“August 3: Cozy departure”

Over, 7 shows from 3 tours. “HEADLESS IN RUSSIA” only multi-camera shots, but all others are sound board albums. In our shop, we have introduced everything in press and title. The Chicago performance of this work is the latter term among them. It is exactly “Cozy SABBATH last sound board”.
It is more than such historical value, super superb quality that is too terrible. Even if you say soundboard to a single mouth, the variety is different, but this work is what the so-called officials run off. Unlike broadcasts and officials, it is recorded directly from the sound board table, and if the mix is ​​also a vivid scene balance, the cheers are recorded far and small. Therefore, although I can not hope for a work feeling like the official live album, I will transcend the official as a record of live performance. It is filled with the vividness of one reprint that does not allow any replacement, and a direct sound of a do-like class that pierces the plug directly into his head is poured. There is not realistic feeling at the concert venue because you can hardly hear cheers, but the sense of sync by the band does not allow you to follow. These characteristics are common to the desk system, but this sound board is a superb finished product among them.

Although such super-superb soundboard first was able to be tasted even by “BLOODY WIZARD” already, this work is the ultimate board which further refined it. First of all, the biggest point is the full show! Actually, the biggest drawback of “BLOODY WIZARD” was the missing of three recordings. The first one is the beginning. From the opening scene “Ave Satani” to the first song “Children of the Grave” riff up to 20 seconds. The second part is in the middle stage, the climax part of “When Death Calls” is about 1 minute. And at the end there was not an entire “Paranoid” from the end of “Iron Man” ‘s ending 10 seconds. This soundboard will be what the on-site staff recorded with freakiness, and the cut part does not have the recording itself in the first place.
This work supplements such lost part with audience recording. Originally, supplementation at the same show is desirable, but unfortunately the show of this show is similar to the sound board of the main volume but not quite similar. Therefore, this work adopted the superb audience recording of “New York performances on July 10, 1995” three days later. This complementary master is an ultra-superb audience that is said to be one of the best in all history of Sabbath, a so-called “sound board” type. The full length version is also loved as masterpiece “DIE AND FLY (Power Gate – 262)”, but this work got its new upgrade master. Furthermore, it connects seamlessly as close as possible to the main part sound board. Even in Sabbath’s whole history, it is a name recording of a do-it-yourself, so realizing a finish without a sense of incongruity. If you listen to this work you can not believe that it is a different performance for the first time in a very short period of time (it is also evidence that you have done a stable show each night so much).
And the important soundboard is also brush up. Of course, useless meaningless sound pressure production is not done. The Omoto master was also excellent, but the balance is for the field PA only, civilian audio is not taken into consideration. As a result, the peaks of each range popped out as if they pierced, and with headphones etc. it was not easy to listen a little (although it is strangely a high-level dimension). This work organizes such a large original sound for each range. Keeping the desk directly connected with life and genuine sounds, realizing a well-balanced, easy to listen even more civilian audio.

Listening is a heap of heights such as ‘The Wizard’ and ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’ which can not be listened to the famous songs of style Sabbath, “HEADLESS CROSS TOUR” and “TYR TOUR”, precious “FORBIDDEN” number of existence and so on. However, the quality is even more amazing. It’s too amazing. Beyond the band of 1 band anymore, it is one sample with a vertically sound like a sample of a desk cabin direct soundboard. With that sense of close contact with you, you can sync with Tony Iomi, Tony Martin, Cozy Powell, Neil Murray. There is not this bad husband. It can not be great! Aside from the studio album “FORBIDDEN”, ​​Koji SABBATH’s super name board sound board as ever staged in the stage. Please, enjoy with the press 2CD altogether.

そんな本作に記録されているのは「1995年7月7日ティンリーパーク公演」。そう、Langleyレーベルの大名盤『BLOODY WIZARD』がブラッシュ・アップした究極サウンドボード録音なのです。今週は、同じくコージー時代の超名盤サウンドボード『DEFINITIVE VIENNA 1989(Zodiac 324)』も登場します。良い機会ですので、ここでコージー時代のサウンドボード/プロショットのコレクションを整理してみましょう。

・9月6日:マンチェスター『MANCHESTER 1989: PRE-FM MASTER』
・9月24日:ウィーン『DEFINITIVE VIENNA 1989』
・10月19日:大阪『STILL HEADLESS』
・11月25日:ロシア『HEADLESS IN RUSSIA(2公演)』

“TYR TOUR 1990”

“FORBIDDEN TOUR 1995(8月まで)”
・6月16日:カールスハムン『STILL HEADLESS』
・7月7日:ティンリーパーク ★本作★

以上、3ツアーからの7公演分。『HEADLESS IN RUSSIA』のみマルチカメラ・プロショットですが、他はすべてサウンドボード・アルバム。当店では、そのすべてをプレス・タイトルでご紹介してきたわけです。本作のシカゴ公演は、その中でも最も後期にあたる。まさに“コージーSABBATH最後のサウンドボード”なのです。

そんな超極上サウンドボードぶりは既発『BLOODY WIZARD』でも味わえたわけですが、本作はさらにそれを磨き上げた究極盤。まず、最大のポイントはフルショウ収録! 実は『BLOODY WIZARD』最大の欠点は3カ所の録音漏れでした。1カ所目は冒頭。開演シーンの「Ave Satani」から1曲目「Children of the Grave」の冒頭リフ20秒まで。2カ所目は中盤で、「When Death Calls」のクライマックス・パートが約1分ほど。そして、最後は終盤で「Iron Man」のエンディング10秒から「Paranoid」が丸ごとなかったのです。このサウンドボードは現場スタッフが気紛れで録音したものでしょうし、カット・パートはそもそも録音自体が存在しないのです。
本作は、そうした失われたパートをオーディエンス録音で補完。本来であれば、同じショウでの補完が望ましいのですが、残念ながらこのショウの客録は本編サウンドボードとは似ても似つかないクオリティ。そこで、本作は3日後の「1995年7月10日ニューヨーク公演」の極上オーディエンス録音を採用しました。この補完マスターはサバス全史でも屈指と言われる超極上オーディエンスでして、いわゆる「まるでサウンドボード」タイプ。全長版は名作『DIE AND FLY(Power Gate-262)』としても愛されていますが、本作はそのアップグレード・マスターを新たに入手。さらに本編サウンドボードに可能な限り近づけた上でシームレスに接続。サバス全史でもド級の名録音だからこそ違和感がない仕上がりを実現しました。本作をお聴きになった方はあまりのシンクロぶりに別公演とは信じられないのではないでしょうか(それほどまでに毎晩、安定したショウを行っていた証拠でもあります)。

様式サバスの名曲群や“HEADLESS CROSS TOUR”や“TYR TOUR”では聴けない「The Wizard」や「Sabbath Bloody Sabbath」、存在自体が貴重な『FORBIDDEN』ナンバー等々、聴きどころは山盛りです。しかし、それ以上にクオリティが凄い。凄すぎる。もはや1バンドの枠を超え、卓直結サウンドボードの見本にして頂点的なサウンドが全開の1本。そのド級の密着感でトニー・アイオミ、トニー・マーティン、コージー・パウエル、ニール・マーレイの4人とシンクロできる。これが悪かろうハズがない。凄くないはずがない! スタジオ・アルバム『FORBIDDEN』はさておき、ステージでは相変わらず凄まじかったコージーSABBATHの超名盤サウンドボード。どうぞ、プレス2CDで存分にご堪能ください。
