Also, there is a segment on the band's induction into the hall of fame, and then a final interview (which is very good in video quality) of the entire band during their first reuinion tour (around 1994).
So the overall content (subject matter) is good. However, and this is a big "however, the video quality leaves much to be desired. Especially the first interview with Glenn Frey and Bob Costas (even the sound quality is not great on this interview). Because the quality is not all that great, and the sound on the first Glenn Frey interview is poor as well, the price of the DVD should not be so high. $12.99 or lower would have been a much better price for this DVD (strickly due to quality).
However, if you are a huge Eagles fan then you will want to get this DVD (if you are willing to pay the sticker price), for the content alone it is worth getting.
[Update on 4/13/2009 - I have noticed that since I originally wrote this review, the price of the DVD has dropped to $9.99. That's good to see, and the DVD is worth that price.]
It was an interesting group of recordings and clips, just not as diverse as we were looking for.
