Bologna 1979 [no label, 1CD]

Stadio “Woodstock 10 anni dopo. Bologna, Italy; September 18, 1979 (could be September 4 or 18). Very good soundboard.


Thanks to longjam for sharing the show at Dime.

longjam noted:

Bologna is my town, but I never knew about the existence of a recording of the “Woodstock after 10 year” held on September 18, 1979. A good friend of mine from Sheffield, sent me this tape (!!).

Enjoy this clean soundboard recording… there is some editing on the source tapes, like having this performance fitting a C60 tape (some chat was edited out). This is a clone copy of the tape I got.

  7. All of you people need to realize, there is big , and there is Uncle Milte . It’s like little league vs major league.

    By Scaromouch on Oct 29, 2021

  8. Uncle Milte was so big , that they had two funerals . One for him and one for his Coc k .

    By Scaromouch on Oct 29, 2021

  9. Many mens room sightings proved how big uncle Milte was . Also he was undefeated in whip it out contests . He soundly defeated Tom Jones once in Vegas . Tom admitted it on the Howard Stern show . Frank Sinatra banned him as a special guest at the rat packs legendary sauna gang bangs . Frank had to be the biggest in the room .

    By Scaromouch on Oct 29, 2021

  10. Once in a sauna , a young punk kept pestering Uncle Milte to a contest. He kept saying get lost kid , I don’t need your money . A friend said , cmon Milte , just take out enough to win .

  11. I saw Havens perform at a small club a few years back. Afterwards, I waited in the autograph line for about an hour. I didn’t ask him to sign anything, I just thanked him for his music.

    By Mark on Oct 29, 2021

  12. Thanks Big O for this post. Great to hear some Richie Havens.

    By Alan on Oct 29, 2021

    By U L E on Oct 31, 2021

  32. I’m sure I’m right about posters on here.

    No straight would stand in line for an hour to thank a guy for something. That’s queer behavior. I reckon the thanks were accompanied by the offer of a BJ.

    By Heartlands Patriot on Nov 3, 2021

  33. Heart Pat- when your mom pulls a train straights stand in line for an hour to violate all her holes and urinate and defecate on her- usually at the same time. I know, I had a number two on her belly. :-)

    By Corey M on Nov 3, 2021

  41. Stupid swappers doesn’t know that Derrick has no penis. Idiot.

    By HHH on Nov 3, 2021

  42. Swappers is a fuckin piece of turd. Dogshit like him needs to dry up and blow in the wind. He’s a menace to society but his wife does suck a mean coc k.

    By Nelson on Nov 3, 2021

  43. This ho definitely loves big uns just like me

    By swappers on Nov 3, 2021

  44. What a remarkable board this is. As I understand there is no registration or membership and anyone can post as anyone else. Already there are two posts in my name which were not written by me.

    I think I’ll stick around for a while. Most posters do seem gay or bi. That’s not natural.

    By Heartlands Patriot on Nov 3, 2021

  45. Heart Pat, if you whip it out, I’ll show yu how gay I am. I have no hangups and no shame about anything. Im open to golden showers and brown bathing.
