From June 1972 of the North American tour, the songs recorded June 9 Charlotte performances in high-quality mono audience recording. Celebration Day to be played in live early this day, the book can be found in the tour is only this day for now, also Stairway To to Heaven played before only passage in your play traditional songs Knees Up Mother Brown of the United Kingdom for example, by lightly played, you feel like that band itself is riding very well, but for some reason the end of Whole Lotta Love Rock ‘n’ roll medley is and may not be inserted in (which is also available for viewing, including a book tour and before and after the tour On this day only), has become a very large live far from the listening. Live this day is a live, which is the first time Onban reduction from getting into the CD era, but the past few titles released, it will be the release of about ten years except for the copy machine Surprisingly, this time release will just say the good news. As its outstanding title was recorded this live is said to be the best at the moment is “Charlotte 1972”. This title is the thickness of the natural sense of sound in the master that you obtain, excessive equalizing and sound pressure processing, such as impairing a sense of air venue has been as much as possible ahead on CD. Therefore, although you get the impression that was slightly Mokomoko When you listen to one, rather than the lean sound heard in seemingly clear that it was finished by equalizing processing, ideal in warm quaint, it is not tired listening natural, such as listening through the vacuum tube amplifier If you compare It has become a sound. If it is possible to listen than the already issued by increasing the volume, it should surely be able to experience its goodness is realistic. Also, although the Black Dog late 4:40 that sound is slightly larger from the vicinity of the same is true this time, and whether, but Chile Chile and the sound was distortion in its outstanding title is level over at this point, is paying close attention In this title, which is mastering Te you will be able to watch such a distortion with confidence from beginning to end without stress without. There is no doubt that this title was Onban of the best of the state, which is considered now to be sound quality in recording terms of content also becomes the new Ketteiban! Ideally package the fan must-have-permanent title the Charlotte concert is the release determined by the limited 2 Disc Press CD from overseas!

Than “How The West Was Won” was born in 1972 of the North American tour, which captured the Charlotte performance corresponding to the 4 th performance at the audience recording. Although at the moment this from tour only “Celebration Day” can be confirmed, the Jimmy Page is a take of Amsterdam performances of Brisbane performances and the same year May 27 of the same year February 29 that played in SG · W Neck difference, and only this day is played in unusual Les Paul as this time, it might be better, even if regarded as even more valuable live-take. In addition, Old song is “Whole Lotta Love” exceptional valuable Kiwamarinai live take even this time being played as a single song without being inserted at all. “Acoustic Tales In Charlotte (CSCD 10003)” or later, although it is sound source has become a neta also boot leg many times, this time good sense analog a hi-fi high degree of sound image and become such a mastering process in is subjected Because with that, it would not has become the best finish to people who do not like Donshari system sound. Press platen.

★ 2015 year-end, it is best title of ’72 Charlotte also have now.

1972年6月の北米ツアーより、6月9日シャーロット公演を高音質モノラル・オーディエンス録音にて全曲収録。この日のライブ序盤に演奏されるCelebration Dayは、本ツアーで確認できるのは今のところこの日のみであり、またStairway To Heaven演奏前にイギリスの伝統歌Knees Up Mother Brownをお遊びで一節だけ軽く演奏するなど、バンド自体は結構乗ってるように感じられますが、何故か終盤のWhole Lotta Loveではロックンロール・メドレーが挿入されなかったりと(これも本ツアー及びその前後のツアーを含め確認できるのはこの日のみ)、聴きどころの非常に多いライヴとなっています。この日のライブはCD時代になってから初めて音盤化されたライブであり、過去に数タイトルリリース済みですが、意外なことにコピー盤を除けば約十年ぶりのリリースとなりますので、今回のリリースはまさに朗報と言えるでしょう。本ライブを収録した既発タイトルとしては「Charlotte 1972」が現時点でベストと言われています。今回のタイトルは入手したマスターにあるナチュラル感・音の厚み、会場の空気感を損なうような過剰なイコライジング及び音圧処理は極力控えCD化されています。そのため一聴すると若干モコモコした印象を受けますが、イコライジング処理により仕上げられた一見クリアーに聴こえる痩せたサウンドではなく、例えるなら真空管アンプを通して聴いているような温かく趣のある、聴き疲れないナチュラルで理想的なサウンドになっています。ボリュームを上げて既発と聴き比べて頂ければ、きっとその良さがリアルに体感できるはずです。また、Black Dog終盤4:40付近から音が若干大きくなる点は今回も同様ですが、既発タイトルではこの箇所でレベルオーバーしているのかチリチリと音が歪みましたが、細心の注意を払ってマスタリングされた本タイトルではそのような歪みもなく終始ストレスなく安心して鑑賞していただけます。音質的にも収録内容的にも現在考えられるベストの状態で音盤化した本タイトルがあらたな決定盤となることは間違いありません!シャーロット公演を理想的にパッケージしたファン必携・永久保存タイトルが海外より限定2枚組プレスCDにてリリース決定です!

『How The West Was Won』が生まれた1972年の北米ツアーより、その4公演目にあたるシャーロット公演をオーディエンス録音にて捕らえたもの。現時点でこのツアーから唯一の「Celebration Day」が確認出来るが、ジミー・ペイジがSG・Wネックで演奏している同年2月29日のブリスベン公演や同年5月 27日のアムステルダム公演のテイクとは違い、この日はこの時期としては珍しくレスポールで演奏しているだけに、なおさら貴重なライヴ・テイクと位置付けても良いかもしれない。又、オールド・ソングが一切挿入されずに単曲として演奏されている「Whole Lotta Love」もこの時期としては異例な貴重極まりないライヴ・テイクとなっている。『Acoustic Tales In Charlotte (CSCD 10003)』以降、何度もブートレッグのネタとなっている音源ではあるが、今回は良い意味でアナログ的でハイファイ度の高い音像となるようなマスタリング処理が施されているので、ドンシャリ系な音を好まない人には最良な仕上がりとなっているのではないだろうか。プレス盤。
