Eric Clapton & The Yardbirds - Eric Clapton And The Yardbirds (CD)

Eric Clapton's guitar, amp and equipment set up (historical ) In his first band, The Roosters, Eric Clapton played a double cutaway Kay through a Selmer Futurama III Amplifier. During his tenure with the Yardbirds, Eric played a Fender Telecaster through a Vox AC amplifier.

 · A nice compilation no doubt, and also a fitting overview of Clapton's work with the Yardbirds, The Yardbird Years shouldn't disappoint unless one approaches it thinking that it's a definitive best-of -- because it's seems to try and parade itself as being a one-stop single-disc best-of, as so many Yardbirds comps have done in the past. A casual glance at the track listing may indeed.

This is the most likely recording date for "Five Live Yardbirds" according to music historian and author Marc Roberty (see Eric Clapton / Day By Day ). The band is captured at their peak and at one of their regular venues on the U.K. Club and Ballroom circuit.

 · Eric Clapton was only 18 when he joined the Yardbirds in , just after the group took over for the up-and-coming Rolling Stones as the house .

This is a live show from late , on which Chicago blues great Sonny Boy Williamson is backed by an extremely green Yardbirds. Yes, Eric Clapton is on here; no, he doesn't play well, managing some thin, extremely tentative solos that find him stumbling occasionally. It's really not that bad, though, as Sonny Boy himself sings well.
