  4. I want to jihad against HHH

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  5. I want to jihad against Derrick and Antichrist

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  6. Wow. Someone using my name twice again. I don’t jihad against anyone. But I am flattered that someone likes me enough to use my screen name. Must be some white trash redneck with a crush on me.

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  7. HHH/Derrick/Anti and his other aliases: There’s a cancer in your soul and it gets bigger with each racial and ethnic slur. No matter how many times you spew these slurs they won’t chase away the feelings of inadequacy and inferiority gnawing at you. If you were confident in yourself and your abilities you wouldn’t feel the compulsion to post the same hateful bigotry day after day.

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  8. Go get ‘em, Mark.
    We got you…

  10. Anybody who is a supporter of Ilian ( Towelhead) Omar ‘ Alexandria Cossio Cortez and watches Don Lemonade and Rachel Mad Cow definitely believes in Jihad and Sharia Law . That person is Mark .

  11. Dallas Cowboy Demarcus Lawrence snubs a small child seeking an autograph because he’s wearing a giants jersey .The kid happened to be white . He said wear the right jersey kid . Imagine Tom Brady or another white player doing that to a black player ‘ cries of racism.The classiest athletes are hockey players . Oh that’s right they’re mostly white .

    By HHH on Sep 12, 2019

  12. B.B. Martin and Tony Pizza: it does purport to be public domain, and are over 50 years old now. Perhaps that explains it.

    By ScarRad on Sep 12, 2019

  13. Thanks for this Big O - The first bootleg I ever bought was very similar track listing to this. Bought in Amersfoort The Netherlands in around 1972 it was a brilliant little single album boot with the greatest artwork by Peter Pontiac ‘The Little White Wonder’
    Check it here if interested as the artwork alone is worth a grin!

    Thanks Big O as ever ;)

    By swappers on Sep 12, 2019

  14. That nigger would have been horse whipped back in the 1950s and 60s for doin that to a little white kid . The classiest athlete I ever met was Brooks Robinson who always took the time to sign for kids . Goddamned niggers got no class . Why the he’ll would you want a niggers autograph anysway .

  15. Mark has turned this website into the cesspool that it has become. Spewing all his left wing hatred snowflake ideology. Whitey has now become the bad guy and Black Lives Matter. He is so typical

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Sep 12, 2019

  16. I want a fatwa against HHH, Anti and Derrick

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  17. These 3 racist idiots are one and the same person and refuse too accept their multiple personalities

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  18. “Mark has turned this website into the cesspool…”

    Good one, ANTIHUMAN. Mirror much?

    By The Universe on Sep 12, 2019

  19. I am not a supporter of AOC and the rest of The Squad. I am as appalled by them as I am by Trump. I despise extremes from both sides of the aisle. And at least I only go by one screen name. Hhh has added my name to his long list. But that play-off I understand him wishing he could be me.

    By Mark on Sep 12, 2019

  20. Just me Mark. Sorry to disappoint. Can’t speak for Jerry ‘ Antichrist ‘ Derrick etc

    By HHH on Sep 12, 2019

  21. You’re seeing shadows Mark . Get the smoke out your eyes

    By HHH on Sep 12, 2019

  22. Minnesota Rep Ilhan (Towel head) Omar on 9/ 11 . Somebody did something.. That statement completely insulting to the 9/11 victims and their families. She should be deported to Syria so she can be reunited with her ISIS superiors.

    By HHH on Sep 12, 2019

  23. One of many Manchurian candidates currently holding public office. Alexandra Cossio Cortez is another

    By HHH on Sep 12, 2019

  24. Hey Anti . They is is some Cactus shows here . Just search for it man downloaded one from Rochester 71 . Motherfuckin awesome man .

    By Derrick on Sep 12, 2019

  25. Now just get some fuckin Led Zep . That would hit the spot ‘ also Sabbath with Ozzy and Tom Petty

    By Derrick on Sep 12, 2019

  26. This Dylan shit here is great with the band . Sorry Anti . Still like Bob .I try not to think about him being a Jew bastard. Maybe it’s a mistake and he ain’t really a Jew .

    By Derrick on Sep 12, 2019

  27. Yo Derrick, Anti, HHH - Jimmy Kunes of Cactus is Jewish. I don’t think anyone else on here could care less but it might give you something to think about

    By Cactus Fan Club (Tel Aviv Branch) on Sep 13, 2019

  28. Who or what is Cactus? I ain’t never liked em since Mrs Disher found me looking at the Mexican woman next door when she was sunbathing. Mrs. D grabbed a cactus outta our garden and rammed it up my ass. I was shittin pricks for weeks

    By Cactus Fan Club (Tel Aviv Branch) on Sep 13, 2019

  29. I just can’t believe they is that many jew bastards out there . Think you is just trying to stir up shit . That said to me jews ain’t as bad as coons

    By Derrick on Sep 13, 2019

  30. I know anti thinks theys worse , but at least they ain’t marrying white bitches and making high yeller kids

    By Derrick on Sep 13, 2019

  31. MOSE ALLISON says: Asswholic Racist Haters - Is This the Best you got? (”Well I’m a gonna be here for the rest of my life”) Try listening to More,…Much more, 2nd rate Cactus LPs for authentic, enlightening, certainly inspirational guidance. (”And all I did was shoot my wife”) Please recall, Please!, Above ALL: “Your Whole is = to The Sum of Yer Parts!”

  32. American Delta blues musician Bukka White seconds That emotion…

    By harmon on Sep 13, 2019

  33. Thanks bigO! i’ll add this to several other Basement Tapes releases.

    By barth on Sep 13, 2019

  34. surprised you have this here as it is all available on legit releases

    By sluggo on Sep 13, 2019

  35. Mose Allison wrote Parchman Farm Harmon the hardon

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Sep 13, 2019

  36. Derrick, don’t forget Bad Company and Free with Paul Rodgers. If u have to ask Cactus Fan club then you will never know

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Sep 13, 2019

  37. Derrick the other thing I wanted to mention was that I preferred The Jimi Hendrix Band Of Gypsys over the Jimi Hendrix Experience. I just wish they played longer than they did. Buddy Miles blows away Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox destroys Noel Redding

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Sep 13, 2019

  38. Just for the record Mark, Im not fucking HHH

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Sep 13, 2019

  39. We all know what happened to the original HHH. Defeated dead losers. Just like the sad guys on here who shout their pathetic views into the void whilst holding onto their tiny smelly dicks defeated losers.

    By A P Thomas on Sep 15, 2019

  40. HHH dead defeated losers

    By A P Thomas on Sep 15, 2019

  41. Anti may not be fucking HHH but he & Derrick are gay lovers.

    By eye eye on Sep 15, 2019

  42. Bit slow to notice, but ‘I’m Not There’ is probably the best unreleased track on the original Basement Tapes.

    By trevor richrdson on Sep 17, 2019

  43. Thank you for His Bobness!

    By Frank on Sep 19, 2019

  44. Please put up the newly circulating soundboard recording of Mr. Dylan’s July 23, 2000 show.

    Has a great setlist and is a top notch time area of his performing career.

    Thanks much!

    By HenryLee on Sep 24, 2019

  45. Big O, the date for this recording is wrong. Dylan and the hawks were in California in early December 1965, and on the 4th they played at Berkley Community Center. Source is Barney Hoskins excellent book about the band called “Across the great divide” and confirmed in Chapter 15 of Robbie Robertson’s book “Testimony”.
    The Basement Tapes were recorded in 1967.
