------------------------

"Heart Full of Soul" is a 1965 single by the English rock band The Yardbirds.
It was written by Graham Gouldman, who later had a lengthy career as a member of 10cc. It charted in the United States at number nine and at number two in the United Kingdom.
The song makes an early use of the fuzz box by guitarist Jeff Beck during the guitar solo.
Originally, a sitar was going to be used, in keeping with the "Eastern-exotic" atmosphere of the song, but the sound was too thin, and eventually Beck produced a sitar-like effect on the guitar.
An outtake exists, with the sitar part intact.

In one way or another, all three of The Yardbirds' key guitarists were involved with "Heart Full Of Soul".
Although it is Beck that plays on the song, the US single was released with a picture sleeve erroneously showing the Eric Clapton line-up.
A March 1968 appearance on the music show Upbeat featured the final line-up with Jimmy Page miming to the record.

"Heart Full of Soul" appears on the 1965 compilation album Having a Rave Up.
It was featured heavily in the 2010 film London Boulevard.

Other recorded versions

Mexican band Los Freddy's, covered the song in Spanish with the title "Tengo Un Corazon" on their album Sufriras Sin Mi (You'll Suffer Without Me) (1966).
Joshua covered the song on their 1985 album, Surrender.
Box of Frogs, featuring Roger Chapman, covered the song on the Album Strange Land (1986).
Chris Isaak covered the song on his self-titled album Chris Isaak (1986) and the Wicked Game compilation album (1991).
Heavy metal band Dokken covered the song on their album, Long Way Home (2002).
Graham Gouldman covered the song he wrote for the Yardbirds for his solo album And Another Thing... (2000).
Rush covered the song on their EP Feedback (2004), and later on their R30 Tour.
Venerea covered the song on their album Shake Your Swollen Booty (2003).
Ghost Dance released their cover as their second single.
Paul Gilbert covered the song on Jeffology: A Guitar Chronicle (1995).
