KISS The fateful night when Japan met. The legendary original recording that has handed down the whole story has been brushed up. Introducing a permanent storage press CD.

[The one and only record that recorded the first day of the first meeting even in the legendary first visit to Japan] The night of the encounter was the performance of “March 24, 1977: Osaka Welfare Pension Hall”. It is a legendary audience recording that vacuum-packed a unique show even for the first time in Japan. The biggest attraction of this work is the wonderful sound, but more important than that is the position of the show. First of all, let’s look back on the legendary first visit to Japan in the schedule.

・ March 24: Osaka Welfare Pension Hall ← ★ This work ★
・ March 25: Osaka Welfare Pension Hall
・ March 26: Kyoto Hall
・ March 28: Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium
・ March 30: Fukuoka City Kyuden Memorial Gymnasium
・ April 1: Nippon Budokan
・ April 2: Nippon Budokan (2 performances day and night) ← * TV broadcast
・ April 4: Nippon Budokan

Above, all 9 performances. Speaking of their first visit to Japan, the 4 consecutive performances of Nippon Budokan set at the end are symbolic, especially the TV broadcast pro shot. However, the Osaka performance of this work is the exact opposite, and even if it is the first visit to Japan, it is the stage of the first day. Yes, it was the first time that I was the best in Japan live where all 66 performances were realized in the following 42 years.
This work, which recorded a unique show, is also unique in recording itself. The origin of this work was the master who first appeared as “THE FIRST SHOW IN JAPAN” from the Power Gate label, but there has been no new excavation since then. It’s no wonder that a lot of recordings are left only for the show that is too memorial, but there is only this recording later and earlier.

[Amazing clear sound that is real and enthusiastic but easy to hear] It’s
just a historical recording, and the quality is reasonable. Anyway, a thick core pierces the center of the clear air, and the details are clear and clear. It’s not the type that is mistaken for a sound board, but on the other hand, the audience recording feels like a tone, and there is no sense of distance or squishyness. In rock history, there are occasional radio broadcasts recorded by microphones, but this work is just like that. The vivid listening response is a superb sound that is more like an FM broadcast than a guest record.
Audience noise that is strangely distant plays a role in the feeling of broadcasting. As a matter of fact, I also inhale a lot of loud cheers and whistles that seem to be my first visit to Japan, but I feel that it is far farther than the thick and thick playing sound / singing voice. In fact, I can clearly see that there is a lot of excitement between the songs where there is no sound on the stage, but there is still no upcoming screaming or screaming. It feels like the ocean in the distance is raging, and while you can feel the spectacle of the times realistically, it is not hard to hear.
Moreover, this work is the highest peak update version that refined such clear recording with meticulous and latest mastering. Of course, he doesn’t earn a lot of sound pressure, and he keeps the fresh sound of the original master to the maximum. After that, adjust each range from high to deep bass and adjust the balance. The mid-low tones that came to my stomach were fully responsive, and the high-pitched tones were also improved. Not only as a valuable record, but also as a simple musical piece, the sound is completely immersed.
What is drawn with such a clear sound is a fresh full show because it is the first meeting. As mentioned above, their first visit to Japan is based on the professional shots of Nippon Budokan, so let’s organize the sets while comparing them.

・ KISS (4 songs): Firehouse / Cold Gin / Nothin’To Lose / Black Diamond
・ HOTTER THAN HELL (1 song): Let Me Go, Rock And Roll
・ DRESSED TO KILL (1 song): Rock And Roll All Nite
・ DESTROYER (5 songs): Detroit Rock City / Do You Love Me? (★) / God Of Thunder / Shout It Out Loud (★) / Beth (★)
・ ROCK AND ROLL OVER (4 songs): Take Me (★) ) / Ladies Room (★) / Makin’Love / I Want You (★)
* Note: “★” marks are songs that cannot be heard on the TV broadcast pro shots of Nippon Budokan.

… And it looks like this. This work is 1/78, but it is completely recorded. Of the 15 songs played on this day, more than 1/3 of the 6 songs are repertoires that can not be heard even with Budokan Pro Shot, and you can enjoy precious numbers such as “Take Me” and “Ladies Room” that are delicious worldwide.
However, what is more than that is the unique mood and tension that goes through the whole story. After all, this is the first day of my first visit to Japan. Everyone and he had their first experience, and now each of the famous gimmicks has a fresh joy, and the surprise of “What’s this!” Instead of “Waiting!” Of course, that is also true on the KISS side. Even if I have experience in Europe, I can’t imagine what kind of reaction will be returned for the first time in Asia where I can’t speak English at all. At first, the momentum was such that the anxiety was shaken off, but the tremendous enthusiasm of the Japanese people stimulated the excitement of each song. This work is also a sound that makes you feel like you can pick up the psychology of these four people.

