This review is from: History Of The Eagles [3 Disc DVD Deluxe Edition] [2013] (DVD)
In places it's a little glossy, jumping between recent interviews and archive footage. But it works. One of the best documentaries I've seen for a while.
The first part is definitely the more interesting of the two films. Seeing the early days and how,"easy" it seemed to come together was fascinating. I say easy, I'm pretty sure they worked hard, but it did seem like it all fall into place with out too much hassle. It also,shows how the band fell apart with no holds barred which is refreshing. They didn't give it a Hollywood ending.
The second film is then more recent history from the Hell Freezes Over TV special and subsequent tours. It's good, but the first one has the more interesting period covered with the classic albums. They touch on Don Felders sacking and he's still interviewed and involved in this film project which is how it should be. Sure he's not in the current Eagles line up, but he is an Eagle. They could've easily not involved him, but I think it's better for having him tell his side. I don't imagine he sees the others in person often as I think there is still a lot of hurt there.
The third disc is a 1977 live show. It's a good representation of the band at that moment in time. One of the last with Randy on bass. A lot of the concert footage is in the documentary as well.
There's also a small book within the box with some nice photos.

As a box set, it's one of the best presented I've owned.
