Discover the unknown treasure of “SHEER
HEART ATTACK TOUR” over 45 years! Urgent, permanent storage press decision!
This work is the first appearance master who is now shocking the world. It’s
neither an upgrade nor a separate recording. It is an audience recording of
“February 16, 1975 New York Performance (Night)”, which has never been
recorded. Speaking of “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR”, it is also the official
live album “LIVE AT THE RAINBOW ’74”, and the legendary first visit to Japan
is also realized. What kind of position is this work in such a situation?
First of all, let’s look back and check the schedule of those days.

This is the whole view of “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR”. The tour started in
Europe with a large number of votes, and in 1975, when the year changed, the
circuit was held in North America and Japan. When it comes to North American
tours in 1975, we are familiar with the two major names in our store, “THE
ROYAL AMERICAN TOUR 1975” and “MILWAUKEE 1975”, both of which are “North
America # 2”. In contrast, the New York performance of this work was the
12th performance of “North America # 1”.
This work that conveys such
an early show is a vintage audience with a deep taste. Above all, the
freshness is fresh. After all, this new excavation is the first debut of the
1st Gene Cassette. It’s not a type that mistakes it for a sound board, but
it has a wonderful clear air feeling that I can’t think of it 45 years ago,
and a powerful core jumps in the middle of it. The clearness is clear enough
to understand each word of the lyrics, and the attack sound of the bass that
is often spoiled in audience recording is clearly heard.
even so, it’s a vintage master. Actually, the original sound that appeared
on the net was distorted (especially in the latter half), but this work was
further refined with meticulous mastering. While maximizing the sound of the
master itself and the reality of the original sound, we pursued the
smoothness that can be enjoyed as a musical work as much as possible.
show drawn with such a sound is a show that youthful energy blows out while
concentrating and reducing the initial three pieces. The set is very similar
to the November performance of “LIVE AT THE RAINBOW ’74”, but not exactly
the same. This is also a good opportunity, so let’s organize it here.
● QUEEN (3 songs)
・ Son And Daughter / Keep Yourself Alive / Liar
QUEEN II (5 songs)
・ Procession / Ogre Battle / Father To Son / White
Queen (As It Began) / The March Of The Black Queen
● SHEER HEART ATTACK
・ Now I’m Here ／ Flick Of The Wrist ／ In The Lap Of The Gods ／
Killer Queen ／ Bring Back That Leroy Brown ／ Stone Cold Crazy ／ In The Lap
Of The Gods … Revisited
● Others (3 songs)
・ Big Spender / Modern
Times Rock’n ‘Roll / Jailhouse Rock
… And this is how it looks. Roughly speaking, it’s a set without “Seven
Seas of Rhye” from “LIVE AT THE RAINBOW ’74”, but the performance that
spells it is extremely hot. Historically, six lectures were scheduled
between “North America # 1” and “North America # 2”, but canceled due to
Freddie’s sickness. Since it was “North America # 1” just before that, I
wouldn’t have heard any voice … I thought it was really good! ▽ Because of
the serious American invasion that followed last year, the beat is intense,
and the guitar is also fierce. Freddie’s shout who followed it is also an
aggressive and unbelievably mood. Perhaps Freddie’s upset was only in the
last few performances of “North America # 1”. In this work, it’s equivalent
to the restored “North America # 2” … but it’s a great performance that
seems even more than that.
Even so, it was said that such a recording
was still asleep. It is rare for a band to have a boom of re-evaluation as
much as QUEEN, and sound source discovery has progressed each time. For that
reason, the fact that such a treasure recording has popped out since 1975,
when it was thought to be exhausted, is a shock. The highest peak board that
has refined the new excavation master as much as possible. Please enjoy the
permanent preservation press CD!
