The Yardbirds Live at the BBC (Warner Archives 2-46694, 1997) compiles 26 recordings made for broadcast from eight different sessions between 1965 and 1968. All the songs feature either Jeff Beck (1965–66) or Jimmy Page (1967–68) on guitar. Eric Clapton left the group shortly before the first recording session represented on this CD. These recordings were originally released in 1991 as Yardbirds ...On Air.[2]
