  2. Thank you BigO keep the good stuff coming

    By Sarah Novak on Jan 28, 2020

  3. You’ve out done yourself Big O. Thanks!

    By Paul on Jan 28, 2020

  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye2N_2ce3QE

    Derrick, listen to this. Original version covered by Zep called Gallis Poll (Gallows Pole) by Leadbelly. He’s playing a 12 string like a banjo

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Jan 28, 2020

  5. I love that Jimmy Page came back to New Orleans and paid a very substantial amount of money to Ledbellys’ estate and this tied Led Zeppelin to American Blues for eternity!

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Jan 28, 2020

  6. Rumor has it The Fab Four was a band of Lil Uns

  7. Pick up my bag, run to the station
    Railman said “you’ve got the wrong location”
    Pick up my bag, run right home
    Then I find I’ve got the number wrong

    By harmon on Jan 28, 2020

  8. The whole Purple chick series is worth a listen Thanks for these. Does anyone know of a link to The Beatles Sessions LP, supposedly a never released proposed 80s Beatles LP of unreleased material. There are several different versions around with slightly different songs. Grateful if anyone can help. :)

    By ND on Jan 28, 2020

  9. Sessions was cancelled indefinitely and the tracks did not appear on any official release until the Anthology project in the mid 1990s.

    By harmon on Jan 29, 2020

  10. The helicopter pilot in the Kobe Bryant crash that killed eight passengers including himself may have been a Muslim. A suicide excursion perhaps ? He has a mid eastern name . The visibility was so bad that police helicopters were grounded that morning.. Yet somehow the Muslim pilot decides to go . I would never get into an aircraft with a Muslim or Mid Eastern pilot .

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  11. HHH- The helicopter had permission from ground control to take off. You’re like those John Birchers who were seeing communists everywhere.

    By Mark on Jan 29, 2020

  12. This country is fucked up , 9/11 was less than twenty years ago , yet we have Muslim in political office like Towel Head Omar as well as police , and judges , pilots etc . We need to round up the Muslims and put them in camps like we did the japs after Pearl Harbor. Then send them back to the Middle East .

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  13. Ground control asked the Muslim pilot what he was going to do , no response, then the crash , very suspicious circumstances to say the least . It wouldn’t surprise me if ISIS was behind it , or the pilot could have been a lone wolf fanatic

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  14. “Racism is the greatest cancer of my lifetime.”

    Charles Barkley

    Lucky for us, the cancer of racism is dying with each generation. That’s why Derriere/HHH/Anti is crying here everyday. The world isn’t like it was in 1950 and it never will be again. So they rant, rave, and shed many a tear.

    By Mark on Jan 29, 2020

  15. The Muslim pilot probably thought a thousand virgins await him or some other mumbo jumbo . Muslims are all crazy fanatics

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  16. Mark the Hebrew is hoping for a Towel Head Omar presidential candidacy in 2024

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  17. Someone needs to tell him if Muslims take over this country the Jews are in for it . ISIS hates Jews and Christians

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  18. Never thought about that hhh . Makes sense though . Hate fuckin Muslims more than jew bastards. Coons is still the worst though. That fuckin crash was strange . From what I’ve read there was nutin wrong with the copter . Wouldn’t surprise me if the Muslim bastard crashed on fuckin purpose.

    By Derrick on Jan 29, 2020

  19. Derrick, If only we had someone like Harry Truman in office . We have no leaders today .

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  20. AMAZING Stuff !!! Thanks for the Flashback !

    By Elvis O'Neill on Jan 29, 2020

  21. Ara Zobayan was the muslim pilots name . Kobe’s former pilot a white man said that no way both engines could have failed

    By HHH on Jan 29, 2020

  22. I don’t know if that pilot was a Muslim or not , but he certainly wasn’t very smart, flying in those conditions. And what is wrong with the officials ? Allowing that helicopter to take off with 9 people on board . This was a horrible tragedy. Lives were lost and the families of the victims are now forever affected. I saw pictures of the foggy conditions. There is no way that helicopter should have been allowed to take off .

    By John on Jan 29, 2020

  23. Most of the crashes that occur are small airplanes and helicopters. Large passenger airplanes are very safe . We fly Delta and have never had problems. I certainly would never take my child on a small aircraft.

