Linsey Alexander: My Days Are So Long

"Combines both blues you can dance to or blues you can sit down and listen to. None of the songs were written or exist on paper. They came to me and were created while being on stage. All of the songs on this CD are written by me, they are the documentary of me, things that I have experienced or currently going through. A CD explains you better than you can explain yourself to somebody who doesn't know you"

The Yardbirds: Reunion Jam Vol II

You may have heard it said that sometimes the best bits are left on the cutting room floor. Such is the case with this live album recorded in 1992. To celebreate the band being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Yardbirds founding members Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja began exploring the possibility of reforming the band. A series of concerts were set up and captured on tape. Recorded at the legendary 100 Club in London the album was first released as The Yardbirds Reunion Concert. Later re-released in the U.S.A. as The Yardbirds Reunion Jam in 1999. That album is now out of print. THIS album is what you DID'NT hear on the first one! Great rockin British R&B with McCarty and Dreja from the orginal line-up along with 'Detroit' John Idan on lead guitar and vocals (John has now switched to bass but still sings lead vocals for the band) and Rod Demick on bass
