1975年武道館2日目にして、ジャパン・ツアー最終公演の、11月2日のライヴを収録した2枚組。2011年の5月に突如ネットにアップロードされた、それまで出回っていなかった当時の新ソースを収録。一部の友人関係にしか渡していなかったというこの秘蔵音源は、当時、ソニーの伝説的ハイスペック・カセットデッキ「デンスケ」とモノラルマイクにより、武道館アリーナ右ブロックのPAスピーカー前10mほどのポジションで録音されたものとのこと。それを録音者本人が後年にリマスターしたバージョンです。テープチェンジにより、「Stormy Monday」の7:39時点に欠落があることと、「Badge」のイントロが僅かにカットインになっていること、同曲1:50時点と「Further On Up The Road」5:59時点に音跳びがあるという欠点はありますが、2011年当時、36年の時を超えて日の目を見たこの音源は、ご本人が公開に踏み切る決意をしただけのことはある、注目の高音質を備えています。本テイクでは、原音の魅力を損なわず、更に音のクオリティを高めるための、適切なリマスター処理を行っています。元マスターでは低音域が強調され過ぎていた音像のバランスを改善し、高音域を鮮明に描き出した結果、音のこもりをなくし、格段に聴きやすい音質に変貌させました。まさに、覆っていたヴェールを一枚剥ぎ取ったかのような印象であり、これをこのままプレスCDでリリースしても問題ない程の充実のクオリティを実現しています。既発盤をお持ちの方も、当時、ダウンロードで入手された方も、この機会に、この素晴らしい録音に触れて、この音源の質の高さを実感されてはいかがでしょうか。特に本盤はリマスター済み優良別マスターという意味で、聴いてみる価値がある音源と言えます。
