Ultra super fine rare track collection of the Golden Age is appearing in press 2CD. This work covers from “HEART” in 1985 to “DESIRE WALKS ON” era. It is a treasure that was not recorded in the original album, while being recorded at the heyday. Of course, the former is an official track, so quality is completely official. It also features carefully selected trucks of the rare rare board in mint state and beyond (it will be described later). It is not just an unusual collector’s item but it is one of the highest peaks in history, which is more than enough for listening in line with the official original album.
Let’s introduce the shining treasure in detail. I would be pleased if you read back while listening.

【1985 “HEART” era】
First of all, it is 15 tracks of a rare take of a song “HEART” that has become a breakthrough. As roughly divided ……
· Long / remix · version (4 songs · 6 take)
· Original · Version (2 songs)
· Songs not included in the album (1 song)
· Demo track (3 songs)
· Live · Take (3 songs)
Among them, attention is 3 These Takes “These Dreams”. It is a take only of 12 inches · etched single for British, not to mention CD. Besides, this single is not just a thing. It is a silo monochrome that scratches and noises occur frequently even with an unsealed board in the shipping state because the surface with grooves is in contact with the mount. In this work, collect a number of core and collector treasures and remastore the best one among them. We recorded “Best Take only for this work” which removes scratch / noise as much as possible. This is the “truck over the official” I mentioned at the beginning.
Also, the “original version” also points. It is two songs “Never” and “Nothin ‘At All”, but after the single sale, it is replaced with a remix version in the album. In the recurrence board after that, it remained unchanged as a remix version, and it has reached the present. In this work, the original version which became valuable conversely is recorded from the circumstances.

【1987 “BAD ANIMALS” era】
· Another version (2 songs)
· Remix · Version (2 tracks / 4 tracks)
Long versions and remixes that were recorded only for single ones. It was troublesome to collect small trucks, but you can do a single stroke in this work.

【1989 – 1990 “BRIGADE” era】
· Single with ANN & NANCY WILSON (1 song)
· Demo · Track (1 song)
· Songs not included in album (3 songs)
· Live · Take (1 song)
“Here Is Christmas” in the name of ANN & NANCY WILSON is an instrument version with only single, “I Do not Wanna Lose Tonight” is a demonstration track. Like the demo in the “HEART” era above, this demo is an unreleased song that has not been released at all. The songs that are not included in the album are three songs “Cruel Tears”, “Never Stop Loving You”, “The Will To Love”.

【1993 – 1994 “DESIRE WALKS ON” era】
· Remix · Version (1 song)
· Demo track (2 songs)
· Songs not included in the album (1 song)
· Live · Take (3 songs)
The main feature here is “Demo · Take (2 songs)”. Both are rare tracks of the official box ‘STRANGE EUPHORIA’. First, “Desire Walks On” was a demo called “Beach Demo Corrected Version” which was supposed to be originally recorded in the box. However, since the album version was mistakenly recorded in the official box, I recorded the original rare version in this work.
In addition, “What Is And What Should Never Be” is a rare rare track recorded only in “ZEPPISH” which was attached to the first volume limited store of “STRANGE EUPHORIA”. John Paul Jones of ZEP is participating demo track.

More than 33 tracks of hidden treasures. Unreleased songs that you hear for the first time, live performances that were difficult to collect, and remixes that supernexant fascinates another face … …. It is a two-sheet set condensed with all the existing highest version. Everything is filled with the glitter of HEART at its heyday, yet only fresh treasure. Please, please enjoy plenty.

