The Yardbirds - Birdland
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Yardbirds - BirdlandAny band that had three guitar gods—namely Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page—pass through its ranks is bound to enjoy mythological status. So The Yardbirds legend lives on, even 35 years after the group’s demise. First, there was this year’s reissue of the band’s last studio album, Little Games. Now comes this odd offering, featuring founding members Chris Dreja and Jim McCarty and various guest guitarists, including Beck. Yet, strangely, the rerecorded hits and other Yardbirds-style material sound surprisingly good.