    By John on Jan 29, 2020

  24. @ harmon, thanks for the reply, copies of this are often on sale on Amazon or Ebay but a bit loathe to shell out money to bootleggers.

    By ND on Jan 29, 2020

  25. In 1996, there was a Beatles Convention at the L.A. Marriott Hotel that my late wife and I attended. George Harrison’s sister appeared there and spoke about him. Juber, who played in Wings performed. There were a lot of stuff available. I met and talked to 2 members of the Quarrymen, one of which was an original member that played with John and Paul in the band. He was the one that still had the only 45 single of Despite of all the Danger and the flip side of That’ll be the day. When Paul sent over someone to pick it up prior to the making of the video anthology, he took photos of both sides and we bouth that poster, and he signed the poster of it for us. Still have it.

    By ScarRad on Jan 30, 2020

  26. The 45 was a “one-off” that was recorded on a very expensive machine that a man had in his basement. The Quarrymen including John and Paul got into the basement studio with their instruments and played in one take both songs. John had the lead on In Spite of All The Danger. The man burned the 45 and handed it to them. They played it for a while for their friends, and then the guy I met stuck it in a drawer for over 35 years.

    By ScarRad on Jan 30, 2020

  27. I was going by memory of 24 years ago. It must have been a set up in a basement studio at the church. That would explain the access to the equipment. In the 50’s through 70’s, churches were one of the few places that had recording equipment outside of the record companies that made commercial product in quantity, like Decca, etc.

    By ScarRad on Jan 30, 2020

  28. At the end of “Some other guy 1 ” someone’s screaming “WE WANT PETE!”

    By Quicicasco on Jan 30, 2020

  29. Hey Anti , thanks for the Leadbelly link . Fuck man , that was awesome. And he was playin 12 string ? Man you can see the zeppelin version of gallows pole is fuckin close as shit to that . Glad Page made it right to the family. He gets blasted by lots of folks for ripping off old coon music

    By Derrick on Jan 30, 2020

  30. By the way is there a way to download that alternative master of reality? . Been on a sabbath kick lately

    By Derrick on Jan 30, 2020

  31. Derrick. Just found out that Zeppelin added 6 new songs to the Song Remains the Same. Inm talking bout the live album at MSG. Makes that concert even better than it was. Rememeber when LIve at Leeds first came out on LP. I think there were 5 or 6 songs. Then over the years, you now have added songs plus the entire Tommy

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Jan 31, 2020

  32. Black Sabbath - Fairies Wear Boots (Demo Version)

    Derrick, check this out. Mark the fairy wears boots. better than the album

  34. So now The genitalia talk is rubbing off on Hebrew mark . I always knew he was Hebrew , now we know he’s homo as well .

    By HHH on Jan 31, 2020

  35. C Tony ‘ you do seem obsessed with large scholongs though as you like to call them . U L E , same thing . Both apparently also homo .

    By HHH on Jan 31, 2020

  36. track 112 “I Don’t Know”, surely has a “Buddy Holly - That’ll Be The Day” intro vibe to it, but the words and music afterwards don’t track it, nor do they sound like anything else Buddy Holly played, not even the early stuff he did.

    By ScarRad on Jan 31, 2020

  37. I saw “The Buddy Holly Story” at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood when it opened. Gary Busey, believe it or not, actually starred in it, and he did all the actual singing. It was a fantastic performance, still the best work that he has ever done. You can’t compare it to the Freddie Mercury biopic, which was great too, but that was much more physical, benefitted from having the actual Queen performing, and the vast advancement in sound and cinematography.

    By ScarRad on Jan 31, 2020

  38. Re: Kobe. Hardly any chopper pilots or their companies are certified to fly in that kind of weather in the L.A. area. i.e. by Instrument. Not even police chopper pilots. That’s why they’re grounded. Visual Flight Rules apply, which is clouds have to be 1,000 feet above the ground, with 3 miles visibility, Pilot violated both of those once he went into the area.

    By ScarRad on Jan 31, 2020

  39. Scar Rad . To me it’s obvious that the pilot was under pressure possibly from Kobe to make that flight on time for the basketball tournament. His job may have been at stake . Don’t buy into the Muslim suicide theory.

    By John on Feb 18, 2020

  40. I don’t understand why any pilot , chopper or airplane would not be instrument certified in this day and age . After this things must change and certification must be made a requirement.

