Actual miniaturized version of the 12" LP in 4" CD version. The Eagles' seventh album Eagles Live was released in November of 1980. The 1980 portions consists of spirited versions of Hotel California which is arguably better than its studio counterpart with Don Felder's excellent Gibson double neck guitar and Joe Walsh's Fender Telecaster work, a rocking Heartache Tonight, a soulful I Can't Tell You Why, a soul-tinged The Long Run featuring some excellent alto sax work from Phil Kenzie(whom played on Al Stewart's Year of the Cat and Time Passages albums), a laid-back unplugged Saturday Night, a stellar Life in the Fast Lane and the closing extended rocking Take it Easy which is better than its studio counterpart with some excellent guitar work from Walsh at the end. Also included the band's take on two of Walsh's solo tracks Life's Been Good(arguably better than the original) and the then new track All Night Long which buried the sterile sounding version on the Urban Cowboy Soundtrack. Lastly, it featured the acoustic Seven Bridges Road which was a country number the band would play in rehearsal(see the 1977 Hotel California concert film for proof) and would be the band's last hit for 14 years. The songs recorded from 1976 featured New Kid In Town and Wasted Time which were at the time the performances were recorded unreleased, an unEarthly version of Take It To The Limit with original bass player Randy Meisner hitting an A flat to F Sharp near the end and given a STANDING OVATION for it. Lastly, Doolin-Dalton Reprise II was an orchestral interlude to Desperado which was a good version. Eagles Live upon release hit #7 on the album charts and quickly hit Platinum status. Millions have been sold since then. Recommended for real EAGLES FANS. Track Listings Disc: 1 1. Hotel California 2. Heartache Tonight 3. I Can't Tell You Why 4. Long Run 5. New Kid in Town 6.
