The best stereo sound board album of treasure spill is out. It is contained in this work “July 26, 1998 Pittsburgh Performance”. It is a live album just before the production of “BY YOUR SIDE”, which is a return to the origin point.
As you know, THE BLACK CROWES downloads and sells live sound sources on the official site, but its lineup is “2001” after “1996” and “1997”, and this work ‘ 1998 “is not dealt with. It is one that connects the missing link “Before union with Jimmy Page.”
Even though it says a spill sound board, the quality is awesome, but this work is unexpectedly a “pin” person. I originally acquired an original master that is not on the net, but the sound that flowed out from it is extremely superb. Of course, because it is not a release recording, the mix is ​​rough, but it is not a fault but a beauty point. The playfully thoughtful performance is screwed into the brain’s miso with the balance of the site itself. Normally, desk direct sound board lacks “realistic sensation”, but this work is not so …. No, it feels even to “presence” exceeding even “realistic sensation”. As if my head became a microphone, Chris Robinson’s breathing is felt, Rich Robinson’s guitar rings as if there is a band in my brain. It is as if you are standing in the same room as THE BLACK CROWES, surrounded and surrounded by a buried feeling.
Besides, I am not alone in that room. Despite direct desk sound board, audible enthusiasm is audible firmly. It is not mixed like an ordinary live album, but it is like a cheer to the microphone on the band side, but it is too hot and it is a natural choice for being close. Well, around themselves, THE BLACK CROWES surrounds the surroundings, and the fans immediately surround the outer edge. I do not know exactly what the actual site was, but the sound world that can be heard from this work is that kind of thing.
The show drawn with such a sound is also fierce hot. It was a tour accompanied by a box “SHO ‘NUFF” that grouped up the works until then, but the latest work at that time was zero from “THREE SNAKES AND ONE CHARM” and three songs from “AMORICA” stopped. On the other hand, five songs were plentifully played from the 2 great masterpiece “SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER” “THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION”, and masterpieces from the new work “BY YOUR SIDE” ahead of production, “Kickin ‘My Heart Around “as soon as possible. It is a live album where the posture of the band who goes to “return to the origin” is a straight runout.

Unfortunately there is nothing like the complete show because there is a cut in the first half of “Wiser Time” ending and “Jealous Again”, but the rest is the one that caught the whole story of all the songs of the day. Jimmy Page is also knocked out and selected as a partner THE BLACK CROWES. It is a masterpiece of a fierce stereo sound board album that draws its essence with direct brain sound. We will deliver it to you at hand over this weekend.
お宝流出の極上ステレオサウンドボード・アルバムが登場です。本作に収められているのは「1998年7月26日ピッツバーグ公演」。原点回帰となった快作『BY YOUR SIDE』の制作直前にあたるライヴアルバムです。
ご存じの通り、THE BLACK CROWESはオフィシャル・サイトでライヴ音源をダウンロード販売しておりますが、そのラインナップは「1996年」「1997年」の次が「2001年」になっており、本作の“1998年”は扱っていない。“ジミー・ペイジとの合体前”というミッシングリンクを繋ぐ1本なのです。
流出サウンドボードと言ってもクオリティはピンキリなのですが、本作は思いっきり“ピン”の方。ネットにもないオリジナル・マスターを独自入手したのですが、そこから流れ出たサウンドは極端なまでに極上。もちろん、リリース用録音ではないのでミックスは荒々しいのですが、それは欠点ではなく美点。思いっきり生々しい演奏が、現場そのもののバランスで脳ミソにねじ込まれる。通常、卓直結サウンドボードは“臨場感”に欠けるものですが、本作はそうではない……いえ、むしろ“臨場感”さえも超えた“存在感”まで感じるのです。まるで頭がマイクロフォンになったようにクリス・ロビンソンの息づかいが感じられ、脳ミソの中にバンドがいるかのようにリッチ・ロビンソンのギターが鳴る。まるでTHE BLACK CROWESと同じ部屋に立ち、周囲を囲まれて演奏されているような埋没感なのです。
しかも、その部屋にいるのは自分だけではない。卓直結サウンドボードにも関わらず、オーディエンスの熱い熱狂がしっかりと聞こえる。普通のライヴアルバムのようにミックスされているわけではなく、バンド側のマイクに届いた声援のようなのですが、それがあまりに熱く、近いためにえらく自然なのです。そうですね、自分を中心にTHE BLACK CROWESが周りを囲み、そのすぐ外縁をさらにファンが囲んでいる。実際の現場がどういう配置だったかは分かりませんが、本作から聞こえる音世界は、そういうものなのです。
そんなサウンドで描かれるショウがまた、猛烈に熱い。それまでの作品をひとまとめにしたボックス『SHO’ NUFF』に伴うツアーだったわけですが、当時の最新作は『THREE SNAKES AND ONE CHARM』からはゼロですし、『AMORICA』からも3曲止まり。その一方で、2大名作『SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER』『THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION』からは5曲ずつがたっぷりと演奏され、さらに制作を控えた新作『BY YOUR SIDE』からの名曲「Kickin’ My Heart Around」を早くも演奏している。まさに“原点回帰”に向かわんとするバンドの姿勢がストレートに滲むライヴアルバムなのです。

残念ながら「Wiser Time」エンディングと「Jealous Again」前半にカットがあるためにショウの完全体でこそありませんが、それ以外は当日ショウの全曲の一部始終を捉えきった1枚です。ジミー・ペイジもノックアウトされ、パートナーに選んだTHE BLACK CROWES。その本質を脳ミソ直撃サウンドで描く激烈ステレオサウンドボード・アルバムの大傑作。今週末、あなたのお手元にお届けいたします。

TV Show Live Performance 1990-1999 PRO-SHOT

Click Image To Enlarge

The main press CD is an ultra-super stereo sound board album that contained them in the finest sound, “1998” which was ignored by the official. To that bonus you will receive a collection of pro shots that will tell the sight of the ’90s’ they were shining most.
This work includes a TV appearance from the debut era (1990), which had swept across the country, to the cozy work “BY YOUR SIDE” (1999). We recorded 19 programs (+ talk) of 9 programs in total for about 100 minutes. Let ‘s take a closer look at each era.

【SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER Era: 3 programs (5 songs)】
First of all, there are three TV programs of the era (1990 · 1991) when they were sweeping across the country in their debut work. The breakdown is “MTV unplugged (2 songs)”, “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (2 songs)” “LETTERMAN (1 song)”, SNL is electric. Both are studio performances at broadcasting stations, but they are live performances. By the way, this time is the first appearance on “Saturday Night Live”, Michael J. Fox (!) Introduces the band.
Their youthful appearance is the most important sight, but the quality that reflects them is amazing as well. It should be an air check of the time, but it is beautiful in modern eyes accustomed to digital image quality. While there are distortions in the program switching scene, there is no noise like noise in the performance scene, you can fully enjoy the perfect multi-camera / pro shot.

【THE SOUTHERN HARMONY & MUSICAL COMPANION era: 4 programs (8 songs)】
2nd album era (1992 · 1993 years) which recorded the first place in the US and was enjoying the great heyday full-bodied. This work also includes 9 songs of the maximum volume. Breakdown is “LENO (1 song + talk)” “MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS (1 song)” “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (2 songs)” “MTV SPRING BREAK (4 songs)”. This is also using the best master, plenty of amazing image beauty.
All eight songs of 4 shows are must-see (there is plenty of feeling of talk that I was saying buoy buy), but MTV’s 2 programs (total of 5 songs) are among the most noteworthy. Including the debut era, this was a studio live at all broadcast stations so far, but these five songs are stage live with audience also included. After all, the stage facing the audience and the studio singing towards the camera are completely different in dimension, and it is fierce hot. This work is also the biggest thing you can witness the original stage of the great heyday stage.

【AMORICA: 2 programs (2 songs)】
In the 3rd album era, it’s decreasing at a stretch and only “LETTERMEN (2 songs)”. He appeared twice in the same program (August under new work and November of promotion). In this era, even though the innovations such as the introduction of latin rhythm were good, it was also the era when the popularity became somewhat popular. It is a professional shot that strangely makes such a period transparent.

【BY YOUR SIDE era: 1 program (4 songs)】
The last thing that decorates this work is one reversed reversal! The 5th album “BY YOUR SIDE” pro shot. “THREE SNAKES AND ONE CHARM” era is zero, this neighborhood sense of balance also leads to the main press press “PITTSBURGH 1998”.
This is the stage · live which the audience was in front. What is wonderful is its passionate performance. The mood, such as the beginning of a moment, flows out to Munmun. Although it is not “real feeling” about the main press CD for audiences who smell somewhat, the fulfillment feeling of regaining the “music they should do” spreads over the screen as much as possible. While spreading out some exhilarating live, this work closes the curtain.

The music industry itself was straying “90s”. THE BLACK CROWES “The First 10 Years” was a collection of powerfully locked in that wild wave. Everywhere is Bruzie, hot anywhere. That’s why Jimmy Page chose. A masterpiece that can taste their miracles with exquisite professional shots. Please, enjoy it.

本作に収められているのは、全米を席巻していたデビュー時代(1990年)から、快作『BY YOUR SIDE』まで(1999年)のテレビ出演ライヴ。総勢9番組19曲(+トーク)を約100分間にわたって収録しています。それでは、各時代を細かく見ていきましょう。

まず登場するのは、デビュー作で全米を席巻していた時代(1990年・1991年)のテレビ番組3つ。内訳は「MTVアンプラグド(2曲)」「SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE(2曲)」「LETTERMAN(1曲)」で、SNLはエレクトリックです。いずれも放送局でのスタジオ・ライヴですが、生演奏です。ちなみに“SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE”にはこの時が初出演で、マイケル・J・フォックス(!)がバンドを紹介しています。

全米1位も記録し、大全盛期を全身で満喫していた2ndアルバム時代(1992年・1993年)。本作でも最大ボリュームの9曲を収録しています。内訳は「LENO(1曲+トーク)」「MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS(1曲)」「SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE(2曲)」「MTV SPRING BREAK(4曲)」。こちらも極上マスターを使用しており、驚異的な映像美がたっぷり。


【BY YOUR SIDE時代:1番組(4曲)】
本作のラストを飾るのは、一発大逆転!の5thアルバム『BY YOUR SIDE』のプロショット。『THREE SNAKES AND ONE CHARM』時代はゼロであり、この辺のバランス感覚も本編プレスCD『PITTSBURGH 1998』に通じます。

音楽業界自体が迷走していた“90年代”。その荒波の中で力強くロックしていたTHE BLACK CROWES“最初の10年”を集成した1枚です。どこまでもブルージーで、どこまでも熱い。だからこそ、ジミー・ペイジが選んだ。そんな彼らの奇跡を極上プロショットで味わえる大傑作。どうぞ、存分にお楽しみください。
