3.0 out of 5 stars Picture Quality
The picture quality wasn't as good as the Eagles dvd concert in Australia. It was very grainy and not as sharp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Video,

5.0 out of 5 stars Eagles still hot after a "fourteen year vacation.",
This review is from: The Eagles - Hell Freezes Over: Live 1994 (DVD)Eagles: Hell Freezes Over is the reunion concert that wasn't a reunion. As frontman Glenn Frey explains, "For the record, we never broke up; we just took a fourteen year vacation."
Maturity has allowed the group to re-form, and to work together to revive one of the most innovative and best sounds of the 1970s. The playing is crisp, the solos intelligent, and overall the music is not only as good as ever, but even better.
I must say that the audience disappointed me. The concert opens with a classical-style guitar lead-in to Hotel California, which the audience fails to recognize! It isn't until the traditional lead-in riff starts that the audience recognizes the song and cheers.
However, as the concert continues the audience is responsive and appreciative.
This is classic Eagles which, like a fine single malt Scotch, has only improved with age.
5.0 out of 5 stars Set the standard for music DVDs..,
Drawbacks: If you've been to an Eagles concert, the dynamic is very different and the shows are far more energetic. The amount of material they do during the shows (post 1994) covers the solo and band era, which covered a lot of territory, and came to about 3 hours. I'm sure that as with Fleetwood Mac, there will be a DVD of the "Farewell I" tour. But the Hell Freezes Over video is about 100 minutes.
Hopefully, they can put out a vintage era video collection that has some of the early 70s BBC and Don Kirshner footage as well as the more familiar footage from "Hotel California" and "The Long Run" promos they've shown on TV in the past.
5.0 out of 5 stars #1 of the 5 must-have concert DVDs, perhaps the best ever,
Better than the original songs on CD, because the direction and the flawless quality of the recording. This is widely considered by those who've seen it to be the standard that all concert films should shoot for. I'm one of those who feel that way.
If you really hate the Eagles, you might not like this DVD. Whenever we have people over for a party, everyone asks for this to go into the player. A must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music DVD standard,
3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of missing songs,
This review is from: Eagles,the Hell Freezes Over (DVD)The best song on this DVD is Joe Walsh`s "Help me through the night"...other wise this show is a bomb... I love the Eagles but they left so much off this DVD, I wanted to hear "best of my love"...nope, wanted to hear 'New kid in town", nope.... jesus, what songs did they do??? Don Henley solo matreial, what??????????????????????????????????? this is THE EAGLES!!!!! not the Don Henley solo show..... Tequila Sunrise was great, Hotel California was great.... etc...... "Take it easy" was great, I think this DVD was a compromise for Don Henley, if he was going to play with these guys he wanted to plug his tunes.....otherwise he wouldnt have done it, theres history here folks.....Don Henley and Glenn Frey do not get along ..god knows why, can anybody answer that???? what happened between these guys????
They wrote some great songs, what could have driven these 2 guys so far apart??? was it egos???? god, hope not.... anyways, good DVD but so mcuh left off........, oh well, "Get over it boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"like songs says.......
5.0 out of 5 stars Technically great with good music,
This review is from: Eagles,the Hell Freezes Over (DVD)I love this DVD. Technically, as far as the sound is concerned, it is superb. With a good set of headphones, you feel as though you are sitting next to the band. You can hear every vibration of the guitar strings. The video is very good, but I would have enjoyed some more closeups of the fingers and instruments.
The music is excellent. It is a good representative selection of the Eagles best tracks - both the well-known ones and the not-so-well-known ones - with a combination of old and new, solo and group.
As an historical "document", it is great to see the group back together and see how they have changed, or not, over the 14 years since they spilt up. They obviously enjoyed putting the DVD together most of the time. If you concentrate on the music, you can ignore the behind-the-scenes tensions that apparently were there.
And I think that the music is great!! I think that all Eagles fans should get this DVD to complete the history of the group, one of the greatest of the genre.
5.0 out of 5 stars Audio work is a 6, Video is a 4, ... 5 stars,
This will make a higher end DTS capable system really perform the way it is supposed to.
