The original FACES super-superior sound board from Ronnie Lane’s departure is reproduced. It is appearance in permanent preservation press 2CD.
The treasure is the soundboard recording left by Kano’s prestigious BBC. It is a decision board which arranged the Paris Theater 2 performances of “February 8, 1973” and “April 1 year” on one disc. This 2 performance sound board is just decisive. The first appearance is over 15 years ago, but both are not Air Check, but digitized from the BBC’s main origin. What’s more, after that, they were refined by careful mastering and evolved into the ultimate sound. Along with Ronnie Lane’s participation, it is a supreme live album that surpasses even the traditional album “COAST TO COAST: OVERTURE AND BEGINNERS”. Let’s introduce each disc individually.

[Disc 1: Not broadcasted February 8, 1973 sound board] The first thing to appear is the sound board of “February 8” recorded just before the release of “OOH LA LA”. It was recorded at “Paris Theater”, but for some reason it was not broadcast and it was a soundboard that had been stored. This disk is a digital version of such a treasure sound board directly from the BBC master tape. When it first appeared, there were gaps in “Memphis, Tennessee” and “Miss Judy’s Farm”, but in this work we use a perfectly seamless high peak master.
And the quality is perfect. It’s a monaural recording (so you put it in store?) But the sound itself is perfect. There is no air check, and there is no cutting on the master. The reality is that the rod sings right there and Ronnie’s guitar sounds in the brain. It is a super high quality sound board to be released rather than saying that it can be officially released.
The show drawn by the sound is a collection of works until 1973. As well as being uniformly selected from “FIRST STEP” to the latest work “OOH LA LA”, as well as the solo track of the rod played a lot with the traditional record “COAST TO COAST” as well. Indeed, “AN OLD RAINCOAT WON’T EVER LET YOU DOWN” is showing off from all the works other than. Moreover, the cover with “COAST TO COAST” is only three out of 12 songs “Angel”, “I’d Rather Go Go” and “It’s All Over Now”. Selection, organization, performance, sound … one of the most important in one sense.

[Disc 2: Sound board of broadcast original recording April 1973 sound board] It is the same “Paris Theater” that will appear subsequently, but the sound board of “April 1” which will be about two months later. This is a sound source that was actually broadcasted, but it’s not from air check but from the super rare BBC’s transcription disc.
And here is the best. A large number of already-deformed groups have colored the history only for famous broadcasts, but this work is the highest peak. The freshness of the original recording is overwhelming, and this is a stereo sound board. Furthermore, the scratch noise left slightly by meticulous mastering is also removed as much as possible, and it is finished to sharp sound. Especially, the bass line of Ronnie Lane, which comes to mind with stereo feeling and remastering, is the best. Of course, I could hear clearly with the disc 1, but this is a mix where the BBC emphasizes the bass, and the presence is greater. Given the importance of the original FACES, this disc is also the most important soundboard.
The show drawn by the sound changes like only two months. This disc is narrowly narrowed down to disc 1 which was culmination, and the original is limited to 3 pieces of “Nembutsu to the ear of a horse”, “OOH LA LA” and “NEVER A DULL MOMENT”. At the time, it was a show that featured the latest 3 cards. And another feature covers. In addition to John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy”, he also plays “The Stealer” for FREE. Paul Rogers was in love with the rod, but it sings the song of the famous song of FREE …. I can enjoy the best and the best singing voice on the best stereo sound board.

After this, they are touring North America, but Ronnie Lane withdraws during a tour of Triumphal Arch in June. Even though Tetsu Yamauchi came, I could not stop my move towards dissolution. This work is the deciding board where you can enjoy the 2 stages of the maturity of such original FACES with the best sound board. It is a great live album of British Rock. Please enjoy it forever and forever with the permanent preservation press 2CD.

その秘宝とは、かの名門BBCが残したサウンドボード録音。「1973年2月8日」と「同年4月1日」のパリス・シアター2公演をディスク1枚ずつに配した決定盤です。この2公演サウンドボードは、まさに決定的。初登場したのは15年以上前ですが、どちらもエアチェックではなく、BBCの大元からデジタル化。しかも、その後になって細心マスタリングで磨き上げられ、究極サウンドに進化したもの。ロニー・レーンが参加していることも併せ、もはや伝統盤『COAST TO COAST: OVERTURE AND BEGINNERS』さえも凌駕する至高のライヴアルバムなのです。それでは、各ディスクを個別にご紹介していきましょう。

