Background: Having a Rave Up With the Yardbirds was the second album by the Yardbirds to be released in the United States and it reached #52 on the U.S. album charts. It also remained in print longer than any other album by the group, staying in print until 1972.
Side one of the album contains studio tracks with Jeff Beck on guitar. Side two contains live tracks with Eric Clapton on guitar, though he isn’t pictured on the cover or credited in the liner notes. The tracks on side two were taken from the band’s UK Five Live Yardbirds LP, which wasn’t released in the United States.
The album was originally released in mono and stereo, though the stereo pressings were partially in rechanneled (fake) stereo, making the mono pressings the more desirable version. The mono version was deleted in early 1968, making it somewhat rarer than the stereo version, which stayed in print for a few more years.
In its original U.S. vinyl release, this album, comprised of several singles and B-sides plus excerpts off of Five Live Yardbirds, was one of the best LPs of the entire British Invasion, ranking on a par with the greatest mid-’60s work of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones; it was also just a step away from being a best-of the Yardbirds as well. No collection has ever outdone the sheer compactness and high quality of Having a Rave Up.
