Album artwork for Roger The Engineer - Half-Speed Master Edition by The Yardbirds

First released in the summer of 1966, ‘Yardbirds’ (or Roger The Engineer as it became known’) showcases the Yardbirds at the peak of their powers. Featuring the classic line-up of Jeff Beck, Keith Relf, Jim McCarty, Chris Dreja, and Paul Samwell-Smith, the group explored explosive new sonic territories, pushing their blues-rock sound into the realms of the avant-garde, psychedelia and Indian music.

This new edition has been expertly cut from the original stereo tapes using precision half-speed mastering by Cicely Balston at AIR Mastering. Half-speed mastering is a vinyl cutting technique that improves groove accuracy and transient information creating an incredibly detailed stereo image with a natural high frequency response. Pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, featuring an obi strip and housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve. Also includes a 4-page booklet with extensive liner notes by David French based on interviews with Jimmy Page, Paul Samwell- Smith, Jim McCarty and Simon Napier-Bell.
