Miraculous recording of violence revived with the new master! It is an upgrade board of that daimyo board “MASTER OF CHICAGO”. Moreover, it is not just a remaster recurrence. While the recording itself is the same, an upgrade by a completely new excavation master. No way, that miraculous recording will be more amazing … ….
Suddenly “miraculous recording” · “Daimyo board” has been rebuilt, but this also champagne starved unless you know “MASTER OF CHICAGO”. Let’s begin with the basics. “MASTER OF CHICAGO” is a live album of “July 13, 1986”. It is a superb audience recording of Hoffman Estates performances outside of Chicago. When saying “1986” “Chicago”, there may be people recalling the box set of “MASTER OF PUPPETS” which was released the other day and CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG (Zodiac 052) of the name board audience the other day. This work completely different performances from them. First of all, let’s check the position of the show from “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” in full.

“March 3 Release of” MASTER OF PUPPETS ”
· March 27 – June 21: North America # 1 (58 shows) ← ※ Official box
· July 5th + 6th: Europe # 1 (2 shows)
· July 11 – August 3: North America # 2 (17 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
· September 10 – 26: European # 2 (13 performances)
“September 27: Cliff Burton died”
· November 8th + 9th: North America # 3 (2 performances)
· November 15th – 20th: Japan (5 shows)
· November 26 – December 22: North America # 4 (22 performances)
· January 2: San Francisco performance
· January 8 – February 13: Europe # 3 (26 performances)

This changed the world “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”. The Chicago show in the official box and “CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG” was “North America # 1”, but this work is “North America # 2”. It is a concert that is the third performance of that. And I recorded this show in Chicago and it is world famous taper. Not only this work and “CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG”, but also the famous board “THE ECSTASY OF ARAGON (Zodiac 004)” which put “RIDE THE LIGHTNING TOUR” in the ultimate sound is also a skill arm.
That sound far surpasses the previous work “MASTER OF CHICAGO”. Even at the intro and tape change places, it has been recorded for a few seconds longer than the previous episode, but that is just evidence of the new master. It is the sound that is important, this work is more violent direct sound clear several steps than the previous work! Although I thought that it was “a wonderful audience” in the previous work, the sunny crystal clear sound world of this work is something that can be called “a sound board” as it is. Actually, I did not feel the response from the halls as if it were close, as if I am in the same room as young METALLICA. The sound of the previous work improved as heading towards the latter half, but this work is furious from the beginning (the contact sound of the microphone at the beginning of “Battery” is the same as the previous work). Even the previous work, the same taper collection “THE ECSTASY OF ARAGON” “CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG” is overwhelming. “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” is also unprecedented furious recording.
The tremendous thing of the show which is whispered by that sound! According to the above schedule, Cliff Barton late in the age of life, the ensemble which “golden four people” has reached is ferocious. Growing with a lot of tours engraved, thoroughly wild athletes do not blur them. Although it is not as consistent as after joining Jason Newstead, it does not collapse even if it pierces rapidly, Mid has tremendous sense of heaviness that rocks the sense of five organs. Although it is a short set only for Ozzy Osbourne’s undercard, five of the 8 songs of the new work “MASTER OF PUPPETS” were brought to a large-scale, and there was the previous work “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, “Creeping Death” “Fade To Black “Dig into it. It is just a live album that concentratedly reduced “RIDE THE LIGHTNING + MASTER OF PUPPETS” with violent live performances.

Even so, it is terrible. Whether it is the official box, “CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG”, this work, why “1986 Chicago” is too too great … …. If you can hit such a fierce metal, then the music scene of the earth will change.
An audience album telling the truth of “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” that promised the great success afterwards and replaced the world. It is its highest peak sound board. Excellent quality that passed through, both performance and sound. It’s regrettable that I can write only “amazing” and “terrible” from a little while ago. Just like “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” if it is! Large upgrade album, please do not be shabby please!

暴虐の奇跡録音が新マスターで蘇りました! あの大名盤『MASTER OF CHICAGO』のアップグレード盤なのです。しかも、単なるリマスター再発ではありません。録音自体は同じながら、まったく別の新発掘マスターによるアップグレード。まさか、あの奇跡録音がもっと凄くなろうとは……。
いきなり“奇跡録音”・“大名盤”とまくし立ててしまいましたが、それもこれも『MASTER OF CHICAGO』をご存じなければチンプンカンプン。まずは、基本から始めましょう。『MASTER OF CHICAGO』とは「1986年7月13日」のライヴアルバム。シカゴ校外のホフマンエステーツ公演の極上オーディエンス録音です。「1986年」「シカゴ」と言うと、先日オフィシャル・リリースされた『MASTER OF PUPPETS』のボックスセットや名盤オーディエンス『CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG(Zodiac 052)』を思い出す方もいらっしゃるかも知れません。本作は、それらとは完全に別公演。まずは、“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”全容の中からショウのポジションを確認しておきましょう。


