Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

The Province CKLG Boss 30 shows a pic of The Yardbirds. Lead guitarist Jimmy Page is 2nd from right. This would be the groups 2nd appearance in Vancouver & this time by the final line-up of the group. I was lucky enough to be at their first show in July '67 at the Kerrisdale Arena & remember it well. #13 on the 11/11/67 Boss 30 shows their current hit "Ten Little Indians" written by Harry Nilsson & featured Page's famous trademark - playing his guitar with a violin bow. The band was on a long, slow demise at this point mainly due to their working with the wrong record producer. Producer Mickie Most was determined to showcase the band as teenage pop idols & his production of what would be their final studio release "Little Games" was a huge disappointment for fans & bombed badly. Their final few singles would be uneven & low charting. Meanwhile, in concert, Page & leader Keith Relf (vocals, harmonica) were striving for a bluesy, hard-rocking repertoire often showcasing Page's long, enchanting jams & solos. Many songs would become familiar to Led Zeppelin fan in years to comes: "Dazed & Confused" "Good Times, Bad Times" "Tangerine" "Bring It On Home To Me" "Communication Breakdown" & a blistering medley of "How Many More Times/Smokestack Lightning" showcased the best of this band during this time period. A live album by this line-up would get briefly released long after their break-up but was pulled from record shelves by the band who was embarrassed by their performances. It's a great album I still listen to often. However, it hardly hints at the dynamic sound of the Yardbirds in concert during their final years with Jimmy Page as lead guitarist. The group would have to morph into Led Zeppelin for this to become a reality. :rockon:
