    Not much to choose from!

    The only ones I can think of are:
    Holland 1973
    London (BBC) 1973
    DKRC 1974 (featuring Linda Ronstdat and Jackson Browne)
    Seattle 1975 (bootleg)
    Houston 1976 (bootleg)
    Washington 1977 (only eight songs exist)

    Film and performance quality-wise Washington is best but I'm very fond of the DKRC performance, the setlist is excellent and it's probably the best you'll find of pre-Walsh Eagles.

    The list tlr gave is a pretty good summary of the various concerts you can see live, I think I can add to this by giving a list of what I consider to be some of the best performances:

    Holland 1973 - Has an excellent, largely acoustic of Take It Easy. Also has the original version of How Long (the arrangement is very similar to that on LROOE, but with Randy singing the third verse rather than Glenn).
    London (BBC) 1973 - Fantastic Witchy Woman, the riff cuts right through, also has an extended version of Earlybird.
    DKRC 1974 - Contains IMO the absolute best version of Already Gone. Also excellent for Peaceful Easy Feeling, but the highlight has to be the superb combined rendition of Doolin-Dalton and the D-D/Desperado Reprise, which the guys (maybe not Felder, but certainly the other four) give everything on.
    Seattle 1976 - Absolutely storming version of Outlaw Man with Glenn singing on piano and some great new electric guitar parts by Walsh and especially Felder.
    Houston 1976 - Has a terrific Take It To The Limit, and a Witchy Woman with an extended intro.
    Washington 1977 - Can't go wrong with anything here, eight great performances of eight great songs. Only shame is that the song isn't complete.

    I haven't seen any performances from The Long Run era, in a way it's quite fortunate that most of the songs from Eagles Live were taken from that tour because few (if any) videos seem to have surfaced, though there are bootlegs, including I believe one of the infamous 31 July 1980 Long Beach show.

    California Jam with Jackson Browne sitting in for Don Felder is pretty good, if a little short, too.

    I think the California Jam show (although only 4 or 5 songs long) has great versions of "Take It Easy" and "Already Gone" Both are smokin' and Glenn handles the lead on the latter while singing and I don't think Felder is missed all that much. Also, the harmonies on both are stellar!
