Back cover

It gave birth to Kano name live album “LIVE KILLERS” “JAZZ TOUR 1978-1979”. For the most classic is the rainy day upgrade! This work customer record album that contains the “December 1, 1978 Montreal performances”. Since ancient times as the “representative audience of JAZZ TOUR”, “superb sound of QUEEN history” in honor High name recording, we have created a masterpiece title such as “LIVE ACHIEVEMENT” “BEST OF MONTREAL”. This work, the upgrade board. Moreover, rather than like those prepared in remastered and equalizing, and I as recent years appeared in young Gene new excavations master.

Its sound, a different dimension with its outstanding. But drew a rave “the highest level among the many QUEEN audience recording of” 2005 to “further above the finest LIVE ACHIEVEMENT” even when it is from the emergence of “BEST OF MONTREAL”, it even does not become a problem. Originally, and though it was transmitted name record up to subtleties of playing in great balance, further, such as thin skin has been stripped two-three together musical tone is direct feeling is up several steps. Of course, you’re overflowing even without the audience recording reality unmistakable, but it is the vivid enough to become thought and cheer during a performance is quiet and “Kke I’m listening to the line?”.
However, it is the story being played. Great response to ultra-realistic when large cheer and Freddie Ma queue Lee that occur around the each end 1 songs toward the microphone. In broad wide venue, as we spread the smooth velvet carpet. If you said, “Now I’m Here” and vividness of dialogue with the audience in the “I’m In Love With My Car”! Of course, since the recording itself with its outstanding is the same, beginning and “Keep Yourself Alive” “Record’s own clapping sound is big” that does not have a change so the like. However, the atmosphere of the scene, which was confined to this work, hot as there is no wonder the taper would hit the hands involuntarily forget the recording. In fact, to do not taper sing loudly, and nor are clapping in songs. While not care about the recording and chitin, along with the enthusiastic performance and the hot air is increased, it has a profusely realistic “instinctively feeling that forgot to have Roku~tsu”.

So, taper is to record, it is because I love the band. So buy a ticket, buy the equipment, to record at any time I wanted to recall again and again impressed. You can easily QUEEN, and show me the impression, because you know that it makes us work. So I headed to the venue is scrupulously piled all the preparation. Applause Recording’s own should be a disadvantage if the original. And because this is just a high-quality recording, this taper must Re sleight of hand. Nevertheless, the feeling that had unintentionally hit the hand, comes through joy. Even the with each other through ’37 before the strangers of the taper and feelings, it’s the irreplaceable charm of the audience recording.
It is exactly this work said that “this 100% raw version of” LIVE KILLERS “”, but still “Kano name board of the full version of the” highest, even if also listened as. “Somebody To Love, which had been cut in Kano masterpiece “” If You Can not Beat Them, “” It’s Late, “” Fat Bottomed Girls “listen to 4 songs with plenty of, was also released from the frame of each analog one side, and I enjoy the natural flow of the concert. In addition, “LIVE KILLERS” is the European leg of 1 over March 1979, but the present work is the North American leg. While in North America it is the QUEEN of hardened completely popular in the big hit of “We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions” of the previous year, the momentum in this work is jammed in Pampanga, “North American ed of” LIVE KILLERS ” “It is there for any time (and therefore, was not played in North America leg” Do not Stop Me Now “is not).

“JAZZ TOUR 1978-1979” not only the best record has been upgraded, up to a single as “full version”, “North America Hen”, “this 100% raw version” of “LIVE KILLERS”. Live album you want spoke as “QUEEN I’m still the best!” To the recording’s 37 years ago that it is not also known face. This weekend, “QUEEN who won the Earth” will disturb you in your room.
