From the 2014 European tour, and full inclusion in the high-quality audience recording the Paris performance of June 13, which is 7 th concert tour. This is the Stones Euro Tour this 12 performances also to have been made already, best recording board of the Japan tour the same level is not out enough, is made to fret the sound source fan, but this Paris to Zurich, June 1 with that said high-quality sound source, second only, it is called a big topic between mania already. It is a fine adjustment range harmonics because of high-quality sound, but we equalization to put an accent to the original sound. However, I think that because the original recording good place you do not feel a big difference, even after re-master, and able to love the way it feels to the people of the fan. Definitely that it was recorded by the microphone quality, loud dynamic part from delicate sound to have been recorded neither too much nor too little, you can listen calmly for balance is also good. Out Of Control, etc. has been recorded in Yo-on surprisingly in particular. The nice thing about this recording, at the stage that is up to the net, and that there is almost no excess equalize feeling, no doubt make me very happy the Stones fan of many natural sound by stomach sharp to have of the sound source. It was also the explanation of Zurich the previous but sound source was recorded “This sound quality excellent to very, level of excitement surrounding is low, and is a stunning recording state to listen without stress. Nippon sound source high level is finalized sound image has become a meek ​​little balance as compared to the performance thing, but rather to such a person, such as swelling of the surrounding Asked recordings. audience will those sound quality with this calm feel the unique charm worried about it’s called. “what is probably a recording is an ideal state, it is a word that applies directly to this board. Large scale performance of the Stones of this day to listen in sound with the sharp sharp is the best word. For now, high-quality sound from the latest tour! If you wish to, you will not will pay you to get this Paris performance of the Zurich and Beyond. Yes these, some, say good audience recording of the original sound image a document ticks the power came out of the shoulder, so the best, While it is perhaps When I listen to the Stones live overseas recording again doing this, Japan tour recording we’ve frenzy a few months ago, I might of had more take crowded building was too intense somewhat. In any case, this Paris concert recording is very excellent. Please enjoy this opportunity!

(For performance of the day)

That the live sound of the Stones now had started climbing to the next step had become clear that a three-day tour but “ZURICH 2014” Compared with Japan tour in the spring, but the sense of speed even more in this Paris performance performance with increased will listen on everywhere. On the contrary or would appeal of live performance of this day’s run is to much want and put the thrust? “Not a little drive too fast.” Speedy enough that prime example is not to be able to compare, even compared to the take “Bitch”, the first day of the Tokyo Dome is handed down. The speedy further would be “Out Of Control”. Enough to be compared to the case of Zurich, performance is becoming more quickly, song of Mick is also a slight skip to match. It was also the scene of this day only. However, not even so speaking of such a sense of speed playing of whether they were alive in every song, playing here will hear the tone Sewashinai rather slow, such as “Wild Horses”. Neighborhood or would not have been a suitable atmosphere to the song rather more of a performance with the presence of mind, such as take the first day of the dome rather.
But playing danger flickers as ever, to where a sense of stability and momentum of the time when you were showing off in the United States a year ago just would gone to “Doom And Gloom”? It is about such Tage said even with the restless, not to be played with set as “One More Shot” like. And this only because it is the day playing with the force is barrage, sluggish feeling of Keith of “Can’t Be Seen” lets you feel the healing rather (laughs). It aside, emitted dash feeling is particular from live this day again. The really great Mick Taylor join “Midnight Rambler” You, also the way in which his guitar here. The best among 2014 of the “Rambler” Maybe it? Lead guitar Taylor had Saewata~tsu enough to seem a. However charm breath is not meet unexpectedly at the scene to determine the break tempo of this song down. It may be said that the best sound that captures the day enjoy glue different from the Japan tour in every sense.

