The most brilliant and spectacular Jake E. Lee period. That ultimate sound board album was born. Of course, it appears in permanent preservation press 2CD!

【Complete version which studied super famous sound board】
This album is exactly the ultimate live album. Its identity is the ultimate stereo sound board of “Kansas City Performance on April 1, 1986”. It is that complete board. This show is the most famous in the Jake era. It was a radio show on the famous program “KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR”, as well as a concert with the official video work “THE ULTIMATE OZZY”. However, the FBFH broadcasting was about 50 minutes of excerpt, and the official video was halfway thing mixed with PV of “Shot In The Dark”, “Lightning Strikes”, “The Ultimate Sin”. After that, though both the long version and the excavation version of KBFH were excavated, there is still no “Secret Loser” or drum solo. Boasting the quality and performance that became No. 1 even in the Jake era, the ultimate shape did not exist in any regrets.
It is this work that was born to heal such dryness for many years. Based on the premiere master of KBFH which is the longest and the highest quality among many formats, it complements the “Secret Loser” missing there and the drum solo with the official stereo sound board of “THE ULTIMATE OZZY”. Ultimate ultimate superb sound board album which finally can enjoy fullshow complete form was born.
In fact, the quality of this work is ultimate. As you can imagine from the fact that the official sound board is used as a supplement rather than the foundation, the pre-FM master which accounts for the most is the perfect essential official grade. Although it is before broadcasting, it is not an analog broadcast base plate raising, but a digital master who appeared in recent years. There is no DJ of the broadcast masterpiece, and conversely, the performance announcement full of mood is on the longest recorded. Of course, since it is a digital master, degradation is also zero. In addition, the latest mastering is also carried out for matching with official sound board in this work. We have aligned with subtle sound nuances to the official.

【”Sin and Punishment” SBD Complete Bonus】
Even the complete version of such Kansas City is the ultimate, but in this work I aimed even higher. As a bonus, another superb sound board of the other classic sound board “August 16, 1986 Donington Show” was also recorded. As a matter of fact, speaking of the sound board in the “sin and punishment” era, only two of the main program Kansas City performance and Donington performance. It is one that can complete complete version of the highest peak ever.
This sound board is also a big staple in the large classic. Although there have been many pre-episodes, this work is the highest peak. It is an unused broadcast master which was also used for the press 3 piece set “MONSTERS OF ROCK 1986 (Zodiac 192)”, but this work has further subjected to the latest remastering. Although it was quite a wild sound in the original sound, in this work it is adjusted to a neat sound that is close to the main volume Kansas City SBD. Not only is it easier to listen to, but it has a unified sense even when listening through the complete official standards.

【Ultimate Show Suitable for Ultimate Quality】
What is drawn with such quality is the top of the Jake era when Ozzy’s career also released a distinctive radiance. Since it is a good opportunity, let’s confirm the position from the whole picture of “THE ULTIMATE SIN TOUR 1986-1987”.

● 1986
· February 6 – March 4: UK (20 performances)
“February 22” Sin and Punishment “Release”
· March 27 – May 20: North America # 1 (37 shows) ← ★ Coco ★
· May 24 – June 2: Japan (7 performances)
· June 10 – 17: North America # 2a (6 shows)
· July 2 – August 3: North America # 2 b (24 performances)
· August 16 – 31: Europe (MOR 4 Show) ← ★ Bonus ★
· September 5 – October 12: North America # 3 (25 performances)
● 1987
· February 23: Hollywood (Jake final performance)

