Rezension

Werkschau auf Rhino. Tatsächlich gab es im Land der unbeschränkten Möglichkeiten noch keine labelübergreifende Compilation einer der wichtigsten britischen Bands dieser Zeit. Das hat man nun geändert.53 Songs aus ihrer Zeit von `63-`68, darunter einiges rares, mit einem tollen Booklet, remastertem Sound und den Gitarrenkünsten von Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page und Jeff Beck. Kommt im Schuber mit Booklet und zwei Digipaks.
Wie sagt Cub Koda noch in den Linernotes: "The Yardbirds were the forerunners of heavy metal, psychedelic music, the extended guitar solo, and that staple of rock improvisation, the þjam.þ"

Review

The Yardbirds were arguably the most influential British blues-rock band of the mid-þ60s. They became the only band in history to lay claim to three of the greatest guitar players in rock: Eric Clapton (October þ63-March þ65), Jeff Beck (March þ65-November þ66), and Jimmy Page (June þ66-July þ68). Inspired by nasty Chicago blues and R&B, The Yardbirds were hatched in June 1963 by Keith Relf (vocals, harp), Anthony "Top" Topham (lead guitar) and Chris Dreja (rhythm guitar), Paul Samwell-Smith (bass, keyboards), and Jim McCarty (drums).
Over the next five years, The Yardbirdsþ sound evolved rapidly. They scored a dozen hit singles in Britain and the U.S., released a handful of memorable studio albums stateside, and toured extensively. Cub Koda said it best in his liner notes to The Yardbirds: Ultimate!: "The Yardbirds were the forerunners of heavy metal, psychedelic music, the extended guitar solo, and that staple of rock improvisation, the þjam.þ" In their latter days the "new" Yardbirds, led by Page, morphed into Led Zeppelin, while cofounders Keith Relf and Jim McCarty put together the classical-rock group Renaissance. Clapton went on to form Cream before going solo. Beck formed The Jeff Beck Group with frontman and future-Face Rod Stewart.
Amazingly, the Yardbirds-era work of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page had never been united on a single U.S. CD collectio
