Strongest source of tour Diamond Dave was shining in the highest reblogged upgrade! Man who had led the stage of the original VAN HALEN with dilute Naru showman-ship had kind, David Lee Roth. Speaking of the tour he was shining most dazzlingly with a diamond of nickname, or you’ll not an associated with “DIVER DOWN” “Hide Your Sheep Tour 1982-1983”. Genius Eddie Van Halen era there was fading impact of guitar revolution by, nearly half was occupied by the cover song “DIVER DOWN” was also the album that talent as his entertainer is at once close-up. The live “Hide Your Sheep Tour 1982-1983” In the play the song of the majority of the album, press also pressed the unexpected causes also is “The Big V” to resound the second piece of the name to the world as a sign.
This work, such “Hide Your Sheep Tour 1982-1983” is the audience album “October 27, 1982 Montreal performances” that has reigned as the strongest board. Maybe of VAN HALEN mania you also, might too unfamiliar with this schedule, venue. In fact, this recording sound source which became the Omoto of its outstanding “EVERYBODY WANTS A VIRGIN” known as the “November 18 Hampton performances”. This time, I have to get the Kano tour masterpiece of master clone in its own route. “That?” EVERYBODY WANTS A VIRGIN “is? Not a sound board” who is sharp you think. As a result of re-listen in younger generation of clear sound, actually I was found that it was hyper audience recording!

Or entered from even cut-in the beginning that it was not begin with a fade in the already issued, Duration but is clearly a master clone from the fact that long, uneven is above all the goodness of freshness of sound! From the fact that it has been misunderstood as “sound board” at the time of already issued, but is that try to find dense of the recording, further up the brightness with a jerk. In its outstanding right channel had been extremely high fall “Ice Cream Man” is also without degradation! In this film, even politely digital remastering there. Or there is some momentary lacking in song, although the drawback of such sound pressure changes on the way I can not to “never had it” to master due because of, to reduce to a minimum the discomfort. Freshness of Omoto master is intact, and I was finished with the highest quality you can feel the taste straight.
From being Buchikamasa in sound hyper first time has accelerated, just ride The Big V to paste! Lightly cut vivid thing Eddie the rampage over the beat to fly! There only have been expected for many years sound board certified, it seems to pierce ear to fine picking. And, Tatamikakeru in midfield show new song group of “DIVER DOWN” is also great. Indeed it is 12 songs during the 9 songs of a largess be showcased, but increase the quotient strokes increasingly sharpness of Dave was placed on the variety of songs, unlimited you want just spear freely. In particular, “The Full Bug”, fast and feel the actor sore to change the tone of voice Colo among the tempo, shout sharp, blues harp solo also to burst. Large enthusiasm of the audience to respond to it also fiercely, it is enough to want to try asking CD over “I’m new? The No so much love?” (Laughs). Become a now but is hidden tend album in the shadow of the next album “1984”, indeed There are only records that have enjoyed the season of the US third place.
Towards the ultimate masterpiece “1984”, VAN HALEN that started the sprint. Hear from this work is the diamond itself exactly shine and glare to try Kiwameyo vertices now. Big album many years of Ketteiban was further revived in vivid. Come and there be a trial!


ダイヤモンド・デイヴが最高に輝いていたツアーの最強音源がアップグレードしました! 類い希なるショウマン・シップでオリジナルVAN HALENのステージを牽引していた男、デイヴィッド・リー・ロス。ダイヤの異名を持つ彼が一番眩く輝いていたツアーといえば、「DIVER DOWN」に伴う“Hide Your Sheep Tour 1982-1983”ではないしょうか。天才エディ・ヴァン・ヘイレンによるギター革命の衝撃が薄れつつあった時代、半分近くがカヴァー曲で占められた「DIVER DOWN」は、彼のエンターテイナーとしての才能が一気にクローズアップされたアルバムでもありました。そのライヴ“Hide Your Sheep Tour 1982-1983”ではアルバムの大半の曲がプレイされ、押しも押されもせぬ“ザ・ビッグV”2枚目の看板として世界に名を轟かせたのです。
本作は、そんな“Hide Your Sheep Tour 1982-1983”の最強盤として君臨してきた「1982年10月27日モントリオール公演」のオーディエンス・アルバムです。もしかしたらVAN HALENマニアのあなたも、この日程・会場にあまりに馴染みがないかもしれません。実は、この音源は“11月18日ハンプトン公演”として知られる既発「EVERYBODY WANTS A VIRGIN」の大本となった録音。この度、かのツアー代表作のマスタークローンを独自ルートで入手しました。「あれ?『EVERYBODY WANTS A VIRGIN』はサウンドボードじゃない?」と思われた方は鋭い。より若いジェネレーションのクリア・サウンドで聴き直したところ、実はハイパーなオーディエンス録音だったことが判明したのです!

既発ではフェイドで始まっていた冒頭もカットインから入ったり、収録時間が長いことからもマスタークローンなのは明らかですが、何よりサウンドの鮮度の良さが段違い! 既発の時点で“サウンドボード”と勘違いされたことからも、録音の緻密さが分かろうというものですが、さらにその明度がグッと上がっている。既発では右チャンネルが極端にハイ落ちしていた「Ice Cream Man」も劣化なしです! 本作では、そこへさらに丁寧にデジタル・リマスタリング。いくつかの曲で瞬間的な欠けがあったり、音圧が途中で変わるなどの欠点はマスター起因ゆえに“無かったこと”にはできないのですが、その違和感を最小限に低減。大本マスターの鮮度はそのままに、その味わいをストレートに感じられる最高品質に仕上げたのです。
ハイパーぶりが加速したサウンドでぶちかまされるのは、まさにノリにノるザ・ビッグV! 軽快にカッ飛ばすビートの上を暴れ回るエディの鮮烈なこと! さすが長年サウンドボード認定されてきただけはあり、細かなピッキングまで耳に突き刺さるようです。そして、ショウ中盤で畳み掛ける「DIVER DOWN」の新曲群がまた凄い。実に12曲中9曲が披露される大盤振る舞いなのですが、バラエティ豊かな曲に乗せたデイヴのショウ運びはますます鋭さを増し、まさに縦横無尽のやりたい放題。特に「The Full Bug」では、速いテンポの中でも声色をコロコロ変える役者っぷりを感じさせ、シャウトは鋭く、ブルースハープのソロも炸裂させる。それに応える観客の大熱狂も凄まじく、「新作だよ? そんなに好きなの?」とCD越しに訊いてみたくなる(笑)ほどです。今となっては次作「1984」の陰に隠れがちなアルバムですが、さすがは全米3位の旬を謳歌している記録だけはあります。
究極の名作「1984」に向け、全力疾走を開始したVAN HALEN。本作から聞こえるのは、今まさに頂点を極めようとギラギラと輝くダイヤモンドそのものです。長年の決定盤がさらにビビッドに蘇ったビッグ・アルバム。ぜひ、お試しあれ!
