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.

Hi Kris and everyone!

Always wondered what it was about her boyfriend's back that so obsessed her.

Heyla heyla Kris, Chresti, Dean. You better watch out.

Greetings from the Valley
  Tue. 2/19/19 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Starting with “A”s in a new box?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

Hey guys. About 2/3rds through the first box actually hahahaha
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

fleep, you mean THE valley?... the mariana trench?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

nah, Death Valley?
  Tue. 2/19/19 10:13pm Alex L:

What up, my dude? Man, wish Antibalas was coming to TX on their upcoming tour. They're playing with Cochemea - you heard that new joint on Daptone?
  Tue. 2/19/19 10:14pm Dean:

San Fernando Valley. "The" valley.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:15pm Kris Holmes:

oh hey Alex. Antibalas are great live, wouldn't mind seeing them again. I have not checked Cochemea's new stuff, good?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:17pm coelacanth∅:

those valleys don't mean a lot to a sea dweller.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 10:18pm Little Danny:

South Texas also has its own colloquial "valley"
  Tue. 2/19/19 10:18pm Alex L:

it's purty killer
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

must check it out, actually thought of you today when another one of those Little Jr Jesse 45s on Vallardo came into FOS
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Hey Kris, Danny, Dean, et all!
  Tue. 2/19/19 10:23pm Dean:

Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Go Irving, go!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

playing that sort of stuff would never be allowed on a Nat King Cole record
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:56pm Franco Twinkie:

The Astors have a Brill building vibe about it.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

i can hear that a little bit
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 10:59pm fleep:

so country style involves livestock? hay bales? threshing machines?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:00pm Kris Holmes:

ha, maybe
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

Wrap it with country ham.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:03pm fleep:

Hot organ!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:06pm Kris Holmes:

fingers of fury shredfest
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

We’re getting dangerously close to the “B”s. I’m not sure I can handle that this late.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

it's nail biting stuff
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:17pm Kris Holmes:

some of these i have not listened to in forever
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:18pm Kris Holmes:

Who is gonna be the first "B" artist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:18pm chresti:

Have you played both sides of the "A"s?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:19pm Kris Holmes:

nah, just one side from each artist
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:22pm Dean:

The Bubbles
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

what? no.
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:25pm Dean:

Sorry. I'm not much of a fan of B- bands.
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

Ode to Billie Joe and Harper Valley PTA sound similar.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

would Baby Washington be in the bs or the ws?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

  Tue. 2/19/19 11:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

I hope there’s a Barons 45 coming up with you just talking about the Pacific NW
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

then my guess is Pearl Baily!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:38pm fleep:

Bar-Kays somewhere soon
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

I have not owned a Pearl Bailey record in well over a decade
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

...i have my records (& cds, but not cassettes) alphabetized as they appear, to avoid confusion. (except the word "the" is generally omitted)
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:39pm Kris Holmes:

The NOLA Barons are well represented & will be coming up as are the Bar Kays
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:40pm Dean:

I take it you have no The The records, @coel.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:40pm coelacanth∅:

...of course, there's still opportunity for confusion. (ie Brian Eno, sometimes known as "Eno")
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:41pm Kris Holmes:

i own zero Eno so no confusion here
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

Dean, i do have a record by the the - hence my "generally omitted".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:44pm chresti:

Robert Belfour
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:44pm Matt from New Orleans:

The NOLA Barons were an attempt by Imperial to build off of the Tacoma Barons once they broke up.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

there are many ways a system can be imperfect. "the gladiators", sometimes billed as "albert griffith & the gladiators"...but it's the same group, for another example.
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:45pm Dean:

But do you file it under "t" for "the," or "t" for "the"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:47pm chresti:

..."Poor Boy a Long Way From Home"
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:47pm coelacanth∅:

Baby Huey under b but not Baby Washington? not logical!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:47pm coelacanth∅:

oh Dean, "t".
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:48pm Dean:

By the way, folks, you're engaging my territory, namely, the application of rules for filing and authority control, the latter of which is far less impressive than it sounds. It has to do with establishing uniform names for people/ organizations/etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:48pm fleep:

I file albums by the predominant color of the cover art, in spectral order.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:49pm chresti:

The exception is for the first name "Baby"
  Tue. 2/19/19 11:49pm Dean:

There is in fact a library of legal guides published with color-coded covers.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

(thee baby cuffs would be under "t" also. that's not a the)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:50pm chresti:

Franco uses the color/pattern system
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

fleep by the front or by the title edge when filed vertically?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:52pm coelacanth∅:

chresti that's exactly why i do it as i do! i don't have to find out or remember whether it's his/her "given" name (which it is not in any of these cases) or a taken on name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:53pm fleep:

the front, i'm not that edgy
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

Washington is Baby Washington's last name, Huey is not Baby Huey's last name.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:55pm coelacanth∅:

i once considered filing them by "genre", but obviously that's impossible. i once entertained the idea of filing them chronologically; but that being pre-www would've been very challenging also.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

Kris, i see.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:58pm fleep:

Alphabetical thanks, Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/19 11:58pm chresti:

Thanks Kris! Good night everybody!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

categorical Thanks Kris!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/19 11:59pm northguineahills:

Got here for the end! UM uses a sample of the Honey Drippers for his intro. Thanks Kris!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/19 12:00am Kris Holmes:

Thanks guys, goodnight!