黄金時代の超・極上レアトラック集がプレス2CDで登場です。本作がカバーしているのは、1985年の『HEART』から『DESIRE WALKS ON』時代まで。まさに全盛期に記録されながら、オリジナル・アルバムには収録されなかった秘宝たちなのです。もちろん、元は公式トラックですから、クオリティは完全オフィシャル級。それもミント状態の激レア盤やそれ以上(後述します)のトラックも厳選収録。単に珍しいコレクターズ・アイテムではなく、公式オリジナル・アルバムと並べて聴いても十二分に楽しい史上最高峰の1本です。

この中でも注目なのが3テイクある「These Dreams」。未CD化なのはもちろん、イギリス限定の12インチ・エッチド・シングルのみのテイクです。しかも、このシングルがただ物ではない。溝のある面が台紙と接触したパッケージになっており、出荷状態の未開封盤ですら傷が多くスクラッチ・ノイズが多発するというシロモノなのです。本作では、コア・コレクターの秘蔵品をいくつも集め、その中からベストなものを更にリマスター。可能な限りスクラッチ・ノイズを除去した“本作だけの最良テイク”を収録しました。これが冒頭でお話しした「公式以上のトラック」なのです。
また、「オリジナル・バージョン」もポイント。「Never」と「Nothin’ At All」の2曲なのですが、シングル発売以降はアルバムでもリミックス・バージョンに差し替え。その後の再発盤でもリミックス版のまま統一され、現在に至っています。本作では、その経緯から逆に貴重となってしまったオリジナル・バージョンを収録しているのです。

【1987年『BAD ANIMALS』時代】

・ANN & NANCY WILSON名義のシングル(1曲)
ANN & NANCY WILSON名義の「Here Is Christmas」は、シングルだけのインスト・バージョン、「I Don’t Wanna Lose Tonight」はデモ・トラックです。このデモは上記『HEART』時代のデモと同じく、これまで一切発売されなかった未発表曲。アルバム未収録曲は「Cruel Tears」「Never Stop Loving You」「The Will To Love」の3曲です。

【1993年-1994年『DESIRE WALKS ON』時代】
ここでの目玉は、ズバリ「デモ・テイク(2曲)」。どちらも公式ボックス『STRANGE EUPHORIA』絡みのレアトラックです。まず、「Desire Walks On」は、“Beach Demo Corrected Version”と呼ばれるデモで本来ボックスに収録されるはずだったもの。しかし、公式ボックスでは間違ってアルバム・ヴァージョンが収録されてしまったので、本作に本来のレア・バージョンを収録しました。
さらに「What Is And What Should Never Be」は『STRANGE EUPHORIA』の量販店初回限定盤に付属していた『ZEPPISH』にのみに収録された激レアトラック。ZEPのジョン・ポール・ジョーンズが参加しているデモ・トラックです。

Another version of super masterpieces and live, unreleased songs and secret demo etc … …. This volume press 2CD is a hidden treasure with the highest quality rare tail which is overlooked from the official. What is missing in such a treasure box board …… Yes, picture. So we prepared a representative pro shot of the golden age for the bonus.
It is contained in this work “Mountain View Performance August 19, 1990”. It is a multi camera camera shot representative of “BRIGADE TOUR 1990”. First of all, let’s imagine the position of the show from the tour schedule of the time.

“March 26” BRIGADE “Release”
· April 25 – May 13: Europe (11 shows)
· June 8 – July 23: North America # 1 (33 performances)
· August 7 – September 14: North America # 2 (27 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
· October 5 – 15: Japan (4 shows)
· November 9 – December 16: North America # 3 (24 performances)

