JIMMY PAGE w/The Yardbirds Fri, August 12th 1966

Recommended Posts

Yardbirds '66 Photo Gallery:

http://www.q95.com/cc-common/gallery/

The set of 21 color photos in the gallery were taken on Fri, August 12th 1966 at the Indiana Beach Ballroom in Monticello, IN. This was Jimmy's eighth concert performance

in the United States and they performed two separate shows (sets) before moving on to play the Cold Spring Resort in Terre Haute, IN that night.

Jimmy appears in photos 6-7, 9, 11-13, 18-19 & 21 with photo 13 being the best of the assortment. He was the bassist with Jeff Beck as the lead guitarist.

They returned to IN to play the Indiana State University - Memorial Field House in Terre Haute on November 9th 1966.

I would very much appreciate any additional photos or newpaper ads/reviews which can

be found.

Kind Regards,

Steve A. Jones

Jimmy's playing up in front of the stage which is unusual for a bassist, at least a bassist who doesn't double as lead singer (ala Cream). Too bad there is no bootleg to go with this.

I would have loved to see this- "Happenings..." is one of my favorite Yardbirds songs!

Since we're discussing Jimmy & The Yardbirds- I was listening to "Glimpses" from Little Games today and was wondering if that's a sitar Jimmy's playing on it or is it just a guitar tuned to sound like one ?(sorry to all the guitarists if this is a stupid question)

I know Jimmy Page bows the guitar continually through that track. and it has "flanging/Phasing" on it.

I always played it with the low E tuned down to a D. that helps make it drone like a sitar.

I believe rileymaher has answered your inquiry. I can add only that I have most if not

all of the Little Games album session recordings and I will go through them to see if

the alternate takes or studio chatter reveals anything further to what riley said.

Just a quick note to add The Milton Berle telecast (so far as I know) is not in circulation.

Another mastertape to locate and liberate!

Thanks Steve- is that the "Little Games Sessions & More" (EMI Legends of Rock & Roll Series) cd you're talking about, or is there another cd of Little Games sessions out there?

Just a note to mention a segment from 'The Milton Berle Show' telecast on Dec 2, 1966 does appear in Rhino Home Video's 1992 VHS release 'The Yardbirds', which is a music

and interview retrospective. I seem to recall Jimmy and Peter Grant interviews are also

included.
