The best source tapes for the Bowie Nassau 1976 show. The sound is better than the official release which has loud mastering. Panic in Detroit is complete and 6 minutes longer than the official release.

Last year, the legendary masterpiece soundboard “Nassau 1976” realized solely in official. The highest peak sound version that should be said beyond the official appearance is a permanent preservation press 2 CD appears.
The large representative sound board of “ISOLAR 1976 TOUR” was recorded as “Nassau Performance on March 23, 1976”. This show is radio broadcast, and its sound board recording is a large staple in the classic that has produced numerous masterpieces since ancient times. In 2010, it was formulated as a bonus of “STATION TO STATION” Super Deluxe Edition, and in 2017 it was released as a “LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM ’76” single board. As a result, the role of the underground ended … but it was not the case. When the joy of formalization gradually woke up, it became to be said that “the sound of the radio broadcast version is better” between maniacs. More than that is “Panic In Detroit”. The official board was edited in about 6 minutes, but originally Dennis Davis’ drum solo was included. This work is a live album that studied the highest peak of such radio broadcast version sound board.
There are countless early exits only in super famous sound boards, but among them master who is known as the highest peak from mania is master known for Why Arts label board. This work, based on its best version, arranges the song order to the actual concert, supplementing “Waiting for the Man”, “Queen Bitch”, “Life on Mars?” Not broadcasted with other best sound boards . Therefore, “Five Years” is not recorded and “Life on Mars?” Is halfway, but all songs are different from the official “LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM ’76”. It is one piece that can be said as “the back version of the official board”.
Actually, that sound is excellent. Because the official board was mixed in 2009, the sound pressure was also high, it was a contemporary sound full of sounds tightly every corner, but this work has a real feeling of the 70’s wonderful. Although the official version was a feeling that both the guitar and the rhythm team pushed powerfully with the core only the core, this work is rather fine edge of the edge. There is a skimmer who breathes each musical instrument, realistic enough that the vibrations of strings and leather come to my eyes. The snare also has no sound pressure that pierces penguins and ears, and you can enjoy a very natural ensemble.
It is alright as a singer of the Bowie. The official board is a mix that seems to ride “on top” of even high sound pressure playing. Generally, Bowie is the leading role, so it seems to be natural as well, but because the emphasis on its master-slave relationship, there is no stereoscopic feeling in the singing voice itself, just like karaoke. In contrast, this work is part of the band as a bowie. The breath feeling of the band who stands on the same stage and sympathizes in the ensemble is real. Although the Bowie is featured in the official board in the feeling heard, it is overwhelming that this work is a three-dimensional feeling on the spot, real live feeling.
Drawing with that sound is a show suitable for the legendary name. Speaking of “ISOLAR 1976 TOUR” best sound board, “THE 1976 TOUR REHARSAL TAPE (Wardour – 276)” “ROTTERDAM 1976 (Wardour – 186)” is also very popular, but in the meaning of knowing the relationship Let’s confirm the position with.

“January 23” STATION TO STATION “Release”
· February 2 – March 26: North America (40 shows) ← ★ Coco ★
· April 7th – 17th: Europe # 1 (8 shows)
· April 24 – May 18: European # 2 (16 performances)
“September” LOW “production start”

This is an overview of “STATION TO STATION” era. “THE 1976 TOUR REHARSAL TAPE” was the rehearsal for the first day of the tour, “ROTTERDAM 1976” was the soundboard album of the final section “Europe # 2”. In contrast, the Nassau performance of this work is the 39th performance of the “North America” ​​leg. As we went around the United States for about two months, the ensemble got useless compared to the rehearsal, yet the ambitions of the tour middle stage are still not interrupted. Moreover, this work exceeds the official also real / sound / natural mix. I can feel the breathing feeling of such a band. It is a masterpiece that has been called “a monumental show for Bowie” for a long time, but its superb stereophonic sound board is even brilliant.
More definitely, “Panic In Detroit” again. From the core mania of Bowie, “the incredibly brilliant”, “the best live version ever made” is a performance that is being acclaimed during the performance. Stacy Haydon’s intro is called “bliss”, Bowie’s singing voice is also excellent. Denis Davis will take all of them with such a performance. Scattered like a lap that jumps out in the second half, spreading a long drum solo in various colors is also amazing. It is never a break time etc, but applause also boasts applause from the audience seating, and the great cheers flight. In the official the whole solo cut solo was actually a splendid show highlight … …. It can be tasted plenty with official bare feet high quality sound board.

