★ The 3rd day of the ’77 legendary LA performance 6days, the performance on June 23rd appeared in the raging 6-disc press decision board!
★ The first coupling title ever with LP and mirrored sound sources as the main!
★ Double-sided front jacket design with LP jacket as a motif (first attempt)!
★ 4th track insert (LP jacket on both sides) included!
★ Limited number included!

(Sound source arrangement)
Source 1 … LP record board that has been familiar for a long time. Best sound for closeness and low-frequency texture.
In this title, it is recorded in the main on the 1-3rd.

Source 2 … Stereo Audi sound source by familiar mirrored (not net). Best sound for closeness and clarity.
Mainly recorded on the 4th-6th titles.

Source 3 … A mono sound source (not the net) that was widely used in the 90s. Since the Song Remain that has not been recorded in Source 1 and 2 is recorded without cut, it is a sound source that is frequently used in the same song. This board is also used for Song Remain and inter-song compensation. Although this sound source is inferior in sound quality, it can be seen that it is a sound source caught at a position very close to the mirrored sound source of Source 2 from cheers and applause.

Source 4 … Sound source mono Aud (not the net) that was widely used in the 90s. Often confused with Source 3, but not. A sound source that has been used since NQ on the old cod and ARMS boards. This time, it has been slightly adopted to compensate for cuts between songs.

Source 5: A mono audio source that seems to have been distributed in recent years. The sound quality is the strictest and the recording time is less than 80 minutes. Not adopted this time.

Source 6: Sound board sound source that seems to have been distributed in recent years, only the excerpt sound source of the guitar solo part is currently confirmed. Bonus recording on this board.

On June 23, 1977, a familiar legendary live appeared in the best version with two high-quality sound sources as the main!
Version 1-3 edited mainly from the old high-quality analog LP (Source 1), version 4-6 version also based on the familiar ultra-high-quality mirrored source (Source 2) Complementing each other with the missing parts in the main source, and supplementing the missing parts with sources 3 and 4, both versions complete recording. By thoroughly editing and mastering each time you are familiar, follow up missing missing that has been missed in the past. It may be said that the title has been edited so far for the first time.

The main part of the 1-3th analog LP is digitized directly from the analog LP. In terms of sound quality, despite the high-quality sound source next to Millard’s source 2 as the sound source on the same day, we are not blessed with good CD, and when it comes to direct CD conversion from analog LP, it will be a long time except for the net sound source. There has been digitalization from analog boards in the past, but scratches are great, noise reduction is too much, and freshness has dropped, or editing is another breathing net sound source Although it was just one step away and there was no definitive title, the best version based on analog LP is finally here this time. The analog LP was released at that time in 2 LPs, each of “LZ 1234” and “LZ 7”, and the “LZ 1234” was reissued with the recording content slightly increased, this time The part of “LZ 1234” is digitized from the recurrence. Scratch noise has also been carefully removed at this time, and there is no traditional processing that stretches the film or makes the sound como, so only scratch noise remains while maintaining the freshness of the master LP. It has been carefully removed.

The missing part has been compensated extremely carefully, and the missing parts that have been missed so far are carefully followed up to the inter-song. The replenishment staff is the mirrored sound source of source 2 (not the net), and the parts that are still missing are mobilized source 3 and source 4 (both are not net), and all songs are completely recorded. As for “Song Remain” which is not yet received on the analog LP board, there is no mirrored sound source, so it is the same concept as the previous one by making up the whole from Source 3. As for the cuts that have been missed in the past, “NQ” CD time around 19:41 is a cut by replacing the LP board, naturally there is a missing part that anyone can understand, but other than that cut There was a cut of about 20 seconds on the analog board near CD time 7:22, which was compensated for the first time this time. For other parts of the song, complete recording has been realized with supplementary editing that emphasizes balance in order to avoid discomfort as finely as possible. The analog main version of the legendary performance can be enjoyed for the longest with the quality that is different from the Winston of the net.

A short message that seems to be due to the LP author who was recorded in the last of the analog board “LZ 7” as a bonus track. Although it has been recorded several times even on existing CDs, it is irrelevant to live performances.

The 4th-6th version is based on the mirrored sound source (source 2).
The mirrored sound source itself was made into a CD after a while in the 1990s. It is a sound source that recorded everything from “Since” to the ending without being captured from the live start to “hill” (like there were various theories that failed to record …), and other cuts and dropdowns It wasn’t because of many sound sources, but it wasn’t all that mirrored sound sources at the time, but instead of mirrored sound sources such as the old Tara board and ARMS board, source 3 and source 4 monaural sound sources including tracks without cuts in the song were used. I think that the title with the main song (the mirrored sound source was used only at the end of the game) and the full song recording was rather highly rated. It is a story before a CD that edits multiple sound sources based on the sound source of the best sound quality as it is now. In the late 90’s, labels such as ancient cobras and TDOLZ recorded the beginning of unsettled Mirrored in Source 3, followed by items recorded in Mirrored after “Since”, and this recording format became standard After that, the titles to be released will follow this recording format in general, and improve the sound quality of the material, compensation technology, and accuracy. At present, the scoo board that came out at the end of 2007 is the best overall title. In addition to being a legendary ’77LA live, it is a high-quality sound source, so it is not as much as the first day “Eddie” recorded on the 21st, but compared to the analog LP sound source, there are quite a few mirrored CD items for the past 20 years Every time, it has been swayed, such as “How about this time”, “Which is better?”, “This is good”.

