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.

Hey there Candy & Coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm coelacanth∅:

'evening Candy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi Candy, Kris & C. See you bought some records this week Kris.
Avatar 10:07pm Kris Holmes:

New Years Eve, got into the back room of a store on the outskirts of town. It went well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

I was just looking at google maps and Batcave Vinyl popped out to me. How is that place?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

Who’s doing “The Frogman” on this one?
Avatar 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

I haven't been since they moved out to that new locale. Not really amongst my fave spots, very mainstream rock LP heavy. Not many 45s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

Mary Lou was a good find
Avatar 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

Not sure who is on BVs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like Ripsaw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm coelacanth∅:

Woohoo! i Love this song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

hey Matt!
Avatar 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

An absolute fave
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Candy-O'67:

It is amazing! Hope I run across it some day in a record store!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm WR:

huh, what. fell asleep reading Dionne Warwick tweets.

need to remember to stay off twitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm coelacanth∅:

that record represents the most i ever spent on a song.
(i've probably told this before)
...pre-internet and i called around. finally found one for $30.; then one for 20 in good shape.
now they're much less, according to discogs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Candy-O'67:

Hey WR!
Avatar 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

Dionne Warwick tweets are definitely overrated
Avatar 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

Coel, I do remember that story!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm coelacanth∅:

heh, sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

Eddie Piller would say more than that Kris. He’s a huge Dee Dee fan.
Avatar 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

Dee Dee definitely hung out less with Bacharach & David which was helpful for the soulful quotient of her 45s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Little Danny:

How am I supposed to listen to un-alphabetized 45s? I'm outta here.
Avatar 10:31pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

Original Chess Masters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Candy-O'67:

That Garnet Mimms and Koko Taylor were both so amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Little Danny:

I really dig a coupla of Turner's early R&B sides, but have nothing past the '50s from him.
  10:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Howdy, Kris and all! Hey, Candy-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Gina Bacon:

Hey and happy Tuesday!
It IS draining! Was just thinking the same...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Bob and Gina! Great to see y'all on here tonight!
Avatar 10:43pm Kris Holmes:

probably Original Chess Masters, thanks Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

hey big planet crew!
Avatar 10:44pm Kris Holmes:

Oh heya Bob & Gina, I have some BigPlanetNoise-esque 60s jams coming up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Gina Bacon:

Hey, Candy-O! coelacanthø!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Gina Bacon:

Excellent, Kris! Just in time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi WR, Danny, Bob & Gina

Hey, Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Little Danny:

hey y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Little Danny:

Love the sweet guitar lines in this Ethics.
Avatar 10:48pm still b/p:

Good evening. Digging The Ethics.
They make me want my baby back, when she ain't even gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm coelacanth∅:

  10:49pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Coel!!
  10:50pm bigplanetnoise:

Hi Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

s b/p maybe you could send her to the store or something to make it legit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Gina Bacon:

Hi, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Little Danny:

This sounded like a Thai record 'til Gene started singing.
Avatar 10:53pm Kris Holmes:

Ha! That exotic arrangement
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Little Danny:

Truly. Now I want a copy.
Avatar 10:56pm still b/p:

"I want my baby back...with my ginger beer and my change."
  10:58pm bigplanetnoise:

Ha! Thanks, Kris! Earholes are present.
Avatar 11:00pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, check for the Johnny Nash on the Youtube too because I think the arrangement is pretty much the same from memory?
Avatar 11:01pm Kris Holmes:

Getting the Shirley Ellis vibes from the backing singers on the Ned Towns
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Kris! So glad to be here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Little Danny:

I will, thanks Kris.
Avatar 11:02pm Kris Holmes:

Moments like these I wish JB was endorsed by Hammond instead of Vox :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Candy-O'67:

Sorry your sister's pup passed. It's so hard to lose our fur babies :(
Avatar 11:13pm still b/p:

Thought Long Line Rider was gonna get into Cool Hand Luke references...while the context is related, apparently song is about a real prison farm.
There's a clip of Darin doing it on Dean Martin Show I'll have to check later -- from his "I am NOT in a suit!" period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Candy-O'67:

I need to find that clip, b/p. I dug that song
Avatar 11:14pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah I need to see that clip too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Candy-O'67:

Diggin'' these background singers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

He also did Jerry Lewis too
  11:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Bring on those Voxes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Candy-O'67:

H-Town representing! My home town
  11:21pm bigplanetnoise:

I love this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Candy-O'67:

OMG, I love this Riddles song! Forgot about this one!
  11:25pm bigplanetnoise:

Quill or Mercury press?
Avatar 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

Mercury
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Candy-O'67:

I'm dancing around my kitchen rn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Scott67:

G'day Kris & Homeward stretches. Been listening while getting about the place doing stuff. Great show as usual mate. Thanks! 😎
  11:30pm bigplanetnoise:

That's it. It was good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

  11:37pm bigplanetnoise:

I had a blast putting it together.
Avatar 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

Ahhhh, it was Sundazed. Sorry I said Numero!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Scott67:

While on here I don't feel very Aussie! Just a child of the Universe.... maaaan!!
Avatar 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

I give out a lot of misinformation on the show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Scott67:

Fake Kiwi? 😉
Avatar 11:40pm Kris Holmes:

Being a Kiwi is nothing to fake lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hard to fake sounding like Murray 😜
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Scott67:

coelo, you're pulling another late one, not still "working" are ya??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Scott67:

Kiwis are some of the most genuine people I've ever met mate. Some real Aussies on the other hand can be a pain in the arse.
Avatar 11:44pm Kris Holmes:

Sorry for the Big Star Bob! I was pretty excited to find this on 45 though!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Candy-O'67:

Bob, I've got the Quill comp in my cart on your site! :))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Little Danny:

There was some Ardent discussion when I played Lawson and 4 More last week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Scott67:

coelo, relax! My shout for dinner mate. 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍺
Avatar 11:51pm still b/p:

I had an 11 o'clock spanikopita supper. Not wise and not healthy, hour-wise and sleep-proximity-wise.
  11:52pm bigplanetnoise:

Now I want spanikopita
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm Little Danny:

I too would like some spanikopita.
Avatar 11:53pm still b/p:
