Product Description

Grammy Award winner Don Henley helped define the '70s as a member of the fabulously successful rock band The Eagles before launching an impressive solo career. On May 25, 2000, he returned to his Texas roots for a remarkable concert, recorded before an enthusiastic audience at Fair Park Music Hall in Dallas. This rock legend's live performance captures all the passion, satire and originality that fans around the world most treasure in his influential music. Songs: Dirty Laundry, Sunset Grill, Workin' It, Takin' You Home, The Boys of Summer, Lilah, Everything is Different Now, The End of the Innocence, All She Wants to Do is Dance, New York Minute, Talking to the Moon, They're Not Here They're Not Coming, The Heart of the Matter, Desperado, The Long Run, My Thanksgiving, Hotel California.

Don Henley and the Eagles may have sold a jillion albums, written some memorable songs, and established themselves as icons of the cocaine-colored '70s. But if there's one thing they weren't, it's a great live band--unless, of course, your idea of greatness includes rote, note-perfect re-creations of the recorded versions. And so it is with Henley the solo artist, at least if Live: Inside Job is any clue. Oh, it's not that this is a bad show. Au contraire. Henley's got a really good voice, a very good band, and a batch of good songs, including five from Inside Job (his first album of new material since the '80s), several solo hits, and the inevitable Eagle droppings. The guy is unquestionably a serious artist (that's serious as in "humorless"--Henley's stock in trade is sarcastic, cynical tunes like "Dirty Laundry," "New York Minute," and "They're Not Here, They're Not Coming," with their bitter ruminations on how tough it is to be a celebrity and the general decay and hollowness of contemporary culture). As such, he might reasonably claim that it's all about the music--hey, you want costume changes and firing flash pots, go see Cher or Kiss. An admirable stance, maybe, but it doesn't exactly make for a thrilling video experience. What you get is a filmed concert--nothing more, nothing less--with a couple of unexpected moments. Chief among the latter is the romping, Afro-Cuban arrangement of "Hotel California," and the presence of a 12-voice choir (led by Maxine Waters) that lends genuine majesty to "The Heart of the Matter." The choir is appropriate, because with Live: Inside Job, that's who Don Henley's preaching to. --Sam Graham --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars don henly the song writer March 14 2003
Format:DVD
I have been a long time Eagles fan and particular favored all the artists that have come through including henley, fry, schmidt, walsch, etc..... You cannot compare "hell freezes over" with "inside job" for a number of reasons.. First of all"Hell freezes over to me is the bench mark of reproduction of live concert that with all those boys together puts on a show like no other... to me Timmothy B has great singing ability, Walsch has his own unique blend of input into the show that he does not get credit for and truely has great abilities... Henley I feel has more passion in his singing surrounded by these guys however in Inside job if you truely want to appreciate the man, the song writer, the "passion" it is a great concert and dvd... great quality as a music experience and not a flashy show but great quality music.. My only dissapointment is the changing of Hotel California. He should have finished a more traditional version but who am I to judge. There are so many classics but as usual coming off this new album "Taking you home" will always be a favorite... "everything is different now" is a great version and a underated song along with "My thanksgiving" Desperado in his last verse makes a difference than the usual, and " There not here, they're not coming" is just a fun road song.... My last comments are as a person myself with a love of music, Henly truely is a great song writer..

