A new album that includes previously unreleased Yardbirds material from 1968 will be released later this year.

Yardbirds ’68 is divided into two parts: “Live at Anderson Theater,” a concert recording, and “Studio Sketches,” a collection of alternate takes and demos made during that era. Both sets feature Jimmy Page on guitar.

The live portion of the album includes some of the band’s standards, like “Train Kept A Rollin'” and “Heart Full of Soul,” as well as newer songs like “Drinking Muddy Water,” which was on the original band’s final album, 1967’s Little Games; and “Dazed and Confused,” which Page would bring to his new group Led Zeppelin later in 1968.

You can see the track listing for Yardbirds ’68, which will be released on Nov. 5, below.

The double-vinyl record is available for pre-order now exclusively on JimmyPage.com. “We thought this might be lost forever, but we’ve rediscovered it, remixed it,” reads a note on the site from the band’s members in 1968, Page, Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja. “It’s of great historical importance. We’re delighted to see the release.”

Page took over guitar duties in the band following stints by Eric Clapton (1963-65) and Jeff Beck (1965-66). Page made just one album with the Yardbirds, Little Games, but toured with them until the band eventually disintegrated and Page formed Led Zeppelin, who were originally called the New Yardbirds.

Founding drummer McCarty currently leads a revamped version of the Yardbirds, who have just launched a crowdfunding campaign for a new album. The band’s most recent release is 2003’s Birdland.

I think it comes out November sometime.
Don't quote me , but the drummer is the only original member, James McCarty.

Johnny A plays guitar.

I think the question "Is it out yet" referred to the previously unreleased 1968 recording with Jimmy Page, not something more recent.

My question about the 1968 release is that the promotional write-up only seems to discuss it as a vinyl release. Will it come out on CD, or is it a vinyl-only affair?

"All three surviving members of the 1968 lineup participated in preparing the album and issued a joint statement:


We thought this might be lost forever, but we’ve rediscovered it, re-mixed it. It’s of great historical importance. We’re delighted to see the release.  

Jim McCarty, Chris Dreja and Jimmy Page"


Don't know about the other two.
But Page has had the concert audio removed from the market a few times over the years(Since the early 70's),Don't think i believe the "Lost forever" part of the statement..

Pretty sure this is the same show that I got back in the cassette trading days. It was very similar to the Live Yardbirds album. I always that the album was a bit "rough" sounding and remember the show being the same.

But who knows how many generations deep the recording I got was. I'm sure the recording will be a better source or at least the master.

I have had the Live Yardbirds album a long time but can't remember the last time I listened.
