2年ぶりのジャパンツアーに続き、音源のハイクオリティ競争で一層盛り上がっているTOTO。そんな彼らの極上プロショットがギフト・タイトルで復活です。本作が撮影されたのは、今を去ること13年前。25周年記念ツアーに勤しんでいた時代の「2013年6月20日ヴォーレン(スイス)公演」を収めたプロショット映像です。当時、現地スイスでテレビ番組“MUSIC NIGHT”で放送されたデジタル・マスターから収録しており、かつてTRIALレーベルから通常リリースもされていたものです。
放送枠に合わせて1時間ほどに編集されてはいますが、気になるクオリティはまさに極上。先日も翌2004年の素晴らしい南米プロショット『VINA DEL MAR FESTIVAL 2004』をご紹介しましたが、今回は輪をかけて凄い。美しい発色の画面、繊細な画質、超クリアなサウンド……まさにオフィシャル級です。『VINA DEL MAR FESTIVAL 2004』も南米の放送機材の進歩を感じさせる完璧なプロショットでしたが、やはりロックで世界をリードし続けてきたヨーロッパ、一日の長を感じさせるクオリティ。南米映像より暗めの画面ではありますが、これが本来のロックのステージでもあるわけです。
本作は、その『VINA DEL MAR FESTIVAL 2004』では見られなかった「While My Guitar Gently Weeps」でスタート。いきなりのバラードというのも、いかにもテレビ編集という感じですが、やはりこの曲は感動的です。この他にも「I Won’t Hold You Back」やスティーヴ・ルカサーや黒人キーボードィスト、グレッグ・フィリンゲンスのソロタイムが見られるのも嬉しい。この25周年ツアーからはオフィシャル作品『LIVE IN AMSTERDAM』も出ていますが、そこでキーボードを弾いていたデヴィッド・ペイチの姿はない。一般にグレッグは2004年にサポート参加、2005年加入となっているものの、2003年の時点でも弾いていたわけです。特に『LIVE IN AMSTERDAM』が収録されたのは2003年2月で、本作2003年6月。ちょうど切り替わりの微妙な時期だったようです。
『VINA DEL MAR FESTIVAL 2004』に続き、またも復活した25周年ツアーの大傑作映像。豪華なヒットパレードも、初々しいグレッグも、ALSに冒される前のマイク・ポーカロのベースも、すべてがオフィシャル級で収められた傑作。ぜひ、この機会にお試しください。
