I enjoy this album and do listen to it on occasion but this is a bittersweet recording. The band was getting fried to a crisp by the time this album was getting started. Some say this album pushed the limits of tolerance by all the artists as they pursued to the finish line. The massive concert dates during the recording of this album put such a strain on everyone involved thus causing everything to fall apart.
It is a classic album but it is like watching someone ride a horse to its death. Those who left the band as we know it today were the original pros and smart ones.
Our culture ensures every generation has its swan song and revival. In time people like myself fall away and the "iconic" music takes on a new meaning to the younger crowd. I believe we are seeing such a development now.

What can I say except this is one if their best. My favorite song is "Try to Love Again." I could listen to it over and over again. Of course all the songs are excellent. This is s must have for any Eagles fan!

Truly amazing

"This is one of the best dvd audio discs available, the voice is crystal clear and the guitar is very clean, also the drums, it has enough mid-bass in the 5 channels and not only on the sub-w channel. The price is super high but... they're not going to do more. By the way, if you have an Acura, the guy (Elliot Scheiner) who mixed this album is the same guy who designed the sound system (ELS stands for his name) in your car, so it sounds flawless."
Everything you need is on Greatest Hits, Vol 2

"The Eagles were never a country band but they had just enough of that flavor to make them distinctive. Lineup changes stripped the band of their unique sound and from this point on they became just another FM rock band. That's not to say that this album didn't turn out some good singles. "New Kid In Town" gets less airplay than some of the Eagles' tracks, making it the one tune from this collection that I still welcome.

The title track is one of their most popular classics but Don Felder, who wrote the exquisite introduction which defines this song, was shown the door after this album. The Eagles have since turned that intro into a wine and cheese number as their audience has aged. Also departing sometime between '76 and '78 were original members Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner. They were subsequently replaced by purveyor of soft rock Timothy B. Schmidt just in time for his "I Can't Tell You Why" to rub elbows on adult contemporary radio formats with "The Pina Colada Song".

Everything you need from this album - and this second phase of their career (1977-80) - is on Greatest Hits, Vol. 2. The rest of this album's tracks range from filler to pleasant to overlong; I couldn't imagine enduring them on an mp3 player even out of curiosity. "Hotel California" just doesn't hold a candle to their albums "Desperado" or "On the Border". Nice cover though."
