Retrieving cvs log changes between two revisions

Hi all,
I am trying to retrieve cvs log changes between two revision tags. For instance if I have a directory with two .java files and each has a tag called RELEASE_1_0 and RELEASE_2_0, I would like to produce a document that contains the cvs log changes that took place after RELEASE_1_0 and before RELEASE_2_0 for both of these files. I believe this is simply finding the right CVS log command options, but I have not yet found exactly what I want.
Thanks in advance,
-MLA

Sorry for the blank post..
The cvs command is :
cvs diff -r tagname1 -r tagname2
Hope this helps.

I believe that actually retrieves all differences. I only want the commit descriptions from the cvs log.
Thanks,
