The Yardbirds

The Yardbirds - BBC Sessions (1965-1968)

Reviewed by Patrick Earley (Edmond, Oklahoma USA), from amazon.com

I love live radio broadcast albums. And this is one of the best of the BBC series releases. It's got some memorable performances by both the Beck and the Page lineups from 1965-68. This is pretty much Jeff Beck's show though. He appears on 20 of these cuts and he just cooks on here. Especially on "Too Much Monkey Business", where his guitar playing is just ferocious! This had to be pretty shocking stuff at the time for those stiff lipped studio technitions to hear. I love all the old blues covers they were generous enough to put on here. Especially Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man". There's nothing quite like hearing the spelling out of M-A-N with an english accent. Also another great cover is Chester Burnett's "The Sun Is Shining" where Beck plays a mean sounding bottleneck slide. But their best material is their originals such as "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul", Shapes Of Things, and my favorite "Over Under Sideways Down". It's hard to believe most of these songs were from the 65-66 era. They were so far ahead of their time. The only thing that gives it away is when those cheesy disc jockeys start introducing the band before each song with "Groovy" and "Here's a Real Knockout Band". But this album is just like a Best Of from the Yardbirds. It's got all their good stuff that's played pretty close to their studio versions, but with a little Beck and Page pizzaz. And being in the BBC studios, the recordings are crystal clear, with none of that annoying hiss. So if you haven't got any Yardbirds cd's yet, this is as good a place as any to start. Excellent
