マイケル・シェンカーの2013年最新ライヴが、極上のオーディエンス・マスターでここに登場です! 本作ではドゥギー・ホワイトをヴォーカルに迎えてのイギリスツアーより、4月14日のワーリントン公演を、サウンドボード・クラスの最高音質で完全収録。プレスCD化されても不思議はないほどの最優良ソースで、現在進行形のシェンカー・ライヴをたっぷりと満喫できます!

マイケル・シェンカーは、この春もドゥギー・ホワイトや、元SCORPIONSのハーマン・ラレベル,フランシス・ブッホルツらを迎えて(アルバムにちなんで、このラインナップは”TEMPLE OF ROCK”プロジェクトと位置づけられているそうです)、積極的なライヴ活動を計画しています。4月からは”TEMPLE Of ROCK & LOVEDRIVE REUNION TOUR”と銘打って、4月4日のロシア・サンクトペテルブルク公演よりツアーを開始。現時点で6月初頭までヨーロッパ各地をサーキットする予定です。そのツアー前半で中心となるのがイギリスでのライヴ。4月9日のストックトン公演から4月21日のノーウィッチ公演まで今回は12公演が行われ、各地でシェンカーのファンを大いに喜ばせました。
今回はそのイギリスツアーより、6公演目のワーリントン公演が、なんとサウンドボードも逃げ出すくらいの超高音質オーディエンス・ソース(もちろん完全収録)で登場! ファンにとって気になる最新ライヴを、最高級のデジタル・マスターで、余す所なく楽しめます!

ウルトラ・クリアに響き渡るドゥギーのヴォーカルはライヴの全編で魅力的。日本でライヴに参加した”Voices Of Rainbow”の時以上に調子は良く、彼らしい巧みな歌唱を聴かせます。特に流れるような「Armed And Ready」は絶妙。さらに自分の曲である「Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead」は、堂々とした歌いっぷりです。もちろんマイケルは素晴らしいギターを炸裂させます。切れ味のある「Another Piece Of Meat」やハードな「Assault Attack」、扇情的な「Into The Arena」など、ファンには堪らないでしょう。
選曲は公式ライヴ作品「LIVE IN EUROPE」に近い内容で、前半にM.S.G.が、後半にUFOの名曲がズラリ。要所を固めるSCORPIONSナンバーではハーマンとフランシスのリズムセクションが素晴らしいプレイを聴かせます。しかし前述の公式作品では未収録だった「Rock My Nights Away」は聴き所。ある意味オリジナルのゲイリー・バーデン以上にしっくりはまった、見事なパフォーマンスを楽しめるでしょう。
そして最大のポイントは、11月にリリースが予定されている新作「BRIDGE THE GAP」から一足先に取り上げられた「Horizons」です! アクティヴなギターとメロディアスなヴォーカルの組み合わせは聴き応え満点(ライヴ映えもしています)。新作への期待が一気に高まってしまう3分30秒です。
インストの「Coast To Coast」を挟んだ後半は、5曲連続でUFOの名曲が連発。キャッチーな「Shoot Shoot」に「Only You Can Rock Me」などで会場の喜びや盛り上がりをピークに導いたところで「Lights Out」が一気に聴き手をノックアウトします! バンドメンバーを紹介した後はライヴもいよいよクライマックス。メロウな「Holiday」に続き「Rock You Like A Hurricane」のSCORPIONS2連発。セット本編の締めは12分間もの「Rock Bottom」が飛び出します(もちろんマイケルのロングソロも絶好調)! アンコールでは「Blackout」と「Doctor Doctor」が、最高の盛り上がりの中でライヴをクロージングします!
