How Did an Airplane Help Inspire One of The Yardbirds Greatest Hits and Send Them on Their First World Tour? – Rayman’s Trac Two

I saw the Yardbirds on two different occasions. The first time was unusual as they were playing in the basement coffee shop of one of the stores in Minneapolis. There were maybe  half a dozen people there, obviously their appearance wasn't advertised much. The whole thing was weird. They played maybe twenty minutes, then packed up their stuff and left.

How Radio Changed Womens Lifestyle In Rural Farming Areas In Wisconsin-Rayman’s Trac Two

We take radio pretty much for granted don't we. In the car, in the workplace, and at home. Turn it on and it instantly provide you with music, sports, news, and weather. Radio started to come into it's own back in the 20's, as radio technology became more accessible to all. Where I live, in Wisconsin, farm and weather reports broadcast on the radio were a life saver to rural communities,  especially farmers. The explosive growth of radio was evident by 1940, where nine out of ten Wisconsin homes had at least one radio.

I Can’t Do Justice To The Song Says Eric Clapton-Rayman’s Trac Two [VIDEO]

 

Now was the time for Eric Clapton to record some new music. He was clean, and felt better than he had in years. After meeting with his manager, it was decided recording an album in Florida would be the next project.

Having recently been through rehab, and a long self imposed exile, Eric seemed to be  having some difficulty in the recording studio. He felt perhaps the album should be delayed until he got his wings back so to speak.

The Cat,The Dude, and the Formation of Hideaway Records-Rayman’s Trac Two

I'd like to tell you a story, but first, let me ask you a question. Where can teenagers go around here to just hang out? The street corner or the Mall is about it right? It didn't used to be that way. Back in the day, a man (I'll call him Cat) got the idea of having a place the teenagers could hang out and listen to some live music. He called it a Teenage Club, and if you were thirteen to eighteen, you could come out and be entertained by live bands, maybe have a burger and coke as no alcohol was  available. He called the place "The Hideaway." Kids came in throngs, and every Friday and Saturday nite, the Hideaway would have four hundred or more kids.

Happenings Ten Years Time Ago by The Yardbirds-Raymans Trac Two [VIDEO]

The Yardbirds are mostly known as the starting point for three of the greatest British rock guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. Undoubtedly they did much to shape the group's sound, but throughout their career, The Yardbirds were very much a singular unit. They were truly one of the great rock bands; one whose contributions went far beyond the scope of their half dozen or so mid-'60s hits ("For Your Love," "Heart Full of Soul," "Shapes of Things," "I'm a Man," "Over Under Sideways Down," "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago").

Back in the mid 50's there was a marriage of two things that dramatically changed people's lifestyle.

Television: TV was finally coming of age, and everyone had to have one in the living room.

Mom and Dad and their two kids Johnny and Mary could now sit on the living room couch and enjoy a TV dinner while watching their favorite television program. They were easy and fast for Mom to prepare after a busy day, and inexpensive too.