The short of “Five Years” not recorded and “Life on Mars?” Does not go to the official “LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM ’76”, but this work has a natural feeling of the real 70’s and the highlight “Panic In Detroit “in full version. “The back version of the official board” and “Another Daimyo Edition”. Please enjoy it anytime forever with the supreme live album that only mania knows, 2 permanent preservation press.

昨年、オフィシャルでの単独リリース実現した伝説の名作サウンドボード“Nassau 1976”。その公式超えとも言うべき最高峰サウンド版が永久保存プレス2CDで登場です。
“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR”の大代表サウンドボードが記録されたのは「1976年3月23日ナッソー公演」。このショウはラジオ放送され、そのサウンドボード録音は古くから数々の名作を生み出してきた定番中の大定番。2010年には『STATION TO STATION』スーパー・デラックス・エディションのボーナスとして公式化され、2017年には『LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM ’76』として単独盤もリリースされました。それだけにアンダーグラウンドの役目は終わった……とも思われましたが、そうではなかった。公式化の歓喜が徐々に醒めてくるとマニア間で「ラジオ放送版の方が音が良い」と言われるようになった。それ以上なのが「Panic In Detroit」。公式盤は約6分に編集されていましたが、本来はデニス・デイヴィスのドラムソロがインクルードされていたのです。本作は、そんなラジオ放送版サウンドボードの最高峰を究めたライヴアルバムなのです。
超有名サウンドボードだけに無数の既発が存在するわけですが、その中でもマニアから最高峰とされているのがWhy Artsレーベル盤で知られるマスター。本作は、そのベスト・バージョンを元に曲順を実際のコンサートに揃え、放送されなかった「Waiting for the Man」「Queen Bitch」「Life on Mars?」を他の極上サウンドボードで補填したもの。そのため「Five Years」が未収録で「Life on Mars?」が途中までなのですが、全曲がオフィシャル『LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM ’76』と異なっている。「公式盤の裏バージョン」とも言える1枚なのです。
そのサウンドで描かれるのは、伝説の名に相応しいショウ。“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR”の極上サウンドボードと言えば、『THE 1976 TOUR REHEARSAL TAPE(Wardour-276)』『ROTTERDAM 1976(Wardour-186)』も大人気ですが、その関係を知る意味でもツアー全体像の中でポジションを確かめておきましょう。


これが『STATION TO STATION』時代の概要。『THE 1976 TOUR REHEARSAL TAPE』はツアー初日のリハーサル、『ROTTERDAM 1976』は最終盤「欧州#2」のサウンドボード・アルバムでした。それに対し、本作のナッソー公演は「北米」レッグの39公演目。約2ヶ月にわたってアメリカを巡業しただけにリハーサルとは比べものにならないほどアンサンブルがこなれ、それでいてまだツアー中盤の覇気が途切れていない。しかも、本作はオフィシャルも超えるリアル・サウンド/ナチュラル・ミックス。そんなバンドの呼吸感までも感じ取れる。古くから「ボウイにとっても記念碑的なショウ」と呼ばれてきた名演なわけですが、その機微まで鮮やかな極上ステレオ・サウンドボードなのです。
さらに決定的なのは、やはり「Panic In Detroit」。ボウイのコア・マニアから「信じられないほど華麗」「これまでに作られた最高のライブバージョン」と絶賛される名演中の名演。ステイシー・ヘインドンのイントロは「至福」と称され、ボウイの歌声も絶品。そんな熱演を差し置いて全部持って行ってしまうのがデニス・デイヴィス。多彩にして長いドラムソロを繰り広げ、後半に飛び出すラップのようなスキャットも凄い。決して休憩タイムなどではなく、客席からも拍手が沸き上がり、大歓声が飛びまくる。オフィシャルでは丸ごとカットされたソロが、実は見事なショウのハイライトだった……。それをオフィシャル裸足のハイクオリティ・サウンドボードでたっぷりと味わえるのです。

「Five Years」の未収録と「Life on Mars?」の短さは公式『LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM ’76』に及びませんが、本作にはリアルな70年代のナチュラル感があり、ハイライトの「Panic In Detroit」が完全版で楽しめる。「公式盤の裏バージョン」であり「もう1つの大名盤」。マニアだけが知る至高のライヴアルバム、永久保存プレス2CDでいつでも、いつまでもお楽しみください。
