Large decision sound of Randy Rhoads era is the revival in the rainy day upgrade! This work, audience album that contains the the previous two months that Randy’s death, “January 22, Milwaukee performances in 1982”. Old in a large classic about some era, which has been trading as a sound board, is shining in recording history record as the name sound source to tell the end of the short Randy era at the highest sound. Only, some of its outstanding exists, release among them in 2010 “master direct version” as the press CD “ANGEL & DEMON” is known for a long time. “Anymore, quality no more there can be no” has been extremely well received with. Master freshness of also “ANGEL & DEMON” listening now, is a thing which I can only imagine perfect, but had appeared this time elaborate elaboration is Koamania overseas “remastered version”. Was described to the “more is not” “ANGEL & DEMON” beyond I had realized.
Before you introduce a mania whole body of mastering, also for the first one, this sound source is let’s talk be how important. Studio album in two “BLIZZARD OF OZZ” “DIARY OF A MADMAN” the left behind was Randy era, tour there was only about one and a half years. Here, including members of non-Ozzy & Randy, are summarized in the simple and ….

– September 3, 1980 over November 1: UK tour (34 performances)
(B Deizuri, L Kasureiku, L Bridgewater)
– April 22, 1981 over September 13: North American tour # 1 (92 performances) + UK 1 performance
(R Sazo, T Aldridge, L Bridgewater)

– November 5, 1981 over December 2: The European tour (10 performances)
(R Sazo, T Aldridge, L Bridgewater)
– December 30, 1981 over March 18, 1982: North American tour # 2 (46 performances)
(R Sazo, T Aldridge, D Ailey)

It is a total of more than 183 performances. Of these, speaking as a representative sound of Randy era, Cleveland 81 and Montreal 81 became the original “TRIBUTE”, such as New York 81 that have been unearthed in deluxe edition of “DIARY OF A MADMAN”, most of the “North American tour # 1 They are concentrated in “. A small number of times, “UK · European Tour” is also as not be helped, became a perfect star population obtained a Don Airey “North American tour # 2” ……… such a mania you want to listen to in a high-quality all costs, even to non heal our thirst, the has continued collecting tribute as “” DIARY oF a MADMAN tOUR “if First Kore”, “masterpiece of 1982,” “Randy era strongest audience recording” is, is this Milwaukee performances.
And, such a historic recording of “vertex beyond” is this work’s got to play a. Perhaps has become a base is seems that it is the same master as the “ANGEL & DEMON,” but, I, such that what Koamania overseas has been re-mastered by pouring plenty of time and effort and love. Treatments such as “ANGEL & DEMON” even perfect pitch and noise, but had been subjected to treatment to shine the best recordings, and repair until further disadvantage of the recording itself is in this work. Not miss a flip gap of milliseconds, to carefully modify the variation of the volume that occur at random, correction copy the other side if the lack of a single channel. It became beyond the apex of the through the work that is similar to obsession.
Its work, but we have over the whole volume, how about you “Diary Of A Madman” at the beginning will feel the most power. Things that the audience recording, the beginning of the show is not Yomigire is sound output, which a variety of trouble is likely to occur. Or there is music there is no relationship that was left on the tape in this recording, or fell one channel, volume arrive Hula. In the “ANGEL & DEMON”, but it also brought to you by the “Omoto recording of truth”, including, this work has been modified entirely. The sense of stability that flows through the “Diary Of A Madman” also from the left channel that had fallen especially daring, make me immersive nature and show without convincing “that?”. If you listen indeed with headphones, the moment you want to migrate from both channels the same (= mono) in stereo will be or know, but the discomfort is zero.
Representative sound source of the sound was revived in the “DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR” is, exactly paradise. Different from the “TRIBUTE”, “Diary Of A Madman” by opening “Over The Mountain” is, of course, the whole volume in the dance even touches it will likely fleeting melody dances broken Randy guitar, beautifully scattered one Don Airey vivid phrase is set up more prime the excitement of. Rudy & tough rhythm of Aldridge, not to say, show “All Star” have the appearance of Kira of precisely because they shine of. The is being poured into the ear in the direct sense of it is continued to be referred to as “like a sound board.”

I’m not getting my hands trying to Kakiatsumeyo the official and sound board “DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR” world. That precisely because the strongest record, will aim to “new heights” to not be willing to labor mania. Beyond this from the live scene of the ’34 time, though, precisely because there is a history that has been stacked in the meantime, carefully selected from among the many recordings, polished. Randy Rhoads is a site which was shining and vacuum-packed in this production 100% best, live album affection of mania that does not forget him for many years to shine. Still, if the person who loves Randy, should guests feel the glare. Put their feelings to the press, this weekend to your handy.

