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.

Good evening folks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi Kris & WR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Candy-O'67:

Evening, Kris and WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi Candy. Guess Kris is having issues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

There he is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

You found it for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

This is my favorite song of theirs. It cracks me up.
Avatar 10:05pm Kris Holmes:

Literally received an email at 9pm stating 2 covid cases at work announced this evening :( terrified
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Candy-O'67:

This is a great song, Matt. I love J. Geils' version of it, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

That’s rough. What’s next at school?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Candy-O'67:

Sorry to hear that, Kris :(
Avatar 10:08pm Kris Holmes:

Guess I'll find out more tomorrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

Good luck. Stay safe.
Avatar 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

thanks, it's getting a little too close for comfort
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

Picked up more records?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Candy-O'67:

I'm sure you'll be fine, Kris. If it makes you feel any better, anyone in my general sphere that has gotten it has recovered. Luckily I haven't been exposed to anyone that close, but they've all recovered
Avatar 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, went back to the 25c spot to finish the new load
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

This one has some hiss but it’s still loud and not noticeably distorted.
Avatar 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

But you just never know how it's gonna hit you though, the uncertainty
Avatar 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

styrene copy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Candy-O'67:

I hear ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm WR:

Vitamin D, get your sleep, eat healthy and hopefully if you did get exposed it doesn't develop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

A whole hog or just the shoulder?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Candy-O'67:

I second that, WR. Boost your immune system. That's what I've been doing this whole time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Candy-O'67:

Congrats on the new smoker, Kris!
Avatar 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

I think most of a hog but not whole
Avatar 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

The smoker is kind of old but should last a season or two in order to get my bearings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Matt from New Orleans:

If it’s a wild pig, it will have far less fat that the typical farmed pig. So you’ll have to make adjustments if you look at recipes online.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Candy-O'67:

Sounds like a good starter one for ya
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm WR:

Brisket, low and slow. One of my dad's passions. He made smokers for his friends, was forever tweaking wood chip blends. I've never indulged, live in an apt. in NYC.
Avatar 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

WR, your neighbours would probably be less than impressed lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Candy-O'67:

Kris, I've got friends in Coupland who have a pig farm. Their bacon is incredible and they sell whole and half hogs, too, I believe. They sell other things too. You should check them out, Martin Heritage Farms. Coupland is just east of Elgin
Avatar 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

nice, sounds fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve passed through Candy when going between Taylor & Elgin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Candy-O'67:

Cool, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Candy-O'67:

Tell Misa I'm looking forward to getting my Thanksgiving goodies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Candy-O'67:

Gotta love some Conway Twitty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m going to email Misa. I’ve ghosted her while I pondered the postage costs. I don’t care about getting them next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Candy-O'67:

He sure does sound different here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m digging this version. Not sure I’ve heard it before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Candy-O'67:

Matt, it was a lot to send to my parents in North Louisiana, but we'll worth it! My dad loved the cookies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm WR:

Something earlier today put me in a mood to binge on Alex Chilton...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Candy-O'67:

What year did that Conway Twitty come out, Kris?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

1963
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Candy-O'67:

Yeah, Breakaway! Can't wait! I live so close to there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Candy-O'67:

Thx, Matt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I think the stream interrupted you for a sec there while you were talking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

Again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Candy-O'67:

It did on mine, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Candy-O'67:

And then just on this Congo song
Avatar 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

ah it shows a dropout :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

I was just listening to Congolese music on Monday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Candy-O'67:

Love that Box Tops song, WR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

Some really good stuff on GNP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Matt from New Orleans:

I love Machito at the Crescendo
Avatar 10:48pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, really varied catalog, very interesting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is your label orange or white? No orange for sale on Discogs. One white for over $11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Candy-O'67:

I like this better than the popular version of When a Man Loves a Wonan
Avatar 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

This is the white with blue print
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

This is solid
Avatar 10:56pm Kris Holmes:

I rate Tommy McLain but wasn't sure he could nail this, I was wrong, nails it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Candy-O'67:

Totally!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Candy-O'67:

Ooooh, I love Hello Stranger!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Matt from New Orleans:

Far better than Michael Bolton’s effort
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Candy-O'67:

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

LOL, truth
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

This is a solid version on the budget label
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm WR:

McLain did it, yes.

