The “FRESH EVIDENCE” era was the last original album. The best soundboard album is here.
Included in this work is “Minneapolis Performance on March 20, 1991”. It is a sound board recording outflow of those concerned. Rory had toured until January 1995, six months before his death, but the world tour lasted in 1991. This tour included the last performance in Japan, so let’s check the show position from that time’s schedule including that.

● 1990
<< May 1 “FRESH EVIDENCE” released >>
・ June 10-27: Europe (3 performances)
・ October 17: ROCKPALAST
・ December 18-29: UK (7 performances)
● 1991
・ February 19-24: Japan (5 performances)
・ February 27-March 1: Australia (3 performances)
・ March 6th-30th: North America (20 performances) ← ★ Here ★

This is the 1990/1991 Rory Gallagher. Even after 1992, tours were conducted with different members, but only in Europe. This was the last world tour to Japan, Australia and North America. Under such circumstances, the Minneapolis performance of this work was the concert corresponding to the last “North America” ​​leg 11 performance.
This work that recorded such a show is just the best sound board recording. The sound board of this show has been known for a long time, but this work is a new master leaked from a different party. Although it is clear that it is a new master because it is about 4 minutes long, such as before the performance and cheers, it is only evidence. The important thing is the quality that goes through the whole story. This is already the difference of cloud mud. The monaural sound is the same as before, but the deterioration is not seen at all, and the ringing is lustrous and stable. As for the type, it is a direct connection from the table rather than the official style, and the cheers and the mix are somewhat rough for on-site PA. However, that’s why there is no bruising to create a concert atmosphere, and the synchronic feeling with the ultra-real live performance is tremendous. I’m especially happy that the guitar is intense. The balance that the guitar came out in front of the rhythm team may not be ideal as an ensemble for the whole band, but it cannot be complaining because the main is Rory. Both hot bullets and delicious phrases are directly connected to your ears. Although not as much as the guitar, the focus is on vocals, and who is the main character clearly appears in the sound. Although it is a level that can be called “official” in terms of audio quality, it is a sound board album that is more vivid than that and can be closely attached to the existence of the inexperienced white bluesman.
The show depicted in that sound is a hot blues rock that will not let you know the end, even though its later years are approaching. Let’s organize the contents of the set here.

● Polydor Era (8 songs)
・ RORY GALLAGHER: Laundromat
・ DEUCE: Used To Be
・ LIVE IN EUROPE: Pistol Slapper Blues / Messin ‘With The Kid / Bullfrog Blues
・ TATTOO: Tattoo’d Lady / A Million Miles Away
・ IRISH TOUR’74: I Wonder Who
● Chrysalis (7 songs)
・ AGAINST THE GRAIN: Out On The Western Plains / All Around Man
・ CALLING CARD: Moonchild
・ PHOTO-FINISH: Shin Kicker / Shadow Play
・ TOP PRIORITY: Off The Handle / Bad Penny
● CAPO era (8 songs)
・ DEFENDER: Continental Op / Don’t Start Me Talkin ’/ Loanshark Blues
・ FRESH EVIDENCE: The Loop / Kid Gloves / Walkin ‘Wounded / Ghost Blues / Heaven’s Gate
● Other (3 songs)
・ Goin ‘Down to Eli ’s (Wolkin Nighthawk) / Walkin’ Blues (Robert Johnson) / Tumbling Dice (THE ROLLING STONES)

… and it looks like this. While covering 5 songs from the latest “FRESH EVIDENCE” thickly, it covers a wide range of solo careers for 20 years. Speaking of this period, ROCKPALAST professional shots are typical, but only 7 songs are covered, and the other 19 songs are just another selection. Especially, you can listen to precious numbers such as “FRESH EVIDENCE” 3 songs “Kid Gloves” “Walkin ‘Wounded” “Heaven’s Gate”, Nighthawk “Goin’ Down to Eli’s”, Stones’ Tumbling Dice ”on the sound board. it’s the best.
And the performance itself that spells the set is too great. ROCKPALAST was a five-person group with a keyboard, but here is the same four-person organization as the performance in Japan. At the core is a trio with allied friend Jerry McAvoy and his friend Brendan O’Neill from his school days, with Mark Feltmann’s Bruce Harp participating. The following year, in 1992, McAvoy and Brendan were separated from the cocoon, but this work was just before that. The sympathy of Aki, who was the final destination with McAvoy, cultivated through his solo career, is amazing. The mark that is entwined with a gorgeous brow that is not even defeated by Junior Wells is also wonderful, and it is pierced with a great “real feeling”.

