I ordered the BluRay The third disc with the concert sold me. I LOVE watching concerts on BD and DVD, and since I wanted to see this documentary anyway, it was worth it. Amazon Prime, should have it Saturday according to Amazon

Tim doesn't get those. It's pretty well-documented that Tim was scrapping to get by, doing session gigs and such. The reunion was a much bigger deal to him, financially, than to ANY of the others, and 1/7th of a LOT of money is way better than 1/5th of no money.

I'm not surprised at all that they took the deal. It was a crappy deal, but Frey and Henley are not boy scouts, and they hold all the cards. Without them, no one buys a ticket. So they get to make the rules.

I'd be glad that they only kept 4/7ths, if I were the other band members.

I got the BD this weekend but haven't had a chance to watch the documentary yet. I did put the 1977 concert on. Picture quality is what you'd expect from a 1977 film but the sound was done REALLY well. You get the option to play in 5.1 or Stereo. In 5.1 you actually get DTS Master Audio. My big complaint is it's obviously not the whole concert. Only about 10 songs and about 45 minutes in length (if I recall). Looking forward to finding time to watch the whole documentary.

Watched this over the weekend. Most excellent. But there story could be pretty much any band's story of that era.

Driving forces of the band meet
They bring on others they know
Record company signs them to a terrible contract
Hit song(s) and album
Record company/agent tries to screw them
Original producer "can't work with them anymore" as they become more astute musically
New agent fixes things
New producer has vision
Insanely popular album comes out, which begins the downward spiral of the band
Drugs / parties / women begin to take their toll on the band
Creative and monetary differences split the band up leading to a HUGE blowout
Band breaks up

How many bands of the 70s have THAT story?

Still I am a sucker for these types of stories and love the stories behind the songs.

This x10.

I got chills within about two syllables of "Seven Bridges Road" the first time I watched it, and then got them again when I watched with my wife two nights later.

I loved the documentary, but when my wife asked if I wanted to get tickets to their concert in SJ there was no way I'd give any more of my hard earned money to Frey or Henley.

True. But the story isn't really unusual. Still, I enjoyed this, as I always like these types of things.

This. They come to town often but I cannot see paying $100+ for nose bleed seats to fund Frey and Henley who are effing rich as hell as it is.

It doesn't bother me giving them money. I don't think they are any worse than most band leaders. But $100 a ticket is ridiculous and I'm not paying that for any group. The concerts I have seen over the last few years have been at our local amphitheater and they are mostly "B" list acts that I have enjoyed over the years, and all priced in the $20-$40 a ticket. I can afford to take my whole family for the price of one Eagles ticket.

That's why I buy concerts on DVD/BD. I can still enjoy the music without the high price.
