The concert was filmed and Randy’s performances of “Take It To The Limit” and “Midnight Flyer” can be watched below. Note that Randy and Joe are both wearing white t-shirts with the logo for Criteria Studios in Miami where the band was finishing up Hotel California at the time. In fact, the previous night’s show in Baton Rouge was held up for two hours because the band was late arriving from Miami.

Randy recalled in 2006, the grueling touring and recording schedule from this period:

We had to go out on the road while we were doing that album and then go back to Criteria Studios in Florida to finish itWe went back and forth a lot…wanted to get the tracks right and mixed right. We knew the album was special.” (“Randy Meisner Takes It To The Limit One More Time,” Ken Sharp, Discoveries magazine, September 2006)
