The La's - Callin' All (Polydor:5326495)
The Las - Callin All
Amazonで詳しく見る

80年後半から90年と言う短い期間にオリジナルアルバム(過去レビュー)を一枚リリースしただけの活動ながらも、多くの賞賛を浴びたギターポップバンド・The La's。タイムレスなポップなメロディーと実に単純なアコースティックサウンドだけで聴く者を魅了した素晴らしいバンドですが、実はアルバムに関しては過剰にプロデュースされたと本人達は余り気に入っていなかった様です。本人達としては荒くて粗雑だとしても、もっと生々しくライブの様な音を表現したかったとか。そんな彼等の思いに応えたのが、4枚組の本作。デモトラックやリハーサル音源、ライブ音源などこれまで世に出る事の無かった未発表音源全92曲を収録。曲はかなり被っているし、ラフな演奏に録音でお世辞にも綺麗な音とは言えず、これに価値を見出す人は本当に極少数だとは思いますが、それでもこれこそがThe La'sが求めていた剥き出しの音と言う物は感じられます。そしてやはりThe La'sのポップなセンスは超一流、シンプルな歌が何故に心をこうも震わすのか。ただただ素直に良い曲だなと20年経った今でも思います。60ページにも及ぶブックレットには、当時のライブ写真やフライヤー、EPの素敵なジャケットなどが収録されていて、ファンには堪らない内容となっております。
