ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Digital Download Only


When Chris Dreja jumped up on stage with the Jim McCarty Band, at London's 100 Club in 1992, it was just a couple of old bandmates having a blow for Auld Lang Syne. No one, the two musicians least of all, could have imagined that, 14 years later, they would still be playing together, and driving that most sainted of all 60s icons, the Yardbirds, into the hearts of an entire new generation. That decision came later, although listening back to tapes of the show, it's hard to see how they could have arrived at any other conclusion.



The lion's share of this momentous show was released back in 1999, and quickly sold out. Volume Two, as its title might suggest, wraps up the remainder of the concert, the bits that didnt fit on last time around. But before you groan into your British Invasion teacup, there's not a track on here that didnt deserve inclusion last time around Indeed, with Shapes Of Things and Over Under Sideways Down kicking off the disc, and For Your Love and I'm A Man wrapping it up, Volume Two is arguably the stronger of the two discs.



In between times, the album powers through a frenzied snapshot of all that made the Yardbirds slice of the Sixties so memorable , a pounding 10 minute romp through Gloria, a speeding Route 66, an electrifying Talkin Bout You, and a positively spellbinding Hey Joe, caught somewhere between Jimi Hendrix's blueprint and Roy Buchanan's reinvention, and sounding just as fresh as either.



The spirit of the Yardbirds is one of those elusive beasts that almost every past member of the band has tried, at some point, to capture it primarily because, they tried too hard. McCarty and Dreja were not trying this particular night; they were just having fun. And that turned out to be the missing formula. Reunion Jam Volume Two, like the Reunion Jam that preceded it, is fun. And it sounds so much like the Yardbirds that it became them.

The Record Changer

Yardbirds rule the roost.
It took a lot of guts for Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja to resurrect the Yardbirds imprint and make it their own. Everything they've done under the name - especially the Reunion Jam CD's - does the name and the legacy proud. After 40 years The Yardbirds still rule the roost.

Keith

A classic rock tour de force - great song selections
This is part 2 of a fine live performance by the Yardbirds (spawning ground for Jeff Beck, Clapton and Jimmy Page). The cd captures a great set list and a fine performance by these 60s rock icons. Two of the original band members are present but this cd captures the band in full flight. Do not expect a top quality studio retouched overdub laden work - this is raw and right of the moment, as it should be. Faithful to the original spirit.....

Raw British R&B
Raw British R&B. For people who like music with a cutting edge and not too pretty this is the stuff.
Makes you NEED to see them live. Are there any young bands out there playing so raw?

Royalty of Rock
Although this CD does not compare to the majesty of the band live these days, it is a great snapshot of the most blueswailing band of all times. As another reviewer said, it is raw rock and roll at its best. Live these days, there are few that can come close. This is the last band of the true Royalty of rock. See them Live!!!
