Blood, Sweat & Tears

Blood, Sweat & Tears was formed by Al Kooper (ex-Blues Project member) as the first "official" Jazz/Rock band.

Kooper departed after the first record and with him any chance BS&T would be anything more than a second tier pop band. David Clayton-Thomas was installed as lead singer and he soon became the most recognizable aspect of BS&T.

"Child Is Father To The Man" with Al Kooper has none of BS&T's best remembered songs but it is their defining work and the only BS&T album that can withstand repeated listenings. For the hits "Blood Sweat and Tears" has 'em, with the MOR "You've Made Me So Very Happy," "Spinning Wheel" and the surprisingly cheerful "When I Die." Of course these and other "memorable" BS&T songs are on "The Best of Blood, Sweat and Tears: What Goes Up!"
