There was “continuation” for excavating new shocks! A new master of the sound board representing the immediate after debut also appeared again. It is a permanent preservation press CD decision.
The soundboard album “DEFINITIVE HAMMERSMITH 1978 (Zodiac 296)” that caused the impact of the class recently. Ultra famous soundboard symbolizing the initial VAN HALEN performed the upgrade, it was a novel excavation. This work is also a new master brought from the same route. It is also the ultimate stereo sound board recording of their first UK tour “Manchester Performance May 22, 1978”. For those who missed the impact of last week, let’s check the position of the show once in the whole world tour.

“December 11” Legendary bomber “started production”

This is the world tour of 1978 which caused the world revolution. The European tour from May was also their first overseas performance and it was also before the legendary first visit to Japan. Last week ‘s “DEFINITIVE HAMMERSMITH 1978” was a tour of the UK tour 14, but the Manchester performance of this work was the 6th show 10 days ago. This show is also known as Hammersmith ‘s performance as well as an outflow soundboard, but this work is its upgrade board.
That sound is shocking this time as well. Already, everything is different. The pitch was correctly arranged at our shop, but it is not that story at the moment. Although it had the sharpness of the edges peculiar to the sound board, it was the feeling that it was wrapped in the base that it was boiled down. If you compare it in recent years, it sounds like a matrix of AUD with bass swelling in the IEM monitor. However, this work clearly clears up to the bass range. The crushed baseline is also sharp and vividly distorted bass solo is also as vivid as the waveform of the vibe floats in my eyes. The sense of separation with the drum which had been clouded by the previous episode is also vivid.
Of course, it is not just bass. We also upgraded the original treasured treble. Beautiful stereo feeling, beautiful, unlike the previous episodes that heard through the boys’ bass, unlike the previous episodes, plenty of vocal and guitar cookery make plenty of sense. What is surprising is that it is brilliant but not as hesitant as sound pressure revitalizer. Peak of the drum and guitar is not crushed by the limiter, it is beautiful even in Fortesimo, it does not pierce into the ear. It remains vivid and natural, and the artwork of the “flame fuse line” artwork is brilliant as it is. It is truly a marvelous new excavation master.
The burning rock painted with that sound is also terrible. As the above schedule, Hatsune Uke is a huge thing to do 20 performances over about a month. After that, British performances were held several times in a long career, but in both cases there were only a few performances of Hong and it was only in 1978 to call it a tour. The condition is different so much in the early stage and the final stage only for this long-time field, but in this the Manchester performance of this work is the sixth time in the first half. I am getting used to the first British Nori for the first time and I am not tired. In addition to “DEFINITIVE HAMMERSMITH 1978”, it is the initial live than “DEFINITIVE IPSWICH 1978 (Zodiac 299)” which was released at the same time this week, and its playable power goes up one level.

It is the second upgrade master of the revolutionary era sound board, the shock. Manchester performance which I handed over to Hammersmith performance on the sound quality side. It is a super name board whose screws change directly into the brain just because the sound changes suddenly and it is the early schedule. Flame of the revolution only during debut. VH burning for the first UK championship. Please enjoy the truth with the furious sound board as much as you wish.

衝撃の新発掘には“続き”がありました! デビュー直後を代表するサウンドボードの新マスターがまたしても登場。永久保存プレスCD決定です。
先日、ド級の衝撃を巻き起こしたサウンドボード・アルバム『DEFINITIVE HAMMERSMITH 1978(Zodiac 296)』。初期VAN HALENを象徴する超有名サウンドボードがアップグレードを果たした、まさかの新発掘でした。本作もまた、同じルートからもたらされた新マスター。同じく彼ら初の英国ツアー「1978年5月22日マンチェスター公演」の極上ステレオ・サウンドボード録音なのです。先週の衝撃を見逃された方のためにも、今一度ショウのポジションをワールドツアー全容の中で確認してみましょう。


これが全世界に革命を巻き起こした1978年のワールドツアー。5月からのヨーロッパ巡業は彼ら初の海外公演でもあり、伝説的初来日の直前でもありました。先週リリースの『DEFINITIVE HAMMERSMITH 1978』は、「英国」ツアー14公演目でしたが、本作のマンチェスター公演はそれより10日前にあたる6公演目でした。このショウもハマースミス公演と同じく流出サウンドボードが知られていましたが、本作はそのアップグレード盤なのです。
そのサウンドで描かれる灼熱のロックがまた凄まじい。上記日程の通り、初渡英は約1ヶ月をかけて20公演も行う巨大なもの。その後も長いキャリアのうちにイギリス公演は何度か行われましたが、いずれもホンの数公演ばかりでツアーと呼べるのは1978年だけでした。これだけの長丁場だけに序盤と終盤ではだいぶコンディションも異なるのですが、その中で本作のマンチェスター公演は前半6回目。初めての英国ノリにも慣れはじめつつ、まだまだ疲れもない。『DEFINITIVE HAMMERSMITH 1978』だけでなく、今週同時リリースの『DEFINITIVE IPSWICH 1978(Zodiac 299)』よりも初期ライヴであり、その弾けるパワーはひと回り上を行くのです。
