Sound quality difference in the tie of the original source also did what can be seen clearly. It is in it, it was also interesting that the official board of chipping and working process is seen through, but the degree of completion of this work is completely different dimension. Naturally as if it was almost through one source. That’s what, When the “complete recording of the sound board is out’ll have!” Is said, even as, you as likely to believe will be has become the perfect live album.

『永遠の詩』の究極・拡張版が登場です。ご存じの通り、現在のスタンダードは、2007年リリースの『最強盤』となっているわけですが、リリース当時も話題になった通り、『最強盤』でも「Thank You」が未収録でしたし、曲順も実際のコンサートとは違うものでした。追加された「Black Dog」にしても短く編集されていましたし、もっと言えば、「No Quarter」「Moby Dick」「Whole Lotta Love」に至ってはオリジナルの『永遠の詩』よりも短いほど。とてもではありませんが、“決定盤”とは呼べない公式盤の仕上がりにフラストレーションを感じるファン/マニアは世界中に存在し、これまでも数々の拡張盤が制作されてきました。本作は、その中でも群を抜く完成度を誇る3枚組なのです。
そんな本作を制作したのは、海外の超有名コレクター。LED ZEPPELIN研究の世界的権威として知られる人物です。先日、ギフト・タイトルとして『RE-EDITED: 40TH ANNIVERSARY VERSION』もご紹介しましたが、本作は、それとはまったくの別人制作の別物。ギフト盤は、オーディエンス録音まで駆使して愛情たっぷりに仕上げられていましたが、その仕上がりはいかにも“ファン・メイド”といった感じ。元ソースの繋ぎでは音質差もハッキリと分かるものでした。それはそれで、公式盤の欠けや作業工程が透ける面白味もあったのですが、本作の完成度はまったくの別次元。まるで1ソースで貫いたかのように自然。それこそ、“完全収録のサウンドボードが出てきたぞ!”とでも言われたら、信じてしまいそうなほど完璧なライヴアルバムになっているのです。
そのクオリティで仕上がった162分は、まさに驚異的。MCの一言に至るまで精緻に分析して繋がれており、耳に染みついたライヴとは違う展開にいちいち心が揺さぶられる。とても編集ポイントを挙げきれないほどですが、「Black Dog」は6分を超え、『最強盤』では短く編集されていた「No Quarter」も復活。「Moby Dick」に至っては『最強盤』の11:02はおろか、オリジナル盤の12:47よりもさらに長い「18:00」。同様に「Whole Lotta Love」も「18:49」に及ぶ。もちろん、「Thank You」も収録されたショウの完全版ですし、曲順も実際のライヴ通り。それだけの最長演奏に、編集痕も気にならず没入できる3枚組なのです。
