    perhaps that could be considered shared lead vocal?

    same with on the border (never mind your name)
    No. Singing one line does not amount to a 'shared lead vocal' any more than it does in On The Border. A shared lead vocal is a song like King Of Hollywood or What Do I Do With My Heart.

    I'm afraid the song is one of my least favourites & when I finally got to see it in 2015 I remained underwhelmed by it. It's a shame to say that now, I suppose, but it's the truth.

    I like Saturday Night, but the "Someone show me how to tell..." bit and the instrumental that follows are a disappointment. Off-topic, but I was replying to Freypower's comment above.

    That's a shame. Why didn't Bernie play mandolin during HOTE? (Or did he? I'm sorry, I didn't see them). There is some video of them doing Saturday Night live with just the 4 of them in 1973.

    Why indeed, if he didn't.

    He played banjo, I think. I don't remember him playing mandolin.

    Bernie did play mandolin back in the day, however for HOTE it was Steuart (I believe he played bits and pieces on the LROOE tour on mandolin if anyone can confirm); one report on here said at the venue they saw it at, you could see them playing off-stage.

    Not having Bernie present for Saturday Night aided the sequence of that opening portion for the History tour (though nothing would have stopped him playig off-stage, granted). Further, given how his mandolin and steel pedal work were omitted from the History tour (for example, he played acoustic guitar on Best of My Love), as well as by Henley in his little intro speech, I do not know if Bernie even plays mandolin or certain other instruments any more.

    I don't see why he couldn't play them for an Eagles show. He sure still played a B-bender like a master.

    A comment such as this is a very recent phenomena that just didn't exist before the internet and message boards, certainly not in 1980. There was no real separation of hits and obscurities, until artists started re-releasing their back catalogs on CD in the 90s.

    I remember seeing a Joe Walsh live set list for the first time in the early 80s and being very surprised to see James Gang tracks, Funk #49 and The Bomber listed. He's still playing them nearly 40 years later. They're obviously a lot more popular than I thought they were.

    Back in 1989,Paul McCartney caused a stir by playing many The Beatles 60s hits live for the first time ever. The conert ended with the previously unheralded Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End medley. I believe that McCartney has closed all his concerts with it since.

    You've made me realize YoungEaglesFan, that in 1981, when Eagles Live was released, the entire Eagles catalog was younger than the Long Road Out Of Eden tracks are now!

    Without going off topic, I find it hard to believe that the closing medley of Abbey Road was 'unheralded' but I am certainly looking forward to hearing it tomorrow night. It will be cathartic.

    What makes you say this?

    The live version from the Ď73 BBC concert is excellent.