    By John on Feb 18, 2020

  41. Boys I think the time for Helter Skelter is now. The only difference is that scum like swappers, just wow Mark all hs Hebrew aliases and the rest of the left wing contingent belong with the apes. They are not worthy of racial purity. They are the one who promulgate race mixing, interracial marriage and giving the ape equal rights like we have. The nigger should never be allowed to be equal to the white man

    By David Duke on Feb 18, 2020

  42. The black apes know how to milk the system. I’ve seen multiple families with 10 or more kids here with 10 different fathers. The law of the jungle is what these animals live by

    By David Duke on Feb 18, 2020

  43. They know how to play the system and get on welfare. get food stamps, free medicaid, free cell phones and all the time spitting in the gvt face. They all have the mentality of a box of rocks and shuck and jive their way through life. I’ve seen too many times where they play this game called knockout. Every time its ape sucker punching an older defenseless white man.

    By David Duke on Feb 18, 2020

  44. Dont forget the college admissions scandal that was a Hebrew led conspiracy

    By David Duke on Feb 18, 2020

  45. The mentally defective left wing mark, harmon the hardon, just bow wow and swappers fit the mold of the gvt giving everything to Sambo. These pieces of filth are just as bad as the coon that spawned them. Thats why racial purity is no longer going to happen. Too many commy pinko bleeding heart liberals

    By David Duke on Feb 18, 2020

  46. Right on accurate DD

    By Derrick on Feb 18, 2020

  47. DT and DD are run by Russia now ain’t ya? DD lived there for over five years. Why was that Mr Duke? Commie pinko bleedin’ heart fascist . . . . . .

    By swappers on Feb 18, 2020

  48. Thats right lowlife piece of jew filth. I went to Russia to promote my book “The Ultimate Supremacism: My Awakening on the Jewish Question.” Putin also shares my views and believes “the organized Jewish community” is heavily involved in “supporting movements that want to destroy nationalism.” Putin like myself is fighting for the same values — “faith, family, and folk” — that guide his own party. Before you make an idiotic comment, check the facts condescending moron

    By David Duke on Feb 18, 2020

  49. Ha ha ha haha five years to promo a book . . .. .cretinous mouth breathing retard

    :)

    By swappers on Feb 18, 2020

  50. Swappers , are you Jewish ?

    By Der Fuhrer on Feb 19, 2020

  51. Like Mark , Russ , Harmon and just wow you sound like a dirty , filthy, vermin Jew .

    By Der Fuhrer on Feb 19, 2020

  52. Of course he is fuhrer. Cant you tell by his condescending tone and manner this guy is a total complete arsehole. His picture is probably next to that word. The jew will always try to siphon monies from wherever he can find it. They are very shrewd and elusive and stick to themselves especially the dirty Orthodox, the worst of the bunch. The jew is a master at manipulating the stock market, running ponzi schemes and real estate ripoff.

    By David Duke on Feb 19, 2020

  53. I like the nazi propaganda film that shows a beautiful aryan maiden being raped by an ugly big nosed jew. Goebbels also compared jew to vermin, filth and tons of rats. They were spot on with their depiction of the lowly jew

    By David Duke on Feb 19, 2020

  54. Isnt there a white supremacist website that talks about music. Just saying

    By Scar Rad on Feb 19, 2020

  55. We have far too many left wing arseholes that think racial purity is wrong. I go back to what I said earlier. The animal kingdom sticks with its own. I’ve never seen a horse and a cow breeding. The same ideology should be applied to the human race but the gene pool has been forever polluted

    By David Duke on Feb 19, 2020

  56. I agree with John. I heard the same thing that Kobe pressured the pilot to take off so he can get to the tournament

    By David Duke on Feb 19, 2020

  57. well that rattled a few cages . . . . night-night you circle jerking no mark freaks, not one of you a footnote in history, even the laughable cartoon joke Dook who robbed his own (how IS the gambling addiction going for you?) and has been kicked out of more organisations than most of the other trolls are members of! Guess Dook had all that facial surgery to hide the Fetal Alcohol Syndrome from his dear alcohol soaked mummy! And no you cretins I am not Jewish. I am the white suprematist goal your long dead Fuhrer dreamed of, a true Caucasian. Not like you redneck knuckle dragging Rusky loving inbred no marks.
    Sleep tight, cuddle up and share your gene pool nicely won’t you!?
