Pink Floyd The best title of the super classic title of 1975!

The performance has been released in large numbers since the CD era, but the first release was probably the nostalgic label Flashback version (manma sheep jacket) or the Rock Calendar version, which was not widely distributed. Is it MOVIN’TIME “? It was around 1992 or 1993. At that time, it was the beginning of the CD release rush era, and those CDs were just one of them, and I don’t think they were particularly talked about at that time, but I can’t listen to them on other CDs. As a sound source, it is quite useful. At that time, when it came to live performances in 1975, it was an era where you could only listen to 3-4 performances on CD, such as June 18th Boston and April 8th Vancouver (it was a single piece without “madness”). .. Is it not until the 21st century when the Ayanami and Highland editions appeared that the sound quality and quality of the recorded contents improved? In the Highland edition “THE LATE GREAT MILLARD TAPES”, “Mirrored” was already included in the CD title here, and it was around the time when these were released that the naming of Mirrored became widely recognized by people other than traders. It is the view that it may be.

This edition has been meticulously remastered from the Mirrored Original Master, which was finally released in 2020, and is undoubtedly the best title at the moment.
When making a CD, first adjust the phase that was slightly out of sync and the pitch that was slightly lower.
As for the band adjustment, the sound quality is originally high enough and there is almost no problem, so the EQ adjustment is centered on the low and mid frequencies, but this is kept to a very minimum.

Also, in this original master, audio blur (slight tremors) due to aging deterioration were confirmed in several places, so the “Breathe” head of the “crazy” performance part where the blur was conspicuous, and “Breathe” The latter half of “Any Color” has been replaced with Millard’s 1st Gen Master, which has no sound blur. Fortunately, however, the 1st Gen master for replacement is of high quality comparable to the main original master this time, and since it has been finely replaced after adjusting the phase and EQ, it is connected. You can appreciate it without any discomfort before and after. Regarding the replacement in “Any Color”, it has been replaced from just before the cut point of the original sound source (Disc 2, 9th track of the main board, CD time 4:55) to just before “Brain Damage”. Since this cut part was often missing for about 2 seconds in the original master, the cut part is obvious because it was replaced with 1st Gen this time, but it is currently the longest recording state.


CD時代になって以降、多数リリースされてきた同公演ですが、最初のリリースは、恐らく懐かしのレーベルFlashback盤(まんま羊のジャケのアレ)か、あまり流通してませんでしたがRock Calendar盤「MOVIN’ TIME」でしょうか。1992年か93年頃のことでした。当時はCDリリースラッシュ時代の幕開けであり、それらのCDは、その中の単なる一タイトルであり、当時は特に話題になることもなかったと思いますが、他のCDで聴けない、「そこそこ聴ける」音源ということで、結構重宝したものです。なんせ当時は’75年のライブというと、6月18日ボストン、4月8日バンクーバー(『狂気』を省いた1枚物だった)など、CDでは3〜4公演しか聴けないような時代です。音質や収録内容のクオリティが上がってきたのはAyanami盤やHighland盤の登場した21世紀に入ってからでしょうか。Highland盤「THE LATE GREAT MILLARD TAPES」では既にここでCDタイトルに「ミラード」が含まれており、ミラードのネーミングがトレーダー以外にも広く認知されて来たのが、これらがリリースされた頃だったのではないかという見解です。


また、今回のオリジナル・マスターでは、経年劣化に起因する音声のブレ(微少な震え)が数ヶ所で確認されましたので、そのブレが目立った『狂気』演奏部分の「Breathe」アタマ、および「Any Colour」の後半部分などが音ブレのないミラードの1st Genマスターにて差し替えられております。しかしながら、幸いにもその差し替え用の1st Genマスターは、今回メインのオリジナルマスターに引けを取らないハイクオリティなものであり、また位相やEQ調整がなされた上で緻密に差し替えられているため、繋ぎ前後の違和感は一切なく鑑賞頂けます。なお「Any Colour」における差し替えについてですが、元々の音源のカットポイント(本盤Disc2、9トラック目、CDタイム4:55)のちょっと前から「Brain Damage」直前までが差し替えられておりますが、このカット部がオリジナル・マスターの方では2秒程度欠落が多かったため、今回1st Genで差し替わったことでカット部はあからさまではありますが、現状最も長い収録状態となっております。
