Album Review

Blood, Sweat & Tears' 11-track Greatest Hits album, released in February 1972, contained all of the group's six Top 40 singles, plus notable tracks from its two best albums, Child Is Father to the Man and Blood, Sweat & Tears. Almost 24 years later came this 32-track, 138-plus-minute, double-CD expansion, much of it extraneous. Where Greatest Hits contained the single edits of songs like "You've Made Me So Very Happy" and "And When I Die," here "all titles are original album versions," as the back cover notes, which means the jazzy interludes, frequently having nothing to do with the rest of the song, remain. There are a couple of unreleased tracks. Legacy would have better served consumers by either expanding the original 41-minute Greatest Hits to proper CD length with a few bonus tracks, or reissuing the first two albums in a double-disc set, again with a few bonus tracks to fill up the time.

Customer Reviews


The above "Album Review" is for the self-titled Blood, Sweat & Tears album from February, 1969. Obviously, the CD here is actually a "Best Of" collection compiled in 1995! But this CD is a great overview of their Columbia label releases and DOES contain all the highlights mentioned in the above review. Every charting single and all the favorite album cuts are here, nothing's missing. This is the one to get!

But It Now

Blood Sweat and Tears is what you get when you put funk, jazz, rock, blues, a crazy horn section, and a bunch of soulful cats into a blender. If you don;t have this compilation in your collection... you're cheating yourslf. The album has some good jazz standards, some fast paced funk jams, and some classic AM radio sounding roc tunes. I love every song in this set.

No American rock group ever started with as much daring or musical promise as Blood, Sweat & Tears, or realized their potential more fully -- and then blew it all as quickly. From their origins as a jazz-rock experiment that wowed critics and listeners, they went on -- in a somewhat more pop vein -- to sell almost six million records in three years, but ended up being dropped by their record label four years after that. Blood, Sweat & Tears started as an idea conceived by Al Kooper in July of 1967....
