Yardbirds - Birdland

When this came out in 2003, it marked the first studio release by the Yardbirds in 35 years. In that time, of course, the personnel had changed quite a bit. Even those inclined to get excited by reunions of great bands should know right off that it includes just two original members, drummer Jim McCarty and rhythm guitarist Chris Dreja (though Jeff Beck plays guest guitar on one number, "My Blind Life"). Rounded out by three "new" members (including bassist John Idan, whose lead singing sounds fairly close to original Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf in style and tone), the record also features guest lead guitar cameos by Jeff Baxter, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Brian May, with Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls singing lead on "For Your Love." The instinct is to make cruel, sardonic jokes about how the absence of Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and (for the most part) Jeff Beck doesn't matter, as guitarists were always the weak links in the Yardbirds anyway.

Yes, The Yardbirds ! Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja with the new line up and guests. Jeff Beck is there too, but not Page nor Clapton. Who cares ?

Somehow I respect YB a lot. That is because I have always been a fan of Beck, Clapton and other guys.

However today I doubt a lot the right of old blokes to perform. Say there will be a concert of Rolling Stones very soon in Australia. Idiots go crazy pay hundreds of dolars to see old bums!

Nothing is better than good old LP.
It represents the quality of sound and even smell(!) of the time.
