Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1984 debut album by this band comprised of former Yardbirds members Chris Dreja, Paul Samwell-Smith and Jim McCarty, who were joined by former Medicine Head and British Lions guitarist and vocalist John Fiddler. This debut album featured special guests Jeff Beck and Rory Gallagher, along with harmonica player Mark Feltham and keyboard players Max Middleton and Geraint Watkins. Features two bonus tracks: 'X-Tracks' and 'Nine Lives'.

It's unfortunate that this group was missed by the general public. The surviving members of the original YARDBIRDS regroup with a little help from John Fiddler on lead vocals and guest guitar spots from Ray Majors, Rory Gallagher, and old band make Jeff Beck for an album a great songs. The first time I heard the haunting single "Back Where I Started" I was hooked. After aquiring the album I was stunned to learn that it was in fact the Yardbirds (minus Keith Relf who had unfortunately passed tragicly).

Having disbanded in 1968, this legendary English band was back with fresh tans and strong songs. In fact, this album was one of the strongest efforts of the 80's. --- tehparadox.com

Box of Frogs was a band formed in 1983 by former members of The Yardbirds, who released their first album in 1984. The core group comprised Chris Dreja, Paul Samwell-Smith, and Jim McCarty. Vocals on their eponymous album were done by John Fiddler, formerly of Medicine Head and British Lions; on the second album Fiddler sang on five tracks with guests including Graham Parker, Ian Dury and Roger Chapman singing lead on the others. Many musicians guested on their albums (including Rory Gallagher and Mark Feltham), with several tracks featuring Steve Hackett. Former Yardbirds guitarists Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page guested on their first and second albums respectively.

The group showed promise on the first album of rock radio friendly tunes, featuring Jeff Beck. "Back Where I Started" was in the top ten in the U.S., and the album was a featured number one on college campuses. Plans were made for a U.S. tour, but it is alleged that Samwell-Smith, Dreja, and McCarty nixed the idea of the tour, much to John Fiddler's dismay. Jeff Beck, who along with Dzal Martin was considered as the lead guitarist for such a tour, was reportedly disgusted at his ex-bandmates' refusal to tour America. He took no part on the second album, and Fiddler barely chose to do so before walking out. "Asylum" is one of the few songs Fiddler sang on, and was the only one featuring Page.

The track Back Where I Started is regularly included in the set-list of the revived Yardbirds.
