グラハム・ボネット率いるALCATRAZZに加え、ジョー・リン・ターナーさらにドゥギー・ホワイトという、RAINBOWの歴代シンガーが揃ったスペシャル・ライヴ”VOICES OF RAINBOW”の2013年大阪公演が、超高音質オーディエンス・マスターで登場! 3枚組での特別リリース決定です!

2010年9月、RAINBOWの初代ヴォーカリストであるロニー・ジェイムズ・ディオを追悼するため、歴代のRAINBOWヴォーカリストが集結した”VOICES OF RAINBOW”は、RAINBOWを愛するファンに深い感動と喜びを与えてくれました。ジョーは2009年の”OVER THE RAINBOW”でも、リッチー・ブラックモアの息子ユルゲン・ブラックモアとともに各時代のRAINBOWナンバーを聴かせてくれましたが、この2010年はドゥギー・ホワイトとの共演や、グラハム・ボネットの再来日など、話題性では格段に上回っていました。このように余りにも”特別感”が強かったため、この”VOICES OF RAINBOW”は2010年の一回限りと思われていました。しかしこの2013年3月にまさかの二度目が実現。東京・名古屋・大阪の三都市で、ファンへ「二度目の夢」を見せてくれたのです。
本音源はその最終日に当たる3月14日の大阪公演を、超高音質オーディエンス・マスターで完全収録したもの。マイケル・シェンカーの2012年大阪公演やASIAの2012年名古屋公演、さらに今回同時リリースとなるJOURNEYの2013年大阪公演と同一ルートのマスターであり、その音質はすでに折り紙つき! 観に行けなかったファンには極上の追体験として、会場で観たファンにも最高の記念として、それぞれライヴを満喫させます!

ディスク1からディスク2の中盤にかけては、先に出演したジョーとドゥギーのステージを収録。開演前に流れていたDIOの「Stand Up And Shout」に続き、不動のオープニング「Over The Rainbow」そして「Spotlight Kid」でライヴは幕開け。たちまち素晴らしい盛り上がりが場内を包みます。抜群のクリアネスに加え、ジョーのヴォーカルがライン音源のようなリアルさで捉えられており、メロディアスな「I Surreender」や「Can’t Let You Go」ではジョーの真骨頂を楽しめるでしょう(演奏中は歓声が全く気にならないのも嬉しいポイントです。なお、録音を聴くと、ドゥギーはショウの最初からジョーのコーラスを務めていた事も判ります)。
「Death Alley Driver」の演奏後は、ジョーの紹介によりドゥギーが舞台に登場。前回の来日では取り上げなかった「Wolf To The Moon」を熱唱します(この日はドゥギーも東京公演以上に声が出ています)。「Black Masquarade」と「Hall Of The Mountain King」に続いては、この日最大級の聴き所である「Catch The Rainbow」が演奏されます。この場面は透明感のあるサウンドが絶品。「本当はライン音源ではないのか?」と思ってしまいそうな程、クリアに録音されています。そしてライヴの終盤では、ジョーとドゥギーの両名によるデュエットが続きます。特にサプライズ選曲だった「Kill The King」と「Burn」(この曲のみALCATRAZZのギタリスト,ハウイー・サイモンも飛び入り参加)は熱演で、驚きと興奮の中でセットを終了します。

そしてディスク2中盤からディスク3では、ALCATRAZZ Featuring Graham Bonnetの演奏を楽しめます。
2010年の来日でもオープニングだった「Assault Attack」でライヴはスタート。今回はそのとき以上にグラハムの声もよく出ており、三日間連続の疲れも感じさせません(マニアによれば「ここ数年の来日公演では一番調子が良いように感じた」とのこと)。さらに「Island In The Sun」や「God Blessed Video」,「Stand In Line」さらに「Eyes Of The World」と、グラハムの定番曲を素晴らしい録音状態で楽しめます。
ライヴ中盤の「Only One Woman」は来日最大のサプライズ。これはグラハムがキャリアをスタートさせたMARBLESナンバー(作曲はBEE GEESのバリー・ギブ)で、グラハムがRAINBOW入りする切っ掛けにもなった曲。グラハムとMARBLESで活動したトレヴァー・ゴードンに捧げられた演奏は、ファンを大いに感動させるでしょう。ライヴもうひとつの驚きが、「Since You Been Gone」に続き演奏された「Dancer」! 日本では初めての演奏となる同曲は、バンドのサポートも巧み。グラハムも水を得た魚のように活き活きと歌っています。
そしてお楽しみのアンコールではグラハム,ジョー,ドゥギーの三人が「All Night Long」と「Long Live Rock’N’Roll」を熱唱! 特に来日ラストの演奏となる「Long Live Rock’N’Roll」では出演者全員が登場し、ライヴは大盛り上がりの中で大団円を迎えます!

この”VOICES OF RAINBOW”ツアーは、現在のところ日本でしか行われていません。世界中のマニアにとって垂涎の企画といえるライヴを、最上級オーディエンス・マスターの本作で、ぜひお楽しみください! RAINBOWファンなら絶対に見逃せない一本が、嬉しい3枚組でここに特別リリース決定です!
