GENESIS of Peter Gabriel era who created a follower all over the world. The super masterpiece sound board album that becomes the best masterpiece is appearing in 2nd press board. The highest peak is the Super Supreme Soundboard Recording of “Montreal Performance on April 21, 1974”. Yes, it is “DEFINITIVE MONTREAL 1974” which appeared about three years ago and shocked the impact.
Speaking of Montreal in 1974, it is a large staple in the classic. Known as the most famous broadcasting sound source in the Gabriel era, it has been producing a number of titles since the analog era. Even before 10 years ago the uncut board “DIGESTING ENGLAND” came as a decision board as a decision board, but this work is not that remaster. It is a further upgrade master that appeared in recent years.
Of course, it can not be said that it is the “highest peak” by merely being the vertex master of the classic sound source. Why is this sound like a vertex? It will come into view when you consider the Gabriel era in total. Let’s first divide the live of the Gabriel era into three.

A: 1970: Anthony Phillips era
B: 1971 – 1974: Concert in the Golden Age
C: 1974 – 1975: Dazzling Broadway Tour

It is divided into three types. “A” is an ordinary concert from “golden” five people until “SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND TOUR”, “C” is a normal concert until “SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND TOUR” since “A” is the extent to which several pieces of fine BBC sessions are left, It is a perfect reproduction show of the story album. “C” has several sound boards left, but album reproduction is the main, there are other songs about one or two songs to encore. That is wonderful, but in order to fully enjoy the dazzling famous group of Gabriel’s era, “B” which is still “before Broadway” is the key point.
However, when it comes to the soundboard of “B”, it is extremely few, and if it says that both the length and the quality are satisfied, it is narrowed down to almost three. In 1973, Leicester Performance of “LIVE: TEST PRESSING 2 LP” which is also official production, 1973 Rainbow Theater Performance, Officialized at Box “GENESIS LIVE 1973-2007”, and 1974 Montreal Performance of this work. In other words, this work is one of the “best 3” that is named side by side with the official twin. Moreover, this work is a big favorite in favor even among them. GENESIS of that time was popular and talented up. Even the album “SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND” was impressive that the skill of the performance team improved dramatically, but they are at the time to improve day by day, after living more proficient lives It makes me listen. This work ‘s Montreal performance is the late stage of the three vertex sound boards, the live board packed with the most tasty performances.
This work which is the summit master of such a best live is exactly one ultimate. It is 20 seconds longer than the already-released “DIGESTING ENGLAND”, and it is clear that it is a new master from the intro which the radio DJ’s voice also entered firmly. However, what is more important is the sound that goes through the whole story. Even the “DIGESTING ENGLAND” which was natural and rich in sounds is wonderful, even though it was only perfect, I was concerned about the unnaturalness as if I finished artificially with a sound like equalizing it as if I heard it after this work To get away. Justly perfect official class …. No, it is a sound that goes beyond the official that tends to run under sound pressure.
What makes this work specially is the place called Montreille. The official language of Quebec is French, and the MC who tells the story also speaks in French. Since Phil Collins has become a front, many sound sources of foreign languages ​​are left, but the sound board of Gabriel era is almost in English. Especially since it is only the Montreal performance of this work on overseas performance with the top 3 of the above “B”, the Official-grade live album which moves fullshow with French MC is only this work.

Gabriel era GENESIS precious sound board · live playing plenty of only the historical famous song “3” Daimyo “NURSERY CRYME” “FOXTROT” “SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND”. This is not a famous GENESIS one-band name board, it is one of the vertices of the music genre “progressive rock”. One that will be a cultural heritage that raised its vertex with a good guy. On the verge of entering Broadway ‘s biggest story, GENESIS’ s greatest masterpiece, shining most as a rock band. Please, please enjoy at anytime forever with the permanent preservation press 2CD.

全世界にフォロワーを生み出したピーター・ガブリエル時代のGENESIS。その最高傑作となる超名作サウンドボード・アルバムが2ndプレス盤で登場です。その最高峰とは、「1974年4月21日モントリオール公演」の超極上サウンドボード録音。そう、約3年前に登場して衝撃を振りまいた『DEFINITIVE MONTREAL 1974』です。
1974年のモントリオールと言えば、定番中の大定番。ガブリエル時代でもっとも有名な放送音源として知られ、アナログ時代から幾多のタイトルを生み続けてきたもの。10年ほどの前にもノーカット盤『DIGESTING ENGLAND』が決定盤として一世を風靡しましたが、本作はそのリマスターではありません。近年になって登場したさらなるアップグレード・マスターなのです。


