GUNS N ‘ROSES’ … … No, Rock The best masterpiece has arrived again. That “the strongest and the best masterpiece” is a traditional super-masterpiece Proshot containing “1988 February 2nd New York” performance. It is a super upgrade board which updated the highest peak quality of the big classic image “Club · Ritz” ever.
This work appeared two years ago and it was sold out shortly. “Second edition” also arrived, this is also sold out immediately. After that, although the regular release was announced from the official, for some reason it was torn down. Voices calling for vertex pictures that still do not exceed have come constantly, and thus the “third edition” came into appearance (contents are completely identical because of the apex). How funny this “Ritz performance” is, and how the book is at the top. Let’s explain.

【Super high quality exceeding the peak】
This live is repeatedly broadcasted on television and radio, and as it has produced a number of unexpected titles, there will be many people who have seen it. However! This work is different from the upgrade from Sakeji. It is recorded from the VHS for promotion to the DVD, and from the broadcast master LP of Westwood One ‘s “SUPERSTAR CONCERT” on the CD. That is, both DVD and CD are “before broadcasting”. Far more than air checking, there is absolutely no deterioration, it is literally “two or more presses of super quality” that can not be more than this!
Indeed, even with the already-released title which was surprised as “the image quality is good!” Without the MTV broadcasting logo in the video, after watching this work, the screen blur is worrisome and I feel like playing again Not so. Only the Promo VHS had “Mama Kin” missing, so only the best ones were selected carefully and recorded only there. Although there was something that the order of the songs is out of order in the conventional board, this work is faithful to the day of the live. Likewise, the quality of the CD is completely perfect. Because it is raising from the radio show / disc, not the picture drop, it is the optimum mix for audio. On top of that, he gave a polite full power remaster, and he was undoubtedly the best ever. No, I will finally make it the best sound that will never go beyond the future.

[Original of GUNS original that turned the earth up] It does not say “video / sound is ultra-quality only” the ultimate one “. The live that is contained is the ultimate. Because it is a raw version of APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION, an iconic version of the age in which it is unnecessary to call “name board” or the like anymore. Not only 9 songs in 12 albums are showing, but still “GN’R LIES” is not yet released, just as GUNS N ‘ROSES, which has just created “APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION”, is rampant.
The latter live entering a lot of guests and scattering the monster for the first time is also amazing, but the one that is enclosed here is a sudden lock that wobbles with only “that five people”. The momentum that gets scattered every live item of every band is its spirit as it is its freshness. Why did GUNS N ‘ROSES even become a social phenomenon, and why were they only special? Right now, I can only think of it as a dream, that bustle is in front of my eyes. If you look at the picture you will be touched by the crispy movements of youthful Axel Rose, listening to the CD will make the heart of the body hotter than the beat that is too wild and a bold Les Paul Sound burns her heart. Fu, I was in trouble. Even if we do a thousand words, I am not confident of talking about this “phenomenon” ….
As long as the long history has proven, this is exactly “the strongest rock” and “the ultimate live”. CDs and DVDs are just dishes filled with some images and sounds. However, what jumps out of this work that should be a dish is the “phenomenon” that changed the history of the world. Whether it is a powerful unrivaled “APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION”, only that one did not become a “phenomenon”. GUNS N ‘ROSES has repainted everything as it appeared. It is a press two-piece set packed with the identity of that “phenomenon” with perfect quality. Nobody can ignore this work!

★ Overwhelming quality that surpasses all previous episodes. Ultimate title that can assert as being special in every sense. In response to the request, 3rd press board is released urgently. All the boards and jackets were renewed, Collector necessities.

GUNS N’ ROSESの……いや、ロック最強にして最高傑作が再び入荷いたしました。その“最強・最高傑作”とは、「1988年2月2日ニューヨーク公演」を収めた伝統の超・名作プロショット。大定番映像“クラブ・リッツ”の史上最高峰クオリティを更新した超アップグレード盤です。

