3.0 out of 5 stars Felder Rocks July 15 2013
A very distorted view of the Eagles because its basically Glenn Frey,s view of the Eagles and he is a very cold person. Frey and Henley treated Felder like a hired hand and took all the credit. Hotel California was Don Felders song, he wrote all the musical parts and Henley did the lyrics as only Henley can. Don Felder was an equal partner in the Eagles so he should not have been fired just for asking for equal money. Listen to Frey stating that it was only him and Henley that had solo careers therefor they should get more money. How greedy and pathetic because Don Henley had 10 times the solo career that Glen Frey had. So by that logic, Don Henley should have got more money than Glenn Frey. Don Henley and Glenn Frey were nicknamed the "GODS" by everyone associated with the band for good reason. They had a GOD complex!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good documentary and long June 22 2013
A suprisingley very well done documentary which seems like its intent on selling the new Eagles. It's divided into part 1, from the beginning of the band until their split in 1980, and then part 2, which focuses on the reunion in 1994 and to the present. I sort of stopped following closely the band after the mid 90s so I was a little surprised to learn of some of the new details, the law suits, their new records and also that Stewart Smith (I have always been a fan of his playing) replaced Don Felder.

The documentary focuses a lot on Glenn Frey, Don Henley and the Eagles as its own entity. Lots of screen time and details are poured over on Frey and Henley and their origins. There is actually a disproportionate amount of time devoted to Frey and Henley and the rest of the members and skimmed over. This reasoning is explained by Frey briefly in part two. Frey and Henley get paid more than the other members because they are the ones that created the Eagles and kept the name of the band alive after the breakup in 1980.

This might be true of Henley but I am not sure I agree about Frey. Frey had very brief success in the early to mid 80's and his career fizzled out mostly due to him releasing mediocre MOR material and unimpressive records compared to Henley. It also seems a little too skimpy on Joe Walsh and his career and contribution to the Eagles. Walsh had released more records than the Eagles did in their entire lifetime by the time he joined, both under his own name as well with The James Gang and Barnstorm. One of the great mysteries of rock and roll is why did Joe Walsh join the Eagles since he was at the height of his career at that point and was able to sellout concert halls and stadiums on his own. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Walsh_discography.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glenn Frey sucks Nov. 24 2013
By kyldesty TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Well I do love the Eagles, that's why I bought this. I have to say it was very disheartening to see how Frey and Henley treated Felder and the other guys. There is absolutely no denying their talent but how could such crooked greedy a-holes make such great feel good music. The documentary is very compelling despite how Frey's arrogance and greed gnawed at me. It is very informative and provides a lot of insight. I would've given it five stars but Frey's attitude made it a bitter sweet viewing. It will always be in the back of my mind that the guys singing these songs are bad people now. That sucks.

As much as I am a fan of the Eagles. And seeing them in Edmonton this past Monday was great. I am SEVERELY disappointed in the fact that we as consumers were promised 4 additional hours of unseen footage. Well if there was ever a case of false advertisement, this package surely fits the description to a "T". The footage is the exact same footage that aired on Showtime. There is no additional footage anywhere in this set. No wonder people download. If you as a consumer are misled into buying a product based on false information being given to you. What choice do you have?

Again, as much as I like the Eagles.......BUYER BE AWARE!!!

I Love the Eagles Music. I sincerely respect and appreciate all past and current band members. Top notch story of the Eagles history. "Part One" (Disc One - 2 hours) tells the story of the bands formation in 1971 to the breakup in 1981. "Part Two" (Disc Two - 1 hour 8 minutes) tells the story from the bands reunion in 1994 up to 2013. The 40 page book is filled with photos of all band members from various times in their history. "Eagles Live at the Captial Centre March 1977" (Disc Three - 46 minutes) is 8 songs from the concert; 1. Hotel California, 2. New Kid In Town, 3. Take It To The Limit, 4. One Of These Nights, 5. Lyin' Eyes, 6. Rocky Mountain Way, 7. Best Of My Love, 8. Take It Easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Doc! May 1 2013
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This actually gets a 4 and 1/2 stars but I will get to that later. This is an excellent doc.. My biggest fear was a watered down version of their career. Not here. This is one of the most honest documentaries I have ever see and i've seen a lot.
They are brutally honest about why they kicked Don Feilder out. You feel really bad for him. They do mention how the last LP was walmart only in the U.S.. I have to be honest I really wanted to hear Mr. "Sunset grill" Henely try to justify that but no luck. Otherwise it's a warts and all doc..My only complaint is I really would have liked about an hour more of there history from 70 to .80 and and a half hour less of the early 90's until now.
They talk to everyone past and present. They also talk to important Eagle relationships. Like Jackson Brown, JD SOuthern and Bob Seger. Plus managers and so on.
I concider myself a big fan but even knowing their history this was still a great watch!
The bonus Blu ray with a 45 minute live film from the Hotel California tour is worth buying this alone. Why we only got half the show I don't know but its still great. In 7.1, restored colour it looks perfect. Hopefully they will get around to releasing some of these shows from their archives.
I can not stress enough how happy I am with this package. The only reason I took off half a star was because we didn't get the full '77 concert. But this still is a phenomenal set!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!
A great set if your interested in the history of the band. If you want a DVD of their music, you would be better off with a DVD of one of their concerts. Very enjoyable!!