In the following 42 years, he has visited Japan 12 times. They left a total of 66 performances in Japan. It is the first time that you can enjoy this work. The one and only live album that recorded the most important night in many “KISS in Japan”. The highest peak update board. Please experience it with a permanent preservation press CD, which is nothing but a cultural heritage of rock.

★ Kiss’s first performance in Japan to commemorate. The sound quality is also great!




ユニークなショーを録音したこの作品は、レコーディング自体もユニークです。この作品の原点は、パワーゲートレーベルから「THE FIRST SHOW IN JAPAN」として初登場したマスターでしたが、それ以来、新たな発掘は行われていません。あまりにも記念すべきショーのためだけに多くのレコーディングが残されているのも不思議ではありませんが、このレコーディングは後でそして早くしかありません。


・KISS(4曲):Firehouse / Cold Gin / Nothin’To Lose / Black Diamond
・HOTTER THAN HELL(1曲):レット・ミー・ゴー、ロックンロール
・DRESSED TO KILL(1曲):ロックンロールオールナイト
・DESTROYER(5曲):デトロイトロックシティ/ Do You Love Me? (★)/雷神/狂気の叫び(★)/ベス(★)
・ROCK AND ROLL OVER(4曲):Take Me(★))/ Ladies Room(★)/ Makin’Love / I Want You(★)

しかし、それ以上のものは、物語全体を貫く独特のムードと緊張感です。結局のところ、これは私の最初の日本訪問の最初の日です。みんなと彼は初めての経験をしました、そして今、有名なギミックのそれぞれは新鮮な喜びと「これは何ですか!」の驚きを持っています。 「待っている!」の代わりにもちろん、それもtrです

Even in the case of Japanese Western music history The first visit to Japan of the KISS legend. The main press CD is a unique live album where you can fully experience the monumental first day. As a bonus to commemorate the brush-up, we have prepared a super-standard multi-camera pro shot that will be “KISS’s first visit to Japan.”
The performance of “April 2, 1977: Nippon Budokan” is included in this work. This show was broadcast on TV at that time and was a big staple that has produced many existing episodes. Formalization was also realized as part of “KISSOLOGY VOLUME ONE: 1974? 1977”, and the US broadcast version was also recorded in “ALIVE AT BUDOKAN 1977” and became very popular. However, this work is a different Japanese “Young Music Show” broadcast version. It’s also a superb version that was rebroadcast in 2004, not in 1977.
Of course, I’m sure many of you have seen it only as a standard item, but it’s still a quality that you can’t help but be surprised at. In fact, this video is not just a rerun. An archive program of a certain broadcasting association purposely unearthed a 3/4 inch master and digitally remastered it independently. Although the number of songs is smaller than the official DVD because it is a broadcast version, the reprint that seems to bet the prestige of Japan’s leading broadcasting station is thin on the official archive of the KISS head family. That nostalgic program logo and Japanese telop such as MC are also super vivid. Exactly as it was at that time … No, the visual beauty of modern standards, which is far more advanced than that time, will be unfolded.

It’s full to witness the first visit to Japan with its super-visual beauty, but it’s not the only one. What’s more must-see is actually before the live. Female narrators and Japanese musicians will appear to talk about the importance of this video. This is a masterpiece that makes you crazy. As always, the NHK narrator is elegant, easy to understand and polite. An explanatory manuscript probably written by a rock fan staff is also appropriate. But the more appropriate Rock is, usually spoken in the tone of reading news and world history documentary manuscripts, the more something passes by. The BAY CITY ROLLERS Makurakotoba is also elegantly accompanied by “It was very popular with women”, and it is as if you were saying even one pronunciation of “Jimi Hendrix” for the first time. Still, the voice is full of power to act as a spokesperson for young people, and even when introducing Jean, he said, “It is characterized by a devilish expression of anger and a long tongue,” and politely “current members” in the 1st jacket. It is different from the telop.
Furthermore, the viewers’ letters looking back on their youth were read aloud with emotion, and the musicians who were always fooling around looked back on those days and remembered the face-to-face recordings of TV and teleco. I want you to see it. ” The impact of KISS’s visit, which is talked about by the “good sense,” “good intentions,” and “best of luck” of the broadcasting association that we are familiar with on a daily basis. I’m glad that KISS stands on that stage, and at the same time it’s a tickling prelude.
And the finest live main story will be aired, but after that it is even more amazing. The story of the hardships of the broadcasting staff at that time and the social situation at that time are told. At the request of KISS, four people were evenly projected with more than twice the number of cameras as usual, a camera dedicated to Jean’s tongue was prepared, it was the first broadcast using multi-recording and time code, etc. Interesting anecdotes pop out one after another because it is a broadcasting association.
And the best part is the social situation of the 70’s when rock didn’t understand. A documentary video of an educational program called “Teen’s Educational Counseling: Rock’n’Roll” has appeared, and complaints received at the “Young Music Show” are also introduced. Parents worried that “I was absorbed in the guitar and was absent from school without notice (there was no word for school refusal)” and complained “Why do you use public radio waves to make such useless noise?” .. Nowadays, the seriousness is so ridiculous. And the director at the time, who continued to play rock to fight it, also enthusiastically talks.

