollywood too
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

Matt, ha, indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

It was last Friday actually. He played Chico(The Player).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 10:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

Did this song do anything chart wise?
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:51pm Kris Holmes:

lol, right there with Carolyn Sullivan "Dead"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:52pm chresti:

His life has gone to the dogs
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 10:53pm Little Danny:

That "Suicide" was some deep soul morbidity. Great stuff
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 10:54pm Kris Holmes:

Gene being super dramatic
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, I'm in a singing group that practices at Poobah Records where all the opening shots were filmed. We would go in after the film crew was done for the day. Aside from my personal interest in the story of Rudy Ray Moore, who I actually saw perform, I think It's a great movie! I Loved Rudy's filthy mouth. What a guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 11:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

Actually I got messed up by it starting last week in the U.K. On the morning of the 27th, I went to listen to the radio show I listen to every week at 9 AM and it wasn’t on. It took me a bit before I even thought to look it up online.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, now would usually be sign off & bedtime
  Tue. 11/5/19 11:08pm Dean:

Which Poohbah? Walnut or Colorado?
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

colorado
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:09pm Franco Twinkie:

That was from Jackies album Laurel Canyon. I like all pictures of Ms. DeShannon on the inside of the cover standing around looking lost in a shirt that looks like a table cloth.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

ha, i've never had the LP but that sounds funny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 11:13pm chresti:

Love the Wallace Bros
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Don't get me wrong, Kris, I love Jackie. I met her and she is really nice.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:30pm Franco Twinkie:

It sounds like The Clovers need some Beano.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

I just read something funny about Jerry Lee Lewis. When he opened for The Doors at the Forum, and all the morons in the audience were disrespectful after he played his ass off, he thanked the people who liked him, but told the rest to go have a heart attack!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:40pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:43pm still b/p:

Jerry Lee Lewis song came on the radio today and the person I was with characterized him as "a one-trick pony, right?"
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Maybe so, but what a trick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 11:49pm chresti:

It sounded like the Wailers backing Johnny Nash
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 11:53pm Matt from New Orleans:

Did we ever leave the B’s back then?
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

I think we started the Cs?
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

I'd have to go back through the playlists & check
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 11:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

I just remember feeling like the B’s were never going to end
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:55pm Kris Holmes:

same lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 11:57pm Matt from New Orleans:

This is the slick Bobby Bland I’m used to not the northern obsession with shoes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/5/19 11:57pm WR:

Thank you for the Long Way Home sounds tonight.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/19 11:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Good night Kris, and thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/19 11:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Kris. Enjoyed the show.
