PINK FLOYD’s last world tour “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR” is a superb stereo sound board album that can be experienced through the reprint. It is decided to release the permanent preservation press 2CD.

[Completely recorded sound board that allows you to experience the full tour
Included in this work is “Torino Performance on September 13, 1994”. It is a super-best stereo sound board recording that allows you to taste the whole picture with the highest quality. This work is a rare live album in itself, but it will become even more brilliant when you look over the sound source situation of “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”. The first point is that it is a “completely recorded sound board”. Speaking of “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”, the official “P.U.L.S.E” is the most important, but the official edition was a stunning musical work, but it was also an “editing edition” that was struck from 12 performances. Instead of enjoying the highlights of “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”, the set of which was changed every day, the live album that listened to the live performances of the once-in-a-lifetime life through the stage was lacking. Maniacs seeking “experience” and “sense of touch” have been involved in various recordings, but most are audience recordings. It was difficult to taste on the sound board.
”It was“ TORINO 1994 SOUNDBOARD ”excavated from the Ayanami label in 2001. A sound board that records Turin performances at once, and the superb sound that makes the quality inferior to the official work. With the appearance, it reigned as a live album representing “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”.

[“P.U.L.S.E” and the only full sound board that does not suffer at all] Another point of “TORINO 1994 SOUNDBOARD” is that there is no duplication with the official “P.U.L.S.E”. There are “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR” long sound board album “DEFINITIVE PULSE (Sigma 225)” and “EARLS COURT 1994 BBC RADIO BROADCAST (Sigma 221)”, all of which are related to “P.U.L.S.E”. It was an enlarged version of the official board or a broadcast version of the main venue. On the other hand, this work has nothing to do with “P.U.L.S.E”. To understand the situation, let’s organize the sound board situation of “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR” here.

《North America》
・ March 3rd + 23rd: Rehearsal
・ March 30-July 18 (59 performances)
《Europe edition》
・ July 22-August 16 (14 performances)
* August 17: Hanover performance * Adopted in “P.U.L.S.E”
・ August 19-September 11 (14 performances)
・ September 13: Turin performance ← [This work] ・ September 15: Udine performance
* September 17: Modena performance * Adopted in “P.U.L.S.E”
★ September 19-21: Rome * 2 out of 3 performances adopted in “P.U.L.S.E”
・ September 23 + 25 (2 performances)
★ October 13-29: Earl’s Court performance * 8 out of 14 performances adopted in “P.U.L.S.E”
* Note: The “★” mark is the show used in “P.U.L.S.E”.

This is an overview of the last FLOYD world tour. Although “P.U.L.S.E” has been extracted from various parts of the European leg, the Torino performance of this work is completely out of the meantime. In other words, all the songs and notes of this work cannot be heard in “P.U.L.S.E”.
Of course, you can enjoy “On The Turning Away”, “Take It Back”, and “One Of These Days”, which were different in the set and could not be heard in “P.U.L.S.E”. Moreover, this is a well-known performance in the entire tour. “ What Do You Want From Me ” with outstanding color of the raised guitar and backing chorus, “ A Great Day For Freedom ” where the guitar dances wonderfully while being wrapped in chorus in the middle part, the main theme stands up with trembling “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” is overwhelmed by the vividness that comes. “High Hopes”, a spacey sound image that spreads to the top, bottom, left, and right, even after moving to disk 2, the SE of the register flies from the left and right, the membrane instrument “Kazoo” is also vivid “Money”, and the sound disappears Listen to the last lyrics “we fall… ♪” for about 40 seconds (!!) in the delay process, “Hey You”, the squealing sound of the car tires “Run Like Hell”, etc. The power of the stereo sound board explodes in the whole volume and all songs.

[Permanent preservation press with the highest peak ever] This work is the best in history of such a wonderful Torino sound board. Using the best existing master, polished the entire volume with precise and meticulous remastering. “TORINO 1994 SOUNDBOARD” and others already had a “One Of These Days” sound skip, but it was also completely restored. The completeness of the iron wall with no pitch or shaking is natural, but there is no excessive equalization that pollutes the superb taste of the original sound. “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR” is a live album of the highest peak that keeps the sound of perfection and naturalness to the last, but only the perfection. Actually, I tried to re-master again at the time of this reprint, but any equalizing was only a snake foot and there was no way to add it.
”The treasure of“ THE DIVISION BELL TOUR ”, which was born in 2014 and sold out of stock in an instant. “P.U.L.S.E” is a completely separate performance, and it is a unique and superb stereo sound board album that allows you to fully experience one full show. A great heritage board of cultural heritage that allows you to fully enjoy the last tour of the great PINK FLOYD. That is the permanent preservation press 2CD that has the same value as “Pair” and “P.U.L.S.E”. Here is a magnificent reproduction.

