Unfortunately, but voice was usually release shelved in order to not extend to was the sound board-class “NEWCASTLE 2016”, is the video beauty more than makes up for it.
“2016 Graham” to be drawn in such a quality is, luxurious than the Japan tour was opening act. Ahead of the “Eyes Of The World” led, “Only One Woman”, “Dancer” of MSG, “Island In The Sun” of ALCATRAZZ “Will You Be Home Tonight,” “The Witchwood” of THE MARBLES, “LINE- such as “SOS” in the UP “, it makes me plenty hear the group of masterpieces that did not listen in the Japan tour.

In June we refrain again historical co-starred with Michael Schenker, but just one step away from it. Now, while admiring the warm full of this work, or do not we wait and relax.

今年6月の“SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL”で、再びマイケル・シェンカーとの共演を発表したグラハム・ボネット。そんな彼の最新ショットがギフト・タイトルで登場です。
昨年、奇跡の来日公演の後にオフを取っていたグラハムですが、2016年1月末にライヴ活動を再開。2月半ばまで13公演の英国ツアーを実施しました。このミニツアーからは5公演目を収めたライヴアルバム『NEWCASTLE 2016(Shades 622)』も好評を頂いておりますが、本作が撮影されたのは2公演目の「2016年2月3日スケッグネス公演」。撮影者は、なんとあの“Crazy S.氏”です。伝説的な名録音の数々を残してきた世界的テーパーが、まさか映像まで……。
そのクオリティは、さすがの名テーパー。最初はピンぼけ風ですが、「Eyes Of The World」のイントロでグラハムが登場するやビシッと引き締まる。アングルはベスアミ・ヘヴンストーン側ながら、メンバー4人をキッチリと収める好ショット。4人を収めきるとは言え、狭いクラブ規模なので距離感はなし。画質も素晴らしく、コンラード・ペシナードのギター弦からドラムキットの金属光沢、ベスアミの胸の谷間まで超くっきりに映しだしているのです。残念ながら音声はサウンドボード級だった『NEWCASTLE 2016』には及ばないために通常リリースは見送られましたが、それを補って余りある映像美なのです。
そんなクオリティで描かれる“2016年のグラハム”は、前座だった来日公演よりも豪華。先の「Eyes Of The World」を筆頭に、THE MARBLESの「Only One Woman」、M.S.G.の「Dancer」、ALCATRAZZの「Island In The Sun」「Will You Be Home Tonight」「The Witchwood」、『LINE-UP』の「S.O.S.」など、日本公演では聴けなかった名曲群をたっぷり聴かせてくれます。
そして、そんな豪華セットを歌うグラハムは、いつになくリラックスして楽しそう。なにしろ、スケッグネスはグラハムの生まれ故郷ですし、曲間に聞こえる歓声もやたらとアットホーム。「Dancer」で大ボケをかましますが、それも笑い飛ばす気楽さで、大洋を越えて観ているこちらまで微笑んでしまうほど暖かい。グラハムがMCで「49年前にもここでギグをやったよ」と語りますが、もしそれが本当なら1967年。グラハムが20歳のときで、従兄弟とBONAR LAWを結成した前後のこと。まさにルーツに戻って、文字通りのホームグラウンドでのライヴなのです。
