The Eagles come home to the City which spawned them--Los Angeles, and to the newly renovated "Fabulous
Forum," former home of the Lakers and in past years, a world renown echo chamber concert hall.
However, the Forum has been completely reborn as a concert hall, so it has new comfortable seats,
acoustic paneling and a state of the art sound system which Glen Frey said was the "best sounding
concert venue in the world, and we've played them all."
Well, Frey may be over-selling the sound, as Los Angeles has the Hollywood Bowl and the Greek Theater,
but this was a great sounding show, although I had a whistler a few seats away, but through
some post recording processing, I've reduced his footprint considerably.
Much of the banter is about Los Angeles and the six years they spent here developing their sound and
their favorite haunts. So for the most part, it is probably meaningless to most of you out-of-towners.
But there is a dedication to Randy Meisner. Don Felder is not mentioned by the boys, which given the
the past lawsuits by the two and Felder's tell-all book, is not a surprise. Felder did contribute
to writing "Hotel California," the band most successful recording.
The Eagles have performed shows with this static set list for several years now, and the only other
Schoeps pulls were two fine recordings by Ed Tyre and Datfly in a couple Florida and New Jersey
shows last year. So I hope you enjoy this one from the Forum.
This is a long show, almost three hours of music, so you'll get a lot of bang for your buck.
Here are some quotes:
"We used to rehearse at an old at old shack in a parking lot at the Eastern end of the San Fernando
Valley in a parking lot next door to a liquor store, owned by Bud, who was thoroughly pickled most of
the time. That's right--It was convenient--free parking and booze." Don Henley January 16, 2014,
about coming back to LA where the Eagles were formed.
"This next song is dedicated to my first wife, Plaintiff." Glenn Frey January 16, 2014, dedicating the
song "Lyin Eyes to his ex-wfie, Texas debutante Janie Beggs
"I'm from Detroit, where 'Mother' is only a half a word. Glenn Frey, explaining the his tough Detroit

The true thanks go not to me, but to the taping community behind whose footsteps
I have followed, including those who have perfected the art of stealth
recordings, the makers of the stealthy mikes, cords, adapters, and preamps, and
those who have graciously shared their stealth recording techniques.
I am merely a mike stand with a credit card and driver's license.
As always, I don't care what you do with these files, once you download
them--they are yours now, except these files are not for sale, free
trade only. You can thank me by uploading something of a similar genre
or trading with me, so I can.
