This is a very hard to come by record -- an original Epic yellow label pressing of this "lost" Yardbirds album, issued twice only to be suppressed both times by Jimmy Page lawsuits. I was thrilled to find this absolutely gorgeous copy recently, and after spending some quality time with it I am ready to let it find its next home. The sound isn't anything to write home about but the music sure is -- Page and crew tear through a blistering set of songs including the precursor to "Dazed & Confused" known here as "I'm Confused". 

4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "The performance also reveals just how far out in front of the psychedelic pack the Yardbirds were by the spring of 1968; Page had pushed the envelope about as far as he could, in terms of high-velocity guitar pyrotechnics." 

Vinyl: EX (can't imagine finding a nicer one)
Cover: VG+ (tiny pinhole upper left)
Play notes: Decent sound, quiet vinyl, superb music -- a very rare find!
