In the spring of 1969 "You've Made Me So Very Happy" surged to #2 Billboard Pop Hot 100/#18 Adult Contemporary (AC)/#46 R&B, clearly grabbing the attention of audiences across the radio dial. The band's follow-up, "Spinning Wheel," reached # 1 AC/# 2 Hot 100/# 45 R&B in the early summer and they closed out the year with Laura Nyro's classic, "And When I Die" becoming BS&T's third straight #2 Hot 100 hit.
The band introduced a new style of rock and roll, a jazz-rock fusion defined by exquisite musicianship, hot blasts of big brass horns and David Clayton-Thomas's aggressive blue-eyed soul delivery, Blood, Sweat & Tears Greatest Hits captures all the important songs in their elegant glory.
For the millions who learned to love BS&T in 1969 when they were all over AM radio, this is the ideal collection of their most accessible material. As an added bonus, this Audio Fidelity release includes all the extended singles and full-length album versions taken from the original stereo masters.
