“No questions asked of ultra-name board”. The end.
…… No, no, I will explain properly. This work, latest remastered of “MONTREUX 1970,” which caused a whirlwind in 2010. Is this “remastered” is or was a point, but first from the basic description. If you know the existing airport, … a while now wait.

LED ZEPPELIN, DEEP PURPLE and sequence, BLACK SABBATH to represent the ’70s UK HR. However, when compared to both bands that identify and organize the live sound source progresses, it is not said that blessed unfortunately. Among such, Speaking of record who are recognized as “no questions asked great” from, “1970 Brussels (video, which has been referred to as the conventional” Paris 70 “),” “1975 Asbury Park”, and of this work “Montreux 1970” Big 3. The three, not official “LIVE AT LAST” “NEVER SAY DIE” even a problem, I just top in top.

※ Note: top version of the 1970 Brussels “THE ULTIMATE OZZY OSBOOURNE YEARS”, the top version of the 1975 Asbury Park is already in stock as “LIVE LONGEST … DIE AT LAST”. If those of non-experience (although I think …… not Irasshara), it all means.

Well, responsible for the corner of the sound source Big 3 “MONTREUX 1970” is, in 2010 to suddenly to transcendence sound board recording that has been excavated. Its contents, is the last day, Montreux performances August 31, 1970 debut album “BLACK SABBATH” tour, which celebrated its 45th anniversary this year. Its appearance and the other was a fuss. After all, five years ago did not know even that there was a live in “August 31, 1970”. And yet, because I’ve been jumped suddenly ultra-ultra-high quality sound board. The Ya its sound serving, well by far among the sound source Big 3, mono “Brussels 1970 (formerly Paris 1970)” What stage do you also referred to as the above …… than the video, even beyond the level of the live recording, studio album Beams Sound of. Moreover, initial BLACK SABBATH that has been recorded in the super sound quality, was “just now, in repainting the history”. Since recording of ultra-name board “PARANOID” is June 16 to 21, 1970, that two months later. It anymore, best of … (snip) in superb in superb in superb’s a British rock of …

Only tremendous so far, but the storm also compressed file on the net from the moment of appearance was raging, that was released as “original master itself” in such circumstances was a press album “MONTREUX 1970”. First press, sold out to it what “between say was with”. Unabated momentum in shades of Jacquet is different only in the second edition, it was I have also sold out.

This impact was also beyond the sea. According to the officials, how to obtain a press board of Tony Iommi and Giza? Butler himself “MONTREUX 1970” (the “LIVE LONGEST … DIE AT LAST”). It is said that much to Ai聴 (By the way, Ozzy Osbourne is so it was the end in “Hmm”: laughs). Question your identity our hearts even it’s a shock operation of shock Sakuchu that had to eagle Zukami!

5 years from the appearance was so of the incident, this time super-name board of “this I say with BLACK SABBATH” is, is why was revived in the latest remastered this time! Although I have become to long long prelude, finally main issue. Identity What is the of this work Meiutsu “DEFINITIVE”. It is “official sense remastered”. In fact, even when appeared incident five years ago, “it has been officially recorded, discovered during research for the bonus sound source of Deluxe Edition, eventually became the unpublished” it had been said. In fact, it also has is why it was clear of convincing, “Well, I had been really official release, kana?” Remains raw “far” and was also the a sound that seems also. Perhaps by performing a digital remastered, it …… or not it was to listen alongside the original album.

This time, to deliver “DEFINITIVE MONTREUX 1970”, has been remastered the “really I had been the official release?” Motif. Intact original ultra-clear sound, modern force, the dynamism has been dusted plenty. When you be honest, sound source with the In “meaning the weight of the” original as it is of “MONTREUX 1970” is by far great. Well another, Metchakucha great (So, please do not let go of the person who you have absolutely!). Did on affirmed up there, if you Ai聴 from the usual, I recommend this work. After all, it is familiar way of also excellent when I heard sprinkled with studio albums remastered CD. Sharpness sharp edges Standing, thundering bass of plump sounds comfortably. Is irresistible, really.

Also Iommi also always “debut album, was only live album of there are no spectators” Ozzy but says, Sashizume this work What “the stage version”. Was created a super-name board “BLACK SABBATH” “PARANOID”, “1970”. To special year in special just two, had even joined one.

Although it is your embarrassing story, Ever since then to hand this work, the recording order “because tour last day 1st album → this work → 2nd and Kana will listen in the order of the album” “Today in 1st album → 2nd album → this work as such will kana “try to repeat every day settlement. Subsequently you listened to as the “Iron Man and though why that after recording War Pigs is provisional lyrics that do wonder? … No way, do not remember yet!?”, etc., etc., as jumped almost 70 years. This fun, the real thrill to warp to ’45 before. Come, please experience you also in the press album.

