Beginning from last month, the current from the 2011 European tour to continue in the Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler also, is the title that was recorded in the sound quality of the startle the Nottingham performances of October 11. Dylan on the disk 1 & 2, and has been recorded live on the day of Knopfler to disk 3. Sound source that was used here has not been around all over the traders and between net, of course, is are you private your own audience recording, but nothing else would like you to listen even if is its great sound quality. Originally, but live in the high-quality sound source tend to circulate Dylan among fans, I think in no early Audience recording boasts the clearness amazing up here among such. “The sound is a difference” and is not uncommon Dylan audience recordings to listen in “playing extruded over the entire surface,” sound quality, and sound output emitted from the venue so far, the balance showed picked up moderately realism surrounding goodness, it’s the outstanding point of this recording. Also it is recorded Dylan’s voice and the band performance of To clearly, such as sound and snare sound of the acoustic guitar extending nature, such as blend along with the faint echo of the venue, only natural sound image, or to the beautiful sound quality What is not to lose the words.
And this tour is that the tour was carried out followed by a deep Mark Knopfler of friendship to the undercard from before, even stage of Knopfler is in this title, recorded in the same great sound quality (really seems to be a sound board) do not miss the point is. Did in the later performances he was impromptu to the stage of Dylan unfortunately, as if artists like Knopfler also this day was conscious that you are on the undercard, wonderful performance of Dylan is waged over the full length are we. But is Dylan became finally to the 70-year-old, how his energetic song pulls the band to be heard here are sufficient to him is to forget that it is a such elderly. Also the performance that was the lively has been taken in a Katsuaki would be a big attraction of this sound source. Come in large volume, or I will listen carefully with headphones, good its delicate and comfortable, I would like to entrust himself to the warm sound quality. Dylan around the world, and ultra-high-quality items of Knopfler fans must listen is a limited release!

★ is a review summary of beatleg magazine vol.138 (January issue 2012). In case you’re wondering.

And to say that the spread of the development of the sound source available on the Internet, thanks to which the person has been continued to vigorously tour also surprisingly current, the release of the significance and demand for CD item had faded recently It would be of Dylan live. Soredakeni, thus, but the uniqueness of the sound source is required now that the release as an item, it is expected that the point title was recorded this latest Nottingham performances are using a sound source that is not widespread on the trade and the net. But noteworthy more than that is, the goodness of the sound quality of the audience recording. Not only the closeness of the play, the top quality of the sound hole echo of venue is combined moderately in because something good very listening comfort. But level that it is was also able to release in the press of the disk in this if margin, but happy in addition to it is also the best condition the first time in the Dylan of this day has been captured in the scrupulosity. After all, he reaches the apex with me to listen to profusely a peppy song from “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” around, it is “Visions Of Johanna”. Here recently also but live of Dylan controversial likes and dislikes has been increasing mellow of the music arrangement, I think it’s been covered in the goodness of alive of singing voice is that it is the stage of the day. Therefore, in this most recent European tour once “Slow Train Coming” and “Infideruzu” in Mark Knopfler was also a partner of collaboration has served as the opening act. And ironically, although calling the topic that the co-star of Dylan and his were realized in a later stage than this day, Dylan song of the day was the top form the first time much it will not bother me. The stage of Knopfler be housed in the disk of the comedian, this also is a great quality sound of surprise, I would be surprised that he is playing some of the new songs that are not released. And Dylan is also good source of the first half of the Asian Tour this year, which is also a substantial excellent sound source.


★beatleg誌 vol.138(2012年1月号)のレビュー要約です。ご参考まで。

インターネット上での音源入手の発達の普及と言うことと、本人が現在も驚くほど精力的にツアーを続けてきているおかげで、CDアイテムとしてのリリースの意義や需要が薄れてしまったのが最近のディランのライブだろう。それだけに、こうしてアイテムとしてリリースするからには音源の独自性が求められるが、その点この最新のノッティンガム公演を収録したタイトルはトレードやネット上で広まっていない音源を使用しているのがさすがだ。しかしそれ以上に特筆すべきは、そのオーディエンス録音の音質の良さ。演奏の近さだけでなく、その上で会場のホール・エコーがほどよく合わさった音質は非常に聴き心地のいいものだからだ。これなら余裕でプレスのディスクでもリリース出来たのではというレベルだが、それに加えてこの日のディランの絶好調ぶりが克明に捉えられているのも嬉しい。何しろ彼は「Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues」辺りからやたらと元気いっぱいな歌を聴かせてくれ、それが「Visions Of Johanna」で頂点に達する。ここ最近はまた楽曲アレンジのメロウ度が高まってきて好き嫌いが分かれるディランのライブだが、それを歌声の活きの良さでカバーしているのがこの日のステージだと思う。よってこの最新のヨーロッパ・ツアーはかつて『スロートレイン・カミング』や『インフィデルズ』での共同作業の相手でもあったマーク・ノップラーが前座を務めた。しかも皮肉なことに、この日より後のステージで彼とディランの共演が実現したことが話題を呼んだが、この日のディランの歌はそれが気にならなくなるくらいの絶好調ぶりだった。そのノップラーのステージも三枚目のディスクに収められていて、これまた素晴らしい音質なのが驚きだが、彼がリリースしていない新曲をいくつか演奏しているというのも驚きだろう。そしてディランは今年前半のアジアツアーの音源も良かったが、これも相当な優良音源である。