これが世界を変えた“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”。公式ボックスのシカゴ公演や『CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG』は「北米#1」でしたが、本作は「北米#2」。その3公演目にあたるコンサートです。そして、このショウを録音したのはシカゴ在住で世界的にも有名なテーパー。本作や『CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG』だけでなく、“RIDE THE LIGHTNING TOUR”を究極サウンドで収めた大名盤『THE ECSTASY OF ARAGON(Zodiac 004)』も手がけたスゴ腕なのです。
そのサウンドは、前作『MASTER OF CHICAGO』を遙かに凌駕している。イントロやテープチェンジのカ所でも既発より数秒ずつ長く収録されていますが、そんなことは新マスターの証拠に過ぎない。肝心なのはサウンドでして、本作は前作よりも数段クリアで暴虐なダイレクト・サウンドなのです! 前作でも「素晴らしいオーディエンス」とは思いましたが、本作のサッと晴れ渡ったクリスタル・クリアな音世界は「まるでサウンドボード」と呼べるもの。実際、会場反響をまるで感じさせず、若きMETALLICAと同じ部屋にいるかのように間近。前作は後半に向かうほどサウンドが向上しましたが、本作は冒頭から激烈(「Battery」冒頭にあるマイクの接触音は前作と同じです)。前作どころか、同テーパー・コレクションの『THE ECSTASY OF ARAGON』『CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG』さえも圧倒している。“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”でも類を見ない猛烈録音なのです。
そのサウンドでブチかまされるショウの凄まじい事! 上記のスケジュールの通り、クリフ・バートン存命時代の後期にあたり、“黄金の4人”がたどり着いたアンサンブルが凶暴。ツアーを重ねた成長が刻まれつつ、徹底的にワイルドなアティテュードは微塵もブレていない。ジェイソン・ニューステッド加入後ほどの整合感ではありませんが、激速で突っ走っても破綻せず、ミッドは五臓六腑を揺るがす重量感が凄まじい。オジー・オズボーンの前座だけにショートセットではありますが、新作『MASTER OF PUPPETS』の全8曲中5曲が大盤振る舞いされ、そこに前作の「For Whom The Bell Tolls」「Creeping Death」「Fade To Black」が食い込む。まさしく「RIDE THE LIGHTNING+MASTER OF PUPPETS」を暴虐生演奏で濃縮還元したライヴアルバムなのです。

それにしても、それにしても凄まじい。公式ボックスにしろ、『CHICAGO 1986 FIRST LEG』にしろ、本作にしろ、なぜ“1986年のシカゴ”はこうも凄すぎるのか……。こんな激烈メタルを叩きつけられたら、そりゃあ地球の音楽シーンだって変わっちまうわけですよ。
後の大成功を約束し、世界を塗り替えた“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”の真実を伝えるオーディエンス・アルバム。その最高峰サウンド盤です。演奏も、サウンドも、突き抜けた格別クオリティ。さっきから「凄い」「凄まじい」しか書けないのが悔しくて仕方ないほどのド迫力盤! まさしく“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”ならコレ!の大アップグレード・アルバム、どうぞ思いっきりブチのめされてくださいっ!!

The main press CD is also “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”, too! It is super powerful live album of. If there is something missing in that name recording, it is a “spectacle”. So, we prepared a representative image of Cliff Burton era as a bonus.
It is contained in this work “Uniondale Performance on 28th April 1986”. In the official work “CLIFF ‘EM ALL” also the audience shot “Master Of Puppets” was adopted, this work is its full version.
As you can see from the fact that it was adopted as an official work, the quality of this work is preeminent. The shooting from the arena on the right side of the stage, the zooming in which the members are displayed on the full screen is delicious anyway. Moreover, despite shooting frenzy arena shooting, the stability feeling that causes little camera shake is amazing. Apparently it does not seem to be using a tripod, how was it stabilized so much with a huge video camera at that time … ?. The freshness of the master is also wonderful, although it may be slightly mixed with “Nozi” sound noises at “Ride The Lightning”, etc. Even line noise does not occur on the screen, the coloring is also vivid. It is one piece that can be witnessed with the highest quality valuable records at that time.
Shows shown with that quality are covered with furious slash by young METALLICA. Although it is a short video of 52 minutes, it is the main seat of Ozzy Osbourne as well as the main press CD, and this is a full show. Only the super masterpieces of the slash golden trilogy “KILL ‘EM ALL”, “RIDE THE LIGHTNING” and “MASTER OF PUPPETS” are short strokes, they are stubbornly raging, furious and extremely dramatic.
Moreover, this picture is especially wild. Actually the uniondale performance of this work corresponds to the early stage of “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”. Concert that corresponds to “23 North America # 1” concert in the commentary of this volume. It is about 40 performances before the main press CD. If it is normal, there is no meaning to that extent, but this is a “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” where young METALLICA ran up the stairs of growth. I am accustomed to live performance with one performance 1 show, and I am drawing up my music and show. On top of that, the slash metal is the music of life that is the initial impulse. In the performance of this work, the fierce battle as it is delivered as it is “the future, Europe and Japan will conquer all the earth!”

