    Yes, you can download it from itunes or Amazon. If you'd rather have a hard copy you should be able to find some on Amazon.

    Thanks for posting that, wc. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that song. But I have to admit, I like the Eagles HC version best. To me, it has more energy and the harmonies are fuller and more melodic.

    It is cool that he did the song, though, since as far as I know the Eagles never performed it live.

    Oh - I absolutely agree. I would love to see that song live. It is very puzzling why the Eagles didn't perform it during the Hotel California tour. I don't remember ever reading or hearing anything ever discussed about why they didn't. Did I miss something?

    Randy seemed to be having a difficult time vocally during the Hotel California tour. Remember how nervous he was about singing "Take It to the Limit" and hitting all the notes, despite the fact that Glenn said Randy brought the house down every time he did it. "Try and Love Again" would be just as vocally strenuous, if not more so.

    By 1982, he seems to have regained his confidence, or perhaps his voice was more rested.

    Of course this is just speculation, but it makes sense to me. At any rate, I'm so glad that he did the song and that we have a clean recording of it thanks to the release of "Live in Dallas." I think it is an album every Randy fan should have.

    Just bumping this thread because it was 30 years ago today that he finished recording the performance.

    Bumping this thread because it's once again the anniversary of this concert. Wish there were video of it available!

    Very true. At least he can take comfort in the fact that his efforts were not in vain and what he created has enriched the lives of millions. In the end, as attractive as he is, it's the music that matters.... And will continue to matter, long after all of us are gone.

    I prefer Randy's vocal performance in the produced, recorded version. The live version is nice, I had not heard it before. In another thread somewhere on these boards, it was reported in recent months that the Eagles did perform TALA live on the HC tour in NJ or NY - the poster was at the show.
