Although Eagles Live includes four tracks recorded in the fall of 1976, the bulk of the album comes from the end of the Eagles' 1980 tour, and it reflects their late concert repertoire, largely drawn from Hotel California and The Long Run. The occasional early song such as "Desperado" and "Take It Easy" turn up, as do selections from Joe Walsh's solo career, "Life's Been Good" and "All Night Long." Walsh introduces some live variations to his material; the rest of the Eagles seem determined to re-create the studio versions of their songs in concert. The previously unrecorded rendition of Steve Young's "Seven Bridges Road" is welcome, and the album would have benefited from more such surprises.

Over the years, The Eagles have gotten a lot of flack for their seemingly stale live performances; however, true fans of musicality will enjoy the work of this stellar band to recreate their studio sound in a live stadium show. Recorded primarily at the end of their career, the band seems disenchanted, and yet still provides product that is musically superior. In time and in tune, and without any of the bells and whistles required of players of lesser talent to spruce up technically inferior musical performances, Eagles Live is an important part of any fan's collection.
