The Yardbirds were a 1962 British rock band, noted for spawning the careers of several of rock music's most famous guitarists, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. Jeff Beck replaced Eric Clapton, who went on to the Bluesbreakers. Beck then asked Page if he would like to join the band as a bassist, but quickly switched to guitar.
The Yardbirds' Greatest Hits came about in the wake of the relative failure of the single "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago," and Jeff Beck being fired from the lineup. The band's future seemed in doubt, and this collection was released only in the United States, where it was seen mostly as a cash-in effort by Epic Records. And the record was, indeed, something of a miracle - a perfect compilation of the group's best commercial sides. The album's first side tore through their most inventive and successful singles, from the heavy metal-textured "Shapes of Things" through the Gregorian chant-flavored proto-psychedelia of "Still I'm Sad," across the harpsichord-driven pop of "For Your Love" and the ed "Over Under Sideways Down," with a short digression to the non-charting (but highly worthwhile) "Five.
