The Yardbirds- Roger the Engineer (Columbia)

Released July 15, 1966, and Recorded between April - June 1966

Roger the Engineer is a pivotal album in The Yardbirds' discography, marking a significant departure from their earlier works and showcasing their evolution. With Jeff Beck's debut as a full-time member, the band ventured into uncharted territory, blending elements of blues, psychedelia, and experimental rock to create a truly innovative sound. Tracks like "Over Under Sideways Down" and "Turn into Earth" exemplify this sonic experimentation, pushing the boundaries of conventional rock music and paving the way for future generations of artists. Despite its slightly uneven nature, the album's eclectic mix of styles and themes resonated with audiences, earning it critical acclaim and commercial success.
