1966 Yellow Label Mono Original With 1C/1C Stampers. Cover Is VG+. “The Yardbirds Entered 1967 In A State Of Flux -- Behind Them, Mostly By More Than A Year, Lay A Brace Of Hit Singles Had Carried Them To An International Audience, This Despite Lineup Changes That Helped Bring About Some Dizzying Shifts In Their Sound, Pushing Them From Blues-Based Rock Toward Pop/Rock And Progressive Pop, And Into Psychedelia, With An Overlay Of Formative Heavy Metal In Some Of The Latter Material. The Yardbirds' Greatest Hits Came About In The Wake Of The Relative Failure Of The Single "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago," And Jeff Beck Being Fired From The Lineup. The Band's Future Seemed In Doubt, And This Collection Was Released Only In The United States, Where It Was Seen Mostly As A Cash-In Effort By Epic Records. This Humble Release Yielded Unexpected Dividends, However, As It Climbed To Number 28 On The U.S. Album Charts, The Group's Highest-Charting LP Ever, And Renewed Interest In The Band On The Part Of The Label. The Result Was Another Year's Worth Of Commercial Life For The Yardbirds, At Least On The Far Side Of The Atlantic (EMI, The Group's U.K. Label, Wasn't Nearly As Keen To Pursue Further Efforts On The Band's Behalf), Although, Ironically, Most Of What They Recorded During That Year Would Never Make It Into Their Concert Set -- By Contrast, A Significant Chunk Of What Was On The Yardbirds' Greatest Hits Would Stay In Their Set Until The End. And The Record Was, Indeed, Something Of A Miracle -- A Perfect Compilation Of The Group's Best Commercial Sides.” – Bruce Eder, AMG
