When British groups were being introduced to the world back in the Sixties, their albums were often presented in different formats from the original UK release. The Yardbirds first studio album ‘The Yardbirds’ (aka ‘Roger The Engineer’) was released in Canada as ‘Over Under Sideways Down’, in recognition of the album’s biggest hit track.
This Digipak CD reproduces the Canadian edition, complete with its own distinctive LP cover that differs from other Repertoire versions. The real highlight is the music, with Jeff Beck playing lead guitar on powerful numbers like ‘The Nazz Are Blue’. Hit song ‘Shapes Of Things’ is included on a track list that was specially amended for the Canadian LP and makes this a real collector’s item.
