Biography

The Yardbirds are mostly known to the casual rock fan as the starting point for three of the greatest British rock guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. Undoubtedly, these three figures did much to shape the group's sound, but throughout their career, the Yardbirds were very much a unit, albeit a rather unstable one. And they were truly one of the great rock bands; one whose ... Read more in Amazon's Yardbirds Store

No Yardbirds album divides fans and critics more than their swan-song, LITTLE GAMES. It's the only proper LP recorded with Jimmy Page in the lead guitar slot, and there's so much misinformation surrounding it that it is often dismissed as a "disaster," especially in the U.K. MOJO recently called it uninspired and gave it two lousy stars, despite a superb remix and the addition of several bonus BBC recordings, including a version of "Dazed and Confused." Don't be misled. This album is an excellent testament to the Yardbirds' stretch run as a group. By this time, the group was pared down to a four-piece: Page, Keith Relf (vocals, harp, occasional rhythm guitar), Jim McCarty (drums)and Chris Dreja (bass). Contrary to rumors, the whole group plays throughout the LP, though producer Mickie Most brought in session hacks to record the backing tracks for their 1967-68 A-sides ("Little Games", "Ha Ha Said the Clown", "Ten Little Indians", "Goodnight Sweet Josephine"). The Yardies held sway on the flip sides, however; certainly "Puzzles" and "Think About It" are as reckless, inspired and incindiary as anything the group recorded with Jeff Beck and both could've been big hits if they were promoted as such. The LITTLE GAMES LP had its share of flaws---a scant song list, a lousy mix and a couple of clunker tracks---but its merits are indisputable, even if the material is all over the place (part of its charm, actually). The group's facility with riff-driven pop-rock is evident in McCarty and Page's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor," a great, galloping Mod-rocker with a fab Page bowed guitar section, dynamite McCarty drums and a wistful yet motor-mouth Relf vocal.Read more ›

Not even released in the UK when it first came out in 1967, this is an album that you really should listen to. Sure there are some naff tunes on here but they are far outweighed by the gems like 'Think About It'-White Summer-Dazed and Confused- and more.
Produced by the late Mickie Most this would be the last Yardbirds album till this years release of 'Birdland' For collectors and casual fans alike.
Cheers,
Russ Garrett

The oft maligned Yardbirds album with Jimmy Page on guitar gets the royal treatment from EMI this time. It really is a superb album even though producer Mickie Most made the lads do more than a few peices of fluff. Concentrate on the excellent renitions of the title track, Puzzles, Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailer, Think About It, Glimpses and more. Some super BBC tracks on here too plus The Yardbirds' groundbreaking 'Dazed & Confused'....AllMusic.Com says this is a 'must have' album and I agree! Cheers, Russ Garrett
