Longer from Darkness tour of 1978, which had been thought to sound source had Detsukushi, is a complete unreleased soundboard recording of appeared. It is this sound that was recorded Louisville performances of early August, but present in such as a fan site even this is something that has been known. However, for example, lead to fade out in the “Because The Night” of the end of the muffled sound quality and small, and the fact that there was a fire in terms of sound quality and recording state, all of the items are also up to now while precious sound board recording but it had been overlooked without being released. Also sound source to this release the state is not changed, but to mitigate the profusely muffled feeling sound quality, even was a serious problem at the time of reproduction, the tape speed too fast also modified, and to it is easy to listen surprisingly state are reborn. Also named in the sound source that has been around between traders across intro to two discs, the state of the had been recorded in an incredible state “Sandy” also repair, we are cured into a complete state. Part of because of sound source that has been floating around in anything rough state between traders, or person such as core mania, will not than be surprised that it has been recorded in the state in which the that sound source was stable up here.
That said, is originally sound board recording that not a clear as well to compliment. But still became a carry to this release, while also monkey that valuable sound source, is the splendor of its performance. If nothing else first, Bruce and E · Street band before sounding the normal live-intro, named Clarence that was fueled by Bruce has played a cue Cayenne in sax, very humorous opening, this only But it would be a scene that would involuntarily and grinning if fan. Moreover, the performance that begins from there is just wonderful that this tour likeness was overflowing. Especially cover of Chuck Berry “Sweet Little Sixteen” this day for the first time is played, then, you will be frequently played throughout the summer. However, the highest in more of it would be “Prove It All Night” that’s popular in this tour. It is every night is a great blues guitar playing, but the exquisite play of this day is also. Again it is what Darkness Tour is to re-confirm that was something special. This precious send sound to the people of mania limited release of, Do not miss.

もはや音源が出尽くしていたと思われていた1978年のダークネス・ツアーから、完全未発表のサウンドボード録音が登場です。8月初頭のルイズビル公演を収録したこの音源ですが、これまでもファンサイトなどで存在は知られていたものです。しかし、こもった音質やショウの終盤の「Because The Night」でフェイド・アウトしてしまうなど、音質や収録状態の面で難があったことで、せっかくのサウンドボード録音ながらも今まで一切のアイテムがリリースされないまま見過ごされていました。今回リリースする音源もその状態は変わらないのですが、やたらとこもり気味な音質を緩和させ、さらに再生時の深刻な問題だった、速すぎるテープ・スピードも修正し、驚くほど聴きやすい状態へと生まれ変わっています。またトレーダー間で出回っていた音源ではイントロが二枚のディスクにまたがるという、信じられない状態で収録されていた「Sandy」の状態も補修し、完全な状態へと治しております。一部のトレーダー間で何とも雑な状態で出回っていた音源ゆえ、コアなマニアの方などは、あの音源がここまで安定した状態で収録されていることに驚かれるのではないでしょうか。
とはいえ、元々はお世辞にもクリアーとはいえないサウンドボード録音です。それでも今回リリースへの運びとなったのは、貴重な音源ということもさることながら、その演奏の素晴らしさです。まず何といっても、ブルースとE・ストリート・バンドが通常のライブ・イントロを鳴らす前に、ブルースに煽られたクラレンスが開演の合図をサックスで奏でているという、非常にユーモアのあるオープニング、これだけでもファンならば思わずニヤリとしてしまうような場面でしょう。しかも、そこから始まる演奏はこのツアーらしさが溢れた素晴らしいものばかりです。特にチャック・ベリーのカバー「Sweet Little Sixteen」はこの日初めて演奏され、その後、夏の間を通して頻繁に演奏されることになります。しかし、それ以上に最高なのが本ツアーで高い人気を誇る「Prove It All Night」でしょう。毎晩が素晴らしいブルースのギター・プレイですが、この日のプレイがまた絶品。やはりダークネス・ツアーがスペシャルなものであったことを再確認させられる内容です。この貴重音源をマニアの方に送る限定のリリース、ぜひお見逃しなく。