In recent years, a pattern that compensates for missing parts with multiple sources based on this mirrored sound source has been firmly established, but there is almost no reason to use analog LP board for compensation despite high sound quality following Millard (rather than analog Even though some people think that the LP board is better, it is still a habit of scratch noise processing. Titles that use the analog LP board for a moment with a slight omission have been EV boards and scooters in recent years, but when analog LPs are used extensively from “The Rover-Sick Again” to “hill” Surprisingly none. From Atama’s live intro to “Song Remain”, both mirrored sound source and analog LP are not recorded, so it is best to record in source 3 at present, this is the same as many of the existing records However, for the three songs until “Since” after that, it should be a better choice to compensate for the mirror LP and the analog LP that competes for the top sound quality with the sound source of the day. Therefore, for the 4th and 6th pieces, the second source is the analog LP decision board based on a mirrored sound source based on the analog LP board. Compared to the recent titles that have been supplemented with source 3 for “Sick Again”, “Nobody’s Fault”, and “hill” on this analog LP board, the size of the sound image, the proximity of the performance, the resolution of the sound, The sound pressure, etc. are all overwhelmingly higher than the analog LP board, and you will be convinced by this editing. However, as a result of editing with the best possible selection, please note that the recorded content is the same in the beginning of the first CD and the beginning of the fourth CD. It will be interesting to compare with the difference between the first and fourth CDs from the inter-song editing section after the “hill” performance.

This section is about the main mirrored sound source (source 2), but it is not the net, it is a super stereo sound recording with outstanding freshness, ultra high sound quality sound that combines high and low frequencies similar to the best scooter is. In the scoo board, it was a stigma to contain a lot of video tracking noise and hum noise, but in this title there is almost no tracking noise and hum noise smell, there is hiss, of course, but it is powerful and It’s clear and fresh, and it’s definitely the best sound of the day for Mirrored Master.

As for editing, analog LP board is mainly adopted for the sub as mentioned above, and the missing part is adopted in the order of source 3 and source 4. Also here, the cuts that had been missed in the past have been carefully compensated, and some dropouts near “NQ” CD time 13:01, 26:04, 27:46 are pinched in the past. It was just what I did, but it seems that I’m worried about pinching and processing and apparently listening. Therefore, in this board, these dropouts are only a few seconds in the section, but are nicely compensated with analog LP. Also, as for the part between songs immediately after “NQ” performance, there is a missing part of about 17 seconds in the already published title, but this is also compensated by analog LP.
I will omit the detailed points if I raise them, but I will omit them, but there is no doubt that this board, which has been carefully mastered over the whole volume, will become a new decision board for the badge holder.

As a bonus track, the sound board sound source of the guitar solo part that has been distributed in the last 6th piece is recorded for about 12 minutes.
Perhaps it seems that one channel is made Mono, and it is not a great sound quality, so it is recorded with a bonus. Compensation is not made for the convenience of CD recording time. There are so many cuts that anyone will notice if there are about 2 cuts, but the actual cuts are probably 1:04, 4:55, 5:37, 5:44, 7:25, 10:28.

The jacket is a double-sided front jacket with two types of analog LP board jackets arranged on both sides of the CD case.
By the way, “LZ 1234” (Jimmy’s pattern) is based on the original reissue board jacket as well as the contents of the CD, and the character arrangement and color are arranged for the CD case. In the 1st issue LP, there is no gap on the ZEPPELIN “Z”, and unlike the recurring board jacket, the bottom edge of the pattern is “LZ 1234” and the bottom edge of Jimmy’s photo is aligned in the 1st issue LP jacket. In the recurrence, there is a step at the bottom of the pattern and the letters “LZ 1234” (information thanks).
Includes an insert for the song. There is a cover of the LP as it is.
Specifications with stickers attached with limited numbering.
The CD label is a permanent version of the picture disc.


Source 1・・・LPレコード盤で古くからお馴染みのもの。音の近さ・低音域の質感ではベストのサウンド。

Source 2・・・お馴染みミラードによるステレオAud音源(ネットではない)。音の近さ・クリアさではベストのサウンド。

Source 3・・・90年代に広く出回ったモノAud音源(ネットではない)。Source 1,2に未収録のSong Remainをノーカットで収録してため、同曲での採用頻度が高い音源。本盤でもSong Remainや曲間の補填などで採用されている。本音源は音質では劣るが歓声や拍手などからSource2のミラード音源に極めて近いポジションで捉えられた音源であることが分かる。

Source 4・・・90年代に広く出回った音源モノAud(ネットではない)。Source 3と混同される場合が多いですが違います。既発旧タラ、ARMS盤などでNQ以降で使われていた音源。今回も曲間カットの補填に若干採用されている。