Along with their 1974 performance at the California Jam and the glorious 1975 Asbury Park show, Black Sabbath‘s December, 1970, performance in Paris, France is among the group’s most famous bootlegs. Various snippets have made the rounds over the years — mostly video — but the soundboard audio from the show, coupled with the fact that it’s the original lineup in their Paranoid-era, was too good for me to pass up on eBay recently. Maybe it was posting the “N.I.B.” video last week that did it. Maybe it was the wine. Could go either way.

Whatever the case, it was one of those shows I had downloaded forever ago, but definitely of a quality worth owning physically. Even as Ozzy butchers the lyrics to nearly every song — “War Pigs” and “Hand of Doom” are especially brutal — the energy with which he does so practically punches you in the face through the speakers, and Bill Ward holds down “Black Sabbath” like I haven’t heard in any other era of the band. All the material was fresh, immediate, and fortunately, the sound on the War Pigs bootleg is good enough to capture that.

I’m pretty sure it’s a home-print job, inkjet, burner, whatnot, but it’s a silver-backed disc and I paid less than $20 for it, and in this age of sabboots, each of those is rare enough on its own that to have them both at the same time feels like getting away with something. If you’re into Sabbath bootlegs, you probably already have this show one way or another — I’ve never had much interest in collecting bootleg videos, but I know plenty of people who do — but if you don’t, it’s an essential piece to the catalog.

Interestingly (or maybe not), the track list on the back of the CD is wrong, and “Black Sabbath” is not the closer of the show, “Fairies Wear Boots” is. “Black Sabbath” comes after “Iron Man” — written as one word on the CD — though it kicks enough ass it could have just as easily ended the set. “Behind the Wall of Sleep” is another highlight, for Tony Iommi‘s hypnotic solo if not Geezer Butler‘s running bass, which is low on “War Pigs” to the point of needing to be adjusted on the EQ, but well worth the minimal effort of doing so.

There are plenty of other copies out there, and even if it’s a cheap inkjet knockoff that you’re getting, the War Pigs bootleg captures young Sabbath at their most vital and as they never would be again. If you see it, get it.

The 1970 Isle of Wight Festival was held between 26 and 31 August 1970 at Afton Down, an area on the western side of the Isle of Wight. It was the last of three consecutive music festivals to take place on the island between 1968 and 1970 and widely acknowledged as the largest musical event of its time, greater than the attendance of Woodstock. Although estimates vary, the Guinness Book of Records estimated 600,000, possibly 700,000 people attended. It was organised and promoted by local brothers, Ron and Ray Foulk through their company Fiery Creations Ltd and their brother Bill Foulk. Ron Smith was site manager and Rikki Farr acted as compere.

The preceding Isle of Wight Festivals, also promoted by the Foulks, had already gained a good reputation in 1968 and 1969 by featuring acts such as Jefferson Airplane, T. Rex, The Move, The Pretty Things, Joe Cocker, The Moody Blues (performed at the 1969 festival), The Who, and Bob Dylan in his first performance since his 1966 motorcycle accident.

The 1970 version, following Woodstock in the previous year, set out to move one step forward and enlisted Jimi Hendrix. With Hendrix confirmed, artists such as Cactus, Chicago, The Doors, Lighthouse, The Moody Blues, The Who, Miles Davis, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Jethro Tull, Sly and the Family Stone, Ten Years After, Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Free willingly took up the chance to play there. The event had a magnificent but impractical site, since the prevailing wind blew the sound sideways across the venue, and the sound system had to be augmented by The Who's PA. There was a strong, but inconsistent line up, and the logistical nightmare of transporting some 600,000 people onto an island with a population of fewer than 100,000.

Political and logistical difficulties resulted in the organisers eventually realising that the festival would not make a profit and declaring it to be "a free festival", although the majority of the audience had paid for tickets in advance, and the event was filmed contemporaneously. The commercial failings of the festival ensured it was the last event of its kind on the Isle of Wight for thirty-two years.

Upon the release of their first album in the late '70s, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers were shoehorned into the punk/new wave movement by some observers who picked up on the tough, vibrant energy of the group's blend of Byrds riffs and Stonesy swagger. In a way, the categorization made sense. Compared to the heavy metal and art rock that dominated mid-'70s guitar rock, the Heartbreakers' bracing return to roots was nearly as unexpected as the crashing chords of the Clash. As time progressed, it became clear that the band didn't break from tradition like their punk contemporaries. Instead, they celebrated it, culling the best parts of the British Invasion, American garage rock, and Dylanesque singer/songwriters to create a distinctively American hybrid that recalled the past without being indebted to it.

The Heartbreakers were a tight, muscular, and versatile backing band that provided the proper support for Petty's songs, which cataloged a series of middle-class losers and dreamers. While his slurred, nasal voice may have recalled Dylan and Roger McGuinn, Petty's songwriting was lean and direct, recalling the simple, unadorned style of Neil Young. Throughout his career, Petty & the Heartbreakers never departed from their signature rootsy sound, but they were able to expand it, bringing in psychedelic, Southern rock, and new wave influences; they were also one of the few of the traditionalist rock & rollers who embraced music videos, filming some of the most inventive and popular videos in MTV history. His willingness to experiment with the boundaries of classic rock & roll helped Petty sustain his popularity well into the '90s.

