The legend of PINK FOLYD also remains the promised land, “Hyde Park”. The original recording telling the scene is a gift release decision.
Roger Waters returned to Hyde Park on July 6, 2018. It is a masterpiece audience recording when I appeared on the music festival “BRITISH SUMMER TIME” with the act of “US + THEM” which landed in Europe. Festival has become an annual festival from 2013, this year Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood and Paul Simon’s live album are very popular in our shop. However, in the case of Roger, the meaning slightly differs. Speaking of Hyde Park, what comes to my mind is the legendary engravings in the history of PINK FLOYD including the 1970 free concert and the 2005 LIVE 8. Two years ago, Dave Gilmore did a live show in Pompeii, but it is a concert that can be said as Roger version.
Many people worldwide / recorders also pay attention to so many shows. The masterpiece “HYDE PARK 2018 (Amity 461)” which was released the other day was what the American recordingist left behind. But he was not the only master who crossed the ocean. A master of record was also passed from Japan, and she kept the site. That’s it. It is an original · live album of only this work which made master directly transferred from the recordingist himself direct CD.
That sound is elegant audience recording that is like Japanese people. Just before the stage is a diamond area, this work is recorded from the gold area just behind it. Therefore, although not so close as to call “just like a sound board”, you can feel Roger soon enough. Moreover, the field is outdoor. There is no wall or ceiling to bounce back sounds, PA output sound is picked up directly, vibrant but vibrant to details. The treble extends to the empty space while detailing it, the middle range is rich mellow everywhere. The bass that rocks the earth is also a tremendous deep power. To tell the truth, because it is too powerful deep bass, there is no scenes that are slightly scalloped by the impact sound of SE, but clearness is a name recording comparable to the sound board anyway.
The show drawn with such quality is wonderful. “US + THEM” has already traveled around the world, the trial and error polished set boasts the perfection of the iron wall, the performance is in a mature range. You can taste plenty of shows progressing just to the completion stage. That kind of “completed form: US + THEM” can be heard even at the top masterpiece of European edition “DEFINITIVE LUCCA 2018 (Sigma 219)” which will appear this week, but this work is a place promised anywhere else, Hyde Park. The breath of the people standing there, the sense of breathing clearly is different from other performances. As a matter of fact, this work (although far smaller than the performance) also picked up surrounding voices, the dialogue voice, the waves of the big chorus that gush and the roar of the world that witnessed the great spectacle of the era also reality I can feel it. This “feeling in the legendary place” sense is wonderful.

A treasure of only this work which has not been circulated on the net. Amity label “HYDE PARK 2018” was also a famous masterpiece of the world, but this work is a masterpiece of the document which will make it taste even more realistic workplace feeling and experiences while also thinning the insignificant item is. Even if it is open to the net, maniacs all over the world would have asked for it. Beautiful sound of “US + THEM” that the Japanese took in the legendary scene. Please, enjoy this plenty of opportunities.


PINK FOLYDの伝説も残る約束の地、“ハイドパーク”。その現場を伝えるオリジナル録音がギフト・リリース決定です。
ロジャー・ウォーターズがハイドパークに戻ってきたのは「2018年7月6日」。ヨーロッパへ上陸した“US + THEM”の一幕で、音楽フェス“BRITISH SUMMER TIME”に出演した際の傑作オーディエンス録音です。2013年から恒例となっているフェスで、今年は当店でもエリック・クラプトンやスティーヴ・ウィンウッド、ポール・サイモンのライヴアルバムが大好評を賜っています。しかし、ロジャーの場合は意味合いが少し異なる。ハイドパークと言えば、ファンの脳裏に浮かぶのは1970年のフリーコンサートや2005年のLIVE 8など、PINK FLOYDの歴史に刻まれた伝説の数々。2年前のデイヴ・ギルモアがポンペイでライヴを行いましたが、そのロジャー篇とでも言えるようなコンサートなのです。
それほどのショウだけに世界中のマニア/録音家も注目。先日リリースされた大傑作『HYDE PARK 2018(Amity 461)』も、アメリカの録音家が残したものでした。しかし、大洋を渡った名手は彼だけではなかった。日本からも記録の名手が渡英しており、現場を保存していた。それが本作。録音家本人から直接譲られたマスターをダイレクトにCD化した、本作だけのオリジナル・ライヴアルバムなのです。
そんなクオリティで描かれるショウが素晴らしい。“US + THEM”はすでに世界各地を巡っており、試行錯誤して磨き込まれたセットは鉄壁の完成度を誇り、演奏は円熟の域。まさに完成段階にまでプログレスしたショウがたっぷりと味わえるのです。そうした“完成形:US + THEM”は、今週登場するヨーロッパ編の最高傑作『DEFINITIVE LUCCA 2018(Sigma 219)』でも聴けるわけですが、本作は他のどこでもない約束の地、ハイドパーク。そこに立つ人々の息吹、呼吸感は明らかに他公演とは異なっている。実のところ、本作は(演奏よりも遙かに小さいものの)周囲の声も拾っており、その会話声や沸き立つ大合唱の波、そして当代きっての一大スペクタクルを目の当たりにしたどよめきもリアルに感じ取れる。この“伝説の場にいる”感覚こそが素晴らしいのです。

ネットでも出回っていない本作だけの秘宝。Amityレーベルの『HYDE PARK 2018』も世界の名作然とした傑作でしたが、本作はかの銘品にも肉薄しつつ、さらにリアルな現場感・体験感まで味わわせてくれるドキュメントの傑作なのです。もし、ネットに公開されていたとしても世界中のマニアがこぞって求めたことでしょう。伝説の現場で日本人が浴びた“US + THEM”の美音。どうぞ、この機会にたっぷりとご堪能ください。
