世界的大ヒットを記録した「Let’s Dance」リリース期に行われた、ボウイにとって、5年振りとなる、1983年ワールド・ツアーから、ロンドン・ウェンブリー・アリーナ3連続公演・最終日、6月4日のライヴを、1時間48分に渡って超高音質オーディエンス録音で完全収録。録音者本人からの提供によるオリジナル・マスターを使用。10年前にMasterportレーベルよりリリースされた「Wembley 1983」のマスター音源を現行技術でリマスター、分離感・スケールの増した、よりクリアーでダイナミックなサウンドを誇る、破格の超高音質を実現しています。とにかく音が近く録れており、オーディエンス録音であることが信じられない位に整理されたサウンドは圧巻の一言。これが30年前の録音であることが到底信じられない程で、まるで1983年の会場にDATレコーダーを持ち込んで録音したかのようなサウンドです。オープニングからアンコールまで怒涛の最高音質で収録されており、「ここがここまで良いと言う事は、あの部分はどんなふうに聴こえるのだろう?」と聴き手はわくわくして聴き進むことができます。気になる方は是非、店頭で試聴してみて下さい。誰もが唖然となるほどの音がスピーカーから飛び出してきます。収容人数10,000人の大会場ウェンブリー・アリーナ、1983年のカセット録音で、いったいどうやったらこんな凄い録音が可能だったのかと、聴いていて不思議に感じるほどの最高音質盤。ボウイ・ファンは勿論、録音マニアの方にも接して頂きたい1枚です。自らの輝かしいキャリアを網羅するような全25曲。ポップになったと陰口を言われたこの時期ですが、抜群の演奏力をもつバックとボウイの圧巻のパフォーマンスは最初から最後まで聴き応え十分で、聴き応え満点の高品質な演奏に誰しもが、ただただ聴き入ってしまう事でしょう。セットはツアーを通じて固定されているので、ホームグラウンドのロンドン公演と言えど、驚くような選曲はありませんが、観客の熱狂もリアルで、高揚感と適度な臨場感、そして良い意味での大会場ならではの音の響きも感じられ、あらゆる意味で、最良の内容となっています。ボウイもバンドも絶好調の演奏を聴かせてくれますが、一か所、Let’s Danceの途中(1:25)でバンドが構成を見失い、一瞬、何が行ったかと聴き手も演奏者も混乱する箇所がありますが、ボウイもそこで乱れることなく、難なく元に戻してしまう所は流石(続くRed Sailsのカウントもやり直している様子が聞こえますので、ここでモニターチェックなどのテクニカルな修復調整があったのかもしれません。)。いずれにせよ、Serious Moonlight Tour音源としては、間違いなく世界最高峰の録音盤であり、内容的にも、80年代のボウイを代表する、ベスト・オブ・ベストの1枚になっています。リリース当時、大きな話題を呼んだオリジナル音源・超高品質録音盤のアップグレード版が、10年の時を経て、待望のプレス盤で好評Wardourより登場です!

1983年のロンドン・ウェンブリー公演は3日間に渡り開催され、見事に成功したショウのハイライトのひとつであることは言うまでもなく、また人気絶頂へと上り詰めている最中のデヴィッド・ボウイの安定したライブショウを楽しむには絶好のアイテムがリリースされた。音源そのものは既発盤と同じだが、この音のクォリティの高さはさすがに21世紀とも思える処理を実感できるし、だからこそのプレスCDによる記念碑的扱いでのリリースと言える。ショウそのものは変化の乏しい「Serious Moonlight Tour」なので無難に「The Jean Genie」から始まるセットで、特に目新しい部分は多くない点はやむを得ないがそれでもショウをじっくりと楽しめる音質とソース。それにしても過去の名曲群がこのメンツで演奏されるとダンサンブルな80年代風なニューロマンティクス的パワーステーションサウンドになってしまうのはどんな仕掛けなのだろうと思ってしまう程に暗さや陰りが見当たらないアレンジで、その分聴きやすく軽いイメージになってしまうあたりは往年のボウイファンを遠ざけてしまう側面。一方ではこのツアーにより、またこのアイドル的人気の時期にボウイを知り、ファンになった人も多いだろう。そんなリスナーには本作をたっぷりと楽しめる事は間違いなく、序盤から中盤、後半に行くにしたがって音の良さを実感し、また会場内にいるかのような錯覚すら覚えるお墨付きサウンドで聴ける。過去のアイテムが古くなってきて市場でも見かけることもなく、それでも良質なソースをここに知らしめている本作は有用なアイテムになるだろう。