Finally, “Kiss Symphony” appears as the latest video at the time of rebroadcast, and this work closes the curtain. It is also a superb live pro shot of KISS in the golden age, but at the same time, “KISS as Japanese cultural history” is a vivid piece. A super masterpiece with a strong impact on all Japanese who love rock, regardless of whether they are KISS fans or not. By all means, please experience the legendary Kisshirt visit to Japan with the historical monument album “OSAKA 1977 1st Night”.

この作品には「1977年4月2日日本武道館」の公演が含まれています。この番組は当時テレビで放送され、多くの既存のエピソードを生み出してきた大きな定番でした。 『KISSOLOGY VOLUME ONE:1974?1977』の一環として形式化も実現し、 『ALIVE AT BUDOKAN 1977』にもアメリカ放送版が収録され、大人気となった。ただし、この作品は日本の「ヤングミュージックショー」の放送版とは異なります。また、1977年ではなく2004年に再放送された素晴らしいバージョンでもあります。

その超視覚的な美しさで初めて日本を訪れたのを目撃するのはいっぱいですが、それだけではありません。さらに必見ののは、実際にはライブの前です。女性のナレーターと日本のミュージシャンがこのビデオの重要性について話しているように見えます。これはあなたを夢中にさせる傑作です。いつものように、NHKのナレーターはエレガントで、理解しやすく、礼儀正しいです。おそらくロックファンのスタッフが書いた説明原稿も適切です。しかし、ロックが適切であるほど、通常はニュースや世界史のドキュメンタリー原稿を読むという口調で話され、何かが通り過ぎるほどです。 BAY CITY ROLLERS枕詞も「女性に大人気」と上品に添えられており、まるで「ジミ・ヘンドリックス」の発音を初めて言ったかのようです。それでも、声は若者のスポークスパーソンとして行動する力に満ちており、ジャンを紹介するときでさえ、彼は「それは怒りの悪魔的な表現と長い舌が特徴です」と言い、丁寧に「現在のメンバー」 1枚目のジャケット。テロップとは違います。
さらに、若者を振り返る視聴者の手紙が感動的に読み上げられ、いつも浮気をしていたミュージシャンたちが当時を振り返り、テレビやテレコの対面録音を思い出しました。見てほしい。 「私たちが日常的に知っている放送協会の「良識」「善意」「幸運」で語られるKISS訪問の影響。KISSが立ってくれてうれしいです。そのステージで、同時にそれはくすぐったい前奏曲です。
そして、最高のライブメインストーリーが放映されますが、その後はさらに素晴らしいものになります。当時の放送スタッフの苦労と当時の社会情勢を物語っています。 KISSの依頼で、いつもの2倍以上のカメラで4人が均等に映し出され、ジャンの舌専用のカメラが用意され、マルチレコーディングやタイムコードなどを使った初放送となりました。面白い逸話が飛び出します。放送協会なので次々と。
そして一番いいのは、ロックが理解できなかった70年代の社会情勢です。 「ティーンの教育カウンセリング:ロックンロール」という教育プログラムのドキュメンタリービデオが登場し、「ヤングミュージックショー」で受けた苦情も紹介されています。両親は「私はギターに夢中になり、予告なしに学校を休んだ(不登校の言葉はなかった)」と心配し、「なぜそんな無駄な音を出すために公共の電波を使うのか」と不満を漏らした。 ..今日、深刻さはとてもばかげています。そして、それと戦うためにロックを続けていた当時の監督も熱心に語っています。

最後に、再放送時の最新動画として「キスシンフォニー」が登場し、幕を閉じます。黄金時代のKISSの見事なライブプロショットでもありますが、同時に「日本の文化史としてのKISS」も鮮やかな作品です。 KISSファンであろうとなかろうと、ロックを愛するすべての日本人に強い影響を与える超傑作。歴史的記念物アルバム「OSAKA19771st Night」で、伝説のキスシャツの来日をぜひ体験してください。