This is the big picture of “BRIGADE TOUR 1990”. I can not conclude because there are obscure points in the record at that time, but I think I can grasp the approximate outline. The mountain-view performance of this work is a concert that is the ninth performance of “North America # 2”. It was about 1 month before the performance in Japan. This show was recorded with multiple cameras and broadcast on television. This work is a gem that made its best master DVD.
In such a work, it is HEART of the great heyday that was shining on the gorgeous route. From the opening to the multi-platinum era “HEART” “BAD ANIMALS” “BRIGADE” big hit songs crawl into the cascade. It is exactly “culmination of gorgeous times”, but it is not just a gray test hit. Anyhow, the new work “BRIGADE” of the time is overwhelming, and how many of 9 songs out of 12 songs of the album are large-scale behaviors. It is not an otakuro and a shaw looking back at the past, but it is also transmitted from the set that it is full of shine that stirs now.
Of course the classic number from the ’70s is also wonderful! “Straight On”, “Love Alive”, “Crazy On You” and “Barracuda” are only 4 songs, but they are reviving with gorgeous eras and hard sounds. That performance is dazzling again. Ann Wilson ‘s masculine powerful and singing singer, the guitar which kept the key points of Nancy Wilson keeled out, and it is full of momentum of the great heyday. Another guitarist Howard Lease, WHITESNAKE also known Denny Kamashi & Mark Andean ‘s rhythm is also great powerful. Not to mention Ann and Nancy ‘s members’ looks, gleaming lighting, thoroughly professional playing … … everything is shining. Even a long career is definitely highlighted, “It was around that time” is being projected.

HEART who swept across the country and has been playing multiple platinums. From this “BRIGADE TOUR 1990”, there is also an official live performance of Wooster Performance “ROCK THE HOUSE LIVE!”, But even for official works it does not fight for full recording pro shots. One hour 43 minutes that I can see and feel the “glow of the time” with eyes. A masterpiece picture that can draw ideally the brilliant HEART. Please enjoy plenty with this press 2CD!
本作に収められているのは「1990年8月19日マウンテン・ビュー公演」。“BRIGADE TOUR 1990”を代表するマルチカメラ・プロショットです。まずは、当時のツアー・スケジュールからショウのポジションをイメージしてみましょう。


これが“BRIGADE TOUR 1990”の全体像。当時の記録にあやふやな点もあるので断定はできませんが、おおよその概要は掴めると思います。本作のマウンテン・ビュー公演は「北米#2」の9公演目にあたるコンサート。日本公演の約1ヶ月前というタイミングでした。このショウはマルチカメラで収録され、テレビでも放送。本作は、そのベストマスターをDVD化した逸品なのです。
そんな本作で映し出されるのは、ゴージャス路線に輝いていた大全盛期のHEART。オープニングからマルチプラチナム時代『HEART』『BAD ANIMALS』『BRIGADE』の大ヒット曲が一気呵成に押し寄せる。まさに“ゴージャス時代の集大成”なわけですが、単なるグレイテスト・ヒッツでもない。何しろ、当時の新作『BRIGADE』が圧倒的で、なんとアルバム全12曲中9曲もの大盤振る舞い。決して過去を振り返る懐メロ・ショウではなく、今をときめく輝きに満ちているのがセットからも伝わってくるのです。
もちろん’70年代からのクラシックナンバーも素晴らしい! 「Straight On」や「Love Alive」「Crazy On You」「Barracuda」とわずか4曲ではありますが、ゴージャス時代らしいエッジとハードなサウンドで蘇っている。そのパフォーマンスぶりがまた眩しい。アン・ウィルソンの男勝りなパワフルで伸びやかな歌唱、ナンシー・ウィルソンの要所を押さえたギターはキレにキレ、大全盛期の勢いに溢れる。もう一人のギタリストであるハワード・リース、WHITESNAKEでも知られるデニー・カーマッシ&マーク・アンデスのリズムもえらくパワフル。アンやナンシーらメンバーのルックスはもちろんのこと、煌びやかなライティング、徹底的にプロフェッショナルな演奏……すべてが輝いている。長いキャリアでも間違いなくハイライトとなった“あの頃”を映しだしているのです。

全米を席巻し、マルチプラチナムを連発していたHEART。この“BRIGADE TOUR 1990”からは、ウースター公演の公式ライヴ盤『ROCK THE HOUSE LIVE!』もありますが、いかな公式作品でもフル収録プロショットには敵わない。“当時の輝き”を目で見、実感できる1時間43分。華麗なるHEARTを理想的に描ききる大傑作映像。本編プレス2CDと共にたっぷりとお楽しみください!
