Hallmark's ^Blues Power] is yet another budget-line release of early stray sessions from Eric Clapton when he was in the Yardbirds. This is divided between cuts that showed up on Five Live Yardbirds and the product of a '65 jam session with Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Bill Wyman, Chris Winters and Ian Stuart that reads more tempting than it sounds. These tracks have all shown up multiple times all over the place and this stands apart from that pack in no such way.
