Jeffrey Lewis - Its the ones that have cracked that the light shines through
Great signer/songwriter/story teller
One of the best gigs I've seen was him in the back of a small pub with 20 other people he does his own comics and presents them on stages as "videos" to his songs.

Dino Valente I believe also claims credit for writing the mid/late-Sixties standard Hey Joe, a heavily contested subject for sure!

Jeez. Bob F. scared me.

On impulse I bought the "Yardbirds' Greatest Hits Vol. 1" CD tonight. Bought it mostly for "Smokestack Lightning" and "Train Kept a Rollin'" (take THAT, Aerosmith!) but "Mister You're a Better Man than I" is an amazing song that I'd somehow completely forgotten.

The Yardbirds - in my book they were, along with the Beatles and the Stones, amongst the most innovative groups on this side of the pond during the mid 60s. I've got a fairly recent two CD set entitled 'The Ultimate Collection' that carries all the early singles as well as eight outstanding live tracks. It's on 'Recall/Snapper' - as of course is 'The Forever Changes Concert'. The highly informative liner notes are signed off, rather comically by one 'Hugh G Rection'. My other Yardbirds CD is 'The BBC Sessions' on the German prog label'Repertoire'. I do not believe that I have ever heard better live in the studio material from anyone.

Yes Rocker, 'Shapes' is a truly great track. It was 'Heart Full of Soul' that really blue me away. I know that some fans (as well as the departing Eric Clapton) were disappointed when the group's management decided to embrace the more commercial songs of Graham Gouldman (later of 10CC and also writer of some finely crafted compositions for the Hollies). But in live performance, the Yardbirds always remained faithful to their blues based material - and in the process of course changed beyond recognition. Who was that other group they evolved into......Airship?.....Hindenburg something?......can't remember!
