I color corrected it (there was a lot of glaring red and blue haze in it - about 95% of that is gone), fixed the audio so that it comes out both channels (in mono). I also boosted the volume - it was way too low.

To color correct this required that I reduce the saturation and darken it a bit. Regarding the darkening - the images will appear to be slightly darker than the original. This mostly affects the background images - and not those in the foreground. So a speaker cabinet that was visible in the original version will probably not be (as) visible in this one. The musicians, for the most part, are unchanged in this regard.

And I added motion menus (main menu and song selection menu). And I put in some vintage Eagles '70s-era still images in between songs where the screen went to black. I also (neatly) cut out a few minutes of deadtime while the band was offstage between encores.

Regarding the date - the setlist strongly suggests this was not a 1977 show because of a lack of songs like "New Kid In Town" which reached #1 in the charts in 1977. During the show, J.D. Souther mentions that it's Glenn Frey's birthday (November 6) - which means they would have performed a full show in late 1977 without playing their number one hit of the year - which just doesn't make sense.
