Eagles / One Of These Lives Spectrum Night 1975 / 2CDR+1Bonus DVDR / Uxbridge
Live At Spectrum Philadelphia PA USA 17th May 1975.
Play sample :
From the North American tour one month before the release of “One Of These Nights” in 1975, the Philadelphia Spectrum performance on May 17 was completely recorded for 1 hour and 45 minutes with high-quality audience recording. It is the final stage of the Eagles when he was enrolled in Bernie Lindon, and it is a new sound source that has never been released before. It is a very high quality sound source that is captured with an on-sound that can be said to be exceptional for the audience seat recording of this era, and the powerful group of the band is directly transmitted from the powerful sound with outstanding separation. .. You can enjoy a fascinating performance that can be said to be the culmination of the initial lineup for all songs. From the initial three pieces of famous songs, a well-balanced set is full of listening places. The profound and rocky taste is unique to this time of year. It seems that the PA sound has solidified around Outlaw Man following the opening Take It Easy, and after that, all the fans will be impressed by the wall of the angry superb sound quality. The performance of Doolin’Dalton / Desperado Reprise, which is played with a different mood, is impressive. After that, early masterpieces will be shown one after another. The eighth song, the new song One Of These Nights, will be performed with a lively live arrangement. The bluegrass standard Blackberry Blossom is followed by a full listening to Bernie Lindon’s stunning play. The country-style Midnight Flyer is followed by The Journey Of The Sorcerer and Too Many Hands from their new album. On the contrary, it is fresh that Lyin’Eyes and Take It To The Limit from the new work are not incorporated, reminiscent of the transition period of the band. Good Day In Hell, James Dean, Witchy Woman and the powerful performance that closes the main set is a masterpiece. Encore is the 1975 tour classic Chug All Night, Best Of My Love, Tequila Sunrise. The sound image is stable until the last, and the listening response is perfect. It sounds like a cassette master at the time, but it’s wonderful that you don’t feel much deterioration, and you can listen to it without stress.
★ This is a review summary of beatleg magazine vol.131 (June 2011 issue). For your reference.
Recently, a nostalgic sound source of Eagles who succeeded in visiting Japan for the first time in 11 years has appeared. A two-disc set containing the performance of the Philadelphia Spectrum on May 17, 1975. The first performance in Japan was in February of the following year, but during that time the original member Bernie Leadon left and Joe Walsh joined, so even the tours of the same period are characterized by completely different contents. Audience recording is monaural, but surprisingly super high quality. If you apply compression to this master, the sound pressure will be so dense that you can call it the world of FEN. If there is no applause between songs, the sound quality is almost like a studio live. The set list is full of nostalgia for fans of yesteryear, especially “Train Leaves Here This Morning,” “Midnight Flyer,” and “Journey Of The Sorcerer,” which wouldn’t be possible without Bernie Leadon. “Journey Of The Sorcerer” is a unique instrumental song in the masterpiece “One of These Nights”, and it is a hidden masterpiece that beautifully expresses the dark world as if it were a progressive rock when first heard. I’m deeply moved to hear it in the live version. In addition, “Outlaw Man”, “Good Day In Hell”, “Chug All Night”, etc., which are never performed in the current live performance, will be performed in a norinori style. The beauty of the chorus, which is one of the charms of the Eagles, is also exquisite, and the perfect harmony that is not disturbed at all even in live performances is truly. After joining Joe Walsh, his solo songs will be featured, which will reduce the Eagles repertoire, but I’m glad that all of this time is composed only of the band’s songs. It’s a very satisfying 2 hours. Must-listen for Eagles fans!
