3.0 out of 5 stars Nice place to start..., 12 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Live at the Craw Daddy Club: Remastered with Bonus Tracks (Audio CD)
This is a recording of some live shows at the Crawdaddy by Sonny Boy Williamson when he toured England back in 1963 and needed a backing band. Anyway, The Yardbirds soon began to be more than just backing the bluesman, as these recordings show, and even young Clapton gets to do a nice enough solo or two... The sound of these recordings is quite clear and you also get to witness the enthusiasm of the crowd even though these young Yardbirds sound a bit hesitant at times. Plus, you get a total of sixteen tracks of the concert on this cd, while the original vinyl only gave you nine. Recommended for huge fans of either Sonny or The Yardbirds, or if you'd like to hear some good old blues the way it used to be, this is a splendid place to start because you get to hear a sixties british blues band as well as an old bluesman doing the real thing. It gets three stars though, because although this is good, it is not outstanding in any way.

P.D. You remember the bluesy approach of Robert Plant's vocals and harmonica on Led Zeppelin's "Bring It On Home"? Well, as soon as you hear Sonny Boy mumbling the words to the opening number on this ("Bye Bye Bird"), you'll see where good old Percy picked it up from. I love you, Esther.
