The Yardbirds – Evil Hearted You / 1965

Yardbirds - Evil Hearted You

Released and promoted as a double A side, “Still I’m Sad” appears to be the side most remember and prefer. And it was an extraordinary song too with the band creating a gloomy sounding Gregorian chant – with help from manager/producer Giorgio Gomelsky providing the lower bass notes. There was quite simply no pop single like this before.

“Evil Hearted You” is much lighter by contrast though a mid paced moody rocker with a nice compact Jeff Beck solo. The Yardbirds were showing the way forward and what could be done with the 45 single.
