From the 1976 Europe & UK tour that took place after the performance in Japan, London recorded the live performance of March 30th, which is the third day of Hammersmith Odeon, with a good audience recording. This is also a rare sound source of mania tears. The recorded audience recordings are still characterized by a stunt sound image, yet the unique clearness is sufficiently easy to listen to. Since we added accurate pitch adjustments to that, we reconfirmed that the sound source that captured Hammersmith Odeon’s live performance other than the 31st, which was rather shunned, was of a quality that was unexpectedly “listening”. please. Of course, this is also a distant sound quality. However, it is also attractive that the fulfillment of the performance on this day is firmly caught. The performance in Japan, especially the fulfilling performance that is different from the spectacular performance on the last day of Osaka, is the change of the tour. Neil Young’s live tour has a reputation for variety, but Hammersmith is different from his first visit to Japan and Paris. Such changes emerged from the opening. The beginning of this day was “On The Way Home”, which is very rare in 1976, and the brighter and more relaxed performance than in the CSNY era seems to be a 1976 tour atmosphere. Speaking of this time, the opening has a strong impression of “Tell Me Why”, so the rarity of the opening on this day stands out. In addition, “Midnight On The Bay” will continue to be performed following the previous day. But the most attractive thing is that I usually played “Cowgirl In The Sand” where I did “Down By The River”. Moreover, the result is also wonderful, and the set list and contents definitely give off a big charm different from the Japanese performance, a rare sound source that enthusiasts must listen to. Please get it!
そうした変化はオープニングから現れました。この日の幕開けは76年で非常に珍しい「On The Way Home」しかもCSNY時代よりも明るくゆったりとした演奏が76年ツアーらしい雰囲気ではないでしょうか。この時期と言えばオープニングは「Tell Me Why」という印象が俄然強いものですから、この日のオープニングのレアさ加減が引き立ちます。さらに前日に続いて「Midnight On The Bay」も継続して演奏。しかし一番の魅力はいつもなら「Down By The River」をやるところで「Cowgirl In The Sand」を演奏したことでしょう。しかも出来がまた見事なもので、セットリストや内容に関しては間違いなく日本公演と違った大きな魅力を放つ、マニア必聴のレア音源。是非入手してください!
