Stonehenge Playlist 08-20-10
This weeks classic rock album began the show in fine style: The Yardbirds -- Roger the Engineer. We played the US reissue on Epic from 1983, as it neatly compiles all of the different tracks from the US and UK releases from the Summer of 1966. '66? Yes, these boys were way ahead of their time. The Reissue also throws in the single 'Happenings Ten Years Time Ago' and it's B-Side 'Psycho Daisies', which are notable for being one of the earliest (some would say the first) psychedelic singles, and featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page in twin guitar mode! Phew!
Here's some rare footage of the group with Page and Beck (hilariously, Page is playing bass here) from a show in France in 1966 before Beck jumped ship, leading eventually to the spawning of the beast we call Led Zeppelin.
