5.0 out of 5 stars Once considered the Holy Grail of Live Albums..., November 1, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live Yardbirds! Featuring Jimmy Page (Audio CD)
Rare recording thanks to being pulled off the shelves a couple of times (but you've probably already heard that story). Although the quality of the recording is vastly better than the bootleg I heard 25 years ago, be aware that it still sounds like it was recorded in a bathroom; therefore this is really for the hardcore Jimmy Page fan. On this Cd, Keith calls him "Jimmy Magic-Fingers, grand sorcerer of the magic guitar." He was spot-on with that comment. Jimmy's guitar-work on Heart Full of Soul and Dazed & Confused is his usual amazing self. He clearly hit his prime at this time (which he maintained for a solid 10 years). This Cd includes one of the earliest recordings on vinyl of Jimmy and his violin bow which makes it somewhat historic. A friend sent me a DVD of rare footage of the Yardbirds showing Jimmy playing his violin bow with the Yardbirds in the Netherlands & in France (having evolved into his Zep-look), and with very early Zeppelin in Scandinavia. My DVD doesn't have a label, but for hardcore Jimmy fans, it's worth looking for.