PINK FLOYD最後のワールド・ツアー“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”を通し体験できる超極上ステレオサウンドボード・アルバムが復刻。永久保存プレス2CDでリリース決定です。

そんな本作に収められているのは「1994年9月13日トリノ公演」。その全貌を最高峰クオリティで一気貫通に味わえる超・極上ステレオサウンドボード録音です。こ本作はそれ自体が類い希なるライヴアルバムですが、“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”の音源事情を俯瞰するとさらに輝きが増す。第一のポイントは「完全収録サウンドボード」であること。“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”と言えば、何よりもオフィシャル『P.U.L.S.E』なわけですが、かの公式盤は見事な音楽作品である一方、12公演ものステージからツギハギされた「編集盤」でもあった。日替わりでセットが入れ替えられた“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”のハイライトがいっぺんに味わえる代わりに、一期一会の生演奏をステージ通して聴くライヴアルバムの醍醐味には欠けていました。その「体験感」「通し感」を求めるマニアはさまざまな記録にも手を出してきたわけですが、ほとんどがオーディエンス録音。サウンドボードで味わう事は難しかったのです。
それを叶えたのが2001年にAyanamiレーベルから発掘された『TORINO 1994 SOUNDBOARD』。トリノ公演を一気貫通に記録したサウンドボードであり、クオリティも公式作品に肉薄する超極上サウンド。登場と共に“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”を代表するライヴアルバムとして君臨しました。

そんな『TORINO 1994 SOUNDBOARD』のもう1つのポイントは、公式『P.U.L.S.E』とは一切のダブりがないこと。当店では“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”の長尺サウンドボード・アルバム『DEFINITIVE PULSE(Sigma 225)』や『EARLS COURT 1994 BBC RADIO BROADCAST(Sigma 221)』もありますが、それらはいずれも『P.U.L.S.E』絡み。公式盤の拡大版であったり、メイン会場の放送版でした。それに対し、本作は『P.U.L.S.E』とは一切関係がない。その状況を把握するため、ここで“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”のサウンドボード事情を整理してみましょう。

★8月17日:ハノーファー公演 ※『P.U.L.S.E』に採用
・9月13日:トリノ公演 ←【本作】
★9月17日:モデナ公演 ※『P.U.L.S.E』に採用
★9月19日-21日:ローマ ※3公演中2公演が『P.U.L.S.E』に採用
★10月13日-29日:アールズコート公演 ※14公演中8公演が『P.U.L.S.E』に採用

もちろん、セットも異なり『P.U.L.S.E』では聴けなかった「On The Turning Away」「Take It Back」「One Of These Days」も楽しめる。しかも、これがツアー全体でも名演として知られるもの。浮き出たギターとバックアップするコーラスの色彩感が抜群の「What Do You Want From Me」、中間部でコーラスに包まれながらギターが舞う迫力が素晴らしい「A Great Day For Freedom」、メインテーマが震えながら立ち上がってくる鮮烈さに圧倒される「Shine On You Crazy Diamond」。ディスク2に移ってもスペイシーな音像が上下左右の音域一杯に広がる「High Hopes」、冒頭レジスターのSEが左右から飛来し、膜鳴楽器「カズー」も鮮やかな「Money」、様子も消え入る弱音まで聴き取れ、最後の歌詞“we fall…♪”がディレイ処理で約40秒間(!!)も延々と残ってゆく「Hey You」、自動車のタイヤが鳴るスキール音も「Run Like Hell」等々など、全編・全曲でステレオ・サウンドボードの威力が爆発するのです。

本作は、そんな素晴らしきトリノ・サウンドボードの史上最高峰を究めたもの。現存するベストなマスターを使用し、全編にわたって精密・細心のリマスタリングで磨き込み。『TORINO 1994 SOUNDBOARD』他の既発では「One Of These Days」に音飛びがありましたが、それも完全修復。ピッチや揺れがまったくない鉄壁の完成度は当然でありつつ、超極上な原音の旨みを汚す過剰なイコライジングはなし。あくまでも均整でナチュラルなサウンドを保持しつつ、完成度だけをたかめた“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”最高峰のライヴアルバムに仕上がっている。実のところ、今回の復刻に際して再リマスターにも挑んだのですが、どんなイコライジングも蛇足にしかならず、手の加えようがありませんでした。
2014年に誕生し、瞬く間に完売・廃盤となった“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”の至宝。『P.U.L.S.E』とは完全別公演でありつつ、1回のフルショウを完全体験できる唯一無二の超・極上ステレオサウンドボード・アルバムです。偉大なるPINK FLOYDのラスト・ツアーを“本物感”たっぷりに味わえる文化遺産級の大名盤。それこそ『対』や『P.U.L.S.E』と同価値となる永久保存プレス2CD。ここに堂々の復刻です。

