So, when was this recorded? I have found tour dates in Australia for January of 1975 and 1976 but they are obviously touring the “One Of These Nights” album here, which was released in June of 1975 and the best website I could find on the Eagles touring & live recordings history lists no recordings from the 01/1975 dates but several for the 1976 tour start, so I”m going with that year. I’m spending so much time on this to find out in which year the SODD label got its start.
Set list from Osaka shows in early February of 1976:
1 Take It Easy
2 Outlaw Man
3 Doolin-Dalton/Desperado (Reprise)
4 Turn to Stone
5 Lyin’ Eyes
6 You Never Cry Like a Lover
7 Take It to the Limit
9 Midnight Flyer
10 One of These Nights
11 Already Gone
12 Too Many Hands
13 Good Day in Hell
14 Witchy Woman
15 Rocky Mountain Way
16 James Dean/The Best of My Love
17 Funk #49
18 Oh Carol
19 Tequila Sunrise
Compare to the track list of the SODD double:
Take it Easy / One of These Nights / Turn to Stone / Outlaw Man / Doolin-Dalton / Desperado / You never Cry Like a Lover / Midnight Flyer / Already Gone / Tequila Sunrise / Early Bird / Foggy Mountain Breakdown / Witchy Woman / Take it Easy II
Source for sides 1 – 3 confirmed as a decent quality audience recording from Sydney, Australia on January 27, 1976.
Side 4 (starting with ‘Tequila Sunrise’): “ABC-TV In Concert” from the Santa Monica Civic Center, August 3rd, 1973. with the exception of the last song, which is most likely from California Jam, as it was broadcast as the only Eagles’ track on May 10th 1974 in show # 32 ‘California Jam part one’.
Reissued in ’78 on TAKRL 24901 with a b&w cover:
And after that as the third and very rare release on the Terrific Tunes label, pressed from the original SODD plates with the matrix crossed out and TAKRL number added. Record one has Spunk labels and record two has Monique D’Ozo labels.
In my opinion, the following is a fake ZAP title, using a number(1849) they knew ZAP would not use as their series started with 1850. Note the Anti Gravity label and atypical cover design.
Side 1: Take it Easy (5:20) / Outlaw Man (5:30) / Doolin’ Dalton (6:23) / Desperado (2:37) / One of these nights (4:10)
Side 2: Turn to Stone (9:00) / You Never Cry Like a Lover (4:18) / Midnight Flyer (4:32) / Already Gone (5:13)
Hot Wacks description: Exs. S: Sydney, Australia Jan. 27 ’76 Very limited pressing (one eBay seller claimed 500; it is certainly a rarer title)
Also available on Anti Gravity 102 as:
First edition was on black & blue ‘splatter’ vinyl.
