THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY TOUR 1974-1975 “. It is also famous for having produced a number of full sound boards, but one that is too special is one of the best quality reprints.
That “special sound board” was recorded was “Liverpool performance on 19th April 1975”. There was an excavation rush of the full sound board of this tour about 10 years ago, but also in our shop released as “THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON EMPIRE”. Among many sound boards, it is a famous recording which became popular especially as “British Broadway” · “the most evolved dazzling sound board”, sold out in the blink of an hour · waste out of print. Before introducing what is special about this show, let’s first organize the full scale sound board.

· December 16 “MAPLE LEAF LAMB (24 performances)”
· December 17 “ROCHESTER 1974 (25 performances)”
· January 10 “DEFINITIVE FLORIDA LAMB (28 performances)”
· January 11 “DEFINITIVE LAKELAND 1975 (29 performances)”
· January 24 “LAMB MASTER IN LOS ANGELES (38 performances)”
· January 28 “THE LAMB LIES DOWN IN PHOENIX (41 performances)”
· April 19 【this work (84 performances)】

【The only home country full sound board】
Over, seven. There are other sound boards, but it is only partial. This is the only thing that can listen to the story work “Broadway of Dazzle” almost completely. As you can see, most are North American tours, the only one of which is the sound board of the home country British performance. This is the meaning of “British Broadway” mentioned earlier.
Of course, attention is not made only by UK performances. It was that sound that was truly special. Although all of the above seven are excellent sound boards, most of them are those that can see some kind of tape deterioration and noise. Among them, Liverpool performance boasts a glittering sound that can not be interrupted all the time, and a vivid stereo feel is also official. Along with the Lakeland performance, it was an unusual quality competing for the peak attack.
This work revived its excavation master with the latest and meticulous remastering. Of course, I am not doing an unnecessary money like raise the sound pressure uncannily. It keeps the vividness that the original sound board had, and organizes the rising and ringing of the sound. I realized a direct feeling which made it even clearer. While the previous “THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON EMPIRE” had a “historical sensation” that was excavated, this work is finished in a sound more like an official “work feeling”.

【Performance that will be a reach point of “5 GENESIS”】
It seems to be perfect for anything, but unfortunately it is not so. Just like in the previous work, there is a slight cut at the beginning of “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway” “Anyway”, and even in this work it is super 1 high 25 minutes at the beginning of “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway” It complements with a sound quality audience.
Because of this disadvantage, the vertex work is “DEFINITIVE LAKELAND 1975 (Virtuoso 363/364)”, but this work also exceeds that Lakeland performance. That is the essence of the live itself. GENESIS in the era of Peter Gabriel is also known as a growing period in which performance has improved with one album and one tour, but this work is also the last full sound board of that one is.
Among the above 7, I think that only this work will pass through and it will be understood that it is a late recording, but its growth is clear. “DEFINITIVE LAKELAND 1975” was similar to the officialized Los Angeles performance in two weeks, but this work also performed more than 40 live shows from then, the sharp performance played through the whole story. Phil Collins of “In The Cage” listens to the supernatural bass dora, Peter also participates in the performance “Lilywhite Lilith” also arrange to arrange forget the studio version. And with the highlight that corresponds to the original D side, overwhelming performances that impel the impossible rival which can not be heard are elicited.
Perhaps it was a tour that fully reproduced the album that grew to just this fraction. Members at that time seemed to have been trying to keep playing the same songs in the same song order each evening, but that was why they were polished and thoroughly trained. I do not know how conspicuous the principals were, but it was a completed ensemble like a trainer in a tiger’s hole. This is the meaning of “the most evolved dazzling sound board”.

Today is the era where you can taste ‘Dazzling Broadway’ with seven live performances. What is luxurious, but the overwhelming among them is “this special one” is this work. It is the most complete and beautiful “dazzling Broadway”, and it is also the final point of the “5-era GENESIS”. One masterpiece of polished masterpieces far beyond excellent sound board dimension, with modern technology. Please enjoy this extraordinary progressive rock polar field.

英国ロック史上に残る一大物語ツアー“THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY TOUR 1974-1975”。数々のフル・サウンドボードを生み出した事でも有名ですが、その中でも特別すぎる1本が最高峰クオリティで復刻です。
その“特別なサウンドボード”が記録されたのは「1975年4月19日リヴァプール公演」。10年ほど前にこのツアーのフル・サウンドボードの発掘ラッシュがありましたが、当店でも『THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON EMPIRE』としてリリース。幾多のサウンドボードの中でも“英国のブロードウェイ”・“最も進化した眩惑サウンドボード”として格別の人気を博し、瞬く間に完売・廃盤となった名録音なのです。このショウの何が特別かをご紹介する前に、まずはフルスケールのサウンドボードを今一度整理しておきましょう。

・12月16日『MAPLE LEAF LAMB(24公演目)』
・12月17日『ROCHESTER 1974(25公演目)』
・1月11日『DEFINITIVE LAKELAND 1975(29公演目)』

本作は、その発掘マスターを最新・細心リマスタリングで甦らせたもの。もちろん、無闇やたらに音圧を上げるような無粋なマネはしていません。元々のサウンドボードが持っていた鮮やかさはそのままに、音の立ち上がりと鳴りを整理。より一層クッキリとしたダイレクト感を実現しました。以前の『THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON EMPIRE』が発掘物然とした“歴史感覚”があったのに対し、本作はよりオフィシャルっぽい“作品感覚”のサウンドに仕上がっています。