The main press 2CD is a super sound stereo board album that represents “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”. Unlike the official edition “P.U.L.S.E”, it ’s a great live album that you can experience through one full show. Originally, it is a super masterpiece that does not require bonuses, but it is also known that there is a complete video in this Torino performance. Therefore, it will be decided to finish the video work that further enhances the experience of the main press 2CD with “sight”.
That’s why this work is the same as the main press 2CD “Turin performance on September 13, 1994”. This is an audience shot. However, it is not just audience shooting. The sound is a single piece of the same transcendent stereo sound board as the main press 2CD, and upgraded to the ultimate specification.
As for the sound, I will leave it to the explanation in this volume, and the visual beauty that matches the superb voice is also amazing. This is a distant shot taken from the stand on the left side of the stage, but its master freshness is overwhelming. Although I think there is no doubt that this is a period video shoot, the dazzling image quality and vivid colors of dubbing marks and white line noise are amazing. Speaking of this tour, the feast of the light of the day became a hot topic, but the colorful lights praise the beauty as it was at that time, and the laser beam is also clear to the outline. It is a video specialized in the scale of the whole view rather than a member’s expression up, but it makes the spectacle taste regrettable.
In fact, the biggest highlight of this work is the dynamism of the light show of the century. Fantastic laser beam flying in “Sorrow” and “Keep Talking”, “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” staring at the giant circular screen, the production of “Comfortably Numb” where a lot of lights rotate on the stage, what on the stage Highlights such as “Run Like Hell” where the lights are fully open so that you do n’t know if you ’re doing. Furthermore, the feast of light is not only on stage. In “The Great Gig In The Sky” and “Wish You Were Here”, the lights of the lighters lit by the audience filled the venue, just like the sea of ​​light. This work can be experienced without taking the sympathetic shield of light, only for the stand seat shooting.

Even in the official video work “Marvel”, we were able to witness the production of “THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”, but because of the on-site video, we can feel how huge each one is and how the spectacle changed the space. One piece that realizes such a field experience with a superb view and a superb stereo sound board. Please enjoy it with “DEFINITIVE TORINO 1994” which is a cultural heritage class live album.

本編プレス2CDは、まさに“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”を代表する超極上ステレオサウンドボード・アルバム。公式盤『P.U.L.S.E』とは違い、1回のフルショウを通して体験できる醍醐味も素晴らしいライヴアルバムです。本来であれば、ボーナスなど不要な超傑作ではあるのですが、このトリノ公演には完全映像も存在することでも知られている。そこで、本編プレス2CDの体験感を“光景”でさらに増強する映像作品に仕上げて付属決定です。
実際、本作はその世紀のライト・ショウによるダイナミズムこそが最大の見どころ。「Sorrow」や「Keep Talking」で飛び交う幻想的なレーザー光線、巨大円形スクリーンをじっくりと見つめる「Shine On You Crazy Diamond」、ステージ上を大量のライトが回転する「Comfortably Numb」の演出、ステージ上で何をやっているのか分からなくなるほどライト全開になるハイライトの「Run Like Hell」等々など。さらに光の饗宴はステージだけでない。「The Great Gig In The Sky」や「Wish You Were Here」では観客の灯したライターの灯火が会場を埋め尽くし、さながら光の海のよう。本作はスタンド席撮影だけに、そんな光の交感遮蔽物なしで体験できるのです。

オフィシャルの映像作品『驚異』でも“THE DIVISION BELL TOUR”の演出は目撃できましたが、現場映像だからこそ、その1つひとつがいかに巨大であり、スペクタクルが空間を染め変えていったかを実感できる。そんな現場体験を絶景の視界と超極上ステレオ・サウンドボードで実現する1枚。どうぞ、文化遺産級のライヴアルバムである『DEFINITIVE TORINO 1994』と併せ、たっぷりと味わい尽くしてください。