2014年ヨーロッパ・ツアーから、ツアー7公演目となる6月13日のパリ公演を高音質オーディエンス録音で完全収録。既に12公演も行われているのに、日本ツアー並みの極上録音盤がなかなか出ず、音源ファンをヤキモキさせている今回のストーンズ・ユーロ・ツアーですが、このパリは6月1日のチューリッヒに次ぐ高音質音源ということで、既にマニア間で大きな話題を呼んでいます。元音が高音質なので微調整ですが、原音に対してメリハリをつけるイコライズをしました。しかしながらリマスターをしても大きな差が感じられない位に元が良い録音なので、ファンの方々にはきっと気に入って頂けると思います。質の高いマイクで録音されたことは間違いなく、繊細なサウンドからダイナミックなラウド部分まで過不足なく収録されており、バランスも良好であるため落ち着いて聴くことができます。特にOut Of Control等は驚くほど良音で録れています。この録音の良い点は、ネットにアップされた段階で、過剰なイコライズ感が殆どないことで、本音源のもつシャープでいて自然なサウンドは多くのストーンズファンを大満足させてくれること間違いありません。先のチューリッヒの解説にもありましたが「今回収録された音源は大変に優秀な音質で、周囲の盛り上がりのレベルが低く、ストレスなしで聴ける見事な録音状態です。レベルの高い音源が出そろった日本公演ものと比べて音像は少しおとなしいバランスとなっていますが、この落ち着きのある音質が独特の魅力を感じさせるものでしょう。オーディエンス録音でよくある周囲の盛り上がりなどが気になる人などにはむしろ理想的な録音状態であるかと思われます。」というのは、本盤にもそのまま当てはまる言葉です。シャープでメリハリのあるサウンドで聴けるこの日のストーンズのスケールの大きなパフォーマンスは最高の一言。とりあえず、最新ツアーから高音質を!と御希望の方には、先のチューリッヒとこのパリ公演を入手しておけば損はないでしょう。こうやって改めて海外録音のストーンズライヴを聴いてみると本来のオーディエンス録音の良さと言うのはこういった、若干、肩の力の抜けたドキュメントちっくな音像が最高なのであり、もしかしてですが、私たちが数カ月前に熱狂した日本公演録音は、やや造りこみが激しすぎたテイクが多かったのかもしれませんね。いずれにせよ、このパリ公演録音は大変優秀です。是非、この機会にお楽しみ下さい!


 春の来日公演と比べるとツアー三日目の「ZURICH 2014」でも今のストーンズのライブ・サウンドが次のステップへ登り始めていたことが明らかとなっていましたが、このパリ公演ではさらにスピード感を増した演奏が随所で聴かれます。それどころか「ちょっと飛ばしすぎじゃない?」と突っ込みを入れたくなるくらいに演奏が走るのがこの日のライブの魅力でしょうか。その最たる例が「Bitch」、東京ドーム初日のテイクと比べても比べ物にならないほどの疾走感が伝わってきます。さらにスピーディなのが「Out Of Control」でしょう。チューリッヒの時と比べても、さらに演奏が早くなっていて、ミックの歌もそれに合わせて飛ばし気味となっているほど。それもこの日ならではの場面でした。ただしそういった演奏のスピード感がすべての曲で生かされているかと言えばそうでもなく、スローな「Wild Horses」などはここでの演奏がむしろせわしない調子に聴こえます。その辺りはむしろドーム初日のテイクのような落ち着きのある演奏の方がむしろ曲にふさわしい雰囲気だったのではないでしょうか。
 しかし「Doom And Gloom」は相変わらず危うさがチラつく演奏で、ちょうど一年前にアメリカで披露していた頃の勢いと安定感はどこへ行ってしまったのでしょう?まるで「One More Shot」とセットで演奏されないと落ち着かない、とでも言いたげなほどです。それにこれだけ勢いのある演奏が連発される日ですので、キースの「Can’t Be Seen」のもたつき感がかえって癒しを感じさせてくれます(笑)。それはともかくとして、やはりこの日のライブから放たれる疾走感は格別。ミック・テイラーが加わる「Midnight Rambler」ですか、ここでの彼のギターのキレ具合がまた実に素晴らしい。もしかしたら2014年の「Rambler」の中でもベストでは?と思えるほどテイラーのリード・ギターが冴え渡っていました。ところがこの曲のテンポが落ちてブレイクを決める場面では意外と息が合わないのがご愛嬌。あらゆる意味で日本公演とは違うノリが楽しめる一日を捉えた極上音源と言えるでしょう。
