era U2 in 1989, who climbed up to the darling of Osaka and returned to Japan for the first time in 6 years. An original master who conveys that glorious performance in Japan has been newly discovered. Of course, it is decided to make a permanent storage press 2CD.
The performance of “November 29, 1989: Osaka Castle Hall” is imbued with this work. Speaking of U2 in 1989, “THE JOSHUA TREE” and “RATTLE AND HUM” achieved the first place in the United States and the United Kingdom in two consecutive works, and it is a super big game that is neither pushed nor pushed. It is an excellent audience recording that recorded one act of “LOVETOWN TOUR” that went around the world with BB King. Since the tour to Japan was a big event that remains in the Western music scene, we have archived many masterpiece live albums in our shop. First of all, let’s look back on the schedule at that time in order to organize the collection.

・ November 23: Yokohama Arena “WHEN LOVE COMES TO JAPAN”
・ November 25: Tokyo Dome “TOKYO DOME 1989 1st Night: MASTER”
・ November 26: Tokyo Dome “LOVE RESCUE ME”
・ November 28 : Osaka Castle Hall
・ November 29: Osaka Castle Hall ← ★ This work ★
・ December 1: Osaka Castle Hall “OSAKA 1989 Final Night”
* Note: Only representative press titles on each day.

Above, all 6 performances. In the past, it was mainly in the Kanto area, but in recent years, a press masterpiece for Osaka performances has also appeared. With this work, we have reached the point where we are one step closer to the complete permanent preservation of the original recording. This work, which recorded such a show, is a truly exquisite audience recording. As a matter of fact, it was a legendary master who made this work a thing. He has left a large number of live-in-Japan super masterpieces that remain in the history of recording, mainly in the 1980s, and is actually the same recorder as “OSAKA 1989 Final Night (Wardour-245)”. It is a legendary taper that is rumored to exceed even that Kinney, and we have archived a large amount of its treasured original master, but this work is the latest excavation.
In fact, the sound is really neat and beautiful. Although it is an audience recording that honestly sucked in the cheers of the popular climax, the air feeling is transparent and glittering, and the core that penetrates the center is vivid like a laser beam. Especially in the case of U2 in the 1980s, the sound output itself emphasizes the sound and lingering sound, but the sound and the hall sound are in harmony so naturally that they cannot be separated. Although it is not the type that is touted as “zero distance, undelivered, like a sound board”, the subtleties of the performance are clearly transmitted, and on top of that, the reality and immersive feeling of standing in the middle of the venue is wonderful. It is the world of beautiful sound because it is an audience recording.
What is drawn with such a beautiful sound is a full show that delivered the glory that won the world to Japan. U2 is also a band that changes the set every day, and even when I came to Japan in 1989, there were songs that changed every day. This is a good opportunity, so let’s organize the fixed songs and the daily songs separately.

● Fixed songs (9 songs)
・ The Unforgettable: Pride (In The Name Of Love)
・ The Joshua Tree: Where The Streets Have No Name / I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
・ Rattle and Hum: Desire / All Along The Watchtower / All I Want Is You / Angel Of Harlem / When Love Comes To Town (★) / Love Rescue Me (★)
● Daily songs (7 songs)
・ Boy: I Will Follow
・ WAR (fight): New Year’s Day
・ Flame: MLK / The Unforgettable Fire
-Joshua Tree: Bullet The Blue Sky / With Or Without You
-Soul Cry: Van Diemen’s Land
* Note: “★” mark is a co-star with BB King.

… And it looks like this. A little less than half of the set changed daily, but it can be divided into semi-standard songs and rare songs played at most shows. The rare song of the day was “The Unforgettable Fire”, which was the number that was shown only on the first day in Tokyo and the second day in Osaka. In terms of their entire career, Bob Dylan’s cover “All Along The Watchtower”, “Love Rescue Me” featuring BB King, and “Van Diemen’s Land” featuring edge guitars are the repertoire unique to those days. You can experience many such precious songs in the field with the best sound.
It is a live album that not only allows you to experience the great “LOVETOWN TOUR” on-site, but at the same time, you can fully absorb the scent of the “Western music boom of the 1980s”. The clapping of hands, the cheering that was careful not to interfere with the performance, and the sea of ​​chorus that spreads out of control. A unique mood in which the feeling of breathing unique to such a Japanese performance feeds back to the stage and expels the heat. An original master who can experience the sensation of being in the middle of it. Please get drunk to your heart’s content with the permanent storage press 2CD.

「1989年11月29日大阪城ホール」の公演が盛り込まれている。 1989年のU2といえば、「THE JOSHUA TREE」と「RATTLE AND HUM」が2回連続でアメリカとイギリスで1位を獲得し、プッシュもプッシュもされない超ビッグゲームです。 BBキングと世界中を巡った「LOVETOWN TOUR」の一幕を収録した秀逸なオーディエンス録音です。日本へのツアーは西洋の音楽シーンに残る大きなイベントだったので、当店では数々の名作ライブアルバムをアーカイブしてきました。まず、コレクションを整理するために、当時のスケジュールを振り返ってみましょう。

・11月23日:横浜アリーナ「WHEN LOVE COMES TO JAPAN」
・11月25日:東京ドーム「TOKYO DOME 1989 1st Night:MASTER」
・11月26日:東京ドーム「LOVE RESCUE ME」
・12月1日:大阪城ホール「OSAKA 1989 Final Night」

以上、全6公演。かつては関東圏を中心としていましたが、近年では大阪公演のプレス傑作も登場しています。この作品により、オリジナルのレコーディングの完全な永久保存に一歩近づくことができるようになりました。そんな番組を収録したこの作品は、まさに絶妙なオーディエンス録音です。実のところ、この作品を生み出したのは伝説の巨匠でした。彼は1980年代を中心にレコーディングの歴史に残る日本在住の超名作を数多く残しており、実は「OSAKA 1989 Final Night(Wardour-245)」と同じレコーダーです。あのキニーをも超えると噂されている伝説のテーパーで、その秘蔵オリジナルマスターを大量にアーカイブしておりますが、今回の作品は最新発掘です。
実際、音は本当に清楚で美しいです。人気クライマックスの歓声を正直に吸い込んだオーディエンス録音ですが、空気感は透明でキラキラしていて、中心を貫く芯はレーザー光のように鮮やかです。特に1980年代のU2の場合、音の出力自体は音と余韻を強調していますが、音とホール音は自然に調和しているため分離できません。 「響板のように未発表、未発表」と謳われるタイプではありませんが、演奏の繊細さがくっきりと伝わっており、しかも会場の真ん中に立つという臨場感と臨場感素晴らしいです。オーディエンス録音なので美しい音の世界です。
そんな美しい音で描かれるのは、世界に勝った栄光を日本に届けたフルショーです。 U2も毎日セットを変えるバンドで、1989年に日本に来ても毎日変わる曲がありました。いい機会なので、定番と日替わりの曲を分けて整理しましょう。
