オジー・オズボーンが復帰したリユニオンBLACK SABBATHの1999年アメリカツアーより決定的な映像素材が海外より緊急入荷! DVD2枚組の大容量を活かした驚異のハイクオリティ・アイテムが、まさかのギフト・タイトルでリリース決定です! ツアー前半のワシントン州シアトル”キー・アリーナ”公演において収録された複数の優良オーディエンス・ショットを編集・再構成した本作は、全てのSABBATHファンにとって必携必見の一本となるでしょう!

1997年のOZZFESTツアーでトニー・アイオミとオジーの合流が実現した事で、BLACK SABBATHは遂に完全なるオリジナル・ラインナップでの再結成へと動き出します。同年12月にイギリスのバーミンガムではアイオミ,オジー,ギーザー・バトラーそしてビル・ワードの4人が結集し、そのライヴの模様は公式作品「REUNION」として発表されました。’98年に行われたヨーロッパツアーでは、ビル・ワードが急な体調不良を起して参加できなかったものの、’98年末から’99年にかけてブッキングされた全米ツアーではオリジナルの4人が再集結。’98年12月31日のアリゾナ州フェニックスでの大晦日ライヴ(この模様はShadesレーベルの「TOWARDS THE END OF CENTURY」で楽しめます)より、真のBLACK SABBATHによるアメリカツアーがスタートしました。本作ではその7公演目に当たるシアトル公演を、複数のオーディエンス・ショットから巧みに編集されたスペシャルな映像で満喫できます。

映像は主としてステージに向かって左手側、ギーザー寄りの二階席からステージを俯瞰するように捉えており、舞台を右に左に動き回るオジー、上手で威厳たっぷりにヘヴィリフを紡ぐアイオミの姿を克明に追いかけています。ライヴ開演直後の「War Pigs」イントロ部分こそカメラが若干不安定ではありますが、オジーが歌いだす辺りから映像は落ち着き、安定感のある画面でライヴを楽しめるようになります。その画面はナチュラルな発色はにじみなど一切気にならないマスター・クオリティ。プレイヤーの輪郭も大変にシャープで、そのクリアさは間違いなくプロショット級です。複数の映像はナチュラルにクロスフェイドされ、画面が切り替わる際も違和感は全く感じません。音も画面へブレずにシンクロしているので、ファンは何のストレスも覚えず演奏へ入り込めるはずです(これは作り手がSABBATHライヴを心得ている事も大きいのでしょう)。
本作は映像も凄いですが音声はもっと凄い。CD以上のデータ量で収められた大迫力の演奏は、オリジナルSABBATHのヘヴィな演奏をダイレクトにファンへ伝えます。本作のサウンドを優れた再生環境で、スピーカーから出力すれば、たちまちライヴ会場の盛り上がりが空気をビンビン震わせて聴き手をノックアウトするでしょう! 「N.I.B.」でギーザーが発するベースノートはボリュームも満点。アイオミのギターリフとジャジーなフレーズが、ビル・ワードの個性的なドラミングと共にスウィングするような「Fairies Wear Boots」も、独特なノリを観る者にたっぷり味わわせます。突き刺さるようなダイレクト感たっぷりで、ライヴ中の大きな見どころだと言えます。さらにこの日はオジーも絶好調で、彼らしいハイテンションなパフォーマンスをじっくりと観察できるのも嬉しいです。ステージで飛び跳ねる姿もエネルギッシュですが、歌声もなかなか良く出ているのは嬉しく、「After Forever」や「Into The Void」でも公式作品で聴けたようなヴォーカルを聴かせてくれます。
ディスク2の冒頭「Snowblind」そして「Dirty Women」も見逃せません。オジーの呪術的な歌が聴き手を惑わすような前者、’80年代のソロ・キャリアにも通じる後者など、現代のサウンドで蘇ったクラシックの数々は、今日の感覚で聴いても並外れたオリジナリティとヘヴィネスを感じさせます。
この後はアンコールまでオリジナルSABBATHならば外せない名曲群が連発されます。漂うスモークが曲の不気味さを演出する「Black Sabbath」、オリジナル編成では2曲ペアでひとつのような印象すらある「Iron Man」・「Children Of The Grave」まで、ノンストップのド迫力でファンを押し捲ります! ラストのアンコール「Paranoid」まで、88分間が壮絶なヘヴィネスと大興奮の波状攻撃。ファンはもはやオリジナルSABBATHの威厳にひれ伏すほかありません!

この’99年アメリカツアーは、アリゾナ州フェニックスにおけるレア曲満載のツアー初演を高音質で楽しめる「TOWARDS THE END OF CENTURY」(Shades)や、関係者流出の超迫力ステレオ・サウンドボードでツアー後半の模様をパッケージした「BOTTOMLESS PIT」(Import Title)を代表に、過去から多くの優良素材が知られています。しかし映像タイトルでここまで際立ったリアルさとクオリティを体感させるアイテムはこれまで無かったと断言して良く、本作は今後全てのSABBATHマニアの間で大定番の一本として尊重される事でしょう。本来ならばプレスDVDで登場して然るべき、オリジナル・メニュー付き・最高画質のメモリアル・タイトルを、ファンの皆さんはどうぞお見逃し無くゲットしてください。本作を手に入れられるチャンスは今回限りです!