このライヴはテレビやラジオで繰り返し放送され、数限りない既発タイトルを生み出してきただけに、ご覧になった方もさぞや多いことでしょう。しかし! 本作はそんじょそこらのアップグレードとはワケが違います。DVDにはプロモーション用VHSから、CDにはWestwood Oneの“SUPERSTAR CONCERT”の放送原盤LPから収録しているのです。つまり、DVDもCDも“放送前”。エアチェックどころか劣化も一切なく、文字通り“これ以上はあり得ない”スーパー・クオリティのプレス2枚組みなのです!
実際、映像にはMTVの放送ロゴもなく、かつて“すげぇ画質だ!”と驚いていた既発タイトルでさえ、本作を観た後では画面ボケが気になって二度と再生する気になれないほどです。唯一、プロモVHSには「Mama Kin」が抜けていましたので、そこのみ既発の中からベストなものを厳選して収録しました。従来盤には曲順が狂っているものもありましたが、本作こそがライヴ当日に忠実な内容です。同様に、CDのクオリティもまったくパーフェクト。映像落しではなく、ラジオショウ・ディスクから起こしていますので、オーディオに最適なミックス。その上に丁寧な全力リマスターを施し、間違いなく過去最高。いや、これからも未来永劫、超えようがないベスト・サウンドに仕上げました。

映像/サウンドがウルトラ・クオリティなだけでは“究極の1本”とは言いません。収められたライヴこそが究極なのです。もはや「名盤」などと称するのも気が引けるほどの時代の象徴盤『APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION』、その生バージョンなのですから。アルバム12曲中9曲が披露されるだけでなく、まだ「GN’R LIES」すらリリースされず、まさに『APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION』を創り上げたままのGUNS N’ ROSESが暴れているのです。
ゲストを大量に投入してモンスターぶりを撒き散らす後年のライヴも凄いのですが、ここに封入されているのは“あの5人”だけでぶちかます激ロック。その生々しさたるや、あらゆるバンドのあらゆるライヴ・アイテムを蹴散らしてしまう勢いが噴き出してくるのです。なぜGUNS N’ ROSESは社会現象にさえなったのか、なぜ彼らだけが特別だったのか。今、思い起こしても夢のようにしか思えない、あの喧騒が目の前にあるのです。映像を見れば若々しいアクセル・ローズのキレッキレな動きに目を奪われ、CDで聴けばワイルド極まりないビートに身体の芯が熱くなり、図太いレスポール・サウンドが胸を焦がす。ふぅ、困った。千の言葉を尽くしても、この“現象”を語る自信がない……。
もう長い歴史が証明している通り、まったくもってこれこそが“最強のロック”“究極のライヴ”ってやつなのです。CDやDVDなんて、いくばくかの映像と音声が詰まっただけの皿に過ぎません。ところが、皿であるはずの本作から飛び出してくるのは、世界を、歴史を変えた“現象”なのです。いかな強力無比な『APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION』であろうと、あの1枚だけでは“現象”にはならなかった。登場と共にすべてを塗り替えてしまったGUNS N’ ROSES。あの“現象”の正体を、パーフェクト・クオリティで余すことなく詰め込んだプレス2枚組です。何人たりとも、本作を無視することはできない!

As the vertex image of the monster band, the strongest pro shot & stereo sound board in the history of rock “RITZ 1988 DEFINITIVE EDITION”. In the original release and the second edition, I made a live album of another broadcast version as a bonus, but this time it is a special project. We will present you a compilation of original shoots of GUNS ‘5 shocks pro shot.
The point of this work appeared on TV. The pro shot of “APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION TOUR” is famous for Philadelphia performances and long-length images of Melbourne performances besides the main press press DVD, but there are many short pictures of TV appearances as well. This work features four high quality 4 programs (+ interview) among them. Let’s introduce one by one.

【March 31, 1988: THE LATE SHOW】
First of all, there are two FOX TV songs. “You’re Crazy” “Used To Love Her” in a pseudo concert style where audiences were put in the broadcast station studio. Suddenly at the opening “You’re Crazy” you may think that “DVD was broken!?” In the movie that was made chubby, but relief. Of course, this is the station’s side effect processing. Although it is a method that was common in the 1980s, when you look with the present eyes strangely cheaply “I think that it is extra … ….” “You’re Crazy” is a normal finish, but unlike real stage, it seems to be cramped. The accelerator who gets lost in the camera’s eyes is a professional shot which is an original.

【September 7, 1988: MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS】
Next, performance at MTV Music Awards ceremony ceremony. After all, the stage is different from shining. It is a wonderful thing that “songs of” Welcome To The Jungle “is disappointing as it is caught by” dynamic as usual “MTV’s dynamic camera work.
However, the audience here is not always a fan of GUNS N ‘ROSES. A yellow crown jumps over the sound, but in the video, I stare at the stage with a jitter without mentioning one of the arms. The audience and Axel ‘s performance, the yellow strange gap is terrible today. Axel leaving the stage leaving the microphone as if it was last messed up …. It is a professional tastefully professional shot.

