On July 1st-3rd, 1983, Randy returned to Nebraska for a series of hometown concerts at the Oregon Trail Lounge in Gering. It was the first time he had performed in the area since 1970, before his success with the Eagles.
Photographer: Henry Diltz
Location: Bernie Leadon’s home in Topanga Canyon. Another set of photos were taken at Bernie’s home by Ethan Russell in 1972
Photos from this session were used in a rare insert which were only found in original first issues of On The Border (1974).
Watching the photo shoot from the sidelines were Randy’s wife, Jennifer, and their three-year-old daughter, Heather. Jennifer took these photos of the shoot while it was happening, including a photo of Heather with the band in the background.
One wardrobe change happened during the session. Don Henley changed into the tan shirt Randy was wearing and Randy changed into a yellow chamois shirt. Glenn Frey switches from a denim shirt into a denim jacket. Bernie Leadon switches to a white shirt.
