Valuable live not listed even on the official site of Dylan, has been announced from JEMS along with the tape recording of the day! Began in November 1979 from “Gospel Tour”, Portland, Oregon January 12, 1980 for the first time appeared in high-quality audience recording of the best level Paramount Theater performances. It is important sound source which has not been around at all, and yet, has already been recorded with high-quality sound surprisingly. Is also the time when the sound of gospel tour that began in ’79 has been further refined, in the first place, live in orthotopic of the 16th because only had been released under the title “Seeking Salvation” This time, it is a surprise to fans it can be said with the first appearance sound source. In high-quality sound in a tour that took place in 1979 in the “Slow Train Coming” after the announcement “Gospel Tour”, only songs that you sealed the hit songs of the past was written to convert after that was played, the set very specific you can enjoy. The thing with those bunkers directly to tape a vintage that has been discovered in recent years, but none whatsoever hiss and muffled sound. Sound and stable feel a moderate distance, you can enjoy a valuable performance. First of all sound source title itself was recorded “Gospel Tour” is small, and does not get to say a really valuable when it comes When are recorded from the opening part featuring four chorus further. Not to say that it is a one piece mania deep can not be ignored, but excellent live album with a high quality enjoyable enough even for beginners.


ディランの公式サイトにすら掲載されていない貴重なライヴが、当日の録音テープと一緒にJEMSから発表されました!1979年11月からスタートした「Gospel Tour」より、1980年1月12日のオレゴン州ポートランドはパラマウント・シアター公演が極上レベルの高音質オーディエンス録音で初登場。これまで一切出回っていなかった重要音源であり、それでいて、驚くほどに良質なサウンドで記録されています。79年から始まったゴスペルツアーのサウンドがさらに洗練された時期でもあり、そもそも、この時期は16日の同所でのライブが「Seeking Salvation」というタイトルでリリースされていただけなので、ファンには驚きの初登場音源と言えるでしょう。「Gospel Tour」は1979年『Slow Train Coming』発表後に行われたツアーで、過去のヒット曲を封印し、改宗後に書かれた曲だけが演奏されたという、非常に特異なセットを高音質で楽しむことができます。近年発見されたヴィンテージなテープをダイレクトに盤化したものとのことですが、音の籠りやヒスノイズも一切なし。適度な距離を感じさせる安定したサウンドで、貴重なパフォーマンスを堪能できます。そもそも「Gospel Tour」を収録した音源タイトルそのものが少なく、更にコーラス4人をフィーチャーしたオープニング・パートから収録されているとなると本当に貴重と言わざるを得ません。ディープなマニアは無視できない一枚であることは言うまでもありませんが、初心者でも十分に楽しめる高いクオリティを持った優良ライヴ盤。