From the hard British hard rock to the deep blues like Chicago, it is the culmination of Rory. The late Rory was not able to deepen the ensemble with the new band due to the deterioration of the physical condition, but here he listens to a passionate performance that can be said to be the end of 20 years of solo career with McAvoy. A masterpiece of a live album where you can enjoy the full show on the sound board. Please enjoy to your heart’s content on a permanent preservation press CD.

★ Perfect! Official level super high quality sound board.

★ Superb sound board album “MINNEAPOLIS 1991: SOUNDBOARD MASTER” by the master of outflows from related parties. As long as the first limited edition number sticker is included, the video version of “MINNEAPOLIS 1991: THE VIDEO” will be included. (The CD’s super high-quality sound board is recorded in sync!)

The main press 2CD is a masterpiece of the live album that will be the culmination of Rory Gallagher’s solo career. However, the Minneapolis performance that became the unit is also known for having a wonderful audience shot. Therefore, the video edition that gives a glimpse of the “other side” of the historical masterpiece live album is also included in the bonus.
That’s why this work contains the same “Minneapolis performance on March 20, 1991” as the main press 2CD. This is an upgraded version that synchronizes the best sound board of the main press 2CD with the audience shot. The greatness of the sound is left to the commentary in this volume, and the sight is quite amazing. The photo is taken directly from the arena seat on the first floor, but the bold zoom and master freshness are superb. About 3 songs from the start of the performance are distant images where the whole band enters about 1/5 of the screen, but it was practice so far, zooming from the 4th song “The Loop”, Rory’s West Up screen It approaches full. Until then, Rory’s face was flying white, but after approaching the zoom, she could understand the hot expression and the movement of the hand dancing the fingerboard.
And freshness. Probably digitized from the 1st generation of the original 8mm video master, although it is not asserted by the exact generation. For that reason, dubbing marks are minimal and the color is vivid. Although it cannot be said that “analogous-quality image quality!” Is only analog image quality, it is a realistic video beauty where the memory of that last performance in Japan is reverberating. Of course, it is a superb sound board that raises the video several stages. As a matter of fact, there was a version that was previously covered with a sound board, but this work synchronizes the voice of the upgraded 2CD press CD. The improvement in audio is directly linked to the improvement of the appreciation, and the performance is felt even more hot with Rory’s playing.
”What feels even more in the video is the presence of Jerry McAvoy. Camerawork continues to follow Rory, but he frequently exchanges eye contact with McAvoy, and Brendan O’Neill and Mark Feltman are timing around Macavoy. Rory’s guitar is undoubtedly the lead of the show, but McAvoy is the key to the entire ensemble, with a tightly organized rhythm team. The band structure, which has been cultivated over 20 years, clearly depicts how important McAvoy is for Rory Music.

”Rory Gallagher who traveled the whole world with the studio work“ FRESH EVIDENCE ”. This is a video work that lets you witness the scene of the last US tour. One piece that has been upgraded with the best sound board vivid video beauty of the 1st generation. Please enjoy it with the best live album.

★関係者流出マスターによる極上サウンドボード・アルバム『MINNEAPOLIS 1991: SOUNDBOARD MASTER』。その初回限定ナンバー入りステッカー付きに限り、同じショウの映像版『MINNEAPOLIS 1991: THE VIDEO』が特別に付属致します。(CDの超高音質サウンドボードをシンクロ収録しました!)

と言うわけで、本作に収められているのは本編プレス2CDと同じ「1991年3月20日ミネアポリス公演」。そのオーディエンス・ショットに、本編プレス2CDの極上サウンドボードをシンクロさせたアップグレード版です。サウンドの素晴らしさは本編の解説に譲るとして、光景もなかなかに素晴らしい。1階アリーナ席から直写しているのですが、果敢なズームとマスター鮮度が絶品。開演から3曲ほどは画面1/5くらいにバンド全員が入る遠目の映像なのですが、そこまでは練習だったのか、4曲目の「The Loop」からグイグイッとズームし、ロリーのウェストアップが画面いっぱいに迫る。それまではロリーの顔面は白く飛んでのっぺらぼうなのですが、ズームに迫ってからは熱く弾き込む表情や指板を踊る手の動きまで分かるのです。

スタジオ遺作『FRESH EVIDENCE』を引っさげ、全世界を巡っていたロリー・ギャラガー。その最後の米国ツアーの現場を目撃できる映像作品です。1stジェネの鮮やかな映像美を極上サウンドボードでアップグレードさせた1枚。極めつけライヴアルバムと併せ、ぜひじっくりとご堪能ください。
