Our own official spilled sound board series that shook the world of mania. Among them, the upgrade version of the superb live album that was hailed as the apex of the 80s no-make KISS is now on sale. Engraved in such a work is “Stockholm performance on September 17, 1988”. Yes, it is the famous record “BURY YOU ALIVE” that was hailed as the masterpiece of “CRAZY NIGHTS TOUR” at the peak of 80’s no-make KISS.
However, this work is not a straight recurrence. It is digitized again from the spill master that shocked the world. It is an upgrade board polished with the latest mastering. Suddenly, it was a “masterpiece” but a “masterpiece”, but if you do n’t know “BURY YOU ALIVE”, you wo n’t be able to come to a point. Let’s start with the show position.

● 1987
<< September 21 “CRAZY NIGHTS” released >>
・ November 13-December 31: North America # 1 (31 performances)
● 1988
・ January 1-April 2: North America # 2 (66 performances)
・ April 16-24: Japan (5 performances)
・ 4th July: Swansea performance
・ August 12 + 13: New York (2 performances)
・ August 16-October 4: Europe (23 performances) ← ★ Here ★

This is the overall picture of “CRAZY NIGHTS TOUR”. The only Japanese performance in the 80’s is a memorable one, but this work is five months later. It was a concert corresponding to the 12th performance of the “Europe” leg, the final edition of the world tour. And “BURY YOU ALIVE” is the best stereo sound board recorded directly from the show’s mix table. In addition to its preciousness, the contents were transcendent. From “CRAZY NIGHTS TOUR”, MONSTERS OF ROCK and some sound boards are left, but most of them are incomplete versions. All four performances of the official “KISSOLOGY” were also excerpts. On the other hand, this sound board recording was a full recording of a single penetration.
Of course, the sound is the highest. It is different from the official work style that is arranged only for the direct connection of the desk … No, it can be said that the official is “completely official class” if it is said by the modern standard that is positive for excavation. The performance and singing voice of zero distance & intrusion level sings, everything is vivid. Although there is no overdub to produce the atmosphere of the concert, the cheering that can be heard slightly from the far side is thick, and you can feel a tremendous spectacle.
In addition, this work is a record-updated board that has raised the highest peak of such outflow masters. Of course, it was superb from the beginning, but when I poke the corner of the heavy box, I found room for improvement. For example, stereo balance. The Daimoto Master was slightly on the left, but in this work, it was aligned with the center and the volume was unnaturally changed in some parts (the staff on site would have squeezed the knob). Arranged. Of course, the entire sound itself has been brushed up, and each range has been arranged with great care so as not to impair the glossiness of the original sound. The bottom is thicker, and it has a powerful yet natural sound.
The show depicted with such an updated sound is Greatest Hits, which does not end only in the 70s. Let’s organize the set here.

● 70s (10 songs)
・ KISS: Cold Gin / Black Diamond / Firehouse / Deuce / Strutter
・ DRESSED TO KILL : Rock And Roll All Nite
・ DESTROYER: Shout It Out Loud / Detroit Rock City
・ LOVE GUN: Love Gun
・ DYNASTY: I Was Made For Lovin ‘You
● 80s (9 songs)
・ LICK IT UP: Fits Like A Glove / Lick It Up
・ ANIMALIZE: Heaven’s On Fire
・ ASYLUM: Tears Are Falling
・ CRAZY NIGHTS: Bang Bang You / No, No, No / Crazy Crazy Nights / Reason To Live

… and it looks like this. There are lots of delicious songs such as “Fits Like A Glove”, which has not been played since Reunion, and “Bang Bang You”, “No, No, No”, “Reason To Live”. Even in the 70’s, “Strutter”, “Rock And Roll All Nite”, and “Shout It Out Loud” cannot be heard even when the four performances recorded in “KISSOLOGY” are combined. Though)
Of course, the performance itself is more than that set. Bruce Curick’s flashy guitar rampaged, and the late Eric Carr’s drumming was greatly reduced. The sense of fulfillment that entered the golden age again overflowed, and the height of the tension that witnessed the enthusiasm was transformed into a momentum. You can really enjoy the top of the no-make era with a superb sound board.

