THE YARDBIRDS – \”Glimpses\” (Epic BN 26313) July 1967

It\’s always been a mystery to me why EMI decided not to release the album \”Little Games\” by The Yardbirds. I have read that it was a likely move because recent singles had all flopped and their popularity in Britain was ebbing away. This explanation seems a little harsh and ultimately British fans were oblivious to some quite brilliant and awe inspiring moments like \”Glimpses\”. 

With this number The Yardbirds attain some serious third-eye territory with a mesmerizing mind-blower. Listen out for way-out guitar, effects, sitar, other worldly recitation and all meshed together with a psychedelic gregorian chant.

\”Energy radiates from the source
The life around us is but a reflection of our own.\”


  1. I always liked this yardbirds effort (the album little games) although my friends always called it weird. oh well…
