AllMusic Review by

Featuring two different lineups of the seminal British R&B outfit, RAVE UP WITH THE YARDBIRDS distills tracks from their UK debut album FIVE LIVE YARDBIRDS, featuring guitarist Eric Clapton, and a later collection of studio recordings featuring Clapton's replacements, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. It includes several classics, including the almost-hit "Heart Full of Soul," the eastern-influenced drones of "Still I'm Sad" (around this time, every UK band was doing their Indian music thing), and the Ray Davies-like social commentary of "Mister, You're A Better Man Than I."