まず登場するのは『OOH LA LA』完成直後、発売直前だった「2月8日」収録のサウンドボード。“パリス・シアター”で録音されたのですが、どういうわけか放送されず、お蔵入りとなっていたサウンドボードです。このディスクは、そんな秘宝サウンドボードをBBCのマスター・テープから直接デジタル化したもの。初登場時には「Memphis, Tennessee」「Miss Judy’s Farm」に欠けもあったのですが、本作では完璧にシームレスな最高峰マスターを使用しています。
そのサウンドで描かれるショウは、1973年までの集大成。『FIRST STEP』から最新作『OOH LA LA』まで満遍なくセレクトされているだけでなく、伝統盤『COAST TO COAST』と同じくロッドのソロ曲もたっぷりと演奏。実に『AN OLD RAINCOAT WON’T EVER LET YOU DOWN』以外の全作から披露しているのです。しかも、『COAST TO COAST』との被りは全12曲中3曲「Angel」「I’d Rather Go Blind」「It’s All Over Now」のみ。選曲、編成、パフォーマンス、サウンド……あらゆる意味で最重要となる1枚です。

そのサウンドで描かれるショウは、わずか2ヶ月様変わり。集大成だったディスク1に対し、本作はグッと絞り込まれており、オリジナルは『馬の耳に念仏』『OOH LA LA』『NEVER A DULL MOMENT』の3枚限定。当時、最新3枚をフィーチュアしたショウなのです。そして、もう1つの特徴がカバー。こちらにはジョン・レノンの「Jealous Guy」に加え、FREEの「The Stealer」も演奏しているのです。ポール・ロジャースはロッドに憧れていたわけですが、そのFREEの名曲を歌うロッド……。その貴重にして最高の歌声を極上ステレオ・サウンドボードで楽しめるのです。

High Quality TV Live Compilation PRO-SHOT

Click Image To Enlarge

Main part press 2CD is a cultural heritage grade sound board album of original FACES. Of course, it is an unnecessary super masterpiece such as a bonus if it was originally, but there are actually professional shots that are just as super fine as the video. Therefore, it will be attached specially so that you can collect the top record at once.
What is included in such a book is five television program pro shots. It is only a classic one from old times, but this work is the highest peak. Most are super beautiful versions rebroadcasting from the digital age of the 21st century, and several exceptional songs have been compiled with only the highest master ever recorded. Let’s introduce five programs individually.

[December 7, 1970: Marquee Club Performances (7 songs)] First to appear is a famous video representing early FACES. A multi-camera pro shot of a marquee club performance that appeared during the production of “LONG PLAYER” and “EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY”. This film is only super high quality, but this video is especially new, and was re-broadcast in 2013 on the German broadcaster “WDR”. Although it is a film image with a vintage vintage-like texture, almost no noise or master deterioration is found, and even the graininess of the film is sharp in super-high-quality images, and the standard pro shot is covered.
The contents drawn by the beauty of the picture are amazing again. “Devotion” “Flying” “Too Much Woman” “Gasoline Alley” “Around The Plynth” which can not be heard in the main part press 2CD is delicious, but more than that is the picture itself. I understand that it is a narrow club, but more than that, it is a series of face ups. The performance of the hand of the guitar and the whole body is also on its own, taking as big a face as possible. The youthful expression, bold camera work, and the time-honored telop font are also full of mood. It is a great masterpiece video that can be felt about 28 minutes in the beginning of rock video that can not be considered in modern times.

【April 15, 1971 Hamburg performance (1 song + α)】
It will be followed by a pro shot with a timing of just before the release of “LONG PLAYER” and just before the release of “EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY”. It is a German documentary film “Sympathy For The Devil” Superstars “” with a theme of Hamburg performances. It was broadcast on the German television station “NDR” in 2005.
The German commentary will be covered in the scenery of the rod and backstage that arrived at the airport, but in the second half the rod sings “Gasoline Alley” with a cappella. The microphone of the camera picks up the singing voice, and the voices of children who are playing around are slightly inhaled. At the end you can hear the singing voice of the rod with a little voice, and the rod laughs and returns the voice back. That’s a very lively, full-blown video of singing in the city.

【12 February 1972 Rainbow performance (1 song)】
The third is a pro shot live with a timing just before the production of “NEVER A DULL MOMENT”. It is “Stay With Me” played on “THE RAINBOW” in London. The original was broadcast in Sweden in March 1972, but it is unclear whether this is an original or a rebroadcast. However, the quality is great again, and it would be amazing if it was a 70’s original broadcast. No noise and no master deterioration is seen, and it is a master of the highest peak not overlooked even if it is mixed in 21st century broadcasting.

[TOP OF THE POPS (1971/1972: 4 songs)] Digital rebroadcast video of the 21st century again. Here is what appeared on BBC’s specialty program “TOP OF THE POPS”. It contains 4 songs “Richmond”, “Bad ‘n’ Ruin”, “Maggie May” and “Angel” in 1971 and 1972.
In addition to the master of the prestigious BBC, ultra-high-quality images that have fallen through even in this work just for digital rebroadcasting in 2008/2009. That’s exactly what makes it beautiful to compare to the images recorded yesterday yesterday. In addition to the beauty of the image, the content is also great. Although the mood of the program is different from that of the live performance on stage, the audience in Sakura has a sense of the times as to clothes and movement. In addition, it is also a point that three songs other than “Angel” can not be heard even with the main press 2CD among the four songs to be played.

