    "Frey" and "Leadon" were consistently mispronounced, the information about the band was superficial and occasionally inaccurate and I didn't know who any of them were except for Barney Hoskyns. Considering it was supposed to be about a "greatest album", most of them seemed quite unenthusiastic.

    I still watched it all the way through, so thanks for the heads up.
    This sounds like the one I bought at Walmart a few years ago. I wasn't impressed!

    I'm sure there's a DVD of a similar topic with similar reviews on Amazon...

    Yeah GL, I agree. I got the same one that you did off Amazon and it does sound like the same one. Not that great, for sure!

    I've also seen this. I seriously think they got their clips and info off the internet. Not even kidding.

    Has anyone else seen this documentary? It's available on Amazon Prime (free to members). Personally, I am afraid I have to agree with the 7 reviewers and the overall 1/5 star rating. Not. Good. Waste. Of. Time. Money.

    Is this another one of those lame British ones? I think so many come out of Britain because they have different copyright laws and the Eagles can't sue them!

    Thanks for the link, Dawn. I watched the trailer and I don't think I've seen this one, but it's hard to tell. I may be mistaken, but the long-haired blonde narrator looks like he may be the same amateur that was in the 'Desperado' doc that was discussed earlier in this thread - the one that pronounced Frey as 'Fray'. In any event, it sounds like the quality is comparable and definitely not worth the time or money to watch, AFAIC.

    Those reviews are brutal! Looks like we Borderers could do a better job simply by narrating clips culled from my bootleg collection! That brown frame they use to disguise the low quality of their clips is a very amateurish add-on, straight out of a cheap video-editing software program that even I could apply.

    I am serious - this is a complete amateur job that anyone with a digital camera, bootlegs, and video editing software could put together. Too bad they were lacking the rudimentary knowledge of the Eagles that would have allowed them to pronounce Glenn's name correctly.

    I just clicked on to the site - it got one star ! I think that says a lot about the "documentary".
