100 GREAT SONGS FROM THE BRITISH INVASION: HEART FULL OF SOUL-THE YARDBIRDS

The Yardbirds – Heart Full Of Soul (1965, Terre Haute Pressing, Vinyl) -  Discogs

100 Great Songs From The British Invasion: 1963-1966: Heart Full Of Soul- The Yardbirds. The Yardbirds second American hit- following ‘For Your Love’ in 1965. Another song written by future 10CC member Graham Gouldman. When they first recorded ‘Heart Full Of Soul’ it was with a sitar player. They didn’t care for the results and their guitarist Jeff Beck played the part on electric guitar making it sound like a sitar. Beck used a fuzz box on the song- which some claim is the first significant use of the effect in rock music. Beck had replaced Eric Clapton earlier in the year and the band was experimenting with different musical styles- the experiments worked. The Yardbirds were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.

  1. Like the two above said, a really great song and sound. Always liked it. Canada’s Blue Rodeo played it in concert at times and it was fantastic, always hoped they’d release it either on a live album or do it in the studio.
