The Yardbirds Create Rock History with First Record Five Live Yardbirds The Yardbirds famously introduced three of the greatest guitarists. This would largely play out on The Yardbird’s debut album. But first, a little history. The Yardbirds Make Their Start. The Yardbirds began in the early 1960’s in the suburban outskirts of London as a band called the Metropolis Blues Quartet. By 1963, the group changed its name to The Yardbirds and the lineup included Keith Relf on vocals and harmonica, Paul Samwell-Smith on bass, Chris Dreja on rhythm guitar, Jim McCarty on drums, and Anthony Top Topham on lead guitar.
To make our first album in so many years has been a lasting ambition of ours, says Dreja. We wanted to do our original songs and our new ones with modern production, while preserving the essence of our sound. To me, it doesn’t sound like we’ve been away for 35 years. The Yardbirds are still a kick-ass, high-energy band, and that comes across on this album. McCarty picks up the narrative thread: Motivation for reforming the band came in about 1995, when Chris and I were approached by an agent who was already working with a reformed Animals. I had been playing since about 1989 in the Jim McCarty Band, a London blues band formed with Top Topham, the original Yardbirds& guitarist from 1963, who was replaced by Eric Clapton after playing with the band for about six months. A recording of the band made in 1993 was recently released for the first time.
