“THE WORKS JAPAN TOUR 1985” which became the last visit to QUEEN. The
world’s first public full master who delivers the best performances of the
world is a new excavation of shock. It is appearance in permanent
preservation press 2CD!
What was recorded on the master cassette
excavated beyond the time of 34 years is the “May 8, 1985: Nippon Budokan”
performance. It is an audience recording that completely recorded the whole
story. In our store, we archive the last Japan tour with numerous
masterpieces. First of all, let’s check the position on the schedule.
・ May 8: Nippon Budokan [This work]
・ May 9 “DEFINITIVE BUDOKAN 1985
・ May 11 “DEFINITIVE FINAL CONCERT IN TOKYO” & official
May 13 “DEFINITIVE NAGOYA 1985”
・ May 15 “DEFINITIVE OSAKA 1985”
(Note: Only representative works on each day)
Above, all 5 performances. The beginning is two consecutive performances
of Nippon Budokan, and this work is the first day. The Budokan has been
introduced with the press title from the second day to the last Osaka, but
it was difficult for the first day. The recordings that have been known so
far are harsh sounds to listen to, or only half of the good sounds have been
recorded. Despite the last Japan tour of QUEEN, a matomo live album was not
realized only on this day.
However, such a toothy history ends this week.
Finally, the sound recording full recorded with the wonderful sound was
excavated. That is this work. It is not an adhesion recording that makes a
mistake with the sound board, but the breezy beauty is excellent. After all,
it is the original original cassette which was handed over from the
recording person, and the freshness which does not go through dubbing is the
The core recorded from the front of the arena has a clear
feeling of air, and the atmosphere that fills the Budokan 34 years ago with
no distortion or twisting blows out from the speakers. When you close your
eyes, that octagonal space will float, and it is a reality that even unique
smells tickle your nasal cavity. Especially wonderful is the calm song. The
acoustic guitar which is played in the middle stage “Is This The World We
Created?” Has a delicate sound, one grain of sound, and Freddie’s singing
voice which is extended to a long time accompanied by a hall sound, it
sounds like a solemn like a church Tell. In the further “Love Of My Life”, a
large chorus follows the beauty world. Sound that melts to the heart in the
beautiful harmony. Until now it was the highest peak sound quality of Nippon
Budokan on the first day (instead of only in the first half) “FINAL BUDOKAN
NIGHTS” and full show with a sound of the same level. As a matter of fact,
there is a momentary tape change after the end of “Radio Ga Ga”. You will
also realize how wonderful this new excavation master is from the fact that
the sound drops in this moment.
Moreover, the performance itself is
also the highest peak. In fact, this day is well known for its excellent
performance even in the 1985 Japan tour. Freddie’s tired appearance on the
official “FINAL LIVE IN JAPAN” makes it worse to the image of the whole of
1985, but this first day is completely different. From the opening to a good
tone, promised greetings also “Convenir! Ikagadesuka! Is Everybody Happy !!
Under Pressure !!” Even if the improvisation at the beginning of “Somebody
To Love” is just good at measuring Freddie’s voice, his voice is strong, and
the free vibrato is excellent. It sings in a pleasant and colorful manner,
as if the voice of one’s voice is extended forever. The energetic energy is
also felt by “Ay-Oh”. While the voice itself is deep and rich, the phrase to
be thrown to the audience is completely different from usual. The familiar
pattern does not flow, and it is understood that I enjoy the moment every
moment so as to bite the joy that has come back to Japan. If Freddie is at
its best, there is nothing scary about QUEEN. An ensemble that pulls and
pulls through the whole piece, and “Keep Yourself Alive” of the life is
decided to be a busy. Speaking of the top of QUEEN, “LIVE AID” is the
universal recognition of the whole world, but this Budokan first day is a
majestic as if that peak performance became full scale. This work is a live
album where you can experience the scene 100% real life.
enthusiasm of the scene is what makes the Daimyo performance even more
vivid. This work is a type that not only the playing sound comes in contact,
but rather a vacuum pack in total at the venue. The reaction of a real
audience is also felt vividly. For example, “Somebody To Love”. Freddie
weaves the improvisation of the piano at the ending, but the audience
quickly responds to it, and the sea of clapping spreads, and it will be
perfect even if it accelerates. If the improvisation is changed to “Killer
Queen” as it is, the venue will also explode! After that, clapping hands and
screams sway to the intricately changing tunes, and it is rising rapidly.
This exquisite sense of breathing. It is only in Japan that continues to
love QUEEN and concentrate on music. The enthusiasm of the audience inspires
Freddie’s passion, and the enthusiasm makes the audience even more excited.
Although they say “live is a living thing” and “a spectator is a part of a
show”, a daimyo performance is assembled by the interaction. Because it is a
full recording, you can taste its dynamism in full.
Nippon Budokan the second day which was a major performance that
unrivaled in the last Japan tour. It is the world’s first publicized master
who gives a full experience of the site. It is one that will make the 1985
Japan-Japan collection perfect, but it is a full live album full of
enthusiasm and excitement. Please enjoy it with perpetual preservation press
