Blood, Sweat & Tears are truly a worldwide gift to rock and jazz fusion enthusiasts everywhere. Over four decades in the music business and still going strong, their hit albums and top charting singles continue to captivate millions of fans all over the globe.
In 1969, BS&T’s lead vocalist David Clayton-Thomas entered this stellar group of jazz and rock musicians, bringing a handful of new songs as they delivered the monumental Grammy Album of the Year with Blood, Sweat & Tears.
BS&T’s sound was new and exciting, the songs were thrilling, their horns meshed with rock and roll, fusing a brand new vibe, which continued successfully on their third amazing album Blood, Sweat & Tears 3. Featuring a treasure trove of smash hit singles and FM radio deep track favorites, the LP soared to the number one spot.
This masterwork smash included enough traction to be called a greatest hits album in its own right. Especially when you get 2 more hit singles with the Carole King favorite Hi De Ho and the David Clayton-Thomas rocker Lucretia MacEvil. These radio and fan favorites graced the airwaves for the better part of a year and helped bolster even further the rest of the BS&T album with follow-up hits like the soulful tour de force of James Taylor’s Fire and Rain, another smash Traffic revisit with 40,000 Headmen and of course Steve Katz and Dick Halligan’s brilliant The Battle. All in all, making their third album one of the most revered in their long-lasting and huge BS&T catalog of classic recordings.
