The Yardbirds: 'Shapes of Things' (1966)

Audio only

7”, Columbia #DB–7848, UK, 25 February 1966.

“Shapes of things before my eyes,
just teach me to despise.
Will time make men more wise?
Here within my lonely frame,
my eyes just hurt my brain.
But will it seem the same?

Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, may be a soldier.
Come tomorrow, may I be bolder than today?

Now the trees are almost green.
But will they still be seen?
When time and tide have been.
Fall into your passing hands.
Please don’t destroy these lands.
Don’t make them desert sands.

Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, may be a soldier.
Come tomorrow, may I be bolder than today?

Soon I hope that I will find,
thoughts deep within my mind
That won’t disgrace my kind.”

"I didn’t want to just be posed there, because we were a band that moved. So I got the other guys on the floor all huddled together, and I decided that I’d jump up over them like Evel Knievel going over the fountain at Caesars — and just like Evel, I crashed down on Scottie  and went face first into the cement floor. Scottie was always cool about those things, ‘cause I crashed into him a lot over the years. So I went to the hospital to get stitched up and came back the next day."

I’m home from work today so this album is being listened to on a weekday morning in my pj’s with coffee and oatmeal. Before I dropped Alex off at the train this morning he asked me if I was going to do a review, and when I said yes he said, “Rats Revenge!” and then ran out of the car.
