Mike Millard Would not was the taper Endoi from Dylan utterly and retrospect. Ticket competition is extremely fierce from that showed a surge say the United States is also a social phenomenon, tour of 1974, which is that he started the concert recording official in “BEFORE THE FLOOD” the LA Forum concert even if it is possible to record if it will be the value has become lower since it was released. And Rolling Thunder Review of 75-76 years ending before reaching the West Coast. Sonaruto chance to Millard West Coast taper to record Dylan in the 1970s was not considered only tour in ’78.
Our shop has released under such circumstances “LOS ANGELES 1978 1ST NIGHT: UNCIRCULATED MILLARD 1ST GEN” has attracted the attention of fans around the world at that Millard recording of Dylan live finally appeared. It was in the record state that only live recording of the second half, but groan as “Millard Korezo” Again, the thing that everyone is satisfied with the quality of exceptional. But in that such unexpected surprise Yara cold, Millard sound source was recorded different performances of the same LA Live Week as early appeared. Millard told me to record the Universal Amphitheatre June 3 this time. And this time is recording a long version was recorded also the first half!
Missing part of the recording’s less than the recording of June 1 last time, but the place still has not been recorded and a little two songs from the opening is I’m seems Millard anything. So upon this release, we have achieved a complete recording can be supplemented with audience recording of the same day another there. Sound source that was used to there is also a sound image on a hard, it is something that can be listened enough, impact when the sound source is switched to Millard recorded at the beginning of “Baby Stop Crying” from there skipping the waist without hyperbole then you’ll be put away.
Whether this audience recording of 1978? No doubt you can not believe your ears with. Clearness of incredibly worthy to be called Millard standards exactly, and stereo. And the sound image on it is not an exaggeration to say that the sound board class than anything else. It ensures that that satisfy absolutely that Dylan fans, of course, also like those who have been collect the rare recordings in the name of Millard When this happens.
It seems that there is no doubt that the attention of fans around the world this time just say the release of the recording of such a different dimension level, but also tremendous swells and performance of this day! Its appearance has been transmitted more than enough from the “LOS ANGELES 1978 1ST NIGHT”, but there are also those really great performances of the day. It is obvious even just compare the sound and take live album “AT BUDOKAN” and “Mr. Tambourine Man”. Climax of the audience and playing Dylan and band boasts a rock-solid unity with the Australian experience and performances Japan tour, I caught me without Millard peaked too. I’m interesting also go sign of “AT BUDOKAN” release is of that came out in the middle of LA continuous performances fought playing such high tension. When the official release which we can fit the stage performance of the initial hardness remains is determined, a live performance of the band and Dylan because I that had reached the next step. If it becomes Millard recording was recorded at the highest quality and performance of such a maximum, press CD release of limited natural. Please listen carefully really great sound source, and no complaint!

振り返ってみればマイク・ミラードはつくづくディランから縁遠いテーパーだったのではないでしょうか。彼がコンサート録音を始めたとされる1974年のツアーは全米が社会現象とも言える盛り上がりを見せたことからチケット争奪戦は熾烈を極め、仮に録音できたとしてもLAフォーラム公演は「BEFORE THE FLOOD」でオフィシャルリリースされたことから価値が低くなってしまったことでしょう。それに75-76年のローリング・サンダー・レビューは西海岸に到達する前に終了。そうなると西海岸テーパーのミラードが70年代のディランを録音するチャンスは78年ツアーしか考えられませんでした。

そんな中で当店がリリースした「LOS ANGELES 1978 1ST NIGHT: UNCIRCULATED MILLARD 1ST GEN」は遂に現れたディラン・ライブのミラード録音ということで世界中のファンの注目を浴びました。ライブ後半のみの収録という録音状態ではありましたが、やはり「これぞミラード」と唸らせる、別格のクオリティに誰もが納得されたものです。ところがそんな驚きも冷めやらぬ中、早くも同じLAライブ・ウィークの別公演を収録したミラード音源が登場。今回は6月3日のユニバーサル・アンフィシアターをミラードが録音してくれました。しかも今回は前半部分も収録したロング・バージョンな録音です!
録音の欠損部分は前回6月1日の録音よりも少ないのですが、それでもオープニングから二曲と少しが録音されていないところが何ともミラードらしいですよね。そこで今回のリリースに際し、そこには同日別のオーディエンス録音を補てんして完全収録を実現しています。そこに使った音源もなかなかにオンな音像であり、十分に聴けるものなのですが、そこから「Baby Stop Crying」の序盤で音源がミラード録音へ切り替わった際の衝撃は掛け値なしに腰を抜かしてしまうことでしょう。
そんな異次元レベルの録音のリリースというだけで今回も世界中のファンの注目を浴びることは間違いなしと思われますが、この日の演奏や盛り上がりがまた凄まじい!その様子は「LOS ANGELES 1978 1ST NIGHT」からも十二分に伝わってきましたが、この日の演奏も本当に素晴らしいものがあります。それは「Mr. Tambourine Man」をライブアルバム「AT BUDOKAN」のテイクと聴き比べただけでも一目瞭然。その日本公演やオーストラリア公演を経験して盤石の結束を誇るバンドとディランの演奏と観客の盛り上がり、それもミラードはあますことなく捉えてくれたのです。そんなテンションの高い演奏を繰り広げたLA連続公演の最中に「AT BUDOKAN」リリースのゴー・サインが出たというのがまた面白いものですよね。初期の固さが残るステージ・パフォーマンスを収めたオフィシャルリリースが決まった時、ディランとバンドのライブ演奏は次の段階を迎えていたというのですから。そんな最高の演奏を最高の音質で収録したミラード録音となれば、限定のプレスCDリリースも当たり前。本当に素晴らしい音源をじっくりと聴いてみてください、文句なし!
