The classic 1966 album by the Jeff Beck ‘version’ of the Yardbirds is now available in Special Slip-case 2CD edition! Hurrah!

This contains the complete Stereo and Mono versions of the album, plus 2 bonus singles tracks! Wonderful stuff!

Roger the Engineer (original title: Yardbirds, US, German, and French title: Over Under Sideways Down) was released in 1966 – produced by bassist Paul Samwell-Smith and Simon Napier-Bell.

It was the only Yardbirds album with all originally-written material. Although the record was officially titled The Yardbirds, it has since been referred to, first colloquially, then semi-officially, as Roger the Engineer, a title stemming from the drawing on its front cover, a cartoon of the record’s audio engineer Roger Cameron by band member Chris Dreja.

Due to the influence of Jeff Beck’s experimentation with guitar distortion, the album is considered a precursor to heavy metal.

The original American versions of this album (issued with a completely different album cover and entitled “Over Under Sideways Down”) omitted the songs “The Nazz Are Blue” and “Rack My Mind” and are mixed differently to the British editions. Regardless, record collectors have sought out both the mono (LN 24210) and stereo (BN 26210) versions since several tracks are featured with slight differences in the mixes. Epic’s 1983 reissue (simply entitled The Yardbirds) featured the original UK album cover, the two missing tracks, duplication of the British mixing, and two additional tracks, the 1966 single “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago” b/w “Psycho Daisies”, both featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 349 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

tube says: This is Disc 2. Disc 2 is the only true Mono mix I’ve ever heard and it rocks. Please play it on a Stereo, not headphones.
