    There is only one official recording of SBR and thatís the one from the 1980 live concert. So yes itís the same. As YEF pointed out, there was a discussion about the deconstructed SBR video on one of these threads. Only then can a person tell that Don H filled in brief gaps during Glennís part, presumably b/c Glenn wasnt interested in coming back to the studio to dub in these parts himself. Normally I donít think itís obvious.

    The Ď76 Seattle version is a bootleg and not an official release. Personally I wasnít interested in downloading the whole Live album from iTunes, just the tracks I wanted. But if you donít already have SBR, I would definitely suggest getting it b/c itís such a classic display of Eagles harmonies (I have it already on GH 2).

    Happy birthday Eagles Live, one of the finest studio albums the Eagles ever put out.

    I'm not a fan of live albums in general, but I reserve special contempt for Eagles Live. As FP alludes to, from the overdubbing so prolific they may as well have just recorded them again from scratch to the inclusion of material not days but practically half a decade apart there is nothing to write home about at all. I am still waiting for someone to explain what on earth the 42 seconds of noise entitled 'Doolin-Dalton Reprise II' is; if you are going to include an orchestral solo (which shows how utterly desperate they were IMO) at least do them justice and make it something both substantive and actually remarkable.

    Groupie - I purchased the Very Best Of cd when it came out. I like it and listen to it quite often. Like Pippin said, you can listen to it before you buy it.
    As for Eagles Live, I have not listened to it in many years. I remember the crap they took when it came out. If I remember right, critics called it the most over dubbed live album ever released - lol.

    I love the Seattle bootleg. They do a great job with SBR and Randy sounds beautiful. I also think the version with Randy and Bernie must have sounded awesome. Like I said in the other thread for the 40th Annv. of HC, I wish the third cd was remastered LIVE concert footage instead of the high def of HC. If that had been done I would have no problem spending the $100 bucks. JMHO.

It is overdubbed to hell, and the inclusion of songs from 1976 demonstrates that they had run out of ideas.
    Itís weird, you canít really hear it on the record but if you listen to the isolated tracks itís very clear. Itís disappointing. For example like ďsouthward as you goĒ in the intro is don. Most of the last part is don singing. Itís unfortunate

    I'll just stick to the official recording then, thanks.

    However, I am now listening to that video, and right at the beginning, there is Glenn singing 'southward as you go'. So I don't really know what you are referring to. I mean they were singing harmonies, right? So there are multiple parts!

    I'd never noticed it, either.

    I guess by definition a reprise without the context of the actual song is not really a reprise at all....That one didn't make any sense. Obviously just filling up album space.

    Maybe itís not that line but there are a few times Don comes in for Glennís parts. The last part is the most obvious with the switch in and switch out. He is singing the same notes as Glenn but with his voice. I canít listen to it but on a thread on here and on elsewhere Iíve seen people say itís donís part. It was something I just didnít know and itís impossible on the record to hear

    In general the SBR individually wasnít that great. Joe does not sound good (though his part is impossible to hear besides the part where he goes down on ďas you goĒ, Glennís part is broken up by don, Felder did his part in the studio, Henley sounds good but I think thereís some overdub. Timothy was fine but I think he sounds weak at times. Randyís voice was better for that song. But it still sounds great so that speaks volumes about the standard we have

    A thought that just occurred to me about SBR. Why was this song not on The Long Run? All the stories you hear is how they didn't have anything finished, and how big a struggle the song writing was during this album.
    It would have made sense. It was a song they did live, so fans would know it.
    Has anyone heard this answered?
