Having a Rave Up [Germany Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
In its original U.S. vinyl release, this album -- comprised of several singles and B-sides, plus excerpts from Five Live Yardbirds -- was one of the best LPs of the entire British Invasion, ranking on a par with the greatest mid-'60s work of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and far exceeding anything the Who did before The Who Sell Out. The contents have reappeared numerous times in many different configurations, but no collection has ever outdone the sheer compactness and high quality of Epic Records' original Having a Rave Up With the Yardbirds.

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
In its original U.S. vinyl release, this album -- comprised of several singles and B-sides, plus excerpts from Five Live Yardbirds -- was one of the best LPs of the entire British Invasion, ranking on a par with the greatest mid-'60s work of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and far exceeding anything the Who did before The Who Sell Out. The contents have reappeared numerous times in many different configurations, but no collection has ever outdone the sheer compactness and high quality of Epic Records' original Having a Rave Up With the Yardbirds. One major problem since the '60s, as with all of the Yardbirds material owned by Charly Records, has been the sound: For years, Charly only had substandard master materials to offer. That situation improved significantly in the mid to late '90s, and now Repertoire Records is working from sources that are the cleanest and most impressive to have surfaced for these tracks during the CD era. One suspects there might still be room for improvement, but not nearly as much as was previously the case: A quick comparison of tracks between this and the contents of Train Kept A-Rollin' reveal somewhat superior sound here. The Repertoire reissue also adds 11 songs that cut across the group's history, including outtakes and early attempts at songs that subsequently turned up on the Roger the Engineer/Over Under Sideways Down album, some odd studio sides from much earlier, plus the B-side "New York City Blues" a rewrite of "Five Long Years", the single "Shapes of Things," and their featured number from the Antonioni movie Blow-Up, the "Train Kept A-Rollin'" rewrite "Stroll On," featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. The liner notes by Chris Welch are structured somewhat haphazardly, but they give a good account of the history of the varied and overall stunning contents of this CD.
