British masterpiece recordings masters captured the “2000 Bowie” is appeared in the gift title. Sharpshooter and “masters”, in the taper of the United Kingdom resident, Paul McCartney, THE ROLLING STONES, Dave Gilmour, U2, etc., etc., have been working on many of the masterpiece. Also in our shop I a familiar name recording artist, he is also a big fan of Bowie. This week press CD from his collection “SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE 1997 2ND NIGHT (Wardour-189)”, but bonus CDR “SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE 1997 1ST NIGHT” will be released, of course, his Bowie collection is intended to stay only in it There is none. This work, one that contains the “June 27, 2000 BBC Radio Theatre performances” from such. Recently been released, it is also the performance of the two days after the sound board album midst popular “GLASTONSTONBURY FESTIVAL 2000 (Wardour-184)”.
As you can imagine from the fact that live at the BBC, this live is also recorded in the official, it was also used in the official board that summarizes the BBC recording “BOWIE AT THE BEEB”. However, the official board is recorded incomplete version of the show in CD1 sheets. “The London Boys,” “I Dig Everything” in the middle, we further the “Ziggy Stardust,” “Jean Genie”, “All The Young Dudes,” “Starman,” “Heroes” of late has been boldly cut. This work, such a masterpiece also covers group, we audience album full form of the show to listen.
Although the audience recording, there is British masters. Sound is different from the Sonjosokora of audience recording. Of course, a sense of distance does not go to say that zero of the line sound, musical sound is plenty of behind closed doors a sense of “BBC Radio Theatre” in the very clear. Vast reverberation in without blurring worry, it sounds to reign is openly Bowie singing on top of the reaction of fresh audience.
However, lights are usually followed by shadows. Singing voice of the Bowie can not be said to best condition. Clearly and upset of travel clear sound also Better yet Urameshiku, Shaw late to exceed the level of sound quality commenting. Of course, or try again stopped on the way in order not to out in the “Ziggy Stardust,” “All The Young Dudes” should rise voice, or I finished without sung the first place in the “Jean Genie”. Such a part is what is cut in the official record, but, I would know that it also was not be helped. To say that it is just two days after the “GLASTONSTONBURY FESTIVAL 2000”, it seems to be completely different person.

While gem British masters was recorded over by the arm, it suffers live album that the figure of Bowie would be to reveal in clear sound. The audience of the site, encouraging the struggle to Bowie, but we gave a warm applause, such as those struck by his enthusiasm, it is also a document album would assimilate with that feeling. Painful because by There are what hold on Bowie, surrounding it is warm fan of the home country overnight. I do not say never a great performance-name record, but that’s why I fairly dust and chest may become hot. One to meet again to never give up no Bowie in the last minute. Please, please send it to him heartfelt cheer.


英国の巨匠が“2000年のボウイ”を捉えた傑作録音がギフトタイトルで登場です。“巨匠”とは、イギリス在住のテーパーで、ポール・マッカートニー、THE ROLLING STONES、デイヴ・ギルモア、U2等々など、幾多の名作を手がけてきた名手。当店でもお馴染みの名録音家なのですが、彼はボウイの大ファンでもある。今週は彼のコレクションからプレスCD『SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE 1997 2ND NIGHT(Wardour-189)』、ボーナスCDR『SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE 1997 1ST NIGHT』がリリースされますが、もちろん、彼のボウイ・コレクションはそれだけに留まるものではありません。本作は、そんな中から「2000年6月27日BBCラジオ・シアター公演」を収めた1本。先日リリースされ、大好評真っ最中のサウンドボード・アルバム『GLASTONSTONBURY FESTIVAL 2000(Wardour-184)』の2日後のパフォーマンスでもあります。
BBCでのライヴということからも想像できるように、このライヴはオフィシャルでも録音され、BBC録音をまとめたオフィシャル盤『BOWIE AT THE BEEB』にも使用されました。ただし、その公式盤はショウの不完全版をCD1枚に収録。中盤の「The London Boys」「I Dig Everything」、さらには終盤の「Ziggy Stardust」「Jean Genie」「All The Young Dudes」「Starman」「Heroes」が大胆にカットされていたのです。本作は、そういった名曲群も網羅し、ショウの完全形が聴けるオーディエンス・アルバムなのです。
ただし、好事魔多し。そのボウイの歌声が絶好調とは言えない。ハッキリと不調の伝わるクリア・サウンドがいっそ恨めしくもなるのですが、音質うんぬんのレベルを超えてしまうのがショウ終盤。当然、盛り上がるべき「Ziggy Stardust」「All The Young Dudes」では声が出ないために途中で止めてやり直したり、「Jean Genie」ではそもそも歌わずに終えてしまったり。こうしたパートは公式盤ではカットされているのですが、それも致し方なかったと分かってしまうのです。『GLASTONSTONBURY FESTIVAL 2000』からわずか2日後だと言うのに、まったく別人のようです。
