「TEMPLE OF ROCK」アメリカツアーでは、マイケルが約20年ぶりにロビン・マッコーリーと本格的な共演が実現。世界中のマニアの間で“McAULEY SCHENKER GROUPの再来”と大きな話題になりました。本作はそんなツアー中盤「3月1日リバティビル公演」を最上級クオリティのオーディエンス映像で完全収録! ライヴの回数を重ねてより一体感と安定感を増したバンドの演奏を、106分間に渡りたっぷりと楽しめる逸品です。

この「TEMPLE OF ROCK」アメリカツアーからは、2月24日のカリフォルニア州コロナ公演を“客席最前列から最高の迫力とクリアさ”で収録した「TEMPLE OF ROCK IN CALIFORNIA」が定番として愛されています。しかし、本作もまた、その大傑作と同じくらいの傑作。画面のクリアさもサウンドの迫力も、現代デジタル映像ならではの素晴らしさ全開。照明が効果的に入る「Another Piece Of Meat」など見応えバツグンで、クラブギグらしい密接な臨場感が体感できます。これだけならば「TEMPLE OF ROCK IN CALIFORNIA」とさほど変わらない印象かもしれませんが、ベースのエリオット・ルビンソン寄りだった「TEMPLE OF ROCK IN CALIFORNIA」と対照的に、本作ではマイケルの近く(ステージに向かって右側)からのショットというのがオイシイ。前者では見えにくかったマイケルのギター捌きも、的確なズームを織り交ぜた構図でばっちり捉えています。
撮影ポジションが定まる「Armed And Ready」以降はギター・プレイが大写しになるなど、ファンには堪らない場面が連発。マイケルはSCORPIONSナンバー「Lovedrive」や「Another Piece Of Meat」でもノリに乗ったプレイを見せており、キレのあるギターは全盛期の’80年代ばり。さらに「Let Sleeping Dogs Lie」や「Love To Love」ではマイケルにエリオット、サイドギターのウェイン・ファインドレイが絶妙なコンビネーションを見せるなど、映像ならではの見所もいっぱいです。
マイケルを支えるロビンは相変わらずプロフェッショナルなパフォーマンスで、新作からの「Lover’s Sinfony」、ファンを喜ばせた「Save Yourself」でも安定したヴォーカルを聴かせてくれます。UFOナンバーも「Shoot Shoot」や「Too Hot To Handle」ではキャッチーに、「Love To Love」では叙情的にと、彼らしい個性を交えた歌唱を披露します。ライヴ後半は「Lights Out」「Rock Bottom」「Doctor Doctor」とUFOの名曲群が連発で、会場も大変な盛り上がり。マイケルの大代表曲ラッシュにまみれたショウを見事に締めくくっています。

先日リリースされた東京公演の「THE LAST TEMPLE IN TOKYO」に「TEMPLE OF ROCK IN CALIFORNIA」が付属したように、大阪公演の「DEFINITIVE TEMPLE OF OSAKA」には本作をボーナス付属いたしました。マイケル・シェンカーを復活させたマイケル・ヴォス、約20年ぶりにタッグを組み、80年代さえ超える名歌唱を轟かせたロビン・マッコーリー。後のドゥギー・ホワイトでさえ霞む2人による見事なショウ、忘れられてしまうには余りに惜しいライヴを、ぜひ味わっていただきたいのです。オリジナル・メニュー付き・ハイクオリティな映像と音質を誇る本作は、間違いなくマイケルの2012年アメリカツアーを代表するタイトル。公式作品では実現不可能な“オーディエンスならではの魅力”、思う存分にお楽しみください!
