Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Thirty songs, spread out over two discs and well over two and a half hours, with fine performances, great sound, and good visual direction: it's all here on Farewell 1 Tour, a documentary of the Eagles' 2004 concert in Melbourne, Australia. At one point, the veteran band seemed unlikely to even make it to the new millennium, but here they are, mostly intact, with a string of hits dating back more than three decades. The majority of them are performed here, from the earliest ("Take It Easy," "Desperado," "Peaceful Easy Feeling") through "Hotel California" and "Life in the Fast Lane" and right up to "Love Will Keep Us Alive" (from Hell Freezes Over, their most recent recording with new material on it); there are also hits from Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Joe Walsh's solo careers, and a few new songs as well, including Walsh's "One Day at a Time" (an earnest ode to his new-found sobriety) and "Hole in the World," Frey and Henley's moving, almost gospel-tinged reaction to the events of 9/11/01. Guitarist Don Felder, who split acrimoniously with the band in 2001, isn't much missed, as replacement Steuart Smith plays the parts just as Felder did--i.e., pretty much exactly as they were recorded (indeed, pristine recreations of the studio versions of their songs has always been a hallmark of the Eagles' live shows). As for the somewhat cheeky title, well, there's always been a certain smugness to the Eagles' sense of humor, and it's no different this time, as Frey doesn't even pretend that there won't be a Farewell 2 Tour in the future. And why not? These are good songs, played beautifully by the quartet (plus supplemental musicians) to audiences that love them. Bonus material is limited to perfunctory interviews with the band. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Without doubt, the Eagles are one of the all-time biggest acts in popular music since the dawn of the rock'n'roll era. The band's roots go back to their role as defining artists in the phenomenally popular Southern California rock scene of the '70s, a decade in which they delivered four consecutive #1 albums. Their momentous 2004 farewell tour filled stadiums around the world, and this 2-DVD set captures one of the most stellar events from that now-historic global sweep. Track Listings: Disc 1: Long Run, New Kid in Town, Wasted Time, Peaceful Easy Feeling, I Can't Tell You Why, One of These Nights, One Day At A Time (New Track), Lyin' Eyes, Boys of Summer, In The City, Already Gone, Tequila Sunrise, Love Will Keep Us Alive, No More Cloudy Days (New Track), Hole In the World, Take It To the Limit, Disc 2: You Belong to the City, Walk Away, Sunset Grill, Life's Been Good, Dirty Laundry, Funk #49, Heartache Tonight, Life in the Fast Lane, Hotel California, Rocky Mountain Way, All She Wants To Do Is Dance, Take It Easy, Desperado

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Eagle's Concert I've Seen June 2, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just watched the concert on NBC using my High Definition TV broadcast, and 5.1 surround sound audio. It was absolutely terrific.

Every member of the group sounded great. Don Henley looked a bit heavy, and older, but sounded just fine.

If your favorite Eagle is Joe Walsh, this is the concert for you.
He sang more on this concert, and was great as always.

This concert contained almost every one of their hits, and left out a lot of their lesser known materials. Don Henley mentioned in some of his commentary that they don't mind at all doing their hits, even though they've performed them hundreds of times, and in fact thinks they've improved the songs and their performances over the years. I agree. In my opinion, this is a better concert than Hell Freezes Over, and that was very good.

How many bands can you name that have a country sound and are as popular with rockers as well as country, and have been around over 30 years?
Update: Finally on blu ray. I thought it would be impossible to improve, but here it is. The blu ray version sounds and looks even better. I've watched this concert many times. I never get tired of it!

Just great!!! By the way, the video and sound quality are top notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Bands around period. May 18, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was fortunate enough to see this concert when they came to Philadelphia and I can easly say it was one of the all time best concerts i had ever been to - easily in my top 5. The songs and the performances were outstanding--should you expect anything less from such a legendary group of musicians....Hearing them perform these classics live brought chills to ones spine and the occaisonal tear to the eye....a rarety in concerts these days. I am so greatful that they decided to record one of these magical nights for all to see and the set list is impressive...If you are lucky enough to have them heading to your area in the next few months you have to see them-do NOT miss this oppertunity....this is one concert you will get your moneys worth and then some....But for those who cant make it and for the ones who have expreienced the Eagles Live this is going to be great to relieve those memories and classic songs all over again. If you are a music lover this is a MUST HAVE for your collection. Be prepared to be blown away by one of the best bands EVER. The Eagles. 'nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars elders still flying high August 13, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You'd never know from my music collection that I like The Eagles, singularly or as a whole;nary a cd to be seen, except for one old Joe Walsh entry. This DVD caught my eye as it was used to advertise a big-screen TV at my local video rental place, and on a whim I rented it. It brightened up my weekend considerably.

It's comforting to see so many of the veteran performers still operating at such an energetic level, especially after self-proclaimed headlong charges toward oblivion. This is addressed eloquently by Joe Walsh ("I was drunk once - for twenty years")in a new song called "One Day At A Time" - an exhilerating and typically Joe Walsh song that caught my attention from the very first note. Joe has always been my favourite Eagle anyway; he seems to have the best approach to life, and certainly he would have to be in the running for Funniest Rock Musician. He'd definitely have my vote.

This two-disc set covers The Eagles from the start, and incorporates all the individual high points. As already stated, the energy level is way up there; it was recorded in Melbourne, Australia, with an audience ranging from little kids to oldsters like me, and not only is it a packed house, everybody is singing and dancing. No dozers here. And on stage, you'd never know these guys are cruising toward that nasty word "old" (Joe Walsh will be 59 in November; Don Henley is already there, and Glenn Frey will be 58, also in November); they never were a group to gyrate and race around on stage, but here they get together on some of the songs and hop in time to the music, clearly enjoying each other's music and style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get this DVD and than go visit Poco listings June 2, 2005
Format:DVD
The concert was as good as I expected it. All four of the members held up really well. I enjoyed the new Glenn Frey song a lot. There is something about his voice combined with Henley's and Timothy B.'s that elevates solo-Eagle songs to a different level. On the NBC special Henley made the point that all solos songs could have easily been Eagles songs anyway and he is right.

If you like this DVD, go to the music section and look up the listings for Poco. Last year Poco released a CD/DVD package that is only 13.99 on Amazon. The title you need to find is "Keeping the Legend Alive". You get a great concert DVD as well as a CD for the car. Many of you who like the Eagles will love this combo and you will also be surprised at the number of songs you actually know. Back in the late sixties and early seventies, when Glenn Frey was fresh off the stagecoach from Detroit, he used to sit at the foot of the stage at the Troubadour in LA and watch Poco perform. Richie Furay, Rusty Young and the others created the template for much of what the Eagles were able to do. Poco didn't rise to the heights that the Eagles did, but they provided a lot of inspiration and are a crucial step in the evolution of country and rock. Both of the bass players in the Eagles actually came from Poco.

Since both groups share killer harmonies and great songs, why did the Eagles go on to become such giants and Poco didn't? Poco lacked Frey's sense of Detroit R&B. That was the key ingredient (IMHO). Well, that and a very, very aggressive management team.

Walmart Exclusive???
There are three songs on a seperate CD available only at WalMart: No More Cloudy Days (possibly a studio version of the live track), and two never before released songs. They'll probably show up on the new Eagles album scheduled for release on 2007.
