Customer Review

on 13 May 2010
The original Five Live Yardbirds from as far back as 1964 is a classic live album, up there with J Geils Live Full House and Dr Feelgood's Stupidity and Wilco Johnson's live tracks on the Solid Senders album. It's a bit short on length but high on energy, and is a cornerstone of a 60's rock collection, a time when lps were few and far between from just a handful of groups like the Yardbirds. Live they were full of punk energy and fun. I was one of those fortunates to see them at the 5th Jazz and Blues Festival at Richmond in 1965 when Jeff Beck had just joined the band, and they were every bit as good as the earlier Clapton line up. I have the original cd release without the bonus tracks from the Crawdaddy Club which I can't vouch for - anyone out there who can? If they're as good as the first set then no question, this is the cd to get. Paint stripper indeed. Beware of others which have different listings; listen first if you can.
