「DEFINITIVE OSAKA 2005」のリリースを記念して、2000年代中期のジェフ・ベックの名音源を再リリース致します。2005年はロンドンRAHでの単発公演を除けば、日本以外はライヴ・ツアーは行わかったジェフ・ベックでしたが、2006年は4月の西海岸、7月のヨーロッパ・日本、9月の全米と精力的なライヴ活動を展開し、ファンを大いに喜ばせてくれました。本盤は、2006年9月6日から10月1日まで、全20公演が行われた北米ツアーより、特に高音質ということで、リリース当時、ファンの間で大きな話題を呼んだ2作品を、カップリングリリースしたものです。


ディスク1にはツアー7日目、9月13日、ハンプトン・ビーチ・カジノ・ボールルーム公演を超高音質オーディエンス録音で完全収録。Trialレーベルから「A CHANGE IS GONNA COME」と言うタイトルでリリースされていたもので、リリース当時のbeatlegレビューでも(vol.78)「音質最高のオーディエンス録音で、各楽器の音がバランスよく録れている」と大絶賛されています。べスは5曲でボーカルを披露。サム・クックのスタンダードナンバーA Change Is Gonna Comeのカバーがセットインしており、この曲でのベスのソウルフルなボーカルは実に素晴らしく必聴パートになっています。Going Downの後半にGot The Feelingがインクルードされるアレンジはこの日からとのこと。まさに埋もれた名音源。本来ならプレスCDの出し直しリリースが相応しい程の傑作マスターです。

ディスク2にはツアー終盤の9月24日、オークランドはパラマウント・シアター公演を超高音質オーディエンス録音で完全収録。Uxbridge初期カタログとして「OAKLAND 2006」と言うタイトルでリリースされていたもので、リリース当時のbeatlegレビューでも(vol.102)「不完全収録の既発盤とは別マスター。ノーカットの完全版でしかも音質が良い。音のバランスが非常に素晴らしく、キーボードの音がステレオで左右に流れるその中央でドラムとギターが暴れ回っているような印象だ」とこれまた大絶賛されています。そのレビューの通り、この公演には既発盤が存在していましたが、それにはオープニングのBeck’s Boleroが曲後半からの収録で、加えてTwo Riverの後半およびStar Cycleの前半にもカットがありましたが、本盤はそれとは別マスター。音質も良いうえに既発の欠落部分も完璧に収録されているので、間違いなくこの公演の決定版と言えます。各楽器のバランスも良く、音の粒立ちも最高レベルで、これもまた本来ならプレスCDの出し直しリリースが相応しい程の傑作マスターです。Scatterbrainのイントロでジェフがカントリー風の即興演奏を披露しており、ヴィニーがそれに合わせてアクセントを入れ上手くオープニングに繋げる辺りのスリリングな展開は必聴パートです。また、この日はDiamond Dust、A Day In The Lifeといった秋のUSツアーの前半ではプレイされなかったナンバーが組み込まれているのにも注目。(ディスク1&2のハンプトン公演には未収)見事なギター・コントロールが聴けるこの日のSomewhere Over The Rainbowはマニア間でも評価が高いのでファンは必聴です。ツアーを重ねることで内容も円熟の域に達しており、ボーカルナンバーも含め、最高の演奏を聴くことができます。

両公演ともに、内容・音質、これ以上はない程に素晴らしく、ツアーから8年が経過した今でも、ファンは間違いなく必聴の最優秀・超高音質音源タイトルと言えるでしょう。2005年のジェフの最良のステージを捉えた「DEFINITIVE OSAKA 2005」同様に、2006年北米ツアーからのベスト・セレクション音源2種を豪華カップリングした本作は、間違いなくファン必携です!
