Review

Review Text It feels somewhat ridiculous to note the early Yardbirds recordings on Masterworks 1963-1965 as such, given the other material exploding out of Great Britain at the time, but the annals of rock history have deemed that every recorded blip by the band that spawned three massively talented guitarists is regarded as a "masterwork." So be it. Fuel Records' two-CD collection of titles from the Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck years -- each has his own CD -- is mostly a rehash of material found on other collections, but it is nice that it's separated this way. From the Clapton years there are live versions of "Let It Rock," "Who Do You Love," and "You Can't Judge a Book by Looking at the Cover" that are far superior to the studio versions. There are also the single versions of "I Wish You Would," "Got to Hurry," and "A Certain Girl." On the Beck disc there are the 45 versions of "Heart Full of Soul," "Still I'm Sad," and the previously unreleased stereo mix of "New York City Blues," which is no big deal. The basic story is this: if you are a Yardbirds fanatic, you'll need this. If not, there are plenty of other records to buy and there are better introductions to the band. ~ Thom Jurek
