This wrapped the middle to storm of enthusiasm Japan first Tokyo performances April 1 at Budokan in April head from years Japan Tour 1977, the 2nd (Hill night), but was held in the 4th schedule , this board is, than the original master cassette, fully recorded Afternoon performances two days with high quality audience recording. In (original release in October 2011) noteworthy in that it is recorded from about 4 minutes from perhaps customer electricity is down in the intro, you fit the SE, and across sound output of musical tone is sounded loud, is I find the excitement of the hall has reached the peak. “Hello Tokyo! You Want the Best ···” Following you will be able to enjoy a state of frenzy of Detroit Rock City to start with raw sound. Although sound never close is not musical tone without being blocked by the cheers, are recorded in the real and clear, overall response of listening is full marks. Is not recommended for beginners, but if mania that are listening many live recordings, the goodness of quality and freshness with of this master sound source would be able to immediately determine. In the second half of the show, even a place that is wrapped in clapping of storm, the fact that the musical tone is firmly listen take, this I can say that considerably excellent take. Therefore groove feeling shoot band, also splendor of ensemble you have firmly conveyed. Third song of Let Me Go, Rock And Roll, but noticeable more Ladies Room Atari sound is muffled place, I will recover.

★ This is a review summary of beatleg magazine vol.137 (2011 December). In case you’re wondering.

what Kiss of 1977 the year-to-date Date Budokan concert was in Special Package of 2CD + 1DVD has been released. Recent Kiss has been one after another official of his own boot leg past of live video and sound, but such kiss itself has become to the maniac content not amusing even if planning. First more of the CD, until the past also “Young Music Show” what high-quality sound from such things as recorded as it is, has been around for many, things of this time, so far not been around any audience recordings in, it is a very interesting content. It have been recorded from before about 4 minutes and 30 seconds live begins, in other words, to customer electricity fell, the audience is excited to 70s in the air feeling that is as it is recorded in real. Of course, appearance and SE of tuning, which is a feature of this time, further has also been a recording all until the announcement prompting the exit from the venue after the live end. These in addition to core fans have been recorded to “waste places”, literally, it can be said that it is “complete recording sound source”. Better sound quality as it was muffled seems recording level at the time, unstable place also has some pretty, great and worth even subtracting it, is the same first visit to Japan stuff there many as apart from “record mono” it is possible to find. More of a DVD, not only a Kiss fan, even now for the many rock fans has become a “legend”, that “Young Music Show” rather than, psychedelic song title was subtitles and great features no American broadcast version is attached. Furthermore, as a bonus video, (different is the beginning of the shooting) alternate take of the opening song “Detroit Rock City” and is also happy at the time, “Young Music Show” broadcast has recorded a video of all the rest of the songs that have been cut. 2CDR + DVDR.

1977年「Rock And Roll Over」リリース期に行われた伝説の日本ツアーは、3/24-25 大阪、26 京都、28 愛知 29 再び大阪、30 福岡と、まさに西日本を縦断する形で行われました。この日本中を熱狂の嵐に包み込んだ1977年ジャパンツアーからの初の東京公演は4月頭に武道館で4月1日、2日(昼・夜)、4日の日程で開催されましたが、本盤は、オリジナル・マスターカセットより、2日の午後の部公演を高音質オーディエンス録音で完全収録しています。(オリジナル・リリースは2011年10月)特筆すべきはイントロでおそらく客電が落ちてからの約4分間から収録していることで、SEに合わせ、楽音の出音がラウドに響き渡る中、場内の興奮がピークに達しているのが判ります。「Hello Tokyo! You Want the Best・・・」に続いてスタートするDetroit Rock Cityの狂乱の様子を生々しいサウンドで堪能することができます。音は決して近くは無いものの、楽音は歓声に遮断されること無く、リアルかつクリアーに収録されており、全体の聴き応えは満点です。初心者にはお薦めしませんが、ライブ音源を数多く聴いているマニアならば、このマスター音源のもつクオリティや鮮度の良さは即判断できることでしょう。ショウ後半で、手拍子の嵐に包まれる箇所ですら、楽音はしっかりと聴き取れるということは、これは相当に優秀なテイクと言えます。故にバンドの放つグルーブ感、アンサンブルの素晴らしさもしっかりと伝わってきます。3曲目のLet Me Go, Rock And Roll、更にLadies Room辺りで音が篭る箇所が目立ちますが、回復します。以降は、音像の揺らぎの問題はなく、ラストの終演部までキッチリと録音されており、質の高いドキュメント性を持っている記録版として第一級タイトルであることが判ります(終演後のアナウンスも収録)。


★beatleg誌 vol.137(2011年12月号)のレビュー要約です。ご参考まで。

キッスの1977年初来日日本武道館公演を2CD+1DVDのスペシャル・パッケージにしたものがリリースされた。最近のキッスは自らブートレッグな過去のライヴ映像・音源を次々とオフィシャル化しているが、そんなキッス自身が企画してもおかしくないマニアックな内容になっている。まずCDのほうは、これまでにも「ヤング・ミュージックショウ」をそのまま録音したようなものから高音質なものまで、数多く出回ってきたが、今回のものは、これまで一切出回っていないオーディエンス録音もので、極めて面白い内容となっている。それはライヴが始まる4分30秒ほど前から収録されていて、つまり、客電が落ちて、観客が大興奮している70年代の空気感がリアルにそのまま録音されている。もちろん、この頃の特徴であるチューニングの様子やSE、さらにはライヴ終了後の会場から退出を促すアナウンスまでもがすべて収録されている。こうしたコアなファン以外には“無駄なところ”まで収録されている、文字通りに、“完全収録音源”だと言える。音質のほうは当時の録音レベルらしい籠ったもので、不安定な箇所もかなりあるが、それを差し引いても、数多ある同様の初来日ものとは一線を画す“記録モノ”として大いなる価値を見出すことができる。DVDのほうは、キッス・ファンだけでなく、多くのロック・ファンにとっても今では“伝説”となっている、あの「ヤング・ミュージックショウ」ではなく、字幕や大きな特徴だったサイケな曲タイトルのないアメリカ放送バージョンが付いている。さらにはボーナス映像として、オープニング曲「Detroit Rock City」の別テイク(始まりの撮影が違う)と「ヤング・ミュージックショウ」放送時にはカットされた残りすべての曲の映像を収録しているのも嬉しい。2CDR + DVDR。
