  1. Can you judge a man by the way he wears his hair? Hell yes!… Donald Trump… traitor, racist, rapist king of perverts!

  2. One of my two favorites by the Yardbirds. The other being Over, Under, Sideways, Down. Still have the Having a Rave Up with the Yardbirds album. Also have it on cd.

  3. I was judged as a teen for being different in the 60's. Meaning I was into music and not a jock like everyone in my neighborhood. Still being judged today. I could care less !!

  4. This was the B side to Shapes of Things. Most B sides were rubbish but I played this over and over. Didnt know who Jeff Beck was but loved the guitar solo. Thanks for posting.

  5. Jimmy Page actually threw bits of the solo into his solos in Zeppelin's live performances of Immigrant Song! Interesting to hear where it came from.

  6. I was a toddler when this came out in 1965, but as far as I can tell, this was the "heaviest" (loudest) guitar solo from 1965. It influenced Hendrix, David Gilmour, the entire psychedelic scene, and all the heavy music that came after (including Aerosmith). And how many other rock songs before it dealt with such hardcore issues like discrimination? This is my favorite Yardbirds song on all of these and many other levels. It has been said many times that NO ONE sounded like the Yardbirds, and this recording is a prime example!

  7. Learned to play guitar on a Stella acoustic . And when I graduated to my first electric, a Sears electric solid body, this is the first song I learned on that guitar. And I still wish I had that guitar and the Silvertone amp – a tube amp with one 12" spkr. now both long gone…… Hail to the stuff we should have kept and the stuff we did keep.

  8. Too pop. That’s why Clapton left. The solo is incredible with distorted guitar way before Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton.
