THE YARDBIRDS - GOOD MORNING LITTLE SCHOOLGIRL


THE YARDBIRDS - 'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl'/'I Ain't Got You' (Columbia DB 7391) October 1964

The second single by The Yardbirds stalled just outside the top 40 and like their debut is quite difficult to find. Both songs have got the English R&B template that was very popular at the time but without a hit The Yardbirds would struggle to expand their horizons outside of the London area.

'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl' is notable for a killer Eric Clapton guitar break that elevates the song above average. The flip 'I Ain't Got You' is a bluesy shuffle with another classy guitar break and harmonica by (presumably) Keith Relf.

I have scanned the pictures of The Yardbirds from my Teenbeat annual. I've never seen these pics anywhere else before. The old fashioned road lights being a relic of history. It's funny seeing someone as serious as Eric Clapton holding one up with a smirk on his face.
