3.0 out of 5 stars Nice enough document..., 12 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Five Live Yardbirds (Audio CD)
This is a live recording of The Yardbirds in 1964 and what you get with this cd is an enthusiast show that explodes with energy from the very beginning! In addition this cd augments the 10 original tracks recorded at the concert with 8 more live sessions from other Yardbirds incarnations featuring, of course, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, who you will hear doing his early Zeppelin routines (violin bow and such) as early as on these recordings. On the down side though, the poor sound which is muddy at times, even though you get to hear all the instruments, and singer Keith Relf's small range and poor vocal technique. But what saves this record for me, is the absolute energy the boys put in their performance and a young boy introduced by the MC as Eric 'Slowhand' Clapton. This record is worth if only for his solos...he even gets to sing on "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" and delivers some pretty good solos on "Five Long Years", an absolute classic which the man is still playing live to this very day. This is a must for Yardbirds fans and also recommended for the Clapton collector. I love you, Esther.

I disagree on two counts:- Keith Relf was a great vocalist whose tone suited the Yardbirds perfectly. Clapton was a poor vocalist then and didn't improve over the years.
