Free Flashback - Jimmy Page and The Yardbirds

Here's a cool nugget I found - free MP3s of a live recording of Jimmy Page and The Yardbirds from 1968.

Who is Jimmy Page and The Yardbirds? You might know Jimmy Page as being the guitarist of Led Zeppelin. The Yardbirds is a band from the '60's known for having included in their roster of rotating guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.

These songs are from one of their last concerts - a band at their breaking point - but this concert was later to be known as one of those legendary nights. Among the classics that you'll hear is Jimmy Page using a violin bow during the finale song "I'm a Man" - giving the audience a taste of things to come with his next band Led Zep.

Historic, English blues-rock at it's best.
