Thread: Hotel California documentary BBC4 tomorrow

  1. #1

    Default Hotel California documentary BBC4 tomorrow

    Tomorrow night at 9pm there is a two hour documentary based on the Barney Hoskyns book, 'Hotel California', about the west coast music scene in the 60s and 70s. I will try and record it on dvd, but if anyone else in the UK is reading this, perhaps they could record it as well as a backup.

    Oh GEF - thank you, thank you. That would be great if you can do that. It should be very interesting!

    I've been reading that book. It's very enlightening about that whole 70s scene! Anyone else read it?

    And I'd love to see the dvd, too, if anyone gets it.

    I read the Eagles parts of the book - it was interesting, but nothing in there surprised me! And thanks for the effort, GEF.

    Ok, with the help of other half I have the documentary on dvd, hurray! It devoted more time to the Eagles than in the book, and had interviews with Bernie and JD, among others. There were some Henry Diltz stills, and a few bits of the BBC concert, plus that very rare video of the band singing Witchy Woman at an art preview. I think you'll enjoy it. Could I send a copy to one of you to copy and pass on?

    Oh - that is wonderful GEF. I would volunteer, but I don't have the software to burn DVDs. I'm sure some of our other board members can help us out though. It sounds like the Witchy Woman segment may be the same one that is on the "Under the Covers' DVD. Hopefully, there won't be any regional problem with the DVD.

    BTW - I only posted this so you don't have to keep scrolling to see my AV. I feel so popular all of a sudden - everyone wants me to post a lot lately. I just don't understand why!

    You're so thoughtful, thanks Dreamer.
    I'm sorry I don't have a DVD burner either.

    I can copy it if you send it to me, GEF. Let me know if you still have my address, or if you need me to send it again. Thank you so much!

    Thanks, Nancy. Z has kindly offered as well, so a copy is now on its way.
