Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from June 23, 2020 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.

Guess you’re back to being stuck in your house Kris.
Avatar 9:54pm Kris Holmes:

Nope, Governor refuses to shut down, we're just apparently gonna live with the virus forever now :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

He did encourage people to stay home today. Just won’t mandate it.
Avatar 10:00pm Kris Holmes:

This is Texas, we don't listen to "encouragements"!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Matt from New Orleans:

Not here either at least in Cajun Country
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

You’re having internet issues
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

The stream popped in very briefly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm chresti:

Hi Kris and people in the home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

Solid cover
Avatar 10:06pm Kris Holmes:

Misa is streaming a movie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

No movies on Tuesday night Misa. Read a book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm chresti:

A favorite Coasters tune, thanks.
Avatar 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Chresti, yes i love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like Pineapple Juice too
Avatar 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

Jugo De Pina is maybe my favourite mexi-cumbia. Haven't met a version I disliked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

I remember hearing this for the first time on The Chess Story box set and loving it
Avatar 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

it's recorded loud, it might have been distorting the cartridge!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

I got the box about 20 years ago for the blues as that was where my interest lay at the time but I discovered a whole bunch of other fantastic music I’d never heard before.
Avatar 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

Chess is such a diverse & incredible catalog, so much more than Muddy, Chuck & The Wolf
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

I got it after reading Spinning Blues into Gold. One of my best purchases. I found it at a record store and even though it was OOP as they only made 10K it was being sold at the already to me outrageous retail price. I used some of my college graduation gifts to buy it.
  10:30pm Carmichael:

Heya Kris and influencers.
Avatar 10:32pm Kris Holmes:

Loved that Spinning Blues book, I don't even know if I remember the box set you're talking about
Avatar 10:32pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Carmichael
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Matt from New Orleans:

www.discogs.com...
Says it’s a European release but I definitely bought a US issue.
  10:36pm Carmichael:

I don’t have the Chess box, dangit. Got the Cobra biox and the Paula/Jewel box though.
Avatar 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

Looks killer, definitely don't have it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

Allmusic’s review from back then confirms that it was import only.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m enjoying this garage rock section
Avatar 10:48pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks, some weirdos I don't get to play often
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

Whomever put this on Discogs labeled this Funk/Soul. Does the flip more resemble that?
  10:49pm Carmichael:

Little Bit O Soul was the big Music Explosion hit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yes Carmichael
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Matt from New Orleans:

The vinyl for Carlo’s is really groovy
Avatar 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

Which one says Funk/Soul Matt?
Carlo's label does look cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Matt from New Orleans:

Judd & Lisa
Avatar 10:57pm Kris Holmes:

Nah, not funk/soul iirc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

I figured as much. I guess that sometimes happens when most everything is user generated.
Avatar 10:59pm Kris Holmes:

Some people have no clue
Avatar 11:00pm Kris Holmes:

But to be sure I'll check the flip tomorrow, it may have aspects of blue eyed soul or something

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Love that Excello sound
  11:05pm Carmichael:

I didn’t know there was an Excello sound. I have Slim Harpo doing Don’t Start Crying Now on Excello. Did sound the same, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

They were mostly recorded in Crowley, LA by JD Miller
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

He could definitely pass for James Brown’s brother
Avatar 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

yes, borrowed heavily
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

I see it mentioned on his discogs but my first thought when seeing his photo was being reminded of James’ infamous mug shot.

My random thoughts as I start to get tired

Team Holmes just had to kill the hugest roach that just came flying out of the chimney
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

Those mfers fly and gross me out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Matt from New Orleans:

Picture sleeve with an almost jump suit looking outfit?
Avatar 11:34pm Kris Holmes:

not sure, this is a white label promo in company sleeve
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Matt from New Orleans:

The one I referenced is an EP www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

I think the US market should have embraced the picture sleeve but I guess it cost more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm WR:

Howdy folks. Interesting looking playlist, thank the drummer for the archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

Billie Joe recorded a ton of Joe South songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Matt from New Orleans:

This one hit big on the Northern scene www.discogs.com...
Avatar 11:51pm Kris Holmes:

Right, that's always the one I think I'm buying hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Kris. Enjoyed the tunes.
Avatar 11:55pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks for listening Matt, & thanks everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm WR:
