Super-class shock! “US FESTIVAL ’83” full-size stereo sound board master, which was a major event in the century and was the world debut of Jake E. Lee, was newly discovered!

[Shock full version stereo sound board master] Anyway, I was surprised. Sound boards and pro shots have been known only for historical festivals that are so famous, but they are only partial. Even the boot leg that struck the “full version” was just what complemented the broadcast sound board with audience recording. However, this work is completely different. A new stereo sound board with a super-development of all songs and the entire story has been discovered. What’s more, you can enjoy a historic full show with a perfect master! Let’s organize the recorded songs here, how much they increased.

● Conventional FM sound board (6 songs)
・ Broadcast on TV: Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, Paranoid
・ Over The Mountain, Suicide Solution, Flying High Again

● Songs that could not be heard in FM (6 songs + α)
・ Diary Of A Madman (Opening SE), Drum Solo, I Don’t Know, Iron Man
・ First appearance: Revelation (Mother Earth), Steal Away (The Night), Fairies Wear Boots, Children Of The Grave

… and it looks like this. This show was broadcast, but only 3 songs on TV and 6 songs on FM radio. A few years ago, two more songs + α (Diary Of A Madman and drum solo to announce the start) were also excavated, but they were still incomplete. On the other hand, this work is a complete version that includes not only all the songs played but also the entire song. Moreover, it is not the case that such a conventional master has been used. Its quality is superb, and the mix is ​​different from FM broadcasting, such as a direct connection system and a great cheer can be heard only from the left channel, but all the instruments intrude into the brain with Zukazuka and the sense of close contact is tremendous . No longer even “official class” words, the full show of about 70 minutes is pierced with the highest sound of the sound board directly connected to the mix table.
Now only for that master, enthusiasts from all over the world are noisy at this moment, but this work also has a feeling of work. Basically, the true sound of the shock master is not touched, but the pitch is adjusted accurately and the sound pressure is adjusted. Only optimized for playback on home audio.

[Super performance with an extremely rare “Sabbath song played by Jake”] The show drawn with such a transcendent sound is a furious ensemble of five people who will create the famous board “Meet the Moon”. In order to explain the contents, let’s first look back at the time when the change of members was intense.

● 1983 《Jake Joined》
・ January 12-30: Europe # 1 (13 shows)
《Bridgewater → Alley change》
・ February 11-April 5: North America # 1 (34 performances)
《Costa → Daily Change》
・ May 29: US FESTIVAL ← ★ here ★
《Aldrich → Apis change》
《November 15 “Barking on the Moon” release》
・ November 10-December 22: Europe # 2 (32 performances)
● 1984
・ January 10-February 20: North America # 2 (31 performances)
《Apis → Aldrich Change》
・ March 3-June 10: North America # 3 (61 performances) ← * Official video
・ June 28-July 7: Japan (8 performances) ← 2 types of outflow SBD
・ August 4: Puerto Rico
・ August 18-September 2: Europe # 3 (5 performances)
● 1985
・ January 16 + 19: ROCK IN RIO (2 performances) ← * Long Pro Shot

This is the flow from 1983 to 1985, which can be called the “early Jake era”. Even after joining Jake, various musicians such as Lindsey Bridgewater, Don Costa, and Carmine Apis were still involved. Speaking of the five members of “Meet the Moon”, there are a lot of classics such as the official video of Salt Lake City, the sound board of the Japanese performance “DEFINITIVE BARKS” “BARK AT THE TOKYO”, and ROCK IN RIO. Are all released after “Want to the Moon”. The show that these five people went to before the album was released was “US FESTIVAL ’83”.
“US FESTIVAL ’83” is generally known as “Jake’s premiere”, but the real subscription was months ago. It wasn’t a “premiere” but just a “debut to the world”. So Jake is already fully accustomed to it, and even if it was Bob Daisley who joined just before “US FESTIVAL ’83”, the music was completely infused only by the originator. The excitement in front of a huge festival explodes, but an iron wall ensemble without any unfamiliarity explodes.
Moreover, the set is different because it is not a “Meet the Moon” tour, and all the songs are “Randy Era + Sabbath”. The relatively rare “Over The Mountain” and “Fairies Wear Boots” and “Children Of The Grave” that cannot be heard on the above sound board group can also be enjoyed with super-class stereo sound boards. In particular, two songs of Sabbath played by Jake are extremely rare sound boards only for this work that do not exist even during the “Sin and Punishment” era. If you are a mania, goose bumps will not stop with just these two songs.

