On this day, July 29, 1975, Randy Meisner was ready to play at the Mississippi River Festival in Edwardsville, Illinois. The 4 original members of "Eagles" did not disappoint the 2nd largest crowd ever at the Festival in 1975 (Timothy B. Schmit & Joe Walsh join later). They opened the show with "Take It Easy". Fearful of ticket overpricing, the band had in their contract that the festival could NOT charge over $6.50 per ticket. Tickets were $3, $4 and $5. The paid attendance is 29,491.
