The Eagles - Earlybird (BBC Live) 1973

This is The Eagles live in 1973 from a recording that has been circulated as Earlybird.

There were two versions of the Earlybird bootleg both included the BBC Radio set (tracks one to nine) and were probably lifted from a BBC transcription disc as soundboard is credited for this part.

Version one also included a bonus track of "Hotel California" from 1977, and a bonus track of Don Henley on The Jay Leno Show.

Version two includes the bonus track of "Already Gone" from another TV performance and is included here, and was originally circulated by 'Music Nation' (number 005). This copy (which came as a digital file) also includes three more tracks from Santa Monica 1973.
