The group showed promise on the first album of rock radio friendly tunes, featuring Jeff Beck. “Back Where I Started” was in the top ten in the U.S. and the album was a featured number one on college campusese. Plans were made for a U.S. tour, but it is alleged that Samwell-Smith, Dreja, and McCarty nixed the idea of the tour, much to John Fiddler’s dismay. Jeff Beck, who along with Dzal Martin was considered as the lead guitarist for such a tour, was reportedly disgusted at his ex-bandmates’ refusal to tour America. He took no part on the second album, and Fiddler barely chose to do so before walking out. “Asylum” is one of the few songs Fiddler sang on, and was the only one featuring Page.
The track Back Where I Started is regularly included in the set-list of the revived Yardbirds.
