The Yardbirds: Steeled Blues

Today’s Friday Flipside was flea market find for me back in 1972 or 73. In those days, I scoured the local flea market at the Great Valley Shopping Center for all types of records including LPs, EPs, 45s, and 78s. Not familiar with the flip written by Jeff Beck, I purchased the single solely based on the A side of “Heart Full of Soul.”

When I got back home, I played both sides and really loved the flip of “Steeled Blues.” The song features the slide guitar of Jeff Beck and adding to the blues ambiance is Keith Relf’s harmonica. The song originally was a single only release.
