THE BLACK CROWES, which is a popular press CD series of the finest live in Japan. That latest bullet appears.
This work includes “Osaka Health Pension Center” on July 31, 2001. They co-starred with Jimmy Page and brought the world to life, they came back to Japan by pulling power art “LIONS”. This work is a masterpiece of 100% original 100% sound representing 2001. First of all, let’s confirm the position of this Osaka performance in a schedule.

· July 25: Shibuya Public Hall
· July 27: Shibuya public hall
· July 29: Nagoya Kogyo Kaikan
· July 30th: Zepp Fukuoka
· July 31: Osaka Health Pension Center 【this work】

Over all, five performances. This work’s Osaka performance will be the last day. They will be suspended in 2002, but it is the “last live in Japan” realized before that.
This work which contained such Osaka performance is the finest audience album. There are also people who seem to be “what an audience it is” just because we delivered a remarkable desk stereo sound board so far, but this work is different from Sonjyon Sogo’s guest book. What made this work a thing is a legendary name recordingist who waved a great deal in Osaka in the 90’s. In our shop, we have pressed this recording house collection in series, and its lineup is super powerful. Just to mention … … RAINBOW “OSAKA 1995 1ST NIGHT (BLACK BOX 006)”, AC / DC “OSAKA 2001 (ZODIAC 182)”, RICHIE SAMBORA “UNDISCOVERED SOUL IN OSAKA (ZODIAC 199)” etc., masterpiece · hits There is a slurry. This recording man is characterized by the nearest sound which is called “just like a soundboard”, but the guitar sound is particularly amazing. The other day, SYKES ‘OSAKA 1998 (ZODIAC 233)’ which was released at the same time, ‘OSAKA 2002 (ZODIAC 234)’ of YNGWIE MALMSTEEN also received great praise. This work is the best album of such a masterpiece collection and it is a superb live album that is totally bathed in a bluesy and sticky guitar.
Actually, the sound of this work is abnormal. There is no doubt that it is an audience recording just by using the original master of the masterpiece, but if you listen without knowing anything, it sounds like only a sound board. Super clear & vivid sound which is not inferior at all compared with the stakeholders’ outgoing sound board which we have introduced so far. Moreover, how did you record? The cheers are spreading beyond the performance, and it is a direct feeling and balance that you want to ask “Do you made a microphone in the middle of the stage do?”
The 2001 show drawn with such quality is also tremendously “dense”. As a historical fact, it will be before the suspension of the activity, but it is not very, but I can not imagine such a band. All 19 songs are played, but the centerpiece of that is the latest work “LIONS” at that time. It is a large-scale behavior of 8 songs out of 13 albums. There is also an official live board “LIVE” during this period, but there are songs that I can not listen to there. That number and really nine songs. Half of the show is different from “LIVE”, including new songs “Come On”, “Losing My Mind” and “Young Man Old Man” of “LIONS”.
Moreover, such new song group is amazing than the album. “LIONS” has become a topic of rich (too?) Sound, but add “plenty” and “calorie” unique to the stage as it is, with its “darkness” as it is. If the album is a rich “Rockin ‘blues juice”, it is a plenty of lively feeling like shaking the Mino Juice with a water truck.

Not only as one live album, but also as a superb Japanese performance series collection, as the complement of the official live board “LIVE” is also the best two sets. A super masterpiece of an audience album that is not to be defeated by stakeholders’ outgoing sound board. Bruce & Rock became exciting at its 100% sound. Please, enjoy it as much as you want.

極上ライヴ・イン・ジャパンのプレスCDシリーズが大好評を博しているTHE BLACK CROWES。その最新弾が登場です。

・7月30日:Zepp Fukuoka
・7月31日:大阪厚生年金会館 【本作】

そんな大阪公演を収めた本作は、極上のオーディエンス・アルバム。これまで驚異的な卓直結ステレオ・サウンドボードをお届けしただけに「なんだオーディエンスか」と思われる方もいらっしゃるかも知れませんが、本作はそんじょそこらの客録とはワケが違う。本作をモノにしたのは、90年代の大阪で辣腕を振るった伝説の名録音家。当店では、この録音家コレクションをシリーズでプレス化しており、そのラインナップは超強力。ちょっと挙げますと……RAINBOW『OSAKA 1995 1ST NIGHT(BLACK BOX 006)』、AC/DC『OSAKA 2001(ZODIAC 182)』、RICHIE SAMBORA『UNDISCOVERED SOUL IN OSAKA(ZODIAC 199)』等々、大傑作・ヒット作がズラリ。この録音家は「まるでサウンドボード」としか言いようのないド直近サウンドが特徴なのですが、特にギターサウンドが凄い。先日、同時リリースされたSYKESの『OSAKA 1998(ZODIAC 233)』、YNGWIE MALMSTEENの『OSAKA 2002(ZODIAC 234)』も大絶賛を賜りました。本作は、そんな名匠コレクションの最新弾にして、ブルージーで粘っこいギターを思う存分に浴びられる極上ライヴアルバムなのです。
そんなクオリティで描かれる2001年のショウがまた、凄まじく“濃い”。史実としては活動停止前になるわけですが、とてもではありませんがそんなバンドとは思えない。全19曲が演奏されるわけですが、その中軸となるのは当時の最新作『LIONS』。アルバム13曲中8曲の大盤振る舞いなのです。この時期にはオフィシャルのライヴ盤『LIVE』もあるわけですが、そこでは聴けない曲もたんまり。その数たるや実に9曲。『LIONS』の新曲「Come On」「Losing My Mind」「Young Man Old Man」をはじめ、ショウの半分が『LIVE』とは違うレパートリーなのです。
