Yardbirds “Stroll On” from Movie “Blow-Up”

The Yardbirds helped make the song a garage-rock staple when they covered it on the 1965 album Having a Rave Up. A live version recorded in 1968 was released on the 1971 album Live Yardbirds: Featuring Jimmy Page. The riff Jeff Beck used for their version of the song was later used in another song written by Beck and Keith Relf titled “Stroll On,” which was used in the movie Blow-Up. The published sheet music for the Yardbirds’ version is titled “Train Kept A Rollin’ (Stroll On)”, with credit given to Beck, Relf, Jimmy Page, Chris Dreja, and Jim McCarty. Despite the inclusion of “Stroll On” in the title, this sheet music appears to be the score for “Train Kept a Rollin'”.
