It has become a Sold Out quickly from that in addition to being our first appearance sound source has released the “OSAKA 2003 FIRST NIGHT”, it was a high-quality recording of a class by himself more than anything. Now that was then passed a few months, our shop will release a new sound source in Osaka the first day of performances in 2003 again. While the audience was master your own recordings that were not around for the traders also between the last time, was turned into a CD sound source of Japan tour in 2003 that due to the T & J what this time. It would be a surprise that T & J, including the Stones concert in Japan this year, was renowned in high-quality sound of the Japan tour of recent and was also recorded Japan tour of 2003 already.
It is different because it is a record of more than ten years ago indeed, and for that taste of thick a “U~omi” is the proprietary of T & J, however again alive and well here is the high quality of T & J exceptional. From the fact that BGM Cayenne before is ringing in a state of off unexpectedly, what it might be a recording state really? I think and it’s possible to get it to the exciting but, “Brown Sugar” If Mire begun emergency, and either be knocked out in one shot to the sound of the guitar that Keith turned on too. Surpass even the high-quality sound of “OSAKA 2003 FIRST NIGHT”, though it is more direct, yet a freshness preeminent recording state and clearness. It’s a sound source can you prove To vividly that the T & J had an excellent sense also recorded at the time of 2003.
Do not also amazing anyway, because it is a sound on too, it is of captures the balance of the sound output of the venue of the day also to fresh. It is a balance drum of Charlie and vocals Mick stands out in three songs beginning but, like uncouth groove and sound come pushed to the front more ish Stones indeed is a masterpiece it was a new song at the time from “Do not Stop”. That sound image on the clearness of the preeminent, how Keith was good of condition this day spree playing the lead in “Bitch” has been recorded in an ideal state not be more also. Keith is such a thing of the T & J recording also unique point that caught without where the force of heavy playing exhaustively in slow showed off just this day of “Thru And Thru” in the Japan tour of 2003.
And speaking of the point of maximum sound source of this time overwhelm “OSAKA 2003 FIRST NIGHT”, you will that there is no change in sound quality even from moving to B-stage. It is a surprise that had been successful in recording boasts the stability of the so far at the time of 2003. If it becomes to listen to playing a support-less B-stage high-quality sound to it without Yuraga at all, and with overwhelming Advantage as a sound source of Japan tour in 2003. Moreover, strong first time Keith will light again, there is the likelihood Stones different again with many of the wonderful performances that were created from the magic of Mick Taylor, such as the Europe this year, the play again here, “Midnight Rambler” No doubt splendor of moves to fresh. And that they have been playing songs the group being played and continues to stand in the climax of the final stage live together in the first half of the live on this tour in the current tour is also interesting.
However, it is the sound of this, but since has appeared in the state to be found here and there is hoarse and sound Dejinoizu Aging DAT, dared a thorough remastered around the noise when on CD. We are reborn to the state stability was up Gazen even compared to the original sound source. And this recording, live in I a leave climax a person of some on the left side from beginning to end, but Screeching of humming emitted in the ending of “Can not You Hear Me Knocking” Among them, glad to have remained at this level really The more it seems that it has. Corrects thoroughly such a state, press CD limited that respect the best recording of T & J will be released this time!

当店がリリースした「OSAKA 2003 FIRST NIGHT」は初登場音源であることに加え、何よりも別格の高音質録音であったことからあっという間にSold Outとなってしまいました。それから数か月を経過した今、当店が再び2003年の大阪初日公演の新たな音源をリリースします。前回はトレーダー間にも出回っていなかった独自マスターのオーディエンス録音だったのに対し、今回は何とT&Jによる2003年来日公演の音源をCD化しました。今年のストーンズ来日公演を始めとして、最近の来日公演の高音質音源で名を馳せたT&Jが既に2003年の来日公演も録音していたとは驚きでしょう。

 さすがに十年以上前の録音ですので、T&Jの専売特許である「ウォーミー」な厚みのある味わいというのとは違いますが、しかしながらここでもT&J別格の高音質はここでも健在。開演前のBGMが思いのほかオフな状態で鳴っていることから、果たしてどのような録音状態なのだろう?とワクワクさせられますが、いざ「Brown Sugar」が始まってみれば、そのあまりにオンなキースのギターの音像に一発でノックアウトされるかと思います。「OSAKA 2003 FIRST NIGHT」の高音質をも凌ぐ、よりダイレクトでありながら、しかもクリアネスと鮮度抜群な録音状態。2003年の時点でもT&Jが卓越した録音センスを持っていたことをまざまざと証明してくれる音源なのです。
 とにかく、あまりにオンな音像ですので、当日の会場の出音のバランスも生々しいまでに捉えているのがまた凄いではありませんか。冒頭三曲ではミックのボーカルとチャーリーのドラムが目立つバランスですが、当時の新曲だった「Don’t Stop」からはいかにもストーンズらしく無骨なサウンドやグルーブがより前面に押されてくる様が圧巻。この日調子の良かったキースが「Bitch」でリードを弾きまくる様子がまた抜群のクリアネスとオンな音像という、これ以上ないほど理想的な状態で記録されています。そんなキースが2003年の来日公演ではこの日だけで披露した「Thru And Thru」のスローで重厚な演奏の迫力が余すところなく捉えられている点もT&J録音ならではのもの。
 そして今回の音源が「OSAKA 2003 FIRST NIGHT」を圧倒してしまう最大の点と言えば、Bステージに移ってからも音質の変化がまったくないことでしょう。2003年の時点でここまでの安定度を誇る録音に成功していたとは驚きです。それまでの高音質がまったく揺らがずにBステージのサポートレスな演奏が聴けるとなれば、2003年来日公演の音源としては圧倒的なアドバンテージを誇ります。しかもやはりキースの好調ぶりが光ります、ここでの「Midnight Rambler」は今年のヨーロッパのようなミック・テイラーとのマジックから生み出された名演の数々とはまた違ったストーンズらしさがあり、改めてその演奏の素晴らしさが新鮮に映ること間違いなし。しかも現在のツアーではライブ終盤のクライマックスに立て続けて演奏されている曲群がこのツアーでライブの前半でまとめて演奏されているという点がまた面白い。
 ただし今回の音源ですが、DATの経年劣化によるデジノイズや音のかすれが散見される状態で登場しましたので、CD化に当たってはノイズを中心に徹底的なリマスターを敢行。元の音源と比べても俄然安定度がアップした状態へと生まれ変わっています。それにこの録音、ライブ中は終始左側で何人かの人物が盛り上がりっぱなしなのですが、中でも「Can’t You Hear Me Knocking」のエンディングで発せられる鼻歌まじりの奇声は本当にこのレベルに留まっていて良かったと思えるほど。そんな状態を徹底的に補正し、今回もT&Jの極上録音をリスペクトした限定のプレスCDがリリースされます!
