The world’s first publicly released superb sound board album is the emergence of shock. In our shop, we have released numerous superb sound board sound sources, but this time “LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”. It is a spill sound board of “Fort Worth performances on September 4 and 5, 1977” that will be a tour Chiaki.
Speaking of our first public sound board, it is already familiar to KISS Army. “UNRELEASED SPRING 1973 REHEARSAL (Zodiac 059)”, “AMITYVILLE 1973 (Zodiac 051)” in the 1970s, including the series “REVENGE IN DAYTON (Zodiac 014)” and “REVENGE IS READY: TOUR REHARSAL 1992 (Zodiac 015) “STUDIO DEMOS 1975 (Zodiac 054)”, “ANAHEIM 1976 (Zodiac 031)” and so on, all of which are superior finest products. It is the monkey and related persons who provided these, but the same route this time as well. It was a while for a while, but it shocked again.
There are two such first public masters. It is a 2-pack set which arranged the final day of tour “September 5, 1977” on Disk 1 and “September 4” on Disk 2. Although it is reverse to the time series, the main of this work is a disc 1 of the final day “September 5” to the last. Also, the recording time is very different. “September 5th” of Disc 1 is about 67 minutes long and contains most of the show (15 songs other than “God of Thunder” and “Shout it Out Loud”), but the disc 2 ” September 4 “is about 24 minutes (4 songs from drum solo to performances). Initially I was considering the idea of ​​”press only disk 1 and disk 2 to a bonus ……”, but both of the two masters are too valuable and very superb. I thought that both should be permanently preserved, and it was like this one.
Actually, the sound of this work is intense. If you have heard even one of the above titles you’ve probably come with a pin, but it’s nothing more than a “direct connection to the sound board desk”. The guitar and bass jump in like the plug thrust into the ear, and the singing voice of Paul and Jean is also poured directly from the microphone into the brain’s miso. “There is KISS in my head” rather than “listening” anymore. That is the feeling of burying as if the skull became a concert venue.
It is drawn with such quality in the KISS golden age straighthand. Speaking of “LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”, “ALIVE II” is wholly sticking to the whole body, but this work can be said as the real version. Let’s take a look at the schedule of the final stage “LOVE GUN TOUR 1977” here.

· August 22, Phoenix
· August 26 Inglewood “ALIVE II”
· August 27 Inglewood “ALIVE II”
· August 28 Inglewood “ALIVE II”
· September 1st Houston
· September 2 Houston “KISSOLOGY VOLUME ONE”
· September 4th Fort Worth 【this work disc 2】
· September 5th Fort Worth 【this work disc 1】 (last day)

That is the last tour of the tour. The main live of the official name board was “August 26 – 28 Inglewood”, but this work is only after that 3-4 performances. It is right after the Houston performance recorded in the official box “KISSOLOGY VOLUME ONE”. Even though such times are very similar, this work is quite different from “ALIVE II”. KISS is a band that does not hesitate in the studio for completeness and entertainment due to rare professional consciousness, but there is no such processing in this work only with direct desk. That “freshness” and “real feeling” are not ratios. Moreover, it is the flame’s live that you would like to say “Is not it possible to do it” that is drawn with sounds that may be transmitted to the touch of the members? It keeps the band potential that produced that masterpiece, while listening to the enthusiasm that even the fulfillment feeling and the sense of accomplishment added on the last day were added.

Once the tape ends in “Calling Dr. Love” on Disk 1, right after “Rock And Roll All Nite” it starts from the middle, but this is also the Omoto master itself. Because of valuable records, I did not cut it with a fade, I made the figure of the truth into a CD altogether. The latest bullet of the world-first soundboard series, the super-determined version of “LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”, and the original edition of “ALIVE II” …. It is one that goes up to the highest even if you listen to it in an era. This weekend, shocks will be delivered to you a while.
全世界初公開の極上サウンドボード・アルバムが衝撃の登場です。当店では、これまでも数々の極上サウンドボード音源を公開してきましたが、今回は“LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”。ツアー千秋楽となる「1977年9月4日・5日:フォートワース公演」の流出サウンドボードです。
当店の初公開サウンドボードと言えば、KISSアーミーにはもうお馴染みのことでしょう。90年代の連作『REVENGE IN DAYTON(Zodiac 014)』『REVENGE IS READY : TOUR REHEARSAL 1992(Zodiac 015)』を始め、70年代でも『UNRELEASED SPRING 1973 REHEARSAL(Zodiac 059)』『AMITYVILLE 1973(Zodiac 051)』『STUDIO DEMOS 1975(Zodiac 054)』『ANAHEIM 1976(Zodiac 031)』等々など、いずれ劣らぬ極上品ばかり。これらを提供してくださったのは、さる“元・関係者”なのですが、今回もまた同じルート。しばらく間が空きましたが、再び衝撃を届けてくださったのです。
そんな初公開マスターは2本。ディスク1にツアー最終日「1977年9月5日」、ディスク2に「9月4日」を配した2枚組です。時系列とは逆になっていますが、本作のメインは、あくまでも最終日「9月5日」のディスク1。と言うのも、収録時間が大きく違う。ディスク1の「9月5日」は約67分の長尺でショウの大部分(「God of Thunder」「Shout it Out Loud」以外の15曲)を収めているのですが、ディスク2の「9月4日」は約24分ほど(ドラムソロから終演までの4曲)なのです。当初は「ディスク1のみプレスし、ディスク2はボーナスに……」という案も検討されたのですが、2本のマスターは両方とも、あまりに貴重であまりも極上。どちらも永久保存すべきと考え、このようなカタチとなりました。
そんなクオリティで描かれるのは、KISS黄金期真っ直中のショウ。“LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”と言えば、『ALIVE II』が全身に染みついているわけですが、本作はその本生版と言ってもいい。ここでちょっと“LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”最終盤の日程を見てみましょう。

・8月26日イングルウッド『ALIVE II』
・8月27日イングルウッド『ALIVE II』
・8月28日イングルウッド『ALIVE II』

以上がツアー最後の8公演。オフィシャル名盤のメイン・ライヴは「8月26日-28日イングルウッド」だったわけですが、本作はそのわずか3-4公演後。公式ボックス『KISSOLOGY VOLUME ONE』に収録されたヒューストン公演の直後なのです。そんな時期は酷似していても、本作は『ALIVE II』とはまるで違う。KISSは類い希なるプロ意識によって、完成度とエンターテインメントのためならスタジオでも躊躇なく手を加えるバンドですが、本作には卓直結だけにそうした加工が一切ない。その“生々しさ”・“本物感”は比ではないのです。しかも、メンバーの手触りまで伝わりそうなサウンドで描かれるのは「可能の必要なんかないじゃないか」と言いたくなるような炎のライヴ。あの名盤を生み出したバンド・ポテンシャルはそのままに、最終日ならではの充実感・達成感までもが上乗せされた熱演を聴かせてくれるのです。

ディスク1の「Calling Dr. Love」途中で一度テープが終わり、直後に「Rock And Roll All Nite」の途中から始まりますが、これも大元マスターそのもの。貴重な記録故に、フェイドで削ることなく、真実の姿をそっくりCDにいたしました。全世界初登場のサウンドボード・シリーズの最新弾、“LOVE GUN TOUR 1977”の超・決定版、そして『ALIVE II』の本生版……いかように聴いても最高にして超絶なる1本。今週末、久々の衝撃をあなたのお手元にお届けいたします。
