I am roughly the same age as the Eagles members. I remember their name from the 1970s, and now that I know their songs I also remember hearing the songs. But before I watched this DVD I could not have put together the group with any of the songs. I suppose you can say I wasn't a big fan. I was more of a Chicago, Three Dog Night, and Blood/Sweat/Tears fan.But maybe 10 or 12 years ago my good friend Larry gave me this Eagles DVD. It was still fairly early in home theater surround sound and not every player or receiver could decode the DTS bit stream. But Larry and I could, and we relished in the fact that we were able to hear good, correct, discrete surround sound. That especially rings true in the bonus "Seven Bridges" track where a distinct voice comes out of each of the 5 speakers.But I am getting ahead a bit. A few days ago I came across the film "History of the Eagles", a 2012 documentary available on Netflix streaming. Watching that 3-hour film was required to really understand the Eagles and where they came from, starting in the late 1960s. They disbanded in 1980 when strong personalities made it impossible for them to stay together, but at the beginning of this 1994 film, Don Henley explains to the audience, "We never broke up, we just took a 14-year break." The sound on this DVD, in DTS surround, is fabulous. It is the next best thing to being at their concert. After enjoying it a number of times over the years, tonight I watched it with a fresh appreciation after seeing the 2012 documentary.Are you pukin' ??