何から何まで完璧なようですが、残念ながらそうではありません。従来作と同じように「The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway」「Anyway」の冒頭にわずかなカットがあることは変わらず、本作でも「The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway」冒頭1分25秒ほどを超高音質オーディエンスで補完しています。
この欠点があるため、頂点作は『DEFINITIVE LAKELAND 1975(Virtuoso 363/364)』となってしまうのですが、本作はそのレイクランド公演を超えるものもある。それは、肝心要のライヴそのもの。ピーター・ガブリエル時代のGENESISは、アルバム1枚1枚、ツアー1本1本で演奏力が向上していった成長期としても知られますが、本作はその最後のフル・サウンドボードでもあるのです。
上記した7本の中でも本作だけが突き抜けて後期の録音なのがご理解いただけると思いますが、その成長度は明らか。『DEFINITIVE LAKELAND 1975』はオフィシャル化されたロサンゼルス公演と2週間違いで演奏も似ていましたが、本作はそれからライヴを40本以上もこなしており、切れ味鋭い演奏が全編を貫く。「In The Cage」のフィル・コリンズは神業級のバスドラを聴かせ、ピーターも演奏に参加する「Lilywhite Lilith」もスタジオ版を忘れさせるアレンジが見事。そして、オリジナルのD面にあたるハイライトでは、他では聴けない鬼気迫る圧倒的な演奏が繰り広げられるのです。

The main volume press 2CD is the only British recording even among ‘full of dazzling Broadway’ full sound boards. However, although it is not “full”, there is another British sound board in “THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY TOUR”. In order to fully enjoy the reach point of “5 people GENESIS”, bonus will be attached to that highest peak live album.
That “another British sound board” is “London performance on April 15, 1975”. This show is FM broadcast, it is a large staple in a large staple that has produced many episodes since ancient times. This work is the ultimate superb sound board album woken up from the pre-broadcast master reel of BBC treasure which is the highest among them. In the explanation of this volume, only the sound board was extracted, but let’s see the position of the show from the whole picture of the tour here.

“November 18” Dazzling Broadway “released”
· November 20 – December 18: North America # 1 (26 performances)
· January 9 – February 4: North America # 2 (19 performances)
· February 19 – April 12: Europe # 1 (34 performances)
· April 14 – May 2: UK (16 shows) ← ★ Coco ★
· May 8 – 24: Europe # 2 (13 performances)

Over all, 104 performances. Liverpool performance of the main press 2CD is a total of 84 performances, and the London performance of this work corresponds to 81 performances. Strictly speaking, the final “Europe # 2” also has a pro shot of the Paris performance, which is less than three minutes. It will be understood that this volume press 2CD and this work are almost “5 people GENESIS” last professional record.
The sound of such a work is an overwhelming sound board. Many FM boot legs have also been known as official classes, but the sound of this work is completely different. If stereo and mix are perfect, Genes is also the top class. Completely noiseless glossiness, rich squealing, synchronized feeling directly connected to the brain … …. The rhythmic sound just said that “real official sounds are like this” goes through the full story.
However, this “BBC Master Reel” did not include “all existing”. Unfortunately only one song “The Grand Parade Of Lifeless Packaging” was broadcast, but not recorded yet. So, this song is inserted from WESTWOOD ONE ‘s radio show disk. Of course, adding this one song does not mean “full of dazzling Broadway”, but it is one piece of London performances as long as possible and with the best sound.
Also, I’m also happy with the famous piece “Watcher Of The Skies”. This tour is “Broadway All songs + Encore 1 songs”, this press 2CD is “The Knife”, and this work was “Watcher Of The Skies”. Although it is arranged at the beginning along the broadcast, the super masterpieces played with the polished performance of the final stage of Gabriel’s era are exceptional.

Unfortunately because it is not a full story, it is often overlooked, but since it is a master reel, the ultimate sound is different from the sound board of all places. GENESIS of Peter Gabriel era who created followers around the world. This volume press 2CD and this work are two consecutive sound boards that will also be the point of reach. Please, please also enjoy “the stylishness of British progressive” together.

本編プレス2CDは『眩惑のブロードウェイ』フル・サウンドボードの中でも、唯一の英国録音です。しかし、“フル”ではないものの、“THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY TOUR”には、もう1本の英国サウンドボードが存在します。“5人GENESIS”の到達点を一層深く、たっぷりとご堪能頂くため、その最高峰ライヴアルバムをボーナス付属いたします。


ただし、このBBCマスターリールには“現存するすべて”が収録されているわけではありませんでした。残念ながら1曲「The Grand Parade Of Lifeless Packaging」だけは放送されつつ、未収録でした。そこで、この曲はWESTWOOD ONEのラジオショウディスクからインサートしています。もちろん、この1曲を追加したところで『眩惑のブロードウェイ』全編とはならないわけですが、ロンドン公演を可能な限り長く、最高のサウンドで収めた1枚なのです。
また、名曲「Watcher Of The Skies」も嬉しい。このツアーは「ブロードウェイ全曲+アンコール1曲」となっており、本編プレス2CDは「The Knife」で、本作は「Watcher Of The Skies」だったわけです。放送に沿って冒頭に配されてはいますが、ガブリエル時代最終盤の磨き抜かれた演奏力で奏でられる超名曲は格別です。


1. Watcher Of The Skies 2. Cuckoo Cocoon 3. In The Cage 4. The Grand Parade Of Lifeless Packaging
5. The Story Of Rael Part 1 6. Back In N.Y.C. 7. Hairless Heart 8. Counting Out Time
9. The Carpet Crawlers 10. Lilywhite Lilith 11. The Waiting Room 12. Anyway
13. Silent Sorrow In Empty Boats 14. The Colony Of Slippermen 15. Ravine
16. The Light Dies Down On Broadway 17. Riding The Scree
