History Of The Eagles Trailer


With five number one singles, fourteen Top 40 hits, and four number one albums, the Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of those albums -- Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) and Hotel California -- ranked among the ten best-selling albums ever, and the popularity of 2007's Long Road Out of Eden proved the Eagles' ...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Hole In One! July 20, 2003
The Eagles are now officially a quartet: Glen Frey, Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh. Their harmonizing on "Hole In The World" is reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. It is one of the best sounding songs the Eagles have ever done. The video is also very well produced, focusing on the group in the recording studio. I especially like how the video ends, as Joe Walsh gives a knowing wink to the camera and unplugs his electric guitar. My problem with this release is its repetitiveness. First there is the video of the song with a 5.1 mix, followed by the same video with a stereo mix, followed by outtakes from the video with an abbreviated version of the song. By the time I got to the second disc, which is the audio version of the song, I was thinking enough of the same song already! The backstage pass to the Farewell 1 Concert Tour contains footage of the Eagles on the road, making jokes and rehearsing. Personally, I would have preferred having a bonus live song instead.

This is only a CD-single and should be listed as such. This song is available as a bonus CD on the DVD-single release, which you can get for less. As for the band: Outstanding. The song: outstanding. The price: rip off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eagles Soar Higher Than Ever August 4, 2003
I'm wondering if there will be a VHS version of this video. I've heard 'Hole in the World' on the radio and I'm totally in love with it. It's the kind of song in this time in the world that everyone needs to hear to ease troubled times. The harmonies are so beautiful. It's soon to be another classic next to "Hotel California" or even better. The instrumentation is a sort of folk-gospel tone. A little different from their earlier works, but it still rocks! The lyrics are just soooo ahhhhhh! (lost for words), There's a hole in the world tonight/there's a cloud in the world of sorrow/don't let there be a cloud in the world tomorrow/ they say that anger is just love disappointed/...yeah, that catchy! Sadly, Don Felder will be missed. Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Tim Schmidt are still in top form. I've always loved their music. And this song has proved my loyalty to the best rock-n-roll band in the 20th and 21th century. Hopefully, it will be on CD sometime soon.

On the DVD for The Eagles Farewell Tour #1, Don Henley explains the 'conception' of the song "Hole In The World". He said that the band was supposed to go into the studio on Sept 11th to start work on a new album. Needless to say, they never went into the studio that day, or for some time after.

But that night, on Sept 11th, the song, Hole In The World was written. The lyrics are haunting. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up, and I cried, and played the song over and over.

I was at home on 9/11, and watched it all unfold on TV. I am a veteran of the US Air Force, and an Proud American. And every year on 9/11, I say a prayer for all the lives lost on that day, and pray for all their families. I also thank God that I live in America. And I thank God for all who survived 9/11, and for those who gave their lives to save others.

Their song, should also be an anthem for 9/11.

I applaude The Eagles, for their endearing lyrics, and songwriting expertise.

Just listen to the song, and you'll know why I cried.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hole Out Of This World July 27, 2003
For the music of The Eagles, it has been nothing but a huge following, even after their tragic departure in the early 80's. Still, they came back time and time again, not just as singers with solo careers, but also as a group with Hell Freezes Over in 1994. Still, it is kind of sad that they're set to perform their final concert tour together. They just made quite an impact on the music today. Their latest song, Hole In The World, is a very crafty soul driven Rock song. The melody is just absolutely catchy and uplifting, when and where other people take you down from being uplifting. It is just a great song, but also the first and maybe only song the group did as a quartet. Don Felder, a longtime member of the Eagles, departed in 2002. Still, the song is still as potent as ever. I just hope the group can arrange to do one final album for the fans soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Band Still Has It...... July 2, 2003
The Eagles are one of the premiere bands of the past, present and soon to be the future. This DVD/CD is living proof of that. The single here for their newest song, "Hole In The World," is a must-have. It's a rare occasion when a single can come this stacked. The single itself is a two-disc collection. The song "Hole In The World" is a beautiful piece of work and is pure Eagles with their great melodies and harmonic superiority. The first disc in the set is a DVD. The disc features two versions of the video. The video is the same, only difference is that it is presented in different audio formats. The video is also a nice piece of work as it features the band performing in the studio. Also on the disc is a making of the video that features the typical bloopers and such, and this is a nice treat. Lastly, there is a behind the scenes feature of the band on tour, and it provides a nice insight to a great band. The second disc is simply the audio version of the song, which could easily stand alone as well. This is an excellent collection and I highly recommend it. The Eagles are an amazing band, and this two-disc set helps in proving that they can still do what they do best......and that is perform.
