New sound source that contains the live vintage Bob Dylan is a very popular concert in Japan that are currently in progress will be two simultaneous release . First I’ll show you the first appearance of the sound source from the revival tour with The Band and 1974 . Sound source of that time I have been released items a number from the fact that recording for ” Resurrection great ” live albums were made late this tour , but the number when it comes to the sound source that captures the tour or early audience recording it will be limited . There was also that it has been churning sound of the tour first half is encased in a paper sleeve In the late 1990s , but to be honest it ‘s was not a level that fans can enjoy there as well as deviation of pitch and sound quality is one more quotient .
But live recordings in Hollywood Supotatoriamu which is the first appearance this time will be amazed absolutely ” sound this good sound quality ? What was buried in the first half of the tour ” he said. Not just a stereo recording boasts fine-tuned clearness , should be all the more surprised that a condition on the sound image is also a pretty good balance . However the point playing a balance left side because it is a negative point in recording the original state , I finish in a state where more easy to listen to and correct the orientation . It was a release of good sound source as it among the top three in this tour definitely by this .
Performance twice a day is performed live at the venue named Hollywood Supotatoriamu to some in Florida , I have recorded the first- show this time . Goodness of the sound so far has been given even more than , where the announcement from Bill Graham , who served as a promoter in this tour before the band and Dylan appeared to be heard would be valuable indeed . However, evolved singing Dylan to something ” exaggerated ” enough progress , this tour is the such as the love-it-or-hate-it between mania is famous tone is heard in the ” revival great ” actually . But singing Dylan is not exaggeration to there , the first half of this tour will hear the singing of the expression ” good Suites by ” applies just as well in this live .
And I had to try a variety of quite what the first half of the song , but this tour set list from becoming a wholly fixed and reaches the mid- point was also unsatisfactory anything mania . Voice of reason alone “interesting person of the first half of the tour is listening ” a lot , and that , I want to release more sound sources during this period I was the wish of mania .
There was a scene that is played and ” Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat ” in the first half of the day this point , but that the ’74 version of this song also has become the last this live . On the contrary selection of music because I would have been immobilized from further show a second time this day , this was the scene all the more valuable . The play because it is a song that was playing every night ( Hawks at the time) band and Dylan in 1966 , I show that can be missed this ‘s became the last . The The Band also affirmed and playing rare ” Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever ” , it’s high-quality sound source undisputed combines the fun of the music selection and the atmosphere relaxed tour the first half of this tour .
And I collect rare performance of the tour in the first half bonus . Achieve a recording of a pitch accurate and clear much than what has been released in the past , ” It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry ” , such as in Toronto . Also has been recorded twice only ” Wedding Song ,” but it is easy to see how singing Dylan and performance is what has changed by letting hear the two takes of Seattle a month after just from Philadelphia premiere I shows . Performance of Philadelphia January 7 is the first appearance , and sound quality has been improved even better Seattle . I summarizes such as the first press of the CD in Boston ” Blowin ‘In The Wind ” recital with a musical instrument version , the ’74 Tour title of enhancement as well as the main Hollywood further . Use the photo of the day also jacket , release the best to achieve true!

その点この日は前半で「Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat」が演奏されるという場面がありましたが、この曲の74年バージョンというのもこのライブが最後となってしまいました。それどころかこの日二回目のショウから選曲がさらに固定化されてしまうのですから、これはなおさら貴重な場面でした。その演奏も66年にディランとバンド(当時はホークス)が毎晩演奏していた曲ですので、これが最後となってしまったのが惜しまれる出来を示しています。またザ・バンドもこのツアーでは珍しい「Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever」を演奏するなど、ツアー前半のゆったりした雰囲気と選曲の面白さを兼ね備えた文句なしの高音質音源だと断言します。
そしてボーナスにはツアー前半のレア・パフォーマンスを収録。トロントでの「It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry」などは過去にリリースされていたものよりも格段にクリアーかつ正確なピッチでの収録を実現。また「Wedding Song」だけ二回収録されていますが、初演のフィラデルフィアからちょうど一か月後のシアトルの2テイクを聴かせることで演奏やディランの歌い方がどのように変化したのかを分かりやすく示しているのです。1月7日フィラデルフィアの演奏は初登場ですし、シアトルの方も音質が向上しました。さらにはボストンでの「Blowin’ In The Wind」弾き語りバージョンは初プレスCD化など、メインのハリウッドだけでなく充実の74年ツアー・タイトルにまとめています。ジャケットにも当日の写真を使い、正に最高のリリースが実現します!
