The Yardbirds are back. This album was worth getting just to listen to some of the best guitarists of all time rock on some of my favorite Yardbirds tracks. The album has 8 of their classic songs, and 7 new ones. The new recordings sound great, most of them are pretty dead on from the originals. ‘For your love,’ is my favorite on the album. Johnny Rzeznik does an excellent job with the vocals. I suggest you take a listen to this song if you can. Another standout track is ‘Over Under Sideways Down’ with Slash on guitar. Slash also does a great job on this track, and his solo at the end is awesome. You’ll want to crank up the volume for this one. Birdland just reaffirms why this band was so great back in the 60’s, and I highly recommend it. It’s just great, classic rock n’ roll.

This is a truely classic album. After seeing the band in S.J.C. over the weekend, we had to have the cd. It does not disappoint. We listened that night, we listened all weekend, we'll continue to listen for another 30 years.

To say that this is an amazing album due to the presence of some of the greatest rock guitarists of all time doing guest appearances should not detract from the originals; Clapton, Beck and Paige. The point is that every guitarist has a different style and each was asked to play on a tune that fit his style. It is a little bit like the Steely Dan formula; write a good song and then go get the best musicians. Can anyone find a body of songs better than the Yardbirds? Or better guitarists better than these guys? Come on. AMG gave this two stars. The reviewer must be one of those who thinks nothing can be as good as the original. While that is usually true, Joe Cocker did a Beatles tune better than the originals so it is possible. And here are some of the originals (including Jeff Beck on one tune) doing these great tunes. And then the guitar work. If you're a purist and don't get this album to hear the tunes, get it to listen to the guitar work. Simply amazing.