Anyway, shock. Along with JUDAS PRIEST, this is a complete version of the historic “US FESTIVAL ’83” that made it known all over the world that this is heavy metal! This is the most important work for the music culture “heavy metal” beyond the dimension of Ozzy’s collection. It is a live album that will be a World Heritage site. No way to meet such a shock in 2019 … This is a press CD that will leave this shock forever!

★ Sound board “complete recording” is the first ever! This is the hard rock title of the year.

超ド級の衝撃! 世紀の一大イベントにして、ジェイク・E・リーの世界お披露目でもあった“US FESTIVAL ‘83”の完全版ステレオサウンドボード・マスターが新発掘!! もちろん無論、永久保存プレスCDで登場です!

とにかくビックリ。あまりにも有名な歴史的フェスだけに以前からサウンドボードやプロショットも知られてきましたが、それらはあくまで部分的。“完全版”を謳ったブートレッグにしても、放送サウンドボードをオーディエンス録音で補完したものばかりでした。しかし、本作はまったく異なる。全曲・全編が超ド級のステレオ・サウンドボードが新発掘。しかも、完全なる一気貫通マスターで歴史的なフルショウを味わえるのです! いかに大幅に増量したのか、ここで収録曲を整理してみましょう。

・TVでも放送:Mr. Crowley、Crazy Train、Paranoid
・Over The Mountain、Suicide Solution、Flying High Again

・Diary Of A Madman(Opening SE)、Drum Solo、I Don’t Know、Iron Man
・完全初登場:Revelation (Mother Earth)、Steal Away (The Night)、Fairies Wear Boots、Children Of The Grave

……と、このようになっています。このショウは放送もされましたが、TVは3曲、FMラジオは6曲止まり。数年前にはさらに2曲+α(開演を告げるDiary Of A Madmanとドラムソロ)の流出プロショットも発掘されましたが、それでもまだまだ不完全でした。それに対し、本作は演奏された全曲だけでなく曲間までもフル収録した完全版なのです。しかも、こうした従来マスターをツギハギしたわけではない。そのクオリティは超絶級でして、卓直結系らしく大歓声が左チャンネルだけから聞こえるなどFM放送とはミックスが異なりますが、全楽器がズカズカと脳内侵入してくるド級の密着感は絶大。もはや「オフィシャル級」の言葉ですら生ぬるい、ミックス卓直結系サウンドボードの最高峰サウンドで約70分のフルショウが貫かれているのです。


●1983年 《ジェイク加入》
・5月29日:US FESTIVAL ←★ココ★
・3月3日-6月10日:北米#3(61公演) ←※公式映像
・6月28日-7月7日:日本(8公演) ←流出SBD2種
・1月16日+19日:ROCK IN RIO(2公演) ←※長尺プロショット

これが「ジェイク時代の前期」とでも言える1983年-1985年の流れ。ジェイク加入後もリンジー・ブリッジウォーターやドン・コスタ、カーマイン・アピスなど、さまざまなミュージシャンが錯綜していました。『月に吠える』の5人と言えば、ソルトレイク・シティの公式映像や日本公演の流出サウンドボード『DEFINITIVE BARKS』『BARK AT THE TOKYO』、ROCK IN RIOといった大定番が溢れていますが、それらはすべて『月に吠える』リリース後。この5人がアルバム発売前に行ったショウは“US FESTIVAL ‘83”だけでした。
そんな“US FESTIVAL ‘83”は一般に「ジェイクの初演」として知られていますが、本当の加入は何ヶ月も前。「初演」ではなく、あくまでも「世界へのお披露目」でした。そのためジェイクはすでに完全に馴染んでおり、“US FESTIVAL ‘83”直前に合流したボブ・デイズリーにしてもオリジネイターだけに楽曲は完璧に染み込んでいる。巨大フェスを前にしたエキサイトメントが大爆裂しながらも、不慣れ感一切なしの鉄壁なアンサンブルが炸裂しているのです。
しかも、『月に吠える』ツアーではないためにセットも異なり、全曲が「ランディ時代+サバス」。比較的レアな「Over The Mountain」や上記したサウンドボード群では聴けない「Fairies Wear Boots」「Children Of The Grave」も超ド級ステレオ・サウンドボードで楽しめる。特にジェイクが弾くサバスの2曲は、『罪と罰』時代を通しても他に存在しない本作だけの激レア・サウンドボード。マニアの方は、この2曲だけで鳥肌が止まらなくなる事でしょう。

