Synopsis

Product Description
Though short-lived, The Yardbirds legend and influence loom large, and
rightfully so- the band was the starting point for three ultimate British guitar
heroes: Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page. Clapton departed the
group first (to join John Mayall' s Bluesbreakers), while Beck later went on to
form the Jeff Beck Group and Page would regroup with The New
Yardbirds an outfit soon renamed Led
Zeppelin. As The Yardbirds, though, they
delivered a series of groundbreaking LPs and
scorching blues-rock singles that are classic
cornerstones of rock n roll. This powerful
compilation features eighteen of their most
important early tracks, including the hits
For Your Love, Heart Full Of Soul,
The Train Kept A-Rollin , I' m A Man, and
other guitar-intense tours de force.

Yardbirds 1964-1966

"If you like Yardbirds you will like this. There are better yardbirds
CD's, but this ain't bad."

"OK, a lot of amazing musicians spent time in this outfit, but is that enough to qualify the Yardbirds as great? Not for me. Some of the songs are OK, mostly the one's we've all heard; otherwise, this is the Monkees messin' with the blues. Hardly essential. I borrowed this and didn't bother downloading it. Wanted to know what they were about, but not something I will revisit. I finally get why all the great guitarists just passed through the band: they wanted more than becoming the next Herman's Hermits."
