Amazing. This is
amazing, too amazing. QUEEN ... No, the treasure of Japanese Western music
history has been unearthed. QUEEN's first visit to Japan in 1975, which was
a major event that shook the archipelago. The original recording that
permanently preserves the first day is a shocking worldwide premiere!
Of course, what is
engraved in this work is the performance of "April 19, 1975: Nippon
Budokan". It is an audience recording that spells out the whole story. The
first visit to Japan for QUEEN is special. Along with the debut and the
breakthrough of the single "Killer Queen", it was an absolutely inevitable
event that would never be missed in any documentary. It's just that
important, so we archive it with many famous records. First, let's look back
on the schedule at that time while organizing the collection.
・ April 19: Nippon
Budokan ← ★ This work ★
・ April 22 "NAGOYA 1975"
・ April 23, "COMPLETE KOBE 1975"
・ April 25: Fukuoka City Kyuden Memorial
28, "FATAL ATTRACTION (Okayama)"
・ April 29, "TSUMAGOI 1975"
・ April 30: Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium
・ May 1st "BUDOKAN 1975 FINAL NIGHT:
Only representative works for each performance.
Above, all 8
performances. Even though it is called Budokan, I have introduced many works
on the last day, but this is the first permanent preservation on the first
day. Of course, the recording of the first day has existed so far, but this
work is different from them. It is an original recording that first appeared
in the world, which was handed over from the recorder himself.
Moreover, it is not just
the first appearance. Quality is also a threatening brand that sets a new
record high. In fact, the sound is so vivid that it will awaken your eyes.
Of course, it is in the category of vintage recording, but the core that
approaches the front is extremely strong, and the details are clear to the
finest parts. It doesn't feel like a soundboard at zero distance, but it
doesn't feel "far". Freddie's singing voice conveys not only the nuances of
each syllable, but also the nuances of each syllable, even if the choruses
overlap, and you can clearly understand not only the drums and guitar but
also the bass line.
Moreover, this work also breaks the longest
record of the historic first night. As a matter of fact, the new excavation
master this time may have been concerned about the remaining amount of tape,
and it is frequently paused between songs. There were quite a few missing
recording parts (the point here is "between songs". You can enjoy it almost
through the performance group). Therefore, in this work, all such recording
omission parts have already been patched. Not only all the songs of the day,
but all the existing scenes are permanently preserved.
The first day of the
once-in-a-lifetime meeting that flows out of this work …… How should I put
this impression into words? Although the performance itself has already been
experienced, the vividness and resolution are completely different. That
iconic Freddie's first MC "Konbanha! Konbanha! And good evening to
everybody. It's very nice to be here and your beautiful Japan !!" sounds
And the delight of Japan who witnessed "raw
QUEEN" for the first time is also recorded ultra-realistically. Especially
amazing is after "Ogre Battle". Freddie, who thought it was too dangerous,
calms the audience. Let's write it out for a moment.
Thank you. Now Listen !! Just Listen! Listen to me a minute ... Shuush!
Quiet! You're going to have to be careful. Calm down a bit Take it easy.
We're gonna be here for a long time, so don't rush so much. Don't rush the
front of the stage. Just take it easy, OK? Calm down and We're all gonna
have a good time. This is gonna be a nice evening (for) you and us! "
Listen! Listen a little
!! Quiet !! It's dangerous, calm down a little. Calm down. We are not going
home soon. Don't hurry so much. Don't push it in front of the stage. Let's
calm down and have fun together. Let's have the best night!
Then, we entered "Father
To Son", but the situation hasn't changed even after one song is over.
"We get a slow number now! You're gonna have to
quiet down a bit, so people don't get hurt. Please, take care of yourselves.
Just behave and listen!"
Next is a slow song. Be
a little quiet so that everyone doesn't get hurt. Please be careful. Listen
It was clear to every word of such a vivid MC.
The sound of this work is not "what Freddie is saying", but the unspoken
nuance of "what you feel and say" is clearly understood. The first day of my
first visit to Japan, which was a historic night, but there was no record of
satisfactory sound and it was never preserved forever. Such common sense
will end this week. A miracle live album where you can fully experience the
first night of the once-in-a-lifetime meeting with the best-in-class sound.
Press 2CD is nothing but a cultural heritage. Please experience it to your
★ First public audience recording of the first
day of the first visit to Japan "April 19, 1975: Nippon Budokan"
performance. With the new excavation of a threat that sets the highest
quality ever, the core approaching the front is extremely strong, and the
details are clear to the finest parts. Freddie's singing voice conveys not
only the nuances of each syllable, but also the nuances of each syllable,
even if the choruses overlap, and you can clearly understand not only the
drums and guitar but also the bass line. Moreover, the recording omission
between songs is compensated for by the existing recording, and the longest
record of the historic first night is also updated. The treasure of Japanese
Western music history, which is nothing but a cultural heritage, is born.
