Heyday in the heyday, “DESTROYER TOUR 1976” This is a sound board appearance of album! And say the sound board of this tour, but there is a “ANAHEIM 1976” in Anaheim performances August 20, super sound to be thin to that name board. This is just one of startle!
And There are many to sound board, direct system such as I think this work is whether desk directly. Its ultra-high sound quality the first time is, “Alright, Toronto !!” that jump out as soon as you press the play button has exploded from roar of (note the VOLUME!). Cheers to respond to the screaming far away, and as if playing and singing on the contrary, is poured directly into the hole in the ear. From picking nuances, faint and draped echo across the vocal, until gradually approaches leading to the siren of “Firehouse”, it is all a super sound that cake in mind. This impact, just “ANAHEIM 1976” since. Moreover, there is was a (super) upgrade of the large classic professional shot voice, here full debut sound source. Although there is a lack in the beginning of “Rock And Roll All Nite” at the end portion and the first song encore of “Deuce” Unfortunately main last, just that it is shock again, that I.
In this work, but in recent years has been using the master, which appeared on the net, because of too much of the high-quality sound, has already begun to circulate mp3 also compressed data. However, this film is not passed through the such a compression faithfully enclosed in press CD sound from the master. As easy to listen, it is the original sound of the only times the fade to the portion of the missing.
Live that unfolds in such a ear direct sound, raise create a name board in name board “DESTROYER”, is the KISS heyday ride to ride. And, venue only overseas performances in Toronto located in Ontario, Canada, “DESTROYER TOUR”. And said that across the border, I live a made in the immediate vicinity of the popular center Detroit (“DESTROYER TOUR” There was no Detroit performances). From small cheers far enthusiasm is easily transmitted, but the enthusiastic performance of the band will tell vividly the frenzy of the field more than anything else. Before the apathetic audience was, it …… there is no reason that you can this kind of amazing performance. Also set new song even turned five songs from “DESTROYER” career work the “ALIVE” in basic, it is truly live large enhancement such as anything and everything “ALIVE 1.5”. The enthusiastic performance is not a …… longer dimension referred to as “good to hear” is poured in the online sound in brain, it is pleasure to remember even confusion referred to as “wonder if was good I listen?”.

When the great full-length thoroughly so far, you can also hesitate to talk about fine listening far from the one songs. Anyway, it does not begin to say of four of five before this sound. “ANAHEIM 1976” and form a matchless people, it is a large-sized and large Ketteiban of heyday KISS. You do not listen, you do not get there and do not have. Of course, it is determined by the release of course the press CD!

全盛期の中の全盛期、“DESTROYER TOUR 1976”のサウンドボード・アルバムの登場です! このツアーのサウンドボードというと、8月20日アナハイム公演の「ANAHEIM 1976」がありますが、あの名盤に肉薄するスーパー・サウンド。まさに驚愕の1枚です!
サウンドボードにも色々ありますが、本作は卓直結かと思うようなダイレクト系。その超高音質ぶりは、再生ボタンを押した途端に飛び出す「Alright, Toronto!!」の雄叫び(ヴォリュームに注意!)から炸裂しています。その絶叫に応える歓声は遠く、逆に歌声と演奏は、耳の穴に直接流し込まれるかのよう。ピッキング・ニュアンスから、ヴォーカルにかかるうっすらとかけられたエコー、徐々に近づく「Firehouse」のサイレンに至るまで、すべてが脳裏にこびりつくスーパー・サウンドなのです。この衝撃は、まさに「ANAHEIM 1976」以来。しかも、あちらは大定番プロショット音声の(スーパー)アップグレードでしたが、こちらは完全初登場音源。残念ながら本編ラストの「Rock And Roll All Nite」の終わり部分とアンコール1曲目の「Deuce」の冒頭に欠けがあるものの、まさにあの衝撃再び、なのです。
そんな耳直サウンドで繰り広げられるライヴは、名盤中の名盤「DESTROYER」を創り上げ、乗りに乗る全盛期のKISSです。そして、会場はカナダ・オンタリオ州にあるトロントで、“DESTROYER TOUR”で唯一の海外公演。国境を挟んでいるとはいえ、人気の中心地デトロイトのすぐそばで行われたライヴ(“DESTROYER TOUR”にデトロイト公演はありませんでした)なのです。遠く小さい歓声からは熱狂は伝わりにくいですが、何よりもバンドの熱演が現場の狂乱をありありと教えてくれます。シラけた観客を前に、こんな凄い演奏をできるわけがない……。セットも出世作「ALIVE」を基本に「DESTROYER」からの新曲を5曲も投入、まさに何から何まで「ALIVE 1.5」といった大充実のライヴです。その熱演が脳みそにオンライン・サウンドで注ぎ込まれる……もはや「聴けて良かった」という次元ではなく、「聴いちゃって良かったのかな?」という戸惑いさえ覚える快感です。

ここまで徹底的に全編が凄いと、1曲ずつの細かい聴きどころをお話するのも躊躇われます。ともかく、この音を前に四の五の言っても始まらない。「ANAHEIM 1976」と双璧を成す、全盛期KISSの大・大・大決定盤です。聴いてない、持っていないはあり得ません。もちろん無論のプレスCDでリリース決定です!
