This is an excellent audience recording of The Eagles in Osaka in 1976 and the show sounds as good as the performance does. I've been listening to it the past half hour and the taper did a really excellent job of capturing an excellent mix in the recording too.
Thanks goes out to "filippo" for sharing this gem over on Dime not too long ago. Every copy I had ever had of this recording (a) didn't sound as good as this 2nd Gen copy and (b) turned up testing lossy or was just shared as an mp3. It took me years to finally come across a true lossless copy of this show. But the wait was worth it too!

I think the taper must have been up close in the seating in Festival Hall to capture such a great recording of the show. The show looks great when viewing the waveform and there is absolutely no clipping of any audio. In fact, there is a lot of room left to work with the audio and bring out some changes moving it up to a superb copy if you know how to do it right. I'd love to see a Winston Remasters copy of this concert. Personally, I'm not making any changes and I'm leaving the unaltered show just as it sounds.
There is a little hiss, but it is very low and not an issue at all. The natural mix sounds great and all instruments and vocals are evenly heard. That alone is a big advantage to some copies I've heard (likely from higher generation sources and too much uneducated altering of the audio).
I don't know at the moment how many Japanese shows The Eagles played in 1976 on their Japan leg of their tour. But I do have a few and may have even uploaded one before from a different date? Over time, I will share those shows too.
I hope you enjoy this show..