とにかく衝撃。JUDAS PRIESTと並び「これがヘヴィメタルだ!」と全世界に知らしめた歴史的な“US FESTIVAL ‘83”の完全版・超絶級ステレオサウンドボード・アルバムです。これはもう、オジーのコレクションがどうこうという次元を超え、音楽文化“ヘヴィメタル”にとっての最重要作。まさに世界遺産となるライヴアルバムです。まさか、2019年にこんな衝撃と出逢おうとは……。この衝撃を永久に残すプレスCD、ここに堂々の誕生です!

Ozzy Osbourne / US Festival 83 Upgrade The Video / 1DVDR / Non label
Devore, San Bernardino, CA, 29th May 1983 PRO-SHOT

Click Image To Enlarge

The main press CD is a new excavation of a complete stereo sound board that will be unprecedented. This “US FESTIVAL ’83” is also broadcast on television and its pro-shot is famous, but in fact, the pro-shot version has also been upgraded significantly in recent years. Therefore, a special bonus will be included so that both the live album and the pro shot can be collected with the “leading quality of 2019”.
Included in this work is, of course, the same performance as the main press CD “May 29, 1983: US FESTIVAL”. It is the outflow multicamera pro shot. As mentioned earlier, air check for TV broadcasting has become a classic since then, but this work has been greatly upgraded in both length and quality. It is a master version that has been excavated in recent years. First of all, how long is it? As I mentioned in the main part, let’s revisit the video standards here.

● Conventional TV broadcasting
・ Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, Paranoid

● Songs that were not TV (4 songs + α)
・ Diary Of A Madman (Opening SE), Over the Mountain, Drum Solo, I Don’t Know, Flying High Again, Iron Man

● Songs that have not been excavated (5 songs)
Suicide Solution, Revelation (Mother Earth), Steal Away (The Night), Fairies Wear Boots, Children Of The Grave

… and it looks like this. Not all songs have been excavated yet, but this work has recorded 7 songs + α (Diary Of A Madman and Drum Solo to announce the opening) except for 5 unexamined songs. Moreover, it is not only long, but the quality is different. Unlike the conventional TV air check, it is super beautiful. JUDAS PRIEST, who appeared on the same day, officialized “US FESTIVAL ’83” in the Deluxe Edition, but the official quality comparable to that. In addition, the sound is super high-quality stereo (the sound seems to be the same path as the main press CD). Actually, although the watermark of the excavation logo is big, the basic dimension is too different from the conventional air check that is mono and blurry (for some reason “Over the Mountain” “Flying High Again” “ “Iron Man” has no logo or counter and is fully official.)
The show depicted in that quality is truly a historic super performance. After all, “US FESTIVAL ’83” is a historic show that has transcended the dimensions of a huge festival and has changed dramatically for the music genre “heavy metal”. It recorded an enormous mobilization of 670,000 people in four days, and the featured Sunday was titled “HEAVY METAL DAY”, and VAN HALEN SCORPIONS, TRUMPH, JUDAS PRIEST, MOTLEY CRUE, QUIET RIOT appeared. “New music called heavy metal” was struck throughout the United States. Of course, Metal had made a foray into the United States before that, but that was just a story for “rock fans”. This big festival was infiltrated during tea by TV and radio broadcasting. In particular, the odd leather and stud JUDAS PRIEST and the evil visual image of the tattooed Phantom Ozzy had a tremendous impact. It was also a prey, but the reason I noticed them instead of IRON MAIDEN and BLACK SABBATH was that it was an icon that both males could communicate with during tea).
Talk closed. The show that can be witnessed in this work is such a historical show. With the first move of Ozzy, the United States made an eye on “This is metal” and Jake’s scratch guitar was directly linked to the image of heavy metal. Yes, the main press CD and the horizon where this work stands are not “Ozzy masterpieces” but “heavy metal symbols”.
The music genre “heavy metal” that caused a nuclear explosion immediately after this and expanded into the world’s biggest trend. The main press CD that allows you to completely experience the detonation show with a transcendental stereo sound board and the main work of the sight. A luxurious set upgraded to a completely different dimension from TV and radio broadcasting. Please enjoy it carefully.

