Description

    Yardbirds Anderson Theater Concert Handbill (1968). Here's a rare handbill for one of those magical shows everyone wishes they could have attended. The Yardbirds were once one of England's most popular rock bands of the 1960s; superstars Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck had each once been lead guitarist for this mighty band, but had both moved on to other projects by the time of these historic, March 30, 1968 shows. Expectations weren't very high, as new guitar slinger Jimmy Page was barely known by most Americans, and rumors were already circulating about the band's demise (which was true -- later that year, Page recruited new members, and renamed the band Led Zeppelin). Recording equipment was set up for two shows at New York's Anderson Theater, and the results were a blistering Yardbirds show, in which Page seemed at times to be possessed as he soloed. The tapes were used for a limited edition album by the band's American label, Epic; it's now considered the toughest Yardbirds record to find, in any condition. This attractive handbill was printed in a "split-fountain" technique on cream-colored bond, and is in NM- condition, with a light crease in the upper right corner.
