The finest master series appearing one after another to heal the world suffering from the new corona pandemic. Introducing the Pat Traverse edition.
The movie “November 24, 1982 Rosemont Performance” is included in this work. It is the finest audience recording. The biggest point of this work is the superb sound up to shocking, but first of all, the position of the show. Speaking of 1982, the tour was carried out by a 4-person formation with Don Harris as the exclusive keyboardist. Let’s look back on that schedule.

● 1982
・ March 20: Orlando performance
・ July 28-August 27: North America # 1 (7 performances)
・ October 27th-December 19th: North America # 2 (21 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
<< December “BLACK PEARL” release >>
● 1983
・ January 6th-February 18th: North America # 3 (21 performances)
・ August 6th / September 10th / December 30th: North America # 4 (3 performances)

This is the 1982/1983 Pat Traverse. Completed the album “BLACK PEARL” in August, and started the tour without waiting for release. This work was the 10th concert of “North America # 2” before such release.
This work was recorded at such a show, but this is the sound that depicts “the finest” in the picture. If you listen carefully with headphones, you will notice the sound of the hall, but that is not a distance. The powerful core directly reaches you, and the sharpness is as detailed as possible. Especially Pat’s guitar is great. The nuances of the attack are so delicate that the angle of the pick can be felt, and the squeaking long tones make the waveform of the vibes stand out.
Of course, the other instruments are also outside the common sense of the audience, and the drums with a hard snare and the synths like the 80’s shine down. Even if all of them are approaching at once, they all overlap and boast vividness that does not mix. Actually, noise is generated in the middle of “Life in London” (site sound !?), and the volume changes (sometimes subtly), so it is not perfect. For that reason, pressing was not realized, but the basic sound quality itself is a permanent preservation grade.
The show spelled out with such a sound is like a challenge in the 1980s, with a keyboard included. It was a short 45 minutes because it was supported by AEROSMITH on this day, but the 80’s famous songs are concentrated in that time. Speaking of Pat’s live, the traditional version of “LIVE! GO FOR WHAT YOU KNOW” comes to mind, but this work is not so similar, let alone compared. Let’s organize the set here.

● Classics (4 songs)
・ PAT TRAVERS: Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)
・ CRASH AND BURN: Crash and Burn / Snortin ‘Whiskey
● BLACK PEARL (5 songs)
・ The Fifth / I’d Rather See You Dead / I La La La Love You / Can’t Stop the Heartaches / Rockin ‘

… And this is how it looks. Beethoven’s “The Fifth” started with a powerful impact, and a well-balanced group of “half old songs + BLACK PEARL half” crowded. Even in that classic, “Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)” is the only item that suffers from “LIVE! GO FOR WHAT YOU KNOW”. You can enjoy a really fresh show. Moreover, the ensemble that spins the set is also very 80’s. Don’s keyboard, which also participated in the album, was featured, giving Pat’s guitar and a five-minute presence. Especially the coolness of “I La La La Love You” which will become a standard afterwards! The world of “BLACK PEARL”, which is rich in variety, is being reborn dynamically with live music.
Pat Pat Verse who was confronting the new era “80s” with a new sound. It is a masterpiece of a live album where you can experience the scene with the best sound of the sound board barefoot. The best part of being in the underground is that you can enjoy putting at this time. Please thoroughly enjoy this work.

★ This is exactly the 80’s Dan Lampinski! ! This is the first sound quality to appear! ! “COVID-19 QUARANTINE RELEASE!” (Roxy Music last week, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins was awesome! …)

《12月『BLACK PEARL』発売》
 これが1982年/1983年のパット・トラヴァース。アルバム『BLACK PEARL』を8月に完成させつつ、リリースを待たずしてツアーを開始。本作は、そんなリリース前の「北米#2」の10公演目にあたるコンサートでした。
もちろん、他の楽器もオーディエンスの常識外で、硬質なスネアがキリッとしたドラムや80年代らしいシンセもキラキラと降り注ぐ。そのすべてが一斉に迫っても重なりこそすれ、混じり合わない鮮やかさを誇っている。実のところ「Life in London」の中盤でノイズが発生(現場音!?)したり、ところどころで音量が(微妙にですが)変化するために完全無欠とはいかない。そのためにプレス化は叶いませんでしたが、基本のサウンド・クオリティ自体は永久保存級なのです。
そんなサウンドで綴られるのは、キーボードも盛り込んで80年代に挑みかかるようなショウ。この日はAEROSMITHのサポートだったために約45分と短めですが、その持ち時間に80年代らしい名曲を濃縮している。パットのライヴと言えば、伝統盤『LIVE! GO FOR WHAT YOU KNOW』も浮かぶところですが、本作は比較するどころか似ても似つかない。ここでセットを整理してみましょう。
・PAT TRAVERS:Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)
・CRASH AND BURN:Crash and Burn/Snortin’ Whiskey
・The Fifth/I’d Rather See You Dead/I La La La Love You/Can’t Stop the Heartaches/Rockin’
……と、このようになっています。ベートーベンの「運命(The Fifth)」からスタートするのも強烈なインパクトで、「旧曲半分+BLACK PEARL半分」というバランスの名曲群が押し寄せる。そのクラシックスにしても『LIVE! GO FOR WHAT YOU KNOW』と被るのは「Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)」のみ。実にフレッシュなショウが楽しめるのです。しかも、そのセットを紡ぐアンサンブルがまた極めて80年代的。アルバムにも参加したドンのキーボードがフィーチュアされ、パットのギターと五分の存在感を醸す。特に後の定番にもなっていく「I La La La Love You」のカッコ良さ! バラエティ豊かな『BLACK PEARL』の世界が生演奏で一層ダイナミックに生まれ変わっているのです。
★まさに80年代のダン・ランピンスキー!!完全初登場にしてこの音質!!恐るべし “COVID-19 QUARANTINE RELEASE!”(先週のロキシー・ミュージック、ピーター・ガブリエル、フィル・コリンズも凄かった!・・・)