”There were“ ALIVE! ”And“ ALIVE II ”in the 70s, and“ ALIVE III ”was left in the 90s. However, Eric Carr is alive during the heyday of No Make KISS. This work is a live album that will be “ALIVE 2.5”, which the official should have left. Not only a super-superior stereo sound board, but one that complements the “top of no makeup” that the officials left behind. The highest peak update board. Please enjoy as much as you like with the permanent preservation press 2CD.

全世界のマニアを震撼させた当店独自の関係者流出サウンドボード・シリーズ。その中にあって、80年代ノーメイクKISSの頂点作と謳われた超極上ライヴアルバムのアップグレード盤が登場です。そんな本作に刻まれているのは「1988年9月17日ストックホルム公演」。そう、80年代ノーメイクKISSの絶頂期“CRAZY NIGHTS TOUR”の最高傑作と謳われた名盤『BURY YOU ALIVE』です。
ただし、本作はストレートな再発ではありません。世界に衝撃を振りまいた流出マスターから再度デジタル化。最新マスタリングで磨き込んだアップグレード盤なのです。いきなり「最高傑作」だの「名盤」だのまくし立ててしまいましたが、『BURY YOU ALIVE』をご存じなければピンと来ないでしょうから、順を追ってご説明いたします。まずは、ショウのポジションから始めましょう。

《9月21日『CRAZY NIGHTS』発売》

これが“CRAZY NIGHTS TOUR”の全体像。80年代唯一の日本公演も思い出深いところですが、本作はその5ヶ月後。ワールド・ツアー最終盤となる「欧州」レッグ12公演目にあたるコンサートでした。そして、そんなショウのミックス卓から直接録音された極上ステレオ・サウンドボードが『BURY YOU ALIVE』。関係者からもたらされた大元マスターで、その貴重度に加えて内容も超絶でした。“CRAZY NIGHTS TOUR”からはMONSTERS OF ROCKを始め、いくつかのサウンドボードが残されていますが、そのほとんどが不完全版。オフィシャル『KISSOLOGY』の4公演もすべて抜粋でした。それに対し、このサウンドボード録音は一気貫通のフル収録だったのです。

・KISS:Cold Gin/Black Diamond/Firehouse/Deuce/Strutter
・DRESSED TO KILL:Rock And Roll All Nite
・DESTROYER:Shout It Out Loud/Detroit Rock City
・LOVE GUN:Love Gun
・DYNASTY:I Was Made For Lovin’ You
・LICK IT UP:Fits Like A Glove/Lick It Up
・ANIMALIZE:Heaven’s On Fire
・ASYLUM:Tears Are Falling
・CRAZY NIGHTS:Bang Bang You/No, No, No/Crazy Crazy Nights/Reason To Live

……と、このようになっています。リユニオン以降は演奏していない「Fits Like A Glove」やこのツアーだけの「Bang Bang You」「No, No, No」「Reason To Live」など、美味しい曲が盛りだくさん。70年代ナンバーにしても「Strutter」「Rock And Roll All Nite」「Shout It Out Loud」辺りは『KISSOLOGY』に収録された4公演分を組み合わせても聴けません(他ツアーのテイクなら見られたのですが)。

70年代には『ALIVE!』『ALIVE II』があり、90年代には『ALIVE III』が残されました。しかし、ノーメイクKISS本当の全盛期はエリック・カー存命中。本作は、本来オフィシャルが残すべきだった『ALIVE 2.5』となるライヴアルバムなのです。単なる超極上ステレオ・サウンドボードというだけでなく、オフィシャルが残し損なった“ノーメイクの頂点”を補完する1本。その最高峰更新盤。どうぞ、永久保存プレス2CDで思う存分お楽しみください。
