On the Frontier (colored vinyl)
Review by Gary Hill
Jim McCarty was probably the biggest claim to fame of this group. This band was formed after his work in the Yardbirds and the original version of Renaissance.

Review by Larry Toering

I have to hand it to the Yardbirds for doing what they do, because it takes a lot of guts to put on such an authentic showing with only one remaining original member in the band.

Illusion - Out of the Mist/Illusion

Funny outfit, the Yardbirds. In their early days they were a blues-based band, and their renditions of old standards as "I'm a Man" and "Smokestack Lightning" were something to reckon. But they also knew the zeitgeist of the 1960s, delving into such psychedelia as "Shapes of Things" and "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago" before finally packing it in around 1968.