The group spent much of 1968 seeing the singles "Call Me Lightning," "Magic Bus," and "Dogs" -- inspired by Townshend's interest in dog racing -- fail to meet expectations. Track Records, squeezed for cash even with Hendrix's burgeoning sales, assembled Direct Hits, which compiled the band's recent singles (minus the Shel Talmy-produced Brunswick sides). In the United States, Decca Records -- with only two actual "hits" by the group to work with, plus "Magic Bus" (which did unexpectedly well on that side of the Atlantic) -- released Magic Bus, an unacknowledged compilation album built around the hit and drawn from U.K. singles, EPs and recent album tracks. It was misleadingly subtitled "The Who on Tour," and that's a lot of what they did in 1968, especially in the United States, but not the way they did in 1967; this time, they were playing places like the Fillmore East, where they recorded one show for a possible live album. This plan went awry when the show wasn't quite good enough to represent the group, and was abandoned entirely with the vast changes in their songbook in 1969. While making their first serious long-term headway in the U.S., the band -- mostly Townshend, in collaboration with Lambert on the early libretto -- were devising and recording a large-scale work.

Tommy arrived in May of 1969, more than a year and a half after The Who Sell Out. However, it was still unfinished -- the band wanted to add more instruments on certain songs, and Entwistle was particularly upset at the bass sound on the released recording. But they were out of money and options, so Tommy was released as a work-in-progress. And for the first time, the stars lined up in the Who's favor, especially in the United States. 

The serious rock press seized on the album as a masterpiece, while the mainstream press started to take rock music seriously. The Who were new and fresh enough, and Tommy ambitious enough, that it became one of the most widely reviewed and written-about albums in history. Tommy climbed into the American Top 10 as the group supported the album with an extensive tour where they played the complete opera. In some respects, Tommy became too successful. Audiences expected it to be done in its entirety at every show, and suddenly the Who were routinely playing for two hours at a clip. The work soon overshadowed the Who; it was performed as a play, redone as an orchestrated all-star extravaganza (starring Daltrey and featuring Townshend's guitar), and would eventually be filmed by Ken Russell in 1975 (the movie starred Daltrey). In 1993, Townshend turned it into a Broadway musical with director Des McAnuff.

Live at Leeds While Tommy kept the band busy touring for almost two years, how to follow it stumped Townshend. As he worked on new material, the group released Live at Leeds in 1970 (which yielded the hit single "Summertime Blues"), as well as the single "The Seeker," giving them some breathing room Eventually, he settled on Lifehouse, a sci-fi rock opera strongly influenced by the teachings of his guru, Meher Baba, that pushed the group into new sonic territory with electronics and synthesizers. The rest of the Who wasn't particularly enthralled with Lifehouse, claiming not to understand its plot, and their reluctance contributed to Townshend suffering a nervous breakdown. Once he recovered, the group picked up the pieces of the abandoned project and recorded Who's Next with producer Glyn Johns. Boasting a harder sound, Who's Next was a major hit, and many of its tracks -- including "Baba O'Riley," "Bargain," "Behind Blue Eyes," and "Won't Get Fooled Again" (which were both issued as singles), and Entwistle's "My Wife" -- became cornerstones of '70s album-oriented FM radio. The Who's Next tour solidified the band as one of the two top live rock attractions in the world along with the Rolling Stones. Suddenly their history was of interest to millions of fans; Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy, a 14-song retrospective of their singles, also sold in massive numbers.

Recorded over three nights in August 1972, Deep Purple's Made in Japan was the record that brought the band to headliner status in the U.S. and elsewhere, and it remains a landmark in the history of heavy metal music. Since reorganizing with singer Ian Gillan and bassist Roger Glover in 1969, Deep Purple had recorded three important albums -- Deep Purple in Rock, Fireball, and Machine Head -- and used the material to build a fierce live show. Made in Japan, its selections drawn from those albums, documented that show, in which songs were drawn out to ten and even nearly 20 minutes with no less intensity, as guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and organist Jon Lord soloed extensively and Gillan sang in a screech that became the envy of all metal bands to follow. 

The signature song, of course, was "Smoke on the Water," with its memorable riff, which went on to become an American hit single. But those extended workouts, particularly the moody "Child in Time," with Gillan's haunting falsetto wail and Blackmore's amazingly fast playing, and "Space Truckin'," with Lord's organ effects, maintained the onslaught, making this a definitive treatment of the band's catalog and its most impressive album. By stretching out and going to extremes, Deep Purple pushed its music into the kind of deliberate excess that made heavy metal what it became, and their audience recognized the breakthrough, propelling the original double LP into the U.S. Top Ten and sales over a million copies.
