Houston 1982 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Rockefeller’s, Houston, TX; March 2, 1982. Partial early show. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to goody for sharing the show at Dime.

+ + + + +

We come in a bit late to John’s early show, but never too late it appears - he’s pretty well into the meat of it and all the songs that exist here are complete. John invites Steve up for the last five tunes. I don’t have any of John’s late show… As you’d imagine, this gets pretty lively!

Celebrating those who have left us, it’s always an honor and a pleasure to bring this stuff your way. [Ed: John Prine passed away on April 7, 2020 due to complications related to Covid-19. He was 73.]

  6. DD , derrick, Here we go again, another black ape shot and killed by police in Philadelphia. Ape was acting like a jungle savage in the streets , just like Floyd , Brooks , Jacob Blake and most of the ape savages shot and killed by hero cops . Here comes Bobblehead Sharpton and the BLM contingent with their usual race baiting, along with looting, burning etc .

    By HHH on Oct 31, 2020

  7. You can take the ape out of the jungle, but you can take the jungle out of the ape.

  8. Now we’re talking! Two much missed American treasures. When we lost the auther of one of the seminal songs about America (’City of New Orleans’ by Goodman) I was deeply saddened but amongst the Covid-19 victims to lose John too was almost too much to bear. Still can’t play too much Prine its too upsetting.
    Tell your POTUS to put THAT in his pipe and smoke it!
    Immune my ass! Dumb as soup . . . . . . . . .
    sorry rant over
    Thanks Big O!

    By swappers on Oct 31, 2020

  9. before the assholes take over this posting I`d like to just say thanks Bigo for recognizing these two great artists.

  10. Hey triple h, stop making racist comments, it dont help matters and makes you look small minded. And dont reply sayin that aint you Derrick - it is.

  11. swappers. shut the fuck up. what i forgot, you will never know turball

    By Derrick on Oct 31, 2020

  12. Millard (RIP) had better taste than to tape whiny crap like this. Do-gooding left wing hot air.

    I hear Prine was Mark’s favorite artist. That right, Marky boy?

    By Classic Rock on Oct 31, 2020

  13. Thank you.

  14. Johns Dic went past his knees . He was literally hung like a horse . It felt great inside me . I loved sucking it too , although deep throat presented a real challenge. It would choke me sometimes , especially when he would explode hot cum down my throat .

  15. RIP, Sean Connery. “My name is Bond. James Bond.”

  17. John Prine was great when he was younger in the seventies and eighties. This show is 82 so he was still pretty young and vital . He aged badly over the last 20 / 25 years or so . He was a shriveled up old geezer when he died , craggy looking and balding.

    By Pat Grooms on Nov 1, 2020

  18. Dear Mock D’reck! What’s a “turball” dumbfuck?
    Step away from the wax crayons fuckwit it’s time to take your meds.
    What you forgot is everything so I am doing pretty well thanks. Two degrees and post graduate qualifications including a Masters so show some respect you redneck fuckball. You appear to have the knowledge of a small pebble
    Dumb as soup!
    Can scarcely string a sentence together mouth breathing, bottom feeding, knuckle dragging moron. You don’t even begin to touch me for knowledge intelligence or sheer chutzpah! Have some courage, step out from pretending you’re D’reck and tell us who you really are!

    If not remember we all want you to go piss up a rope you useless fuckstick

    By swappers on Nov 1, 2020

  19. Not me . I ain’t commented here . Dic suckin Jew bastard name hijackers again . Probably Mark / Russ / Billy or whatever he’s calling himself these days . Prine was great . Great fuckin storyteller. Miss him . It sucks how he died . Bastard China makin this virus in labs and spreading it over the world

    By Derrick on Nov 1, 2020

  20. Hey DD , triple h , election is almost here . Who you guys think is gonna win ? Two old farts running against each other. Can’t get exited bout either of em . Biden got that hi Yeller bitch on the ticket , that’s enough fir me to hope Trump wins right there . Biden could croak in office and then we get Queen hi Yeller bitch and socialism

    By Derrick on Nov 1, 2020

  21. Derrick it’s the orange faced would be dictator vs the corpse. If Trump had handled Covid better this would be a landslide. As it is it’s highly possible that Joe Blow wins and then it’s just a matter of time before it’s Kamala time.

    By HHH on Nov 1, 2020

  22. Imagine that screaming banshee mixed race loon running the country? It’s scary to think about . Raised taxes , open borders, , More third world and black ape savages emboldened and sticking it to Whitey . I’m sure Towelhead Omar the Muslim and AOC would be in line for cabinet positions. Can you imagine Vladimir Putin licking his chops at the prospect of feasting on Kamala and her squad cronies . This country is doomed buddy . That said I’m not voting, but I guess orange face is the lesser of two evils .

    By HHH on Nov 1, 2020

  23. Plus it would be a gas to see the faces of those smug CNN talking heads if Trump wins . Don Lemonhead that smug little black faggot, Cris Homo , Anderson Pooper , John Berman, Rachael Madcow . The look on their ugly mugs and reactions would be priceless if Trump wins , especially after all the Trump bashing that Jeff Zucker has told them to do for months .

    By HHH on Nov 1, 2020

  24. Hey triple H, Derrick, never asked you this…
    What did you think of Obama when he was prez?

    By Derrick on Nov 2, 2020

  28. Dudes Diks and Dumpers is the TV show I want to host. I would continue my journey around the US, sucking off as many dudes as possible and licking their dump chutes.

    By Derrick on Nov 2, 2020
