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!
