Yardbirds: The Ultimate Rave-Up

Yardbirds: The Ultimate Rave-Up
Yardbirds: The Ultimate Rave-Up by Greg Russo was released on December 20, 2011 by Crossfire Publications. It's now in it's fifth edition and it's easy to see why it's such a popular publication. It definitely lives up to something that the author, Mr. Russo mentions in the Introduction, which is "My goals is still to present the most informative and accurate account of The Yardbirds' history."

That history doesn't just contain information from the classic years of 1963-1968, it's very well updated through all of the reunions and various member changes & flavors. It chronicles The Yardbirds from a rhythm and blues band, to a blues rock band, through the psychedelic years and beyond. It gives accurate histories on each member's subsequent solo careers, but what is most mind boggling is the various appendices at the end of the book which contain tour dates, discographies, radio transmissions and video releases.

If you've read one of the earlier editions or none at all, pick up a copy of Yardbirds: The Ultimate Rave-Up [5th edition]. You'll learn a lot.
