A masterpiece of history … No, it is the masterpiece “madness” of the human race created by rock culture. A masterpiece documentary that goes behind the scenes will be released as a gift.
Included in this work is the popular British program “CLASSIC ALBUMS”. This show features one by one the masterpieces that remain in rock history, and collects comments from members, producers, managers, journalists, and other people who know the time to unravel the scene. From the 1st in 1997 (by the way Paul Simon’s “Graceland”) to the present, 45 famous boards (53 including Dutch edition) have been taken up, and PINK FLOYD’s “madness” is, It was the 22nd.
This series was broadcast on TV in the UK and also commercialized on DVD. This work is a copy of the official product. . . . Not. “ROCK THE CLASSIC” version broadcast by a certain satellite broadcasting station in 2006. It’s a Japanese broadcasting version with subtitles and bonus videos unique to the program added.
If you have watched the official DVD, you probably know, but this program sets it apart from almost 100 documentaries. The content is overwhelming, not to mention the composition of one album. Even in the “madness” edition, we will explain in detail the historical background before the production, what we were aiming for, the situation of the composition session, the world of lyrics, recording, editing, and the history of the global blockbuster. Moreover, they are all interesting. It is easy to understand even for enthusiastic enthusiasts and is tailored for entertainment. For example, composition. Rick Wright reveals that the “Breathe” piano part is inspired by Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue”. There, Rick himself said, “The part that appears from G to E is the way you would normally play it.” “But it’s because Miles makes it.”
▽ What is even more intense is the mix work explained by engineer Alan Parsons himself. The person plays the multi-track while playing with the knobs on the mix table to reproduce the work. “Dave (Gilmore’s main vocal) only” “Harmony rides” “Frequency conversion effect added here” “And the band as a whole …” explained while demonstrating. If Gilmore’s real a cappella take was a shock, it would be too interesting to gradually change to a familiar sound. Furthermore, the current Gilmore and Roger perform live, and even if it is cyclo with the album, the taste is great. You can realize how the sound world is built up with “sound” that goes beyond theory.
Actually, such a mix commentary is also the highlight of the program through the series, but the “madness” edition is more than usual. Especially great is the sound effects section. Looking back at the time when Gilmore himself evolved from a simple sound in a synth at that time to a sound effect used in the album, and an engineer also sublimated it into music. “The sound of playing a string on a mic stand, footsteps, heartbeat, Doppler effect … it was difficult just to make the bell ring at the right timing.”・ Check the tape position and match the original sound on the 6mm tape. “” The timing position depends on the stopwatch. ” We casually listened to the finished product as a product, but how miraculous it is to form a song with a lot of sound effects snapping together. It will remind you of its awesomeness.
In addition, the scene when Claire Tory performed the legendary Scat in “The Great Gig in the Sky”, the blues version of “Money” played by composer Roger, and the secret story of Prism’s artwork. . No matter how much you like the band, the music documentary will be delayed, but in this work, there is no gap of 1 second and no boredom, and 1 hour passes. At the end of the main part of the documentary, “Time” of “PULSE” is added to Nippon Broadcasting. This work ends with the feeling that a masterpiece that has gone through various circumstances finally reached the stage scene.

”Crazy” is a masterpiece of 20th century music that goes beyond rock. It is a masterpiece of a music documentary that reveals the backstage. A wonderful piece that makes me want to thank Rick for the production of this program while he was still alive. Please take this opportunity to experience the valuable version of Japan Broadcast.

そんな本作に収められているのは、英国の人気番組“CLASSIC ALBUMS”。この番組はロック史に残る名盤を1枚ずつ取り上げ、メンバーやプロデューサー、マネージャー、ジャーナリストなど当時を知る人々のコメントを積み上げて現場を紐解いていくというもの。1997年の第1回(ちなみにポール・サイモンの『グレイスランド』でした)から現在までに45枚の名盤(オランダ編を加えると53枚)を取り上げており、PINK FLOYDの『狂気』は、その第22回でした。
このシリーズは英国でテレビ放送されたほか、DVDでの商品化も実現。本作はその公式品のコピー。。。。ではありません。某衛星放送局が2006年に放映した番組“ROCK THE CLASSIC”版。番組独自の字幕やボーナス映像も追加された日本放送バージョンなのです。
公式DVDをご覧になった方ならご存じだと思いますが、この番組は凡百のドキュメンタリーとは一線を画している。アルバム1枚に拘った構成もさることながら、内容が圧倒的に濃い。『狂気』編にしても製作に入るまでの時代背景や目指していたもの、作曲セッションの状況、歌詞世界、録音、編集、さらには世界的大ヒットへの経緯など、細部にわたって解説されていく。しかも、それらがことごとく面白い。えらくマニアックな話でも素人にも分かりやすく、エンターテインメントに仕立ててあるのです。例えば、作曲。リック・ライトが「Breathe」のピアノ・パートがマイルス・デイヴィスの「Kind Of Blue」をヒントにしていると明かす。そこではリック自身が「GからEに映るパートは普通ならこういう弾き方になる」「でも、マイルスだからこうなる」と、本人が弾き比べてくれるのです。
さらには「The Great Gig in the Sky」でクレア・トリーが伝説的なスキャットを披露した時の様子や作曲者ロジャーが弾き語るブルース・バージョンの「Money」、プリズムのアートワークの秘話などなど……。いくら好きなバンドであっても音楽ドキュメンタリーは間延びするものですが、本作は1秒の隙も退屈もなく、1時間が過ぎ去っていく。ドキュメンタリー本編の最後には、日本放送独自に『PULSE』の「Time」が追加。さまざまな経緯を経た名盤が最終的にステージの現場にたどり着いた実感をもって本作は終了します。
