I have been a loyal fan of The Yardbirds since the mid 1960’s. More than any other band of the time (I would say), they were part of the ‘scene’, and even made an appearance in the popular film of the time ‘Blow Up’. They had various lineups including Jeff Beck, but for me it was the Jimmy Page era that produced their finest work. In the mid 1990’s, founding members Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja reformed the band with a different line-up, fronted by the incredible vocalist John Idan. I saw them live about eight years ago and they were fabulous. This CD (a live recording), is worth a listen, before to dig into the band’s past glories.
