Five Live Yardbirds was the first important -- indeed, essential -- live album to come out of the 1960s British rock & roll boom. In terms of the performance captured and the recording quality, it was also the best such live record of the entire middle of the decade. Cut at a Marquee Club show in 1964, Five Live Yardbirds was a popular album, especially once Eric Clapton's fame began to spread after he left the band.