3.0 out of 5 stars DTS? March 19 2001
Format:DVD
CON MUCHA EXPECTATIVA ESCUCHE EL DVD DE DON HENLEY, Y PARA MI SORPRESA, CUANDO LO VI, ENCONTRE A UN CANTANTE QUE PARECIA SALIDO DE LA FABRICA DE EMILIO ESTEFAN, TANTO POR SU LOOK, COMO POR LA FORMA Y SONIDO DE SU BANDA, EVIDENTEMENTE, NO TODOS LOS CAMBIOS SON PARA MEJOR, SOBRE TODO SI LO COMPARAMOS CON EL DVD DE EAGLES, DONDE DON, A PESAR DE SER UNO MAS DEL GRUPO QUEDABA MEJOR PARADO QUE EN ESTE DVD SOLISTA. ES EVIDENTE QUE NO ES FACIL REEMPLAZAR LOS COROS QUE LE HACIAN SUS VIEJOS COMPAÑEROS DE RUTA, Y DE LA BANDA, CREO QUE ES SOLO CORRECTA, MUY PROFESIONAL, PERO NO APORTA NADA NUEVO. SI UNO QUISIERA SABER DE QUE SE TRATA EL SONIDO DTS, ESTE NO ES UN BUEN EJEMPLO, YA QUE ES MUY INFERIOR AL DVD DE EAGLES, DONDE UNO PUEDE APRECIAR EL SONIDO DTS EN SU PLENITUD, ACA EN CAMBIO LO QUE MAS SE NOTA ES UNA MUY MARCADA TENDENCIA A LOS SONIDOS AGUDOS, SOBRE TODO EN LA VOZ DE DON, QUE LLEGAN A MOLESTAR. LA IMAGEN ES BUENA Y LAS CANCIONES ESTAN A LA ALTURA DE LA BUENA VOZ DE DON, PERO PERSONALMENTE REITERO QUE ESTE DVD ES MUY INFERIOR AL DE EAGLES.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert.... average DVD Nov. 21 2000
By Scott P
Format:DVD
You all know Henley so I'll spare the career retrospective. This DVD was taped May 25, 2000 at Fair Park Music Hall in Dallas. From the opener of Dirty Laundry through the entire set and closing with Hotel California, this is a great show by a fantastic song writer. Don's voice sounds great on this night and his back-up band is very sharp. Not a lot of talk between songs, but one great tune after another. The other songs include Sunset Grill, Workin' It, Taking You Home, The Boys of Summer, Lilah, Everything is Different Now, The End of the Innocence, All She Wants to Do is Dance, New York Minute, Talking to the Moon, They're Not Here (They're Not Coming), The Heart of the Matter, Desperado, The Long Run, and My Thanksgiving.
That covers the show, now on to the DVD features... well, there really aren't any. The sound quality is excellent and the production is flawless, but no multiple camera angles, no extras, no videos, just a short intro then on to the show. I'm not complaining as the show is fantastic, but if you like whistles and bells look elsewhere. If you love Henley, the Eagles or just great music then you'll still love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treat for Henley Fans Nov. 19 2000
Format:DVD
Don Henley is one of those artists people either love or hate: he strikes one as either wise and insightful or smug and arrogant. In "Live Inside Job," Henley reminds us that whatever the viewer's opinion of him, he's written an impressive list of songs that spans three decades. The concert (taken in part from A&E's "Live By Request" broadcast) leans heavily on songs from "Inside Job," although there is a good sampling from all of Henley's solo albums. Eagles fans who buy the DVD may be disappointed by the sparsity of Eagles songs, although Henley closes with a ska/reggae version of "Hotel California" that is worth the the price of the DVD alone. The DVD has a few drawbacks: at times, the sound mix is bad (Henley's vocals on "Taking You Home" are almost inaudible at first) and there are virtually no extras (a couple videos would have been a nice touch). Those are minor disadvantages, though, and the concert itself is an enjoyable reminder of how blue-eyed soulful a singer Henley still is. This is a nice addition to anyone's collection of music DVD's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Henley Sucks July 18 2001
Format:DVD
I thought I have another gold to be added to my dvd concert collection unitl I heard Henley's solo version of HOTEL CALIFORNIA, it was a disaster in the highest intensity, I & my friends nearly died laughing and me , I was so embarrassed because before we played it I keep telling them that somebody wrote in the review that the HC version is worth the dvd (what a fool I was to believe that). How in the world could he allow himself in ruining the national anthem of many of the EAGELS believers!!!I condemn him for doing this!!! Fortunately for Henley he included the EAGLES' In The Long Run, this save his ass!!!....and compare the guitarists that Henley hired to join him here with EAGLES' Don Felder & Joe Walsh, they are 3000 miles away from Hell Freezes Over! Anyhow this is still a good dvd, good song choices and good audio on both DTS and DD, I could have rated it with 5 star but Henley's version of HC took away 2 stars! So come on Don redeem yourself!!!!

Don Henley isn't, and never will be, a flamboyant artist and this DVD only serves to prove it. The man takes his music very seriously and expects to be taken seriously in return. Read more