Source 5・・・近年流通したと思われるモノAud音源。音質は最も厳しく収録時間も80分に満たないもの。今回は採用されていない。

Source 6・・・近年流通したと思われるサウンドボード音源でギターソロ部の抜粋音源のみが現在確認されている。本盤ではボーナス収録。


1-3枚目のアナログLPメインの部分はアナログLPからダイレクトにデジタル化されております。音質的には同日の音源としてはミラードのソース2に次ぐ高音質音源にもかかわらず、良いCDには恵まれておらず、アナログLPからのダイレクトCD化となるとネット音源を除くと実に久々。過去にもアナログ盤からのデジタル化はある事にはありましたが、スクラッチが多大だったり、ノイズリダクションが掛かりすぎて鮮度が落ちていたり、あるいは編集がもう一息のネット音源だったりと、どれも今一歩のものばかりで決定的なタイトルのない状態でしたが、今回遂にアナログLPをベースにしたベストバージョンが登場です。アナログLPは「LZ 1234」と「LZ 7」のぞれぞれ2LPで2タイトルに分けて当時リリースされ、「LZ 1234」の方は収録内容が若干増えた状態でオリジナル再発されており、今回も「LZ 1234」の部分はその再発の方からデジタル化されています。スクラッチノイズは今回もピンポイントで丁寧に除去されており、膜を張ったり、音をコモらすような旧来の処理はなされていませんので、原盤LPの素晴らしい鮮度を保ったままスクラッチノイズだけが丁寧に除去されています。

欠落部の補填は極めて丁寧に行われ、今まで見逃されていた欠落も曲間に至るまで丁寧にフォローされています。補填要員はソース2のミラード音源(ネットではない)で、それでも足りない箇所はソース3、ソース4(ともにネットではない)が動員され全曲完全収録が実現しています。アナログLP盤未収の”Song Remain”についてはミラード音源もないためソース3からの丸ごと補填でこれは既発同様のコンセプトです。また既発で見逃されてきたカットについてですが、”NQ”のCDタイム19:41付近はLP盤の面代わりによるカットであり、当然そこは誰でも分かる欠落箇所ですが、それ以外にもカットが存在し、CDタイム7:22付近にアナログ盤では20秒程のカットがあり、そこが今回初めて補填されました。それ以外の曲間部分についても、きめ細かく、かつなるべく違和感の生じないようバランスを重視した補填編集で完全収録が実現しています。ネットのWinstonなどとは雲泥の差の品質で伝説公演のアナログ・メイン・バージョンが最長で堪能できます。

ボーナストラックとしてアナログ盤「LZ 7」のラストに収録されていたLPの作者自身によると思われる短いメッセージを収録。既発CDでも何度か収録されているもので、ライブとは無関係なものですが、やはり入れない訳にはいかないでしょう。


近年はこのミラード音源をベースに欠落部を複数ソースで補填するパターンがすっかり定着していますが、何故かミラードに次いで高音質にもかかわらず補填にアナログLP盤を使用したものは殆どなく(むしろアナログLP盤の方が良いと思う方もいるであろう、にも関わらず、です)、やはりスクラッチノイズ処理に躊躇するということなのでしょう。ちょっとした欠落にアナログLP盤を一瞬だけ使用するようなタイトルはEV盤やスコ盤などが近年もありますが、”The Rover – Sick Again”から”丘”にかけてをアナログLPを大々的に使用したものとなると意外にも皆無でした。アタマのライブイントロから”Song Remain”にかけてはミラード音源、アナログLP盤とも未収録のため、そこはソース3で収録するのが現状ベストであり、これは今回盤でも多くの既発盤と同様ですが、その後の”Since”に至るまでの3曲についてはこの日の音源でミラード音源と音質トップを争うアナログLPで補填するのが本来ベターな選択のはず。よってこの4-6枚目は初めて補填にアナログLP盤を大々的に取り入れたミラード音源ベースでセカンドソースがアナログLPの決定盤となります。このアナログLP盤の”Sick Again”、”Nobody’s Fault”、”丘”をソース3で補填している既発の近年タイトルで聞き比べれば、音像の大きさ・演奏の近さ・音の解像度・音圧など、どれもがアナログLP盤の方が圧倒的に上回っており、今回の編集に大いに納得されることでしょう。もっとも、このできる限りベターな選択による編集の結果、今回のCD1枚目の序盤とCD4枚目の序盤では収録内容が同じものとなっておりますので、ご了承下さい。”丘”演奏後の曲間編集部からCD1枚目とCD4枚目でそれぞれ異なる編集となりますので、その違いと比べると、これまた面白いものとなるでしょう。




ちなみに「LZ 1234」(ジミーの絵柄)は今回CDの中身同様にオリジナル再発盤ジャケをベースに、文字配置と色をCDケース向けにアレンジしたもの。1st イシューLPではZEPPELINの「Z」の上に隙間がなく、また絵柄下端のトリミングが再発盤ジャケとは異なり「LZ 1234」文字とジミーの写真下端が1st イシューLPジャケでは揃っていますが、オリジナル再発では絵柄と「LZ 1234」文字の下端に段差があります(情報thanks)。