And, again, the greatest attention is the vigor of Cliff. I wrap myself in denim bell bottoms and black tank tops, play a complicated line with explosive speed while hedbuns all the while …. The sight of “CLIFF ‘EM ALL”, the legendary hero can be seen in the full show. I wonder if there was a dense 52 minutes in the history of heavy metal …. It is a special image which boils until such thought. It is a 100% visual work of real life that can experience not only the ears but also valuable and intense “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” in the sight. Besides not only expanding the image of the main press CD but this work alone is a masterpiece representing the tour. Why is “DAMAGE, INC. TOUR” special? Why has this picture been loved for many years? Metal picture scrolls speak louder than the thousand words for their reasons. Please, please experience this opportunity.

本編プレスCDは、“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”でもコレぞ!の超強力ライヴアルバムです。それだけの名録音に足りないものがあるとすれば、それは“光景”。そこで、ボーナスとしてクリフ・バートン時代の代表映像をご用意いたしました。
本作に収められているのは「1986年4月28日ユニオンデール公演」。あのオフィシャル作品『CLIFF ‘EM ALL』でも「Master Of Puppets」が採用されたオーディエンス・ショットでして、本作はそのフルバージョンなのです。
オフィシャル作品に採用されたことからも分かるように、本作のクオリティはバツグン。ステージ右側アリーナからの撮影で、画面いっぱいにメンバーが映し出されるズームがとにかく美味しい。しかも、熱狂のアリーナ撮影にも関わらず、ほとんど手ブレを起こさない安定感が凄い。どうやら三脚は使っていないようですが、当時の巨大なビデオカメラでどうやってこれだけ安定させられたのか……。マスター鮮度も素晴らしく、「Ride The Lightning」等でわずかに「ジジッ」という音声ノイズが混じることもありますが、画面には線ノイズすら起こらず、発色も鮮やか。当時の貴重な記録を最高品質で目撃できる1枚なのです。
そのクオリティで映し出されるショウは、若きMETALLICAによる激烈スラッシュまみれ。52分と短めの映像ではあるのですが、本編プレスCDと同様にオジー・オズボーンの前座であり、これでフルショウ。その短い出番にスラッシュ黄金の三部作『KILL ‘EM ALL』『RIDE THE LIGHTNING』『MASTER OF PUPPETS』の超名曲だけがギュウ詰めで、猛速・激烈・超劇的に叩きつけるのです。
しかも、この映像は特にワイルド。実は本作のユニオンデール公演は“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”の初期にあたる。本編の解説でいうところの「北米#1」23公演目にあたるコンサート。本編プレスCDよりも40公演ほど前にあたるのです。普通であれば、その程度の違いに意味などありませんが、これは若きMETALLICAが成長の階段を駆け上がった“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”。1公演1公演でライヴに慣れ、自分たちの音楽とショウを練り上げているのです。その上に来て、スラッシュメタルは初期衝動こそが命の音楽。本作のパフォーマンスには、「これからヨーロッパも、日本も、地球丸ごと征服してやる!」の気迫そのままの猛攻が繰り出されるわけです。

そして、やはり、最大の注目はクリフの勇姿。デニムのベルボトムと黒のタンクトップで身を包み、一心不乱にヘドバンしながら複雑なラインを爆速で奏でる……。『CLIFF ‘EM ALL』のあの光景、伝説の英雄がフルショウで観られる。ヘヴィメタル史上に、ここまで濃密な52分間があっただろうか……そんな想いまで沸き立つ特濃映像です。貴重で苛烈な“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”を耳だけでなく、光景でも体験できる本生100%の映像作品。本編プレスCDのイメージを膨らませてくれるだけでなく、本作だけでもツアーを代表する大傑作です。なぜ、“DAMAGE, INC. TOUR”が特別なのか。どうして、この映像が長年愛されてきたのか。その理由を千の言葉よりも雄弁に物語るメタル絵巻。どうぞ、この機会に存分にご体験ください。