以上の3タイプに分けられます。このうち「A」は細切れのBBCセッションが数曲残っている程度なので除外するとして「B」は黄金の5人が揃ってから“SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND TOUR”までの通常コンサート、「C」はストーリー・アルバムの完全再現ショウです。「C」はいくつかのサウンドボードが残っていますが、そちらはアルバム再現がメインであり、他にはアンコールに1・2曲くらい。それはそれで素晴らしいものの、ガブリエル時代のめくるめく名曲群をたっぷりと味わうには、やはり“ブロードウェイ以前”となる「B」こそが肝心なのです。
ところが、「B」のサウンドボードとなると極端に少なく、長さ・質の双方を満たすものといったら、ほぼ3本に絞られる。公式制作でもある『LIVE : TEST PRESSING 2LP』の1973年レスター公演、ボックス『GENESIS LIVE 1973–2007』でオフィシャル化された1973年レインボー・シアター公演、そして本作の1974年モントリオール公演。つまり、本作はオフィシャル絡みの2本と並び称される“ベスト3”のうちの1本なのです。しかも、その中でも本作は本命中の大本命。当時のGENESISは人気も実力も上り調子。アルバム『SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND』でも演奏陣の実力が飛躍的にアップしたのが印象的でしたが、彼らは日に日に上達していく時期にあり、後になればなるほどほど熟達したライヴを聴かせてくれる。本作のモントリオール公演は頂点サウンドボード3本の中で最も後期にあたり、一番美味しい演奏が詰まりに詰まったライヴ盤なのです。
そんなベストライヴの頂点マスターたる本作は、まさに究極の1本。既発『DIGESTING ENGLAND』よりも20秒も長く、ラジオDJの声もしっかりと入ったイントロからして新マスターなのは明らか。しかし、それ以上に重要なのは全編を貫くサウンド。ナチュラルで豊かな鳴りが素晴らしく、完璧としか思えなかった『DIGESTING ENGLAND』でさえ、本作の後に聴くと詰まったようなサウンドをイコライジングで人工的に仕上げたかのような不自然さが気になってしまう。まさしくパーフェクトなオフィシャル級……いえ、音圧稼ぎに走りがちなオフィシャルを超えてしまうサウンドなのです。

ガブリエル時代GENESISでも、3大名盤『NURSERY CRYME』『FOXTROT』『SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND』の歴史的名曲“だけ”をたっぷりと演奏する貴重サウンドボード・ライヴ。これはもうGENESISという1バンドの名盤ではなく、音楽ジャンル“プログレッシヴ・ロック”の1つの頂点です。その頂点をグイッと引き上げてしまった文化遺産となる1本。ブロードウェイの一大物語に突入する寸前、ロックバンドとしてもっとも輝いていたGENESISの最高傑作。どうぞ、永久保存プレス2CDで、いつでもいつまでもお楽しみください。

Main press 2CD “DEFINITIVE MONTREAL 1974” is a masterpiece that you can listen to the best selection songs from Peter Gabriel era on the Official-grade soundboard. It is absolutely inevitable one to those who missed the 1st press. For such 2nd press, bonus will be attached as well as original edition video footage of Montreal performance.
Such a work is the same show as the press 2CD of the main volume … If it says whether it is somewhat different. Actually, the Montreal performance was held for two consecutive days at the same “Universal Sports Center” at “April 20” and “April 21”. Among them, the broadcast of the radio “CHOM – FM” which became the main press 2CD is “April 21”, but the picture is left on the previous day “April 20”. This work is a video work that covered FM voice of “April 21” in the picture of that “April 20”.
This video was produced by overseas GENESIS mania. The picture is the film at the time, but vivid coloring, noise free screen is the best preserved state. Moreover, it has skillfully assembled a plurality of camera images, and it is immersed for 72 minutes with the quality which can be seen as almost a pro shot. However, since it is a continuous live performance at the same venue, not all the stitches can be completely synchronized, but there is rare picking with no sound, parts with no image (primarily inter-track space) are stationary It may become an image. However, the degree of synchronization of a part with video is not Hanpa. From Tony Banks ‘fingertips, Phil Collins’ stick, and Fabric MC ‘s mouth to Gabriel’ s mouth, it is really fitting with this image. Even if it is a still picture, it grasps the performance content firmly. For example, if Gabriel is missing the video of the scene playing the flute, use a number of flute’s performance photos, or create a movement of fantasy by zooming and sliding. It enters the fine, goes into the fine, and it is the perfection degree that it is transmitted by the visibish that it is assembled with full power.
And the magnificent view of the big classic Montréal performance which is unfolded with its quality is amazing. Even though the sound alone is the best fantasy, it is perfectly up to the MC scene that tells the story of numerous Gabriel’s costumes and actions, even lyrics. For example, although the story of Romeo & Juliet is familiar with voice before “Cinema Show”, it is hard to see in professional shots etc of TV images. However, in this work, I can barely see Gabriel’s behavior behind its humorous tone. In addition, Phil Collins which inserts up to the screen image which expresses the lyrics world and makes the cymbal beat the monkey dolls, and also contains a rare rare “More Fool Me” that he sings. Almost everything is full of masterpiece scenes.

In addition to the main press 2CD which updated the highest quality in the history of the large classic live, plus the book of the historic masterpiece movie, it is a gorgeous live set that can fully taste “1974 Montreal”. Both the main album live album and the film’s original work are not only prospective rock’s monologues but also super-masterpiece sets that mutually enhance each other by matching. Please, please enjoy plenty of the dazzling world of

本編プレス2CD『DEFINITIVE MONTREAL 1974』は、ピーター・ガブリエル時代のベスト選曲ライヴをオフィシャル級サウンドボードで聴ける大傑作。1stプレスを逃された方には絶対不可避の1本です。そんな2ndプレスには、オリジナル・リリースと同じくモントリオール公演の映像編がボーナス付属致します。
そして、そのクオリティで繰り広げられる大定番モントリオール公演の光景は驚異。サウンドだけでも最高の幻想感なのに、数々のガブリエルの衣装やアクション、さらには歌詞の物語を語るMCシーンまでばっちり。例えば、「Cinema Show」の前にロミオ&ジュリエットの物語は音声でこそお馴染みなものの、テレビ映像のプロショット等ではなかなか見られない。しかし、本作では、そのユーモラスな口調の向こうにいるガブリエルの立ち振る舞いまで目に焼き付けることができるのです。さらにさらに、歌詞世界を表現したスクリーン映像まで挿入され、猿の人形にシンバルを叩かせるフィル・コリンズ、そんな彼が歌う激レアな「More Fool Me」も収録。もう、何から何まで大傑作シーンだらけなのです。
