Thread: Proof of Try and Love again played live

    Default Proof of Try and Love again played live

    I havenít posted in a very long time but I saw an article by chance that I felt some of you would be interested in seeing. I was looking up the capital center performance but I came across a concert review from the Washington post from 1977. Although itís fairly negative towards the band, it does confirm that try and love again was played. Though it was unfortunately pointed as being a low point, saying that Randyís lead was too whiny. Despite that, this is still cool to read.

    heres the link to the article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/archi...=.c4d9cd1e90c2

    Hi, YEF, how have you been?

    Yes I do remember reading that review awhile back. Maybe thatís why the song was dropped from the setlistóhis vocal performance wasnít strong enough. It could be Randy just had a bad night or maybe the reviewer had a bone to pick with him and the band and was reaching. He sounds fine when he performed it at his solo concert in Huntington Beach.

    Anyway, thanks for posting the link.

    Well YEF - Glad to see you've come out of hiding.

    Thanks for the link. I think we had established quite a while back that Try and Love again was performed live, but I don't remember what thread(s) the discussion was in.

    It was not usual for the band to get these kinds of reviews back in the day. They were never the darlings of the critics. And this last paragraph - wow ...

    Outside, before the show, scalpers were selling tickets for as much as $25, suggesting that these two concerts are the pop event of the year thus far and that the Eagles are rock's most popular all-American band.
    I don't even know where to start. But, to be fair, $25 was probably more than double the cost of a regular ticket at the time.

    Thanks for welcoming me back! I was just posting this as more definitive proof rather than relying on setlist.com and such. It was also the first Iíve seen anywhere where the performance was talked about.

    Hi YEF - Welcome back ! Thanks for finding that review, I have never seen it before.
    Yikes - that review hurts. Boy, the critics sure did not like the group back then. I love that concert ! $25.00 would have been a lot of money for a concert back then. A concert back then was around $7 to $10 dollars if I remember right.
    Like Dreamer said, we had established that TAlA was played in concert. I think it was also performed at MSG, which I believe they had played right before the Capital Center.

    Yes I have a video of them playing it, The tape seems to be non existent anywhere else and it actually a rarity. I feel like if I do anything with it I'll have people going nuts asking for it as it's a whole concert from 1976 that hasn't surfaced anywhere else
