B S & T 3

While I agree with a lot about the reviews already written I must add some food for thought. The band has gone through many changes over the years. To this humble listener this album represents the culmination of their best arrangements and musicians.
The energy and vocal stylings of David Clayton Thomas reached it's pinnacle. I can still sing the horn breaks in songs like Hi De Ho to this day. Fred Lipsius's alto solos and especially his piano solo in He's a Runner are superb. (makes me wonder who Donald Fagen was listening to) Their arrangement of Robbie Robertson's Lonesome Susie brings it together. The subtle horn intro with David's voice that crescendos to an unbelievable middle and then fades quietly away when he says "What else can I do". It'll make you cry. I would love this particular version of B S & T to get together for one more CD.

I can't rank BST&'s first few albums against each other while I remember the music scene at the time. (Top 40 was king, progressive rock in its infancy as the Marconi Experiment at WMMR).

There was nothing comparable available.

I was so astounded by the first track I heard (possibly via the Marconi Experiment) that this became the first album I purchased in June 1970. Thus, To this ear, none of the other groups' renditions come close matching these, possibly because I didn't hear them until long after.
