We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Not to look after the Yardbirds case would have been a huge error. First because they have been one of the major bands of the 60s, and second because three of the best english guitarist have been a central member: Erci Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. You know my love of Beck's music (ABO#001) and you'll understand my favourite Yardbirds era be his's.
But, for many people who are not aware of the Yardbirds history, the band never really broke up. In fact different band with other names have followed the adventure. When the Yardbirds splitted in July 1968, Jimmy Page wanted to go on and united a new line up as 'the new Yardbirds' which switched to 'Led Zeppelin' according to a Keith Moon (The Who) idea.
During the 80s, after Bonham's death, other Yardbirds members founded the Box Of Frogs. nothing in common with the great Zep. Last, after a reunion Tour in 1990, the Yardbirds still tours and have even recorded a new album: Birdland, nothing but an auto-tribute.
This compilation spans the first era of the Yardbirds, dropping both Reunion tour album and Birdland, because both don't really brings nothing new.
