Robert Plant, which is said to be planning ZEP’s 50th anniversary surprise, whose behavior is attracting attention. Although the contents of the surprise are still in the darkness, his main activity is of course the solo tour. The latest image of such a plant is a gift release decision.
What is contained in this work is “Forest Hills Performance June 13, 2018”. It’s its finest audience shot. First of all, let’s check the position of the show in the 2018 tour schedule in order to know about his recent situation.

· February 9 – March 2: North America # 1 (13 performances)
· March 23 – April 8: Australia (9 shows)
“Join Brewery”
· May 26th + 27th: UK (2 shows)
· June 8th – 29th: North America # 2 (14 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
· July 17 – August 1: Europe (9 shows)
· September 8 – 23: North America # 3 (4 shows)
· October 26th + 28th: ​​BLUESFEST (2 performances)

This is the schedule which has been published to date. We had a tour of North America and Australia in the early spring of this year, but a member change occurred there. Drummer changed from Dave Smith to John Breeze, and again the national tour began. The forest · hills performance of this work is a concert that corresponds to “North America # 2” 4 performances.
The quality of this work that recorded such a show is wonderful to forget that it is a shooting in the audience seats. First of all, surprising is positioning. To tell the truth, I do not know the detailed position! You can guess that you are shooting from the angle from the left side of the stage, probably from the stand from the stand, but more than that is true. Only the big picture of the stage is posted on the screen endlessly, but nothing else is not seen. “Forest · Hills · stadium” which became the site is a venue of 14,000 people, but even the audience close to the stage is not reflected, so from the screen it is not even known whether it is really a big hall or a club “stage Only “it is a superb view.
Moreover, the image quality is also strange. I think that taking photographs from a fairly long distance will be too beautiful for that as soon as you dismantle the audience. Although the face of the plant is not expected to be a big projection indeed, it still makes the engraved wrinkles and the blonde fresh, making it clear that you can grasp the power that holds the microphone in your hand. And the banjo and the wood base surrounding him are clear up to each string. Of course, although it is the power of the latest digital equipment, it is the image beauty that it will be clear up to here with distant view zoom ……
It is speech that spurs such a strange distance feeling. The performance sound and the singing voice are exquisitely on and there is no distance feeling at all. As with the sight, details are also clear, it is the best sound of unknown position. It is not surprising that it is only that, but the sense of the workplace is actually strangely real. While the performance sound with no distance feeling jumps in, the respiratory feeling of the nearby seat is sucking in. Even though the sight and music are nearly as if they are present on the stage, the existence of spectators is only reserved for cheers and cheers. It seems as if you are watching TV broadcasts with friends and you are separating music and spectators. It is a wonderfully different space sensation video work which the performance sound and the view are foolish because it is missing too much.
A show drawn with that quality. This is more wonderful than ever. The first report of the 2018 show was reported as a masterpiece live album “OAKLAND 2018 (Uxbridge 810)”, but it was minor change in 3 months and a half from there. It’s a pity that “That’s the Way” has fallen, but in lieu of it ZEP numbers such as “The Lemon Song” and “Going To California” are reviving. I approached the royal road of Solo even more. In addition, I will also play ZEP neta such as “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” and “Gallows Pole”, “Please Read the Letter” by PAGE · PLANT, “Whole Lotta Love” at “Bring It On Home” And the traditional song “Santianna”. Although I could listen to these numbers even at “OAKLAND 2018”, it is exceptional when I experience them in a superb view as well. You can understand that the plant is really dying while still dancing and singing.

Extraordinary scenery quality that even more than magical feeling drifts. It will be impossible so far even in the actual experience of the workplace …. A picture work that can deliberately taste such a wonderful sight and sound. I’d like you to choose this weekend.



そんなショウを記録した本作のクオリティは、客席撮影ということを忘れる素晴らしさ。まず、驚くのはポジショニング。実のところ、詳しいポジションが分からない! 角度からステージ左側、高さから恐らくスタンド席から撮影しているとは推測できるのですが、それ以上のことがさっぱり。画面にはステージの大写しだけが延々と映し出され、それ以外のものが目に入らない。現場となった“フォレスト・ヒルズ・スタジアム”は1万4,000人規模の会場なのですが、ステージ間近の観客さえも映らないので画面からは、本当に大会場なのかクラブなのかさえ分からないほど「ステージだけ」な絶景なのです。
そのクオリティで描かれるショウ。これがいつにも増して素晴らしい。2018年ショウの第一報は傑作ライヴアルバム『OAKLAND 2018(Uxbridge 810)』でレポートしましたが、そこから3ヶ月半でマイナーチェンジ。「That’s the Way」が落ちたのは残念ですが、代わって「The Lemon Song」「Going To California」といったZEPナンバーが復活。より一層、ソロの王道に接近しました。他にも「Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You」や「Gallows Pole」といったZEPネタ、PAGE・PLANTの「Please Read the Letter」も演奏しますし、「Bring It On Home」では「Whole Lotta Love」やトラッド曲「Santianna」を織り交ぜた大曲アレンジを聴かせてくれます。こうしたナンバーは『OAKLAND 2018』でも聴けましたが、やはり絶景ごしに体験すると格別。プラントも小躍りしながら実に多ノp死んで歌っているのがよく分かります。
