A super live album will be released, which will be “the best masterpiece of the fourth year”. It is a release decision with perpetual preservation press 2CD.
The masterpiece is “Jul 08 2019: Selvesborg Performance”. It is a full audience recording when it appeared in the very famous festival “SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL” of Europe. This show also introduces the CD-R edition of the same title from the Shades label, but this work is neither a copy nor a remaster. It is a completely separate recording, and it is a super-super board of completely different dimensions. Also this week, “LIVE IN MUNICH 2019 (Shades 1064)” will be released simultaneously. First of all, let’s confirm the show position on the 2019 schedule.

・ June 6: Hyubinka performance
・ June 8: Performance at Selvesborg [This work] ・ June 12 “LIVE IN MUNICH 2019”
・ June 15: Performed in Malaga

The 21st Century RAINBOW has performed several performances each year since the resurgence of 2016, and all four of the above-mentioned performances in 2019. Every year, I have put most of the shows into a live album with the highest quality, but somehow the excavation situation is not good this year. Even though the final show has already been completed, only two shows have a full recording. And this work is a masterless transcendent master among them, and those mania in the world admit to the same sound as “the top recording of 2019”. It can not be said that there is a possibility that the excavation situation will be dramatically improved in the future, but as far as the current situation is concerned, a record beyond this work will probably not appear.
Such this work is the very best sound with “super”. Compared to the Shades label board released earlier … Wonderful also become stupid. No, the Shades board was also a masterpiece audience recording more than usual, but the horizon to stand is completely different. The sound that used the famous machine “Schopes MK41” that the world’s record makers admit is just clear on. The strat sound has a sense of distance and the core jumps in, and the sound is satirical and glossy. Even if Ronnie Romero’s voice is super tight, it’s not only a single word of lyrics but also a single syllable nuance. I searched for evidence of Odins with all my strength, and finally I thought it was “I think there’s a slight sense of bouiboboa in the sound of the bass …” so it’s a name recording that is so far away from the customer record.
Collectors all over the world are strikingly colored to such a sound, but this work is brushing up such original sound further. We have fine-tuned over the whole range and whole range, but it is the bass that feels the most difference. I mentioned the only sense of customer record as “the base’s feeling of bois bois”, but that has also been thoroughly improved. The wonder is obvious. The details of the outline and the texture are completely different. When I analyze it carefully, a solid core is carved in the sound of bloated heavy bass, and the vibes was left in detail. In this work, I picked up the delicate vive, separated it after suppressing boar boar ringing, and let only the core float. As a result, the bass is not only squeezing the line, but also the vibe of one note and one note spinning the melody. It succeeded in drawing a rhythmic unit that was delicate enough to feel the vibration of the strings, and danced violently.
That’s why the sound that has been beaten brings out the potential of the original sound to the limit. Originally the base was apart from the audience, but the base has also been improved, and the overall work has been well-balanced, as if it were a soundboard. It is not the roughness of the excavated material, but has realized the quality that I think that it is FM broadcast or official board.

You won’t have to talk a lot about the show depicted in that sound. This year’s fixed set list (except that “Carry On … Jon” was added to the Munich show). The Strato Sound is the best of Blackmore’s best, and Ronnie Romero is a heroic show. If there is no change in the set, the most important thing is the sound. This work is a vertex live album of the ultimate quality that becomes the answer. It is hard to think that this year will be official, and perhaps this is one of the top 2019 RAINBOW tips. It is an imposing appearance in the permanent preservation press 2CD which leaves its radiance permanently.

(Remastered note)
★ Although super high-quality sound has been eased to make it easier to listen by easing the pitch range of the bass.

その最高傑作に収められているのは「2019年6月8日:セルヴェスボリ公演」。ヨーロッパの超有名フェス“SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL”に出演した際のフル・オーディエンス録音です。このショウはShadesレーベルから同タイトルのCD-R盤もご紹介しておりますが、本作はそのコピーでもリマスター再発でもありません。まったくの別録音であり、完全に次元の異なる超極上盤なのです。また、今週は『LIVE IN MUNICH 2019(Shades 1064)』も同時リリースとなる。まずは、2019年の日程でショウのポジションを確かめておきましょう。

・6月8日:セルヴェスボリ公演 【本作】
・6月12日『LIVE IN MUNICH 2019』

そんな本作は、まさに「超」の付く極上サウンド。先にリリースされたShadesレーベル盤と比べ……るのもバカらしくなる素晴らしさ。いえ、Shades盤も普通以上の傑作オーディエンス録音ではあったのですが、立つ地平がまったく異なる。世界の録音家たちが認める名機「Schopes MK41」を使用したサウンドは、とにかくオンでクリア。ストラト・サウンドは距離感もなく芯が飛びこみ、鳴りも色気たっぷりで艶っ艶。ロニー・ロメロの歌声にしても超タイトで歌詞の1語1語どころか1音節のニュアンスまで克明ですし、客録らしさが出やすいスネアも極太。全力でオーディンスの証拠を探し、やっと「ベースの鳴りにややボワボワ感があるかな……」と思うほど客録離れした名録音なのです。

そのサウンドで描かれるショウについては多くを語る必要もないでしょう。今年は(ミュンヘン公演に「Carry On… Jon」が追加された以外は)固定セットリスト。その極めつけなブラックモア・ベストを、あのストラト・サウンドが紡ぎ、ロニー・ロメロがヒロイックに吠えるショウです。セットに変化がないなら、最重要になるのはサウンド。本作は、その解答となる究極クオリティの頂点ライヴアルバムです。まさか、今年もオフィシャル化されるとは考えにくく、恐らくは本作こそが“2019年版RAINBOWのてっぺん”になるであろう1本。その輝きを永久に残す永久保存プレス2CDで堂々の登場です。