[March 10, 1973 Fallburg show (3 songs + α)] The last is a pro shot when she appeared in the Dutch festival “POP GALA ’73” held between Disc 1 and Disc 2 of the main press 2CD. It was broadcasted on the TV program “CULTURA 24” of the local public broadcasting association “VARA”. It is not transmitted whether it is an original broadcast again or a rebroadcast, but the beauty of the image is such that the quality itself is “digital rebroadcast”. It is the best to see the stage live of 3 songs “Memphis, Tennessee”, “True Blue” and “Cindy Incidentally” in its quality, but the last highlight is also the highlight. On the backstage with five people (shower room?), They choired the Marx brothers, “One Last Sweet Cheerio.” As mentioned earlier, the original organization will collapse in the past three months, but the band-like appearance that does not make us feel any signs is a fun scene.

It is a definitive video work that has been assembled over 1 hour and 10 minutes of the super-super pro shot of the original FACES. Rather than the bonus of the main press 2CD, which is the BBC’s finest sound board, it is the video edition that will be the two greatest treasures. Please enjoy it together.

まず登場するのは、初期FACESを代表する有名映像。『LONG PLAYER』や『EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY』の制作中に出演したマーキー・クラブ公演のマルチカメラ・プロショットです。本作は超極上クオリティばかりですが、この映像は特に新しく、ドイツの放送局“WDR”で2013年に再放送されたもの。時代柄ヴィンテージ感覚の風合いのフィルム映像ではあるものの、ノイズやマスター劣化はほとんど見当たらず、フィルムの粒子感までもが鮮明な超高画質でド定番プロショットが甦っているのです。
その映像美で描かれる中身がまた凄い。本編プレス2CDでは聴けない「Devotion」「Flying」「Too Much Woman」「Gasoline Alley」「Around The Plynth」も美味しいですが、それ以上なのが映像そのもの。狭いクラブなのは分かりますが、それ以上に表情ドアップの連発。ギターの手元や全身のパフォーマンスもそっちのけで、可能な限りデカい顔を撮りまくっている。その若々しい表情も大胆なカメラワークも時代がかったテロップのフォントもムード満点。現代では考えられないロック映像の黎明期を約28分に渡って感じられる大傑作映像です。

続いて登場するのは『LONG PLAYER』発売後、『EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY』発売直前というタイミングのプロショット。ハンブルグ公演をテーマにしたドイツのドキュメンタリー映像「Sympathy For The Devil “Superstars”」です。2005年にドイツのテレビ局“NDR”で放送されたものです。
空港に到着したロッドやバックステージの風景にドイツ語解説が被るのですが、後半にはロッドがアカペラで「Gasoline Alley」を歌う。カメラのマイクで歌声を拾っており、周囲で遊んでいるらしき子供たちの声もうっすら吸い込んでいる。最後には幼い声でロッドの歌マネをする声が聞こえ、ロッドも笑いながらマネし返す。それが非常に生々しく、街中で歌うムード満点の映像です。

3つめは『NEVER A DULL MOMENT』製作直前というタイミングのプロショット・ライヴ。ロンドンの“THE RAINBOW”で演奏される「Stay With Me」です。オリジナルは1972年3月にスウェーデンで放送されましたが、これはオリジナルなのか再放送なのか不明。ただし、クオリティはこれまた素晴らしく、70年代のオリジナル放送だとしたら驚異的。ノイズもマスター劣化も見られず、21世紀放送の中に紛れても見劣りしない最高峰のマスターです。

【TOP OF THE POPS(1971/1972年:4曲)】
再び21世紀のデジタル再放送映像。こちらはBBCの名物番組“TOP OF THE POPS”に出演したもの。1971年と1972年の4曲「Richmond」「Bad ‘n’ Ruin」「Maggie May」「Angel」をまとめて収録しています。

最後は、本編プレス2CDのディスク1とディスク2の間に行われたオランダのフェス“POP GALA ’73”に出演した際のプロショット。現地の公共放送協会“VARA”のテレビ番組“CULTURA 24”で放送されたものです。これまたオリジナル放送なのか、再放送なのか伝わっていませんが、クオリティ自体が「デジタル再放送だ」と言い張ってくるような映像美。そのクオリティで3曲「Memphis, Tennessee」「True Blue」「Cindy Incidentally」のステージ・ライヴが見られるだけでも最高ですが、さらに最後も見どころ。5人が揃ったバックステージ(シャワールーム?)で、マルクス兄弟の「One Last Sweet Cheerio」を合唱してふざけている。先述のように、この3ヶ月後にはオリジナル編成が崩壊してしまうわけですが、その予兆も感じさせないバンド然とした姿が楽しいシーンです。