本編プレスCDは、まさに空前絶後となる完全版ステレオ・サウンドボードの新発掘です。この“US FESTIVAL ’83”はテレビ放送もされ、そのプロショットも有名ですが、実は近年プロショット版も格段にアップグレードしています。そこで、ライヴアルバムもプロショットも“2019年の最先端クオリティ”でコレクトして頂けるよう、特別ボーナス付属決定です。
そんな本作に収められているのは、もちろん本編プレスCDと同じ「1983年5月29日:US FESTIVAL」公演。その流出マルチカメラ・プロショットです。先述の通り、当時からTV放送のエアチェックが大定番となってきましたが、本作は長さもクオリティも大幅にアップグレードしたもの。近年になって発掘されたマスターで、タイムカウンターも入った編集段階のバージョンです。まずは、いかに長くなっているのか。本編解説でも触れましたが、ここで映像基準でまとめ直してみましょう。

・Mr. Crowley、Crazy Train、Paranoid

・Diary Of A Madman(Opening SE)、Over the Mountain、Drum Solo、I Don’t Know、Flying High Again、Iron Man

・Suicide Solution、Revelation (Mother Earth)、Steal Away (The Night)、Fairies Wear Boots、Children Of The Grave

……と、このようになっています。まだ全曲が発掘されたわけではありませんが、本作は未発掘の5曲を除く7曲+α(開演を告げるDiary Of A Madmanとドラムソロ)を収録しているのです。しかも単に長いだけではなく、クオリティもケタ違い。従来のTVエアチェックとはまったく異なり、超美麗の超極上。同じ日に出演したJUDAS PRIESTがデラックス・エディションで“US FESTIVAL ‘83”を公式化していましたが、それに匹敵するオフィシャル級クオリティ。さらにサウンドも超極上の上にステレオ(ミックスから察するにサウンドも本編プレスCDと同じ経路のようです)。実のところ、発掘元ロゴの透かしがデカデカと入るものの、モノラルでボケボケな従来のエアチェックとは根本の次元が違いすぎるのです((なぜか3曲「Over the Mountain」「Flying High Again」「Iron Man」ではロゴもカウンターも入らず、完全オフィシャル級です)。
そのクオリティで描かれるショウは、まさに歴史的な超名演。何しろ“US FESTIVAL ‘83”と言えば、単に巨大なフェスという次元を超え、音楽ジャンル“ヘヴィメタル”にとって一大転換となった歴史的なショウ。4日間で67万人という膨大な動員を記録し、特に目玉の日曜日は“HEAVY METAL DAY”と題され、VAN HALEN SCORPIONS、TRIUMPH、JUDAS PRIEST、MOTLEY CRUE、QUIET RIOTといった面々が出演。「重金属とかいう新しい音楽」をアメリカ全土に叩きつけた。もちろん、それ以前からメタルは米国進出していましたが、それはあくまで“ロックファンにとって”の話。この一大フェスはTVやラジオ放送によってお茶の間にまで浸透させた。特に異様なレザー&スタッドのJUDAS PRIESTと入れ墨だらけの怪人オジーの邪悪なヴィジュアル・イメージはインパクト絶大で、理屈抜きで「ヘヴィメタルとは何者か」を見せつけたのです(後にPRIESTやオジーはPMRCの餌食にもなったわけですが、IRON MAIDENやBLACK SABBATHではなく彼らに目を付けたのも、それだけ両雄がお茶の間にも通じるアイコンだったからでしょう)。
