5.0 out of 5 stars Gloriously odd..., 22 April 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birdland (Audio CD)
So what's this then? Two members of a long defunct group re-recording its back-catalogue without the original lead singer or any of its three "superstar" lead guitarists? Well not quite... rather a glorious re-interpretation of eight classic Yardbirds songs coupled with seven new numbers that are completely in-sync with them. The end result? Well if this was 1968 you'd be listening to what would be the Yardbirds' best album by a long way and one almost certainly destined for "cult" status. But it's 2003 and you're listening to something rather different - a carefully crafted and wholly effective recreation of everything that made the Yardbirds what they were dropped into some sort of bizarre time-warp. Look on it as a brilliant tribute album and things get a bit easier but...safer to forget any sensible analysis and simply revel in the wonderful music on offer.