【January 30, 1989: AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS】
Next, rare picture. It’s “Patience” at the American Music Awards. In October 1989, “APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION TOUR” was finished, I played in the public for the first time in a long time, but at this time Steven Adler was absent due to treatment of drug addiction. The long-haired man sitting on the stool in his place is Don Henry of EAGLES. If the members are unusual, the atmosphere is also rare. As if as a piano recital, the bad boys of the contemporary play gently “Patience” …. It is a wonderful picture that can not be tasted elsewhere.

Lastly, MTV’s famous program “MTV ROCKUMENTARY” is recorded altogether. A documentary that was intensely smelled at the time when it was shaken by the phenomenon board “APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION”, plenty of interviews of members along with live shots. After this, the original lineup will collapse with enormous size, but the sense of that era will be drawn with numerous images.

Regardless of official / informal, the main press press “RITZ 1988 DEFINITIVE EDITION” which is one of the strongest locks. What sort of super-masterpiece was born and what kind of smell breathed in? It is one piece that emphasizes it from numerous TV programs. A masterpiece bonus swallowing the whole era with supernumeric board. Please, please enjoy plenty.

怪物バンドの頂点映像にして、ロック史上最強のプロショット&ステレオ・サウンドボード『RITZ 1988 DEFINITIVE EDITION』。オリジナル・リリースやセカンド・エディションでは別放送バージョンのライヴアルバムをボーナスに致しましたが、今回は特別企画。オリジナルGUNSの5人時代のプロショット集めたコンピレーションをお贈りします。
本作のポイントはテレビ出演。“APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION TOUR”のプロショットと言うと、本編プレスDVDの他にフィラデルフィア公演やメルボルン公演の長尺映像が有名ですが、それだけでなくテレビ出演の短い映像も多数あります。本作は、その中でもクオリティの高い4番組4曲(+インタビュー)を特集したものなのです。それでは、1つずつご紹介しましょう。

【1988年3月31日:THE LATE SHOW】
まず登場するのは、FOX TVの2曲。放送局スタジオに観客を入れた疑似コンサート・スタイルの「You’re Crazy」「Used To Love Her」です。いきなり冒頭の「You’re Crazy」でカクカクとした映像に「DVDが壊れた!?」と思われるかも知れませんが、ご安心を。もちろん、これは局側の演出処理。80年代にはよくあった手法ではありますが、今の目で観ると妙に安っぽく「余計なことを……」と思ってしまいます。「You’re Crazy」はノーマルな仕上がりですが、やはり本物ステージとは違って窮屈そう。カメラ目線に迷うアクセルが初々しいプロショットです。

続いては、MTVミュージック・アワード授賞式でのパフォーマンス。ステージだとやはり輝きが違う。“いつも通り”の熱演をMTVらしいダイナミックなカメラワークで捉えきっており、「Welcome To The Jungle」1曲なのが残念になってしまう素晴らしさ。
ただし、ここでも観客はGUNS N’ ROSESのファンとは限らない。音声には黄色い嬌声が飛びまくるのですが、映像では腕の1本も挙げずにジッとステージを凝視している。その観客とアクセルの熱演、黄色い今日がなんとも不思議なギャップが凄い。最後にムカついたようにマイクを放ってステージを去るアクセル……。なんとも味わい深いプロショットです。

続いては、レア映像。アメリカン・ミュージック・アワードでの「Patience」です。1989年10月には“APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION TOUR”が終了しており、久しぶりに公の場で演奏したわけですが、この時スティーヴン・アドラーはドラッグ中毒の治療のために欠席。代わってスツールに座っている長髪の男は、EAGLESのドン・ヘンリーなのです。メンバーも珍しければ、雰囲気も珍しい。まるでピアノの発表会でもやりそうなステージで、そこに当代きってのバッドボーイズが穏やかに「Patience」を演奏する……。何とも不思議で他では味わえない映像です。

最後は、MTVの名物番組“MTV ROCKUMENTARY”を丸ごと収録。現象盤『APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION』で揺さぶられていた当時が強烈に匂ってくるドキュメンタリーで、ライヴショットと共にメンバーのインタビューもたっぷりと収録。この後、巨大化と共にオリジナル・ラインナップも崩れていくわけですが、その時代感覚が数々の映像と共に描かれていきます。

公式/非公式関係なく、ロック最強の1本である本編プレス『RITZ 1988 DEFINITIVE EDITION』。その超傑作は、どんな時代に生まれ、どんな匂いの中で呼吸していたのか。それを数々のテレビ番組から浮き立たせる1枚です。超名盤と共に、時代を丸ごと飲み込む傑作ボーナス。どうぞ、併せてたっぷりとご堪能ください。
