Legend LP also known as “QUEEN’s earliest boot
leg”. The highest peak ever in its history appeared in permanent
preservation press CD.
That legendary board is “THE ROYAL AMERICAN TOUR
1975”. It is an audience recording of “Santa Monica Performance (Late Show)”
on March 29, 1975, which is a part of “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR”. Of course,
unlike the official work, there is no detailed record of the release date in
the boot leg, I can not conclude that this LP is really the oldest. However,
as long as it is known, it is the oldest, at least the “oldest one” is an
However, simply old is not enough as a legend.
True value is its quality. Distant feeling is not entirely in the very on
sound, it is wonderfully delicate. The piano and the guitar are engraved
beautifully until touched, and the rhythm of the modest high hat is clear.
Even the breath feeling flowing into the microphone is reached to vivid,
even to vocal. It is hard to believe that this is a mid-1970s recording ……
No, the modern standard of digital primeval is a beautiful sound of a level
called a name recording more than enough.
Besides, the sound continued to be ultimate up to
now. Historic name recording is something that primitive is pursued. Many
name recordings were explored to the master master reel and cassette, new
tops have been updated as complete version and upgrade / grade board. This
Santa Monica performance was also being explored, but it was not renewed for
some reason. Whatever the traders wanted, the “original” of 12 song LPs
could not be found out, no matter how much the researcher searched for. In
other words, the ultimate form of this recording was the original LP itself
that was released in the 70’s. Many copies LP and CD raising CDs have been
produced during the long history, but the highest peak is still the original
release LP “Wizardo Records WRMB 307”.
And this work digitized the original LP cash in
the highest quality. We used the mint quality board found by QUEEN
specialized overseas researchers and played it in a high end environment
specialized for analog raising. The accuracy is beyond the common sense of
“analog raising” so far. It is a pirate LP in the 70’s, but there is almost
no needle patch, and the luxurious sound is beautiful, and it is
unbelievable stability feeling superb. Even now in Japan, CDs are still
popular, but the restoration of analog is remarkable overseas, and the
accuracy of digitization has dramatically improved. The combination of such
state-of-the-art technology and the mint board which mania found with
obsession made the miracle sound realized.
A wonderful thing of the show drawn with such
highest sound … …. “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR” has realized the famous first
visit to Japan, but let’s check the position of the show with its overall

This is the outline of the world tour. In
1974, we went around Europe, and in 1975 the flow of North America and
Japan. Among them, Santa Monica’s performance of this work corresponds to
the 17th performance of “North America # 2”. In other words, it was an
upcoming show called countdown status until the legendary first visit to
caught in this work is the enthusiasm that reminds me of the very first
visit to Japan. Although it is unrecorded in the first half of the show just
as an analog one piece, it can taste from the middle stage to the last of
the great circle. Although it will fade even with the guitar solo of ‘Son
And Daughter’ which is the turn of the AB side, since the solo that can be
heard there is developing, there is no sense of familiarity and it seems to
try various phrases. That is Roger as well. I tried various sounds with
“Keep Yourself Alive” drum solos and “Liar” and are searching for colorful
sounds. QUEEN at that time created a new rock for each work, but it does not
suddenly finish in the studio. I always kept curious, and I did not miss
challenges even once at the stage. You can experience such ingenuous show
with fresh sound.
It became somewhat strange to say, but it seems to be fun QUEEN. Freddie’s
knot is in perfect condition, singing voice grows in growth, explosive tense
nori pierces heaven. MC got on a tune, and after “Flick Of The Wrist” it is
John Deacon of the bassist who is there, seeing that his pants are torn!
“Brian said” Fair “and put a hand in hand. Although I am sorry for the
audience, such a light tact is coupled with the best condition and it is a
wonderfully good atmosphere show.
This sound, this show. This is the “real sound” that
has attracted the world by informing the world of “Queen’s stage”. One piece
that made such a legendary recording revived with the highest quality ever.
The top of the Santa Monica show which still does not exceed. Please, enjoy
with the permanent preservation press CD fully.
