Directed by Alison Ellwood (Magic Trip: Ken Kesey’s Search for a Kool Place), History of the Eagles is a meticulous creation featuring rare archival material, concert footage, and never-before-seen home movies that explore the evolution and enduring popularity of one of the world’s biggest-selling and culturally significant American bands.

History of The Eagles Parts 1 & 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The History of the Eagles is presented on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in a variety of aspect ratios as befits the many source elements. The bulk of the documentary is in 1.78:1 and 1:33. The accompanying concert disc is 1080i in 1.33:1. (Screenshots 1-17 come from both parts of the documentary, while screenshots 18 and 19 come from the concert disc.) Given the hugely disparate amount of material this documentary incorporates, things look pretty good overall. The contemporary talking head sequences of course look the best, with a nicely sharp image, accurate color and pleasing fine object detail. Even some of the archival footage has weathered the vagaries of time and its smaller millimeter sourcing rather well. On the other hand, there's some really ragged looking footage here, including old television appearances that look like they were sourced off of second or even third generation tapes. The bonus concert footage is relatively decent looking, though suffers from the red stage lighting, something that makes the midrange and wide shots look extremely soft and fuzzy. Close-ups fare considerably better. Given the historical significance of so much of this footage (much of which has never been seen before), it's hard to get too worked up over a less than totally pristine high definition presentation here. Anyone with appropriate expectations should be easily pleased with the overall video quality of this release.


History of The Eagles Parts 1 & 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The History of the Eagles (as well as the concert disc) feature both a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track as well as an LPCM 2.0 track. While it's obvious that some of this material had multitrack source stems to build a proper 5.1 mix out of, it's just as obvious that some did not, and at least some of the repurposed material has a kind of oddly processed quasi-phasing sound that I personally found a little distracting. I opted for the 2.0 track for that reason, but others' mileage may vary and those people may well find the 5.1 track perfectly acceptable. Fidelity is just fine in all of the interview and voiceover material, and is mostly excellent in the archival footage. The professionally filmed concert material sounds the best (including on the bonus disc), but some of the older appearances have some transitory issues. As with the video quality, the historical importance of these older pieces is such that any minor problems are easily ignored.
