Herbie Hancock performs through the courtesy of Blue Note Records, Inc. The Yardbirds perform through the courtesy of Epic Records, Inc. Catalog# on front cover: E-4447 ST Catalog# on back cover: E/SE-4447 ST According to Wikipedia: The album features performances by Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Newman, Phil Woods, Joe Henderson, Jim Hall, Ron Carter, and Jack DeJohnette. Although Jimmy Smith is credited with playing organ on the album some sources claim it was Paul Griffin that was present at the recording sessions. The album also includes "Stroll On", a rewrite of Tiny Bradshaw's "Train Kept A-Rollin'", by the Yardbirds featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. The liner notes to a 2000s CD release indicate that Hancock first recorded his score in London with British musicians, but rejected the results and re-recorded the music in New York with American jazz musicians. The bassline to "Bring Down the Birds" was sampled by Deee-Lite for their 1990 single "Groove is in the Heart."[3] A mono mix of this album (MGM E4447ST) features slightly longer versions of several songs.
