I'll Fly Away - Live at Cafe du Monde - Hack Bartholomew

The Yardbirds 2010

I saw the 2010 version of the Yardbirds last Friday at Showcase Live in Foxboro, MA. The Yardbirds are probably my favorite band from the Brittish invasion and I won't make any excuses for seeing this band. No Clapton, Page or Beck. Keith Relf is long dead. All that is left of the original band are Jim McCarty (drums) and Chris Dreja (guitar). The new young members are Andy Mitchell (vocals, harp), Ben King (guitar), and David Small (bass). They are terrific. The young guys have a feel for the music and nobody is try to pretend that they are the originals. They just make great, inspired Yardbirds music.
