Agree 100% on this.  The first lineup was given a bit of time, mostly via interviews with McDonald and Michael Giles.  I think I only heard Greg Lake's name invoked twice during the whole film, one of which was Jakko discussing Lake as an influence on his vocal stylings.  Barely a mention at all of the Boz era and, shockingly, virtually no insight into the Larks/Red era other than a couple brief interviews with Bruford and Muir.  

Dear old Uncle Bobby is all about the current lineup of the band and wants that put forth as much as possible, which is lovely and warranted...but I would have preferred more balance to the film overall in terms of the various eras of this legendary band that were glossed over.
