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.

Wow, this is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

The bass is not really a focus of the mix
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s a shame that this songs sits in obscurity. It’s a lot of fun and great sampling opportunities.
Avatar 10:06pm Kris Holmes:

i really dig it, so much sax though.....
Avatar 10:07pm Little Danny:

oh I'll take it offa your hands, Kris
Avatar 10:07pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Doug Schulkind:

This James Brown fellow is pretty good. Has he made any other records?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

Nope. That’s the only one unfortunately.
Avatar 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

I don't think James Brown did much else Doug?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm JtotheK:

indeed! picked up some cool records. had a blast chatting and listening. looked at many many other great records that were out of my budget but fun to listen to.
Avatar 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Chresti, Hi Coel!
Avatar 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

sounds like fun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Matt from New Orleans:

Saw chocolate milk at jazz fest 5 years ago. Solid show.
Avatar 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm JtotheK:

yeah, was almost overwhelming flipping thru the bins ... oh here's Dance Called the Motion, oh here's Ted Taylor 'Somebody Always Trying' and oh here's Getting Back Into Circulation and oh here's Ray Bryant 'Up Above the Rock'.. and on and on and on.
Avatar 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha, yep, too much fire, at times like that i end up buying nothing usually :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Gil's life-imitates-art demise is one of the saddest damn things ever.
Avatar 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

so much talent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm JtotheK:

album from local artist Penny Goodwin has a great cover of lady day and john coltrane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

I got to see him at SOBs in 2007 in his first show after all his drug/legal issues in the 2000s. It was good but a little loose.
Avatar 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

is that Penny Goodwin new or old? i feel like i know it but might be thinking of something else?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm chresti:

Whuddya mean Mother Popcorn is okay funk you guess?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm JtotheK:

from the 70s, it was reissued though. there's a 45 of the track 'too soon your old' that apparently was also reissued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm chresti:

Avatar 10:34pm Kris Holmes:

ok it's the one i'm thinking of, it's good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm JtotheK:

kris it's like you were there this weekend ... les fleur 45 was spun and enjoyed. i couldn't remember what Ramsey LP it was on ... and that's it - Maiden Voyage!
Avatar 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

Just grabbed this nice German press of the LP at the flea market on Sunday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

Cornbread & Biscuits
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

This song was a huge Ian Levine discovery for the Northern Soul scene
Avatar 10:50pm Kris Holmes:

ahhh, Biscuits, that's it! Can you be my record brain Matt? Thanks!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm chresti:

Hey Kris! Just woke up and I can see missed an ancient Sir Doug. Damn! I guess I'll just stuff my mouth with Easter candy.
Avatar 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

hooray for candy Chresti
Avatar 10:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Not Chresti. Franco. Still can't think straight. More candy.
Avatar 10:54pm Kris Holmes:

ha, those two accounts must get confusing, log in, log out lol
Avatar 10:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Yup. One confuser, two chattering ninnys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

The only thing I remember about Madeline Bell is reading in her bio that she could wrap 75 chickens in an hour at the grocery store she worked in early in her career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

That ridiculous factoid embedded itself in my brain
Avatar 11:03pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, That is a very crucial skill for staying relevant in the digital age.
Avatar 11:03pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like colemine records. They seemed to have taken over for Daptone in releasing retrosoul.
Avatar 11:25pm Kris Holmes:

they are putting out some good stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

Did Ben re-record that song for the LP?
Avatar 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

not sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm chresti:

Who says a man isn't supposed to scratch backs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm chresti:

@Hole in my Head
Avatar 11:54pm Franco Twinkie:

...Which begs the question: Is it to late to make French toast?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm JtotheK:

thanks for the tunes, kris! cheers everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

Looks like Malaco for that song. I found this comp
Avatar 11:57pm Kris Holmes:
