The first visit to THE BLACK CROWES realized in 1992 in the heyday. It is the emergence of the finest live album that conveys the truth. This work is different from live recording of Sonjyosho. It is a stereo sound board album of the official leakage that our shop has independently obtained.
Such a work is contained in “June 11, 1992: Nakano Sanguraza Performance”. Nakano Sanguraza for the first visit to Japan was also a continuous performance for three days. First of all, let’s imagine the position of this work from the schedule.

· June 9: Nakano Sanguraza
· June 10: Nakano Sanguraza
· June 11: Nakano Sanguraza 【this work】
· June 13: Shibuya Public Hall
· June 15th: Sendai Sun Plaza
· June 17th: Kanagawa Prefectural Hall
· June 19th: Nagoya City Auditorium
· June 20: Osaka Festival Hall

Over all, 8 performances. This work is the last day of Nakano Sanguraza 3DAYS. The biggest point of such work is a superb sound that only the master of the outflow master can do. Directly CD from the actual master cassette recorded directly from the mix table in the field, its freshness and direct feeling is abnormal. Its direct touch is “feeling in the brain” which is reproduced in the brain’s muscles beyond “nearness”. All the notes of all the instruments are super vivid, but the most amazing thing is Rich Robinson & Mark Ford’s guitar. From the nuance of a little picking to the swing width of choking, the plug is poured as though it had been thrust into the ear. Of course, the hot singing voice of Chris Robinson is also a sudden clearing sound of the breath level.
Originally it is a place I’d like to say “Official grade”, but if I call it so I will be rude to the sound source. You can draw the wildest THE BLACK CROWES vividly with the polished up official boards and radio broadcasts. To be honest, the field mix is ​​rough as it is, but it returns and gives a delicious taste of the band’s muddy flavor.
Such a sound quality blows out the heyday THE BLACK CROWES is bad, there is no husband. Unfortunately, there are also missing due to tape change in the second half of “Black Moon Creeping”, but half are selected from the golden 2 top “SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER” “THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION” and the most delicious place You can taste it all. Moreover, the spontaneous mood of flow which decides one song one piece on the spot makes the bluesy groove even more delicious. In addition, cover songs that participate daily there is also good. THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS ‘Hot Burrito # 2’ and THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND ‘s “Dreams” are played on this day, but its choice is also horribly like THE BLACK CROWES. What is surprising is that “Hot Burrito # 2” is premiered worldwide. The performance performed at the level engraved in the soul is premature, even though he is familiar with playing as if he was playing every night for decades. Muddy and stinky man … tough, but sexy. Honky tonk piano rolling nicely, a dusty guitar, and a scat like singing directly to the heart … all of them are poured in a direct brain sound. Even with “Dreams”, the 13-minute jam is wonderful and juicy, and the rich & mark talking guitar also forgets the passage of time.

Unusual quality of outgoing sound boards involved in rabbits and corners exploring the finest. And it is a contemporary Blues / Southern Rock painted with that sound. This genre is heavyweight Yokozuna live is heavily used, but this work is different from a choot. The breath of the young people who are naming the world right now. That innocent passion is a live album spread through the desk directly through the stereo sound board.
It has nothing to do with whether it is a fan of THE BLACK CROWES anymore. If you love a hot rock, if a beat is engraved in that blood, it is definitely a hot one. Originally, the secret treasure that the official should have left. We will contain it in the press 2CD that will last forever and we will deliver it to you at this weekend.
全盛期の1992年に実現したTHE BLACK CROWESの初来日。その真実を伝える極上ライヴアルバムの登場です。本作は、そんじょそこらのライヴ録音とはわけが違う。当店が独自入手した、関係者流出のステレオサウンドボード・アルバムなのです。

