Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe two CD edition. Celebrating 50 years of an iconic '60s rock album, this newly remastered and restored set now includes the complete mono and stereo versions of the classic album plus 12 bonus tracks, including eight mono recordings (featuring a non-album single, 'Stroll On' - featured in the film Blow Up - and five Keith Relf solo recordings from the same year) plus four rare alternate recordings, together for the first time on this set. Illustrated 28-page booklet with authoritative liner notes, including detailed data and quotes. Reproductions of the alternative USA, Canadian and German LP covers are displayed inside. Yardbird Jim McCarty writes a new sleeve note, looking back on the 50 years since the release in '66. Set your mind back to the cool and groovy era of the 1960s UK, when rock bands ruled and the world really was a-changin. At the forefront of that rock revolution was a hot young band, The Yardbirds, one of the world's first truly progressive groups. Rated by many critics and collectors as one of the greatest recordings of all time, the all-original Yardbirds album, released in July 1966, was a Top 20 UK hit and became known as Roger The Engineer due to guitarist Chris Dreja's quirky cover design. The album yielded the smash hit single 'Over, Under, Sideways, Down' and other exciting performances such as 'The Nazz Are Blue' and 'Jeff's Boogie' spotlighting ace guitar legend Jeff Beck, whose experimental and pioneering use of fuzz and sustain effects brought a new dimension to the sound of rock. This album is essential for Yardbirds and Jeff Beck fans alike, and indeed for all collectors of classic '60s pop.
