Bowie’s 50-year-old birthday concert was held at the big venue “Madison Square Garden” with a large number of guests. The super best stereo sound board album is appearance.
Such a special show was held “January 9, 1997,” about one month before “EARTHLING” was released. Bowie’s birthday is January 8th, but MSG has already been booked at the basketball game that day. The concert took place the next day. The show is most famous for its multi-camera pro shot on television broadcasts, but it is also full broadcast on German radio station “NDR2”. This work is a live album that recorded the radio broadcast version with the highest quality ever.
The radio version has changed the order of songs from the TV version, but the more important one is the overwhelming sound. In our shop, under the supervision of an overseas Bowie researcher, we have renewed the highest peak ever recorded on many of the most popular soundboard recordings. This work is one of them, and it is a direct CD from the FM broadcast DAT master. In fact, the quality of this work is extremely high. The TV version was also an official grade of question and answer, but this radio version is more neat. When I listened to it carefully, the sound of the TV version was panned at the peak, and I felt that the hitting sound of the drum was particularly limited, but it was not even on the radio. The midrange is also beautiful from the moment of attack to the sound of the disappearing moment, and the piano that blew up and rolled from there is sparkling with one sound and one sound from it. And the great bass that depicts the jungle beat that was at the heart of that time is also excellent. The bassa is fat but the flowing lines are clear, the sound is very rich and there is no cloudiness. From deep bass to treble, from faint to peak, all pitches and volumes are clear, and the series is also smooth, with a glossy feel encompassing everything.
This sound is completely official. If the TV version is the mastering master’s excavation official class, this work is a sound that should be called a master board official class comparable to an official studio work. Although many masterpiece sound boards are left in the “EARTHLING” era, this work is the sound quality, length, special feeling … at the top of all. It is a super-super-sounding world that I would like you to release even if it isn’t too bad to say that you can release it as it is.
The ultimate sound is depicted in a gorgeous show that will be one of Bowie’s entire careers. The set is to pre-empt “EARTHLING TOUR” half a year later, and the new song of “EARTHLING” which was before release at the time is also a big-screen behavior (especially “The Last Thing You Should Do” “Looking for Satellites” is a valuable premiere). But more important than that, luxurious guests. Louie lead to PIXIES’s Frank Black, FOO Fighters’ Dave Grohl, SONIC YOUTH, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS’s Billy Corgan, and THE CURE’s Robert Smith. The new and old charisma perform together to celebrate Bowie’s 50 year old. Let’s arrange the co-percussions here too.

● Frank Black (2 songs)
・ Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Fashion
● Dave Grohl (2 songs)
・ Hallo Spaceboy (with FOO FIGHTERS), Seven Years in Tibet
● SONIC YOUTH (1 song)

The most exciting of these is ally Lou Reed, who is introduced by Bowie as “The King of New York”. In addition to “I’m Waiting for the Man” and “White Light / White Heat” of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, “Queen Bitch” with their motifs written on them as well as a total of four songs of “Dirty Blvd.” To fulfill. Especially valuable is “Dirty Blvd.” Bowie also shares the vocals, but he sang this song on the stage only later or earlier. Also, speaking of specials unique to this day, it is a birthday song. After introducing the members, Gail Ann Dorothy sings on Mike Gerson’s piano, and about 20,000 large audiences follow. You can enjoy a number of such precious scenes on the official grade ultra-super stereo sound board.

Bowie has continued to boldly challenge new sounds even after 50 years of age. It is a super high-quality stereo sound board album that can taste his birthday concert with the highest quality ever. A show that shares stages with many heroes and heats up new and old famous music groups. “EARTH LING” era … No, it is a super-live live album that symbolizes “90’s of Bowie”. Please enjoy it with the press 2CD which leaves the shine forever.

その究極サウンドで描かれるのは、ボウイの全キャリアでも屈指となるゴージャス極まりないショウ。セットは半年後の“EARTHLING TOUR”を先取りするもので、当時リリース前だった『EARTHLING』の新曲も大盤振る舞い(特に「The Last Thing You Should Do」「Looking for Satellites」は貴重な初演です)。しかし、それ以上に重要なのが豪華なゲスト陣。PIXIESのフランク・ブラック、FOO FIGHTERSのデイヴ・グロール、SONIC YOUTH、THE SMASHING PUMPKINSのビリー・コーガン、そしてTHE CUREのロバート・スミスにルー・リード。新旧のカリスマがボウイの50歳を祝って共演するのです。ここで共演曲も整理しておきましょう。

・Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)、Fashion
・Hallo Spaceboy(with FOO FIGHTERS)、Seven Years in Tibet
・I’m Afraid of Americans
・The Last Thing You Should Do、Quicksand
・Queen Bitch、I’m Waiting for the Man、Dirty Blvd.、White Light/White Heat
・All the Young Dudes、The Jean Genie

中でも最も盛り上がるのは、ボウイから「ニューヨークの王」と紹介される盟友ルー・リード。THE VELVET UNDERGROUNDの「I’m Waiting for the Man」「White Light/White Heat」の他、彼らをモチーフに書かれた「Queen Bitch」、さらにはルーの「Dirty Blvd.」の合計4曲で共演を果たすのです。特に貴重なのは「Dirty Blvd.」。ボウイもヴォーカルを分け合うわけですが、彼がこの曲をステージで歌ったのは後にも先にもこの日だけ。また、この日ならではのスペシャルと言えば、バースデイ・ソング。メンバー紹介の後でマイク・ガーソンのピアノに乗せてゲイル・アン・ドロシーが歌い、約2万人の大観衆が付き従う。そんな貴重なシーンの数々をオフィシャル級の超極上ステレオ・サウンドボードで楽しめるのです。
