    I feel that Glenn's guitar solo on TALA is up there with the best he's ever done. Glenn was a very underrated guitar player, and I wish he'd get more props for it and get proper credit on things he played vs Felder.

    The two note slides he does in this are a great display of his knowledge of soul guitar. Those fills popularized by the likes of Bobby Womack, Cornell Dupree, Reggie Young, Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, etc went on to inspire Hendrix, and certainly Glenn being from Detroit, Michigan certainly knew a thing or 10 about RNB and soul music. You had Stax, American Sound, Muscle Shoals, and of course - Motown.

    TALA is my favorite Randy song by a long shot.

    I vote for "Take It To The Limit" for the win.

    This song was a stunner performed live. In concert, all Eagles hits were cheered for when the first recognizable chords were played and again when the song ended. Of course we all stood, danced and clapped along to TIE and other favorites, but the response to TITTL was other worldly. The applause built during the song and thundered for a long time afterwards. I think that we were not only applauding a hit song, but Randy's amazing performance. TITTL was never my favorite Eagles song, but it remains the best live performance I've ever seen.

    Sorry it was meant as a vote, but its all good. Posting with bronchitis is not a good idea.

    My My, you are sooo lucky you got to see that performance. There’s a YT clip of Melissa Etheridge covering the song and before she starts she talks about watching the band perform TITTL back in the day. She said the same thing about the crowd reaction.

    Yeah LGG - fortunately there was no impact on the final outcome of the round. And hope you feel better soon - I had bronchitis and it took me almost 2 months to completely get rid of it!

    And finally ...

    CONGRATS TO TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT FOR THE WIN!

    Although Try and Love Again was a worthy opponent, it was a tall order to beat the one of the band's biggest hits.