Please don't pollute my mind mentioning Bolton. LOL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

The anonymous Alpha Zoe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm WR:

Solid version by the Sensational Nightingales. From the bass singer to the lead.
Avatar 11:01pm Kris Holmes:

I think a researcher found her a while ago? I feel like I read an interview with her online?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

Loving their Facebook profile
m.facebook.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Discogs lists about a dozen names under Alpha Zoe. Who knows? I have no clue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Matt from New Orleans:

Jo Jo Wallace is looking amazing for 94
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

Guitar Slim song?
Avatar 11:06pm Kris Holmes:

yep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm WR:

Yes! Guitar Slim song. Never saw Guitar Slim but did see Earl King do a killer version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

How old were you in 1959 WR?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm WR:

LOL, right, wouldn't be expected to be going to the Do Drop Inn when I was in the 2nd grade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Candy-O'67:

So fab you to got see Earl King, WR! I bet he put on a hell of a show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

I saw Earl as well Candy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

He was great every time I saw him when I was younger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

www.geocities.ws...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

That website is ancient. I think this might be what you were talking about Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Candy-O'67:

I figured you did, Matt! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Candy-O'67:

I bet he was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

a-nickel-and-a-nail.myshopify.com...
This is probably it. I take it back. This is more recent and extensive.
Avatar 11:17pm Kris Holmes:

Matt you win the Googlenator, awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm WR:

Larry Grogan's Toussaint show recently was nice. Listened to it twice already.
Avatar 11:19pm Kris Holmes:

ah cool, Larry has good taste
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

WR Larry did a fantastic four part tribute when he passed. It’s on his blog. He recently did another four part series of his 70s work which is on the blog as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm WR:

This Dorsey tune and a couple by K-Doe were of rhe few primary versions he played, many were good lesser known versions of Toussaint songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Matt from New Orleans:

When Larry mentioned that someone called him a Toussaint evangelist, that was me
Avatar 11:22pm Kris Holmes:

Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm WR:

Thanks Matt. I have gone to Larry's web site but have got lazy and usually just choose one of the WFMU streams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve read three books about Sun Records. Good Rockin Tonight, Sam Phillips The Man Who Invented Rock n Roll & Sun Records An Oral History
Avatar 11:32pm Kris Holmes:

The Sam Phillips is the one I'm currently really enjoying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

I take that back. I also read Sun King the life & times of Sam Phillips...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Matt from New Orleans:

That is a little excessive having seen that written down
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

They’re all really good too
Avatar 11:36pm Kris Holmes:

ha! I remember the Good Rockin Tonight one being good too at least
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

I love books about music. I’ve read hundreds.
Avatar 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

same
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m surprised this didn’t hit on the Northern Circuit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm WR:

Kris, you're hurting me with these Elvis movie releases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

It seems like something that could get pitched down and maybe be popcorn accessible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m just tired and being silly now
Avatar 11:41pm Kris Holmes:

No you're right, they get played. Northern & Popcorn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm WR:

Ah, better, even with the crackling, that sounded better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like Laura Nyro’s version of High Heeled Sneakers on her Live at the Bottom Line album
Avatar 11:43pm Kris Holmes:

never met a version i didn't like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm WR:

I wonder if that is Earl Palmer drumming on that Sylvia Hill recording. Snappy.
Avatar 11:50pm Kris Holmes:

it's highly possible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Matt from New Orleans:

King Creole isn’t terrible. I’ve seen much worse movies. Jailhouse Rock & Viva Las Vegas are ok too. Those are the three I’ve seen more than once.
Avatar 11:53pm Kris Holmes:

Jailhouse Rock isn't bad, agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Kris. Some solid finds in the 25 cent bin. I think you’ll make some profit off of these. Have a good night everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm WR:

Good night all.
Avatar 11:57pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Matt!
Avatar 11:57pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks WR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Candy-O'67:

Thanks, Kris! Another fantastic night! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Candy-O'67:

Nightr, Matt and WR!
