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.

Not as bad now but started off all toasty

Howdy, Kris, Matt, WR! Let's groove!!

G'day Kris & Home Runners!

Avatar 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

Hi everyone, welcome back.Hook & Sling Instrumental is indeed the new intro.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

Calvin eventually became a big time drug dealer and spent the last 18 years of his life in prison

Hi Kris... and all you long haulers!!!...:)

Dang Matt!

greetings Kris and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm coelacanth∅:

Great impressions track
... but i guess that's a redundant statement
Avatar 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, a high % are great lol
  10:20pm CC:

Yeah... some people will think that it's party time!!!...:)
  10:22pm CC:

Like some people probably thought Andrew was the Sour Puss and decided to get rid of him???...:)
Avatar 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

CC, it's a terrible idea :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Scott, Coel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

I don’t envy any small businesses that continue to require masks. I have a feeling things will get ugly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Scott67:

G'day Candy-O! 😎🤙
  10:29pm CC:

People are so itchy they don't even want to consider the possibility that variants can screw everything up???...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

We now have a mass vaccination site and a hemp convention taking up space at the convention center this week. From the pictures I saw, people were wearing masks but I can’t see how it’s safe to be in an indoor public space like that all day long.
Avatar 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

Lots of silly people out there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

hi Candy, Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Top o' the evening, Mr. Holmes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

Doug your premium is sounding really good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yours too Kris
  10:40pm CC:

Tight!!!...:)
Avatar 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

Hey there Doug
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Doug Schulkind:

@Matt from New Orleans
I'm drooling over it, too. Virtually all the tracks come from the collection of a fellow in Durban, South Africa, who has more than a thousand 78rpm beauties, many of which have never been reissued in any format. The kindness and generosity of this fellow is gobsmacking. As is, of course, the music.
Avatar 10:47pm Kris Holmes:

Doug's is way more interesting than mine
  10:49pm CC:

As George Harrison would say it's all in the mind you know?!?...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Scott67:

G'day coel! 😎🤙
  10:51pm CC:

As Wet Willie would say you just got to keep on smiling!!!...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Right, Kris. "Devastating Deep Soul Heartbreakers" sounds so... lightweight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Little Danny:

Hi Kris, hi fronds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hey Danny
  10:57pm CC:

She crawls on her belly like a reptile!!!...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Candy-O'67:

Haha, CC!
Avatar 10:57pm Kris Holmes:

Ha Doug. Hi Dan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is that the first time you’ve played Ohio Players from 1973 Kris?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm WR:

Deacon John! is he still active Matt?
Avatar 11:02pm Kris Holmes:

I think I've played Ohio Players before?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yes indeed WR. I dislike him personally but his music is good. I’ve seen him many times. I believe he’s still the head of the musician’s union down here.
  11:03pm CC:

Oh man I think I'm settling into that place now!!!...good tune Kris!!!...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

5 times now
Avatar 11:05pm Kris Holmes:

Really? Just 5? That song or all songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

All songs. 5 different songs.
  11:07pm CC:

Words make all the difference...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

My bad 4 different songs. 5 plays.
Avatar 11:08pm Kris Holmes:

Well that's not bad, 1 Ohio Players song every year!
  11:09pm CC:

I believe that the baritone sax???...:)
Avatar 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

Tenor
  11:10pm CC:

I'll be darned!!!...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Zetti:

I can never get enough of the Ohio Players.
  11:15pm wenzo llc.:

did they announce the Bunny Wailer tribute show yet?
Avatar 11:17pm Kris Holmes:

Ah, not that I've seen but if I get time at the end I can pull out some Wailers 45s to play in tribute
  11:20pm CC:

This music goes great with these chili dogs!!!...:)
  11:20pm wenzo llc.:

The Wicked makes me feel much more than ALRIGHT. brings me back 20 years!! thanks DJ!!
  11:21pm wenzo llc.:

& awesome!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

@Danny Looks like you’re going to be busy with Drummer Stream on the 18th
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Candy-O'67:

Really love this Short Stopping ❤️
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

Putting phone down. Have a good night everyone. Enjoyed your bargain finds tonight Kris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Little Danny:

One of the great Hi Records productions.
Avatar 11:36pm Kris Holmes:

Night Matt. Agree Danny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Little Danny:

@Kris: What do you think was used for its percussive "rain" sound effects? Conga drum? Muted guitar strings?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Candy-O'67:

Night Matt
Avatar 11:40pm Kris Holmes:

It was Electric Timbales, an obscure instrument.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Little Danny:

Ah, cool, okay. Love how every acoustic instrument got electrified at some point, however briefly, in the '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

aka amplified timbales?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

is the pickup on the bottom head?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Little Danny:

Hi coela! It sounded like there was more to it than just being wired with a pickup but I don't know.
Avatar 11:44pm Kris Holmes:

No, it was a weirdo little electronic gadget of the time, basically a "timbale" synth patch which didn't really sound like timbales
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Little Danny:

Or maybe I'm picturing Roto Toms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Little Danny:

Solid info, Kris, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Little Danny:

Oh yeah Quiet Elegance! Love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

funny, i've heard that song so many times but wasn't listening that closely this time (no reflection on how much i love the song)
now that i think about it i always just figured it was a synthesiser
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Little Danny:

I'd be pretty stoked to find a clutch of Hi Records deadstock. Any copies of Ann Peebles's "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" in there? (My all-time Peebles favorite, I think.)
Avatar 11:51pm Kris Holmes:

No Playhouse unfortunately
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

^ from that same phenomenal album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Little Danny:

That era for Hi LPs! Some of the highest killer-to-filler ratios in the '70s soul LP game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Little Danny:

"I Don't Lend My Man" was great! And new to me.
Avatar 11:56pm Kris Holmes:

Hi was so great & were even late to disco so their 1976-77 stuff doesn't uniformity suck either
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Little Danny:

This Sunny 45 is also great and new to me. "Sitting In the Park" really got around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

haha
... it's good that not everyone has forgotten that most disco sucked!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

Bunny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm WR:

thank you Kris. laters all. bye bye Bunny Wailer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Little Danny:

Thanks Kris! Always a pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

some of my favorite versions of Bob Marley songs are Bunny's on Bunny sings the wailers
Avatar 12:00am Kris Holmes:

thanks everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am coelacanth∅:

(he also did the best johnny too bad, in my opinion)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01am coelacanth∅:

Thanks Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01am Candy-O'67:

Thanks, Kris! Enjoyed it, as always!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04am Scott67:
