Recorded the long beach performance on June 27, 1972 with a good quality monaural audience recording for 2 hours and 28 minutes. Speaking of audience recording of this day, including the monaural source that was mainly recorded on “Wild Beach Party” (LED NOTE) released on CD in the 90’s, in recent years it has been recorded for about 100 minutes in total, but high sound quality “How The West Was, Too!”, Which was uploaded on the net by stereo recording, is famous, but compared to those already released with many omissions, the sound quality is inferior, but it was recorded for a long time from the cheering part before the start of the live to the end. Therefore, this “Source 2” can be said to be a version that enthusiasts cannot ignore. For example, Drone (Intro) at the beginning is recorded for 2 minutes and 35 seconds, Immigrant Song is also recorded from the head uncut, and the point is that you can enjoy the unrecorded part with another source that has already been released. At the beginning, it sounds like a dango, but after the sound has settled down, for example, after Over The Hills And Far Away, you can enjoy the live with a fairly “audible” sound. Sounds beyond Since I’ve Been Loving You are pretty big. There are some cuts and noises (Dazed And Confused etc. are cut off in some places in the song), but you can hear the lowness of Gene and the splendor of the unprocessed sound. So, I think it’s safe to say that it is one of the excellent sauces that enthusiasts can understand. Uses a treasured master provided by a leading overseas enthusiast, not online. It was not distributed on the net before, but in Angura’s real trade, it was distributed as “Source 2” next to the monaural source of the LED NOTE board, and the LED NOTE board Dazed And Confused and Rock And Roll The full length version of the source that was also used in. Here, we did not process the sound at all so that you can enjoy the master itself. It’s a pity that the pitch is high and the sound deteriorates at the same time, probably because the battery is dead from the last Whole Lotta Love, but other than that, you can enjoy it with a stable sound, so there is no problem in listening There is no (the latter two songs have been adjusted for the pitch when this CD was made. Whole Lotta Love has been recorded for 28 minutes, but the last was cut out from the beginning). Please add the longest version of the climax live “Second Source”, which you can listen to on the official live board “HOW THE WEST WAS WON”, to your collection.


1972年6月27日のロング・ビーチ公演を、良質なモノラル・オーディエンス録音で2時間28分に渡って収録。この日のオーディエンス録音と言えば90年代にCDリリースされた「Wild Beach Party」(LED NOTE)にメインで収録されたモノラル・ソースをはじめ、ごく近年になりトータル100分程の収録時間ながら高音質ステレオ録音でネット上にアップされた「How The West Was, Too!」が有名ですが、欠落の多いそれら既発に比べ、音質は劣るもののライブ開始前の歓声部分から最後まで長時間収録されていることで、この「ソース2」はマニアには無視できないヴァージョンと言えるでしょう。例えば冒頭のDrone(Intro)は2分35秒収録、Immigrant Songもノーカットで頭から収録されるなど、既発の別ソースでは未収録部分を堪能できるのがポイントです。冒頭はダンゴ調に聴こえますが、音が落ち着いてから、例えばOver The Hills And Far Away以降は、かなり「聴ける」音でライヴを楽しめます。Since I’ve Been Loving Youより先のサウンドは、なかなか大したものです。一部、カットやノイズが散見される部分もありますが(Dazed And Confused等は曲中で何か所も切れます。)、ジェネの低さ・未加工な音の素晴らしさは一聴して判りますので、マニアにはご、納得頂ける、優良ソースのひとつと断じて良いのではないでしょうか。ネットではなく、海外の有力なマニアからの提供を受けた秘蔵マスターを使用。ネット上では以前は流通してませんでしたが、アングラのリアルトレードではLED NOTE盤のモノラルソースに次ぐ「ソース2」として流通していたもので、そのLED NOTE盤のDazed And ConfusedやRock And Rollにも使用されていたソースの全長版。ここではマスターそのものを楽しんで頂くために、音の加工は一切行いませんでした。最後のWhole Lotta Loveからは電池切れのせいか、元はピッチも高めで同時に音が劣化してしまうのが残念ですが、それ以外は、安定したサウンドで楽しめますので、試聴には何の問題もありません(この後半2曲は今回のCD化に際し、ピッチは補整しました。28分も収録しているWhole Lotta Loveですが、元からラストがカットアウト)。公式ライヴ盤「HOW THE WEST WAS WON」でも聴ける、絶頂期ライヴの最長版「セカンドソース」を是非、コレクションに加えて下さい。
