Yardbirds back with some classics of yesteryear
Tim Grimm: The Turning Point
The multi-talented Mr Grimm pursued a successful career during the 90s, appearing in US TV series and films such as Mercury Rising and Clear and Present Danger.
Music was always his first love however, and Tim returned to Indiana in 1999 to immerse himself in the life of a hay farmer and record albums blessed with a spare immediacy that's often reminiscent of classic Woody Guthrie or Nebraska era Springsteen. The Turning Point is the acoustic balladeer's latest subtly memorable offering, blessed with fine songs such as The Lake and an affectionate tribute to his old friend Ramblin' Jack Elliott entitled King of the Folksingers.

The Yardbirds provided an invaluable performing outlet for some of rock's finest guitar players during their commercial heyday in the mid-sixties,with the likes of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton all polishing their techniques with the band before moving on to bigger and better things. Founder members Chris Dreja and Jim McCarty were still performing under the Yardbirds banner when these tracks were recorded at a variety of American venues, overseeing an enjoyable jaunt down memory lane with classics such as Shapes of Things and Train Kept Rollin'.
Andy Scott: The Solo Singles
Andy Scott is best remembered for his work with glamrockers Sweet, but the singer and guitarist also enjoyed solo success after his former outfit's sad demise, although this appears to have been largely confined to Germany, Australia and South Africa. This new Angel Air anthology gives British record-buyers an opportunity to discover just what they missed, serving up a synth-laden selection of 80s pop ditties in the mould of Go West or Power Station.
