I think I have most, if not all, of the 1976 The Eagles Japan shows recorded. I haven't done a full investigation to confirm this but from what I've seen available, and from upgrading from the mp3 copies I only had a number of years ago, I'm pretty sure I have them and most sound really good. But this one is one of the best sounding from this time and tour in Japan.

The audio is a little bass heavy at times but it is still excellent. I personally don't mind heavy, non distorted audio myself. It sounds really great on a good system with good speakers too. The thump, thump, thump can be felt by the body.
I just put this show in on the home theater system to recall anything to put in a review. It's probably been a year since I've listened to it. But from the start, the guitars and vocals as well as drums are all very evenly mixed and it does sound like a soundboard recording. But between songs you can hear screaming Japanese girls (a few are really excited) and other audience noises that let you know it is just an excellent audience recording.
The boot label, Dynamite Studio, didn't track disc 1 according to their artwork. So it looks like there is one less track than there is on the disc. Since this was an EAC rip and I included the supplied log files I can see the rip was this way straight from the disc and not later split into two tracks. Normally, most people track song three, "Doolin' Dalton" and "Desperado (Reprise)" as one track. But in this case the label broke up the songs into track three being "Doolin' Dalton" and track four being "Desperado )Reprise)" so the artwork isn't an exact match and doesn't even mention "Desperado (Reprise)" on it.. No big deal to me but I thought I'd mention if for you.
There is some slight tape hiss but nothing bad as well as a few small digital glitches in the recording. I'm not going to make it through the show to report every detail before I upload it and you'll have to download it and listen if you're interested.
The Eagles are really on fire in this show and sound like they put on a stellar performance. I'm listening to "Outlaw Man" right now and they are flying along at full speed tearing the stage up. I can see why this has been mistaken as a soundboard in the past too.
Thanks goes to "lolita" for sharing this upgraded copy of the show on Dime last year (2014). The previous lossless copy I had was still excellent but it was a few generations higher than this copy for sure. It'd be nice to hear a digital copy of the master recording from this show.
I hope you enjoy the show...