・6月11日:中野サンプラザ 【本作】

本来であれば「オフィシャル級」と言いたいところですが、そう呼んでしまったら音源に失礼にあたる。磨き上げられた公式盤やラジオ放送ではあり得ないほどにワイルドなTHE BLACK CROWESを生々しく描ききる。正直なところ、現場そのままなミックスは荒っぽくもあるのですが、それが返ってバンドの泥臭い薫りを美味しく演出してくれるのです。
そんなサウンド・クオリティで吹き出す全盛期THE BLACK CROWESが悪かろうハズがない。残念ながら「Black Moon Creeping」後半にテープ・チェンジによる欠落もありますが、セットリストは黄金の2トップ『SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER』『THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION』から半々が選ばれ、一番美味しいところをまるっと味わえる。しかも、1曲1曲その場で決めていく流れのスポンティニアスなムードがブルージーなグルーヴを一層美味しくしてくれる。さらに、そこに日替わりで加わるカバーソングがまた良い。この日はTHE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERSの「Hot Burrito #2」とTHE ALLMAN BROTHERS BANDの「Dreams」が演奏されるのですが、そのチョイスも実際のアレンジも恐ろしくTHE BLACK CROWESらしい。しかも、驚きなのが「Hot Burrito #2」は全世界初演だということ。魂に刻み込まれたレベルの演奏ぶりは、何十年も毎晩演奏していたかのように馴染みまくっているというのに、初演。泥臭くて男臭くてタフ……でも、セクシー。軽快に転がるホンキートンク・ピアノ、ほこり臭いギター、そして心に直接歌いかけるようなスキャット……それらすべてが脳ミソ直結サウンドで流し込まれるのです。「Dreams」にしても、13分に及ぶジャムが素晴らしくジューシーで、リッチ&マークの語り合うギターに時間の経つのも忘れてしまいます。

これはもう、THE BLACK CROWESのファンかどうかなど関係ない。熱いロックを愛する方なら、その血にビートが刻まれているのなら、間違いなく熱くなる1本。本来であれば、オフィシャルが残すべきだった秘宝。永久に残るプレス2CDに封じ込め、今週末あなたのお手元にお届け致します。

A masterpiece “TOKYO 1992” that can taste the first visit to Japan during its great heyday with stakeholders on stakeholders involved. If there is something missing from a perfectly important masterpiece, that is a “spectacle”. So I will present a compilation featuring young young hot performances with a superb multicamera · pro shot for that bonus.
It is contained in this work is a television program that was broadcasted from May 1992 to May 1993 in the year. It was produced by overseas Coremania, and while the name plate “THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION” recorded the No. 1 in the US, it was a special grade 1 which can enjoy about 85 minutes of their appearance which was just “the darling of the era” It is a sheet. There are 7 programs (15 interviews) recorded. Let’s see each one.

【May 27, 1992 “TONIGHT SHOW”】
First coming up is comedian: “TONIGHT SHOW” where Jay Reno is a personality. Two weeks after the release of “THE SOUTHERN HARMONY”, they can witness themselves in the bustle of winning the No.1 in the US. The main is a studio show of “Sting Me”, but also includes an interview of Chris Robinson before that. If you understand English, you should also see this interview. At that time, I talked about Clinton candidates during the presidential election in the US. It is quite interesting scene when Hillary · Clinton is defeated 25 years from this program now.

【September 9, 1992 “MTV MUSIC AWARDS”】
Next is “Remedy” performance at “MTV Music Award”. Although “TONIGHT SHOW” the previous time was a studio show, this is stage performance with putting the audience. How to say live, the studio performances and stages playing towards the camera are quite different. They are a dazzling song that shines in the original place where the stage shines.

[December 1, 1992 Rotterdam Concert] They are genuine live bands. One song at any stage is indigestion. The next video is the live shot of the main tour which is the greatest highlight. Still though it is a short recording of 6 songs, including the beautiful image quality and precise mix, you can enjoy the best live performances in this work.

【December 12, 1992 “SATUDAY NIGHT LIVE”】
Two studio live songs that were also included in the album “LIVE ON TV 1990-1999” released the other day. Because this work is adhering to “THE SOUTHERN HARMONY”, most of it is a song of 2nd album, here new song “AMORICA” new song “Nonfiction” is played as soon as possible. It is an acoustic performance where arrangement has already been completed.

【MTV: 1992 & March 18, 1993】
Two kinds of MTV broadcasting. First is the 1992 interview while the date and time is unknown. The second is four songs “March 18, 1993 Daytona Beach Show”. Although the latter is also a picture that was also included in “LIVE ON TV 1990-1999”, performance on the stage is unusually hot. It is the biggest highlight of this work as well as the 1992 Rotterdam performance as mentioned above, at the peak of the great heyday.

