About this copy:  This copy of Five Live Yardbirds is a 1969 UK mono pressing on the Columbia label of an album that was originally released in 1964.

The cover is VG, with little wear but a damaged upper left hand corner and a couple of corner bends.  There is a small ink stain on the back cover.

The disc is VG++ with just a couple of faint sleeve scuffs.  It’s a clean disc that has had little play.

A nice copy of a scarce Yardbirds LP.

Background: Five Live Yardbirds was, in most of the world, the group’s first LP.  Featuring Eric Clapton on guitar, the album was recorded live at the Marquee Club in London in March of 1964.  The album failed to chart in the UK.

The album was never formally released in the United States, though four of the tracks were included on the U.S.-only album Having a Rave Up With the Yardbirds that was released the following year.

Allmusic.com gave Five Live Yardbirds a 4 1/2 star review:

Five Live Yardbirds was the first important — indeed, essential — live album to come out of the 1960s British rock & roll boom. In terms of the performance captured and the recording quality, it was also the best such live record of the entire middle of the decade. Cut at a Marquee Club show in 1964, Five Live Yardbirds was a popular album, especially once Eric Clapton’s fame began to spread after he left the band.
