At the beginning of 1969, the psychedelic movement was dying down. The social turmoil of the previous year was already seeming to hint that not all was fine and dandy with the situation at hand. While some bands took the time out to address the upheaval, a few barely bothered to acknowledge it and instead just made some great experimental music typical of the time. Blood, Sweat & Tears was one of these bands. After firing Al Kooper, who had virtually founded the band himself, the remaining members recruited vocalist David Clayton-Thomas, and a totally different dynamic was taken for their self-titled second album. Horns were used throughout CHILD IS FATHER TO THE MAN, no doubt, but they weren't the primary focus, that being Al Kooper's organ. This time around, the horn section is used almost on the level a lead guitar would be used in a regular rock band. And the material they use is equally mind-blowing. Not afraid to cover the most unusual sources, BS&T manage to take... Read more
I picked this up recently along with some other CDs from a bargain bin at one of my favorite record stores. I hadn't listened to Blood, Sweat and Tears in years, I remembered them as a very decent horn-based band but had never been a real big fan. Then I put the CD in the changer.
Oh my lord, how much greater this sounds today than when I was a teen! From the classical "Variations on a Theme" to all the great songs sandwiched between the two takes on that, I was in heaven. BS & T's top 40 songs are some of the few top 40 songs I will listen to, but it is the incredibly suave rendition of God Bless The Child that catapults this band to greatness and makes the CD a must-have.
Singer David Clayton-Thomas was one of the best of his day, and its really too bad that he and his band did not stick around long enough to produce more gems but instead drifted into undeserved obscurity.
Blood, Sweat and Tears was a good album when it was first issued but with its... Read more
This is a rare remastering failure from Columbia/Legacy.

The overall gain of the recording has been raised to the point where the background hiss of the original master tape is far too audible. As a result, the cymbals and horns are also annoyingly harsh and sibilant.

This recording is a masterwork which deserves better. For those who wish to hear this work in proper form, seek out the Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs version. Now that MFSL has re-emerged from bankruptcy, that title is now commercially available again at the original reasonable retail price, right here on Amazon.

I am not an advocate of buying only MFSL titles vs. recently remastered CD's available from the record companies. I have A-B'd dozens of older MFSL titles, most which were mastered in the 80's or mid-90's, against remasters produced in the last five years. In almost all cases, IMHO, the advances of remastering technology in the past five years supercedes much of the older MFSL... Read more
