Notes by the uploader:
This is a recording of the Yardbirds in Santa Monica, CA. The source is a very low gen. cassette dub from Jan. 1986 which lists the recording date as 1968. However, I agree with this web page http://www.chromeoxide.com/yardbird.htm which says the actual date was July 22, 1967.
This is an audience recording. By modern standards it is terrible but keep in mind it's almost 40 years old. The main problem is the vocals are very low in the mix and distorted. Jimmy "Magic Fingers" Page comes through loud and clear, and the rhythm section is mostly audible. I slightly boosted the bass and cut the midrange with my trusty old 12 band equalizer, and tinkered with levels in Cool Edit Pro 2.1.
