Two CD archive release. Yardbirds '68 presents an 18-track double album produced by legendary guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. This special album features remixed live recordings from the Anderson Theater in March 1968 alongside studio sketches recorded in the same era and the album features music from The Yardbirds members Jim McCarty, Chris Dreja, Jimmy Page and Keith Relf. "We thought this might be lost forever, but we've rediscovered it, remixed it. It's of great historical importance. We're delighted to see the release."

Here's why I didn't go with 5 stars:
1. Removing Relf's intros. This seems to be typical of official live releases from the era, especially when Jimmy Page is behind them. Why he has a problem with the talking between songs (which I've always loved) I'll never know, but he does (compare Led Zeppelin official live releases with unofficial live releases [bootlegs] and you'll see what I mean).
2. The studio sketches are good, but not as good as they could have been. Knowing That I'm Losing You is just the instrumental track... Relf's vocals have been completely removed. I hate that. Luckily, I have the Cumular Limits CD, so I can hear this song with vocals. But they should have been included here, as well. Also, Spanish Blood (track 2) is missing the second verse, which is an... odd... omission. If it's because Page gets a bit uncomfortable around cuss words (which... I have to say... would be pretty funny if true), it's easy enough these days to censor the word in some way. Instead, the entire verse was just... removed.
Overall, Live at the Anderson Theater is phenomenal, and Studio Sketches is good. I recommend this for Yardbirds fans and Led Zeppelin completists.