ランディ・ローズ時代の大決定音源が、まさかのアップグレードで復活です! 本作は、ランディが亡くなる約2ヶ月前となる「1982年1月22日ミルウォーキー公演」を収めたオーディエンス・アルバム。古くはサウンドボードとして取引されていた時代もあるほどの大定番で、短いランディ時代の末期を最高サウンドで伝える名音源として録音史に輝く録音です。古くから知られるだけに、いくつかの既発が存在し、中でも2010年には“マスター・ダイレクト・バージョン”がプレスCD「ANGEL & DEMON」としてリリース。「もはや、これ以上はあり得ないクオリティ」と大好評を博しました。今聴いても「ANGEL & DEMON」のマスター鮮度は、完璧としか思えないものなのですが、今回登場したのは海外のコアマニアが精緻を凝らした“リマスタリング・バージョン”。「これ以上はない」とまで評された「ANGEL & DEMON」超えを実現してしまったのです。
マニア渾身のマスタリングをご紹介する前に、初めての方のためにも、この音源がいかに重要なのかもお話ししておきましょう。2枚にスタジオ作「BLIZZARD OF OZZ」「DIARY OF A MADMAN」を遺したランディ時代は、ツアーも約1年半しかありませんでした。ここでオジー&ランディ以外のメンバーも含め、カンタンにまとめますと……。



以上の183公演で全部です。このうち、ランディ時代の代表音源と言えば、「TRIBUTE」の元となったクリーヴランド81やモントリオール81、「DIARY OF A MADMAN」のデラックスエディションで発掘されたニューヨーク81など、ほとんどが「北米ツアー#1」に集中している。回数の少ない「UK・欧州ツアー」は致し方ないとしても、ドン・エイリーを得て完璧なスター集団と化した「北米ツアー#2」は是が非にでもハイクオリティで聴きたい………そんなマニアたちの渇きを癒し、「“DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR”ならまずはコレ」「1982年の最高傑作」「ランディ時代最強のオーディエンス録音」と賛辞を集め続けてきたのが、このミルウォーキー公演なのです。
そして、そんな歴史的な録音の“頂点超え”を果たしてしまったのが本作。恐らくベースとなっているのは「ANGEL & DEMON」と同じマスターだと思われますが、それを海外のコアマニアが時間と手間と愛情をふんだんに注ぎ込んでリマスタリングしたものなのです。「ANGEL & DEMON」でも完璧なピッチやノイズのトリートメント等、録音を最高に輝かせる処理は施されていましたが、本作ではさらに録音自体の欠点まで修復している。ミリセカンドのフリップギャップも見逃さず、ランダムに起こる音量のバラツキを丹念に修正し、片チャンネルが欠けていればもう片方をコピーして補正。執念にも似た作業を経ての頂点越えとなったのです。
その作業は全編にわたっておりますが、一番威力を感じるのは冒頭の「Diary Of A Madman」でしょうか。客席録音というものは、ショウの冒頭は出音が読み切れず、さまざまなトラブルが発生しやすいもの。この録音でもテープに残っていた関係ない音楽があったり、片チャンネルが落ちたり、音量がフラつく。「ANGEL & DEMON」では、それも含めて“大元録音の真実”をお届けしましたが、本作はことごとく修正されている。特に大胆に落ちていた左チャンネルからも「Diary Of A Madman」が流れる安定感は、「あれ?」と思わせることなく自然とショウに没入させてくれる。さすがにヘッドフォンで聴けば、両チャンネル同じ(=モノラル)からステレオに移行する瞬間は分かったりもしますが、違和感はゼロです。
そのサウンドで蘇った“DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR”の代表音源は、まさにパラダイス。「TRIBUTE」とは違う「Diary Of A Madman」「Over The Mountain」によるオープニングはもちろん、全編でランディのギターも触れれば壊れてしまいそうな儚いメロディが舞いに舞い、美しく散らされたドン・エイリーの鮮やかなフレーズが感動を一層盛りたてる。ルディ&アルドリッジの強靱なリズム隊は言うに及ばず、“全員がスター”の輝きを放っているからこそのキラめくショウ。それが「まるでサウンドボード」と呼ばれ続けたダイレクト感で耳に流し込まれるのです。

オフィシャルやサウンドボードをかき集めようとも手が届かない“DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR”の世界。その最強録音だからこそ、マニアも労をいとわずに“さらなる高み”を目指してしまう。このライヴ現場から34年の時間を超え、いえ、その間に積み重ねられた歴史があったからこそ、幾多の録音の中から選び抜かれ、磨き抜かれた。ランディ・ローズが一番輝いていた現場を本生100%で真空パックし、長年彼を忘れないマニアの愛情が輝くライヴアルバム。今なお、ランディをこよなく愛する方なら、この眩しさを感じていただけるはず。その想いをプレスに込め、今週末あなたのお手元へ。
