Over, Under, Sideways, Down 45 by The Yardbirds

August 21, 2011

Whenever someone mentions The Yardbirds, their three guitarists, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page always dominate the conversation. All three were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with the rest of the band during 1992.

“Over, Under, Sideays, Down” was released as a single, June 25, 1966, in The United States. It was a quirky piece of psychedelic rock. Jeff Beck was the lead guitarist.

The flip side was a song titled “Jeff’s Boogie,” which was based on a Chuck Berry riff. It was one of the songs that first established Jeff Beck’s reutation as a guitarist. ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE placed it at number 23 on their list of The Greatest Guitar Songs Of All Time.
