The Yardbirds released their LP “Over, Under, Sideways Down” on Aug. 8, 1966. The album had been released as “The Yardbirds” (better know as ‘Roger The Engineer”) in the UK. The original American versions of this album had a completely different album cover and name as the song “Over Under Sideways Down” was already a hit in the states. The US version omitted the songs “The Nazz Are Blue” (which was sung by Jeff Beck) and “Rack My Mind.” Record collectors have sought out both the mono (LN 24210) and stereo (BN 26210) versions since several tracks are featured with slight differences in the mixes
The album was reissued in 1983 by Epic. It was titled “The Yardbirds”, featured the original UK album cover, the two missing tracks, duplication of the British mixing, and two additional tracks, the 1966 single “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago” b/w “Psycho Daisies”, both featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
They just don’t make records like this anymore. (We know there are some great new records out there today, but for us old-er people, records like this defined our generation).
Happy 52nd US Birthday to “Over, Under, Sideways Down”!! How many of you have this record with this cover?
