Yardbirds - Glimpses 1963 - 1968 [2011] (5 x CD's)

Glimpses 1963–1968 is a 5-CD compilation boxed set by English rock group the Yardbirds. It contains various live and demo recordings interspersed with interviews with group members. Released on 5 December 2011 by Easy Action Recordings, the album was compiled by group biographer Greg Russo with the Yardbirds' approval.

Three years in the making an Official box set of rarities and unheard material. It also documents the bands transition from RnB stalwarts in the beginning into the Pop world and ultimately on to more experimental sounds and lastly to become a type of blueprint for what was to become Led Zeppelin. Features the most complete set of BBC recordings fully Re-Mastered. Includes material featuring all three of the Yardbirds legendary guitarists Eric Clapton , Jeff Beck & Jimmy Page. 

This new box set gives a very thorough insight into the group's musical development, and particularly in what the group stood for as a live-band. The vast majority of the many tracks over five CDs are live recordings from various places in the world, covering all periods of the group.  Besides the many live recordings there are exciting alternative takes , among others, "He's Always There", "Turn Into Earth" and "I Can't Make Your Way". Of regular studio recordings there are only a few. Many BBC recordings are actually studio recordings in fine sound. Among these it is especially interesting to hear "The Sun is Shining," "Dust My Broom," "Most Likely You Go Your Way" and "My Baby" songs that the group never officially released. Also interesting to hear how songs such as "I'm a Man" changed character over the years. (Amazon)

  3. Completely off subject but hey, that's me. It seems you have a number of faithful readers. How 'bout asking your readers to suggest songs for a compilation? You could name a theme, like pterodactyls, or snowshoes, or baby Brussel sprouts, or maybe you might choose else, but the point is it ties us together a bit. just a thought

    1. Hi Deadmandeadman,
      I really appreciate the idea you pose. In the past I have done just that. There was the "Desert Island Album, Readers Poll Song Choice" and the "Singer Songwriters, Readers Poll" which was a great way to share. It is probably time again to do this again so I am pleased about your prompt. This requires a lot of work so I will have to plan the best way to achieve this. Thanks again Deadmandeadman.
      Cheers,

  4. Surely the best Yardbirds compilation ever! A great purpose, indeed. I have it in FLAC and deleted the interviews of little interest for a frenchie like me.