This is the last world tour of the Jake era. The main Kansas City performance is “North America # 1” 3 performances just after “sin and punishment” was released. Although it is quite early, the point is that the “UK” tour is being held before that. While securing ensemble firmly, putting one break is not fatigue. Moreover, “sin and punishment” comes to the top ten in the nation which Ozzy became since “PARANOID”. The solo activity which had risen on the right shoulder is burning with the motivation for the national conquest that it will welcome the summit. And ogy is also in perfect condition because it is early in the tour. The bonus Donington performance also feels roughness, but the main volume of Kansas City is unquestionably voiced beautifully. It runs through the full show with a wonderful singing voice.
Of course, another star Jake is also great. From immediately after joining “BARK AT THE MOON TOUR” it was a bold interpretation of Randy Rose songs, but in this work the original is dignifiedly the main character. In “BARK AT THE MOON TOUR”, “Bark At The Moon” which was being played in the middle stage also served as a pole position which should be originally, and also introduced a lot from “sin and punishment”. In the official, PV “Shot In The Dark” “The Ultimate Sin” is also a real life live, “Killer Of Giants” unique to the originator, “Never Know Why” only for this tour, “Thank God For The Bomb” “Secret Loser “plenty. Jake ‘s technique, which was completely musical director from a guitarist, was sharp to the crisp, and the late Randy Castillo’ s groove which was also loved by MOTLEY CRUE is also rich. The ultimate form of “THE ULTIMATE SIN TOUR” which was the most brilliant and sharp even in the career of Ozzy can be tasted with full official quality.

Tomomi’s Iomi Sato, Randy of Fate, Comrade Zack of many years …… Ozzy buddies speak of these three people. But it was Jake E. Lee that shined dazzlingly than anyone, wholly different from those three. Unlike any other era “Jake era”, the 80s when Ozzy swept the world. Ultimate live album that becomes the vertex. Please enjoy permanently with the permanent preservation press 2CD forever!


本作はまさしく究極のライヴアルバム。その正体は「1986年4月1日カンサス・シティ公演」の超極上ステレオ・サウンドボード。その完全盤なのです。このショウはジェイク時代でもっとも有名。名物番組“KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR”でラジオ放送された他、オフィシャルの映像作品『THE ULTIMATE OZZY』ともなったコンサートです。しかし、FBFH放送は約50分の抜粋でしたし、オフィシャル映像は「Shot In The Dark」「Lightning Strikes」「The Ultimate Sin」のPVを混ぜ込んだ中途半端なもの。その後、KBFHの長尺版も発掘版も発掘されたものの、それでも「Secret Loser」やドラムソロがない。ジェイク時代でもNo.1となるクオリティと演奏を誇りつつ、何とも惜しいところで究極形が存在しなかったのです。
そんな長年の乾きを癒すために誕生したのが本作です。数々のフォーマットの中でもっとも長く、最高峰クオリティであるKBFHのプレ放送マスターをベースにしつつ、そこに欠けていた「Secret Loser」とドラムソロを『THE ULTIMATE OZZY』の公式ステレオ・サウンドボードで補完。遂にフルショウ完全形を味わえる究極の超極上サウンドボード・アルバムが誕生したのです。

このサウンドボードもまた、大定番中の大定番。数々の既発が存在しておりますが、本作はその最高峰。プレス3枚組『MONSTERS OF ROCK 1986(Zodiac 192)』にも使用された未使用の放送原盤なのですが、本作はさらに最新リマスターを施しました。原音ではかなりワイルドなサウンドだったのですが、本作では本編カンサス・シティSBDに近い端正なサウンドに調整。一層聴きやすくなっているだけでなく、完全オフィシャル基準な本編と通して聴いても統一感のある仕上がりになっています。

そんなクオリティで描かれるのは、オジーのキャリアでも独特の輝きを放ったジェイク時代の頂点。良い機会ですので、“THE ULTIMATE SIN TOUR 1986-1987”の全体像からポジションを確認しておきましょう。


もちろん、もう1人の主役ジェイクも絶好調。加入直後から“BARK AT THE MOON TOUR”まではランディ・ローズ曲の大胆な解釈が聴きどころでしたが、本作では堂々とオリジナルが主役。“BARK AT THE MOON TOUR”では中盤で演奏されていた「Bark At The Moon」も本来あるべきポール・ポジションを務め、『罪と罰』からも大量投入。オフィシャルではPVだった「Shot In The Dark」「The Ultimate Sin」も本生ライヴですし、オリジネイターならではの「Killer Of Giants」、このツアーだけの「Never Know Why」「Thank God For The Bomb」「Secret Loser」とたっぷり。単なるギタリストから完全に音楽監督となったジェイクの技はキレにキレ、MOTLEY CRUEにも愛された故ランディ・カスティロのグルーヴも芳醇。オジーのキャリアでも最も華麗でシャープだった“THE ULTIMATE SIN TOUR”の究極形が完全オフィシャル・クオリティで味わえるのです。
