The Yardbirds recorded live in Stockholm, April 1967 presented in top quality sound as never before. With international hit singles prompting a frantic tour schedule, the Yardbirds had undergone several line-up changes since their formation - not least the departure of guitarist Eric Clapton in March 1965. In 1966 founder member bassist Paul Samwell-Smith quit to concentrate on production, while guitarist Je- Beck left later that year. Consequently it was a trimmed down Yardbirds comprising Keith Relf (vocals, harmonica), Jimmy Page (lead guitar), Chris Dreja (bass) and Jim McCarty (drums) who kicked o- their Spring 1967 tour of Scandinavia with an eight-song set under the banner Popgaster I Stockholm recorded for Sweden's national broadcaster SRT. Alongside the hits 'Heart Full Of Soul', 'I'm A Man' and 'Shapes Of Things', the title track from their new album Little Games also features. While honouring their R&B roots, this performance finds the Yardbirds embracing a heavier, more psychedelic vibe typified by 'Over Under Sideways Down' - truly the shape of things to come. Repertoire is delighted to present these recordings in pristine sound quality as never before complete with a new essay by Chris Welch. An essential for all Yardbirds fans, this special edition is presented in an eye-catching gatefold digipak.
