Everyone knows The Yardbirds, the legendary band that graduated three of the great PhD’s of rock guitar: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. The Yardbirds created hard rock out of standard twelve-bar blues, cranking the tempos and the amps, expanding the range of the electric guitar. On the British club scene, The Yardbirds, the Animals, and the Rolling Stones ruled the stages. “The Yardbirds laid the groundwork for rock guitar as we know it” – Parke Puterbaugh. It all fuelled their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (1992).
Their story does not end there. With their knack for locating brilliant guitar players, founding members Chris Dreja and Jim McCarty continue their tradition of working with musicians of extreme individual talent and potential. The Yardbirds remain wizards at producing a new generation of master players.
"The Yardbirds have always been a collecting point for authentic and explorative musicians, past and present", says McCarty.
Rockers of all ages will love the way The Yardbirds recreate and reinvent their classics "I'm Not Talking", "The Nazz Are Blue", "For Your Love", "Train Kept a Rolling", "Shapes of Things", "Over, Under, Sideways, Down", "Mr. You're a Better Man Than I" and "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago".
"Absolutely stunning live," Dreja marvels, "and today, with better sound equipment, [these songs] have [come] into the 21st century really well."
