But “ISOLAR 1976 TOUR” of all 64 performances, make me hear in the table directly connected sound board end-stage of 61 performances eyes “ROTTERDAM 1976”. That the bonus, will gift you a large classic professional shot that was full recording reverse to have been made to tour the first day of the “through rehearsal” in the multi-camera.
Of this work it has been shooting “Vancouver February 2, 1976”. This day is also the first day of “ISOLAR 1976 TOUR”, is what was just shooting through rehearsal for the final confirmation. “ISOLAR 1976 TOUR only full pro shot”, but there was a classic image has been loved as, this work is a master-quality version of the past highest quality for a long time. And indeed in recent years of digital image quality only 40 years ago of the film the video does not take the comparison, but the master freshness is a rarity. Noise distortion without any, color has also keep the natural color, vivid color. And, a great angle that has been captured by the multi-camera in spite of the rehearsal. Bowie-up, as well as the Kichitsu and members each person in close-up in the solo, what editing is also brilliant professional. No way would not have bothered to release, but the mere rehearsal in itself surprise that he had been an elaborate shooting up here. Of course, the voice is also a crunching sound board.
And, of “STATION TO STATION” era drawn by its quality Bowie world what is great. After all, this era is almost no record, including audience shots, but amazing just seen the era that had been claiming the “Thin White Duke” in the full scale of the one and a half hours, addition of multi-camera professional shot. In addition to it became the unreleased unfortunately the main press 2CD “Queen Bitch”, tour initial only of “Sister Midnight” has also been recorded. In addition, the ensemble There is only on the day the first day have also been finished and tightly, just like production. Do not go with the “enthusiastic performance” only to truly rehearsal, but can also glimpse what the true face because rehearsal in reverse. For example, the first track does not fit well with the chorus in the middle of the “Station To Station”, to also instinctively laughing Bowie, redo “Five Years” several times from the place was Tsu mistake in. In addition, in between songs you can witness to the realistic figure for sound check and members, staff and meeting.

“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR” Saishuban, to the main press 2CD that bottom line to just before the rush to Berlin era, this film you can experience in the direct to tension and back stage of the tour the first day. Both not only representative of the 1976, is a gorgeous set that makes us taste the first and last in the skin sensation. By all means, approaching the close of the “40 years ago, of Bowie” on this occasion, the appearance to the eye, the ear, please baked in mind.

全64公演の“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR”でも、61公演目という末期を卓直結サウンドボードで聴かせてくれる『ROTTERDAM 1976』。そのボーナスには、逆にツアー初日に行われた“通しリハーサル”をマルチカメラでフル収録した大定番プロショットをお贈りします。
本作が撮影されたのは「1976年2月2日バンクーバー」。この日は“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR”の初日でもあり、まさに最終確認のための通しリハーサルを撮影したものです。古くから“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR唯一のフル・プロショット”として愛されてきた定番映像ではありましたが、本作は過去最高品質のマスター・クオリティ・バージョン。さすがに40年前のフィルム映像だけに近年のデジタル画質とは比較になりませんが、そのマスター鮮度は絶品。ノイズも歪みもなく、カラーも自然な色をキープしており、鮮やかな発色です。そして、リハーサルにも関わらずマルチカメラで捉えられたアングルが素晴らしい。ボウイのアップはもとより、ソロではキチッとメンバー各人を大写しにし、編集もプロ仕様の見事なもの。まさかリリースする気はなかったでしょうが、たかがリハでここまで手の込んだ撮影をしていたこと自体が驚き。もちろん、音声もバリバリのサウンドボードです。
そして、そのクオリティで描かれる『STATION TO STATION』時代のボウイ世界こそが素晴らしい。なにしろ、この時代はオーディエンス・ショットも含めてほとんど記録がなく、“Thin White Duke”を名乗っていた時代を1時間半のフルスケールで見られるだけでも凄いのに、しかもマルチカメラのプロショット。本編プレス2CDでは残念ながら未収録となった「Queen Bitch」に加え、ツアー初期だけの「Sister Midnight」も収録されています。しかも、初日当日だけあってアンサンブルもキッチリと仕上げられており、本番さながら。さすがにリハーサルだけに“熱演”とはいきませんが、逆にリハだからこその素顔も垣間見える。例えば、1曲目「Station To Station」では途中でコーラスと上手く合わず、ボウイも思わず笑ってしまいますし、「Five Years」ではミスったところから何度かやり直す。さらに、曲間ではサウンドチェックやメンバー、スタッフと打ち合わせするリアルな姿まで目撃できるのです。

“ISOLAR 1976 TOUR”最終盤、ベルリン時代に突入する直前を総決算した本編プレス2CDに対し、ツアー初日の緊張感や裏舞台までダイレクトに体験できる本作。共に1976年を代表するだけでなく、その最初と最後を肌感覚で味わわせてくれる豪華セットです。ぜひ、この機会に“40年前のボウイ”の間近に迫り、その姿を眼に、耳に、脳裏に焼き付けてください。