【Nürnberg Concert 30 May 1993】
The last appearance is the German famous festival “ROCK AM RING” appearance video. While interviewing Chris, you can witness their brave appearance that pulls out the representative song “Remedy” before the big audience. Most of the images so far could be called “Official grade”, but the milder and sweet picture quality of this. It is a scene that you want to enjoy just as a bonus.

Although there are programs that suffer the bonus DVDR “LIVE ON TV 1990-1999” of the press CD “PITTSBURGH 1998”, the taste that can be soaked plenty only in the “THE SOUTHERN HARMONY” era is hard to replace anything. THE BLACK CROWES of the great prime who was sweeping all over the world. Please, enjoy it as much as you want.

大全盛期の初来日公演を関係者流出ステレオサウンドボードで味わえる大傑作『TOKYO 1992』。完全無欠な名盤に足りないものがあるとすれば、それは“光景”。そこで、そのボーナスには若き彼らの熱いパフォーマンスを極上マルチカメラ・プロショットで特集したコンピレーションをお贈りします。
本作に収められているのは、1992年5月から1993年5月の1年間に放送されたテレビ番組。海外のコアマニアが制作したもので、名盤『THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION』が全米No.1を記録する中、まさに“時代の寵児”となっていた彼らの姿を約85分楽しめる特級の1枚です。収録されているのは7番組15曲(+インタビュー)。それでは、それぞれ見ていきましょう。

【1992年5月27日“TONIGHT SHOW”】
まず登場するのはコメディアン:ジェイ・レノがパーソナリティを務める“TONIGHT SHOW”。『THE SOUTHERN HARMONY』リリースから2週間後で、まさに全米No.1獲得の喧噪の中にいた彼らを目撃できます。メインは「Sting Me」のスタジオライヴですが、その前にクリス・ロビンソンのインタビューも収録。英語の分かる方なら、このインタビューも必見。当時、アメリカ大統領選の最中でクリントン候補について語るのです。この番組から25年後、ヒラリー・クリントンが敗れた今となってはなかなかに面白いシーンです。

【1992年9月9日“MTV MUSIC AWARDS”】
続くは“MTVミュージック・アウォード”での「Remedy」パフォーマンス。先ほどの“TONIGHT SHOW”はスタジオライヴでしたが、こちらは観客を入れてのステージ・パフォーマンス。いかに生演奏とは言え、カメラに向かって演奏するスタジオライヴとステージはまるで違う。本来の居場所であるステージで輝く彼らが眩しい1曲です。


【1992年12月12日“SATUDAY NIGHT LIVE”】
先日リリースされた映像集『LIVE ON TV 1990-1999』にも収録されていたスタジオライヴ2曲。本作は『THE SOUTHERN HARMONY』に拘っているのでほとんどが2ndアルバムの曲ですが、ここでは次作『AMORICA』の新曲「Nonfiction」が早くも演奏されています。すでにアレンジも完成されたアコースティック・パフォーマンスです。

MTV放送を2種。1つめは1992年のインタビューながら日時は不明。2つめは「1993年3月18日デイトナビーチ公演」の4曲です。後者はやはり『LIVE ON TV 1990-1999』にも収録された映像ですが、ステージでのパフォーマンスが異様に熱い。大全盛期の本領炸裂で、先述の1992年ロッテルダム公演と並んで本作最大の見どころです。

最後に登場するのは、ドイツの名物フェスティバル“ROCK AM RING”出演映像です。クリスのインタビューを交えつつ、大観衆を前に代表曲「Remedy」を繰り出す彼らの勇姿を目撃できます。ここまでの映像はほとんどが“オフィシャル級”と呼べるものでしたが、これのみやや甘い画質。あくまでボーナス的にお楽しみ頂きたいシーンです。

プレスCD『PITTSBURGH 1998』のボーナスDVDR『LIVE ON TV 1990-1999』と被る番組もあるものの、『THE SOUTHERN HARMONY』時代だけにたっぷりと浸りきれる旨みは何物にも代え難い。世界中を席巻していた大全盛のTHE BLACK CROWES。どうぞ、思う存分お楽しみください。
