Blood Sweat & Tears - Blood, Sweat & Tears [LP] (180 Gram, gatefold, limited)
180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso!
1969 Grammy Album of the Year!
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 1968, BS&T’s lead vocalist Al Kooper left and David Clayton-Thomas entered this stellar group of jazz and rock musicians, bringing a handful of new songs as they banged out their first major chart single with You’ve Made Me So Very Happy. The sound was new and exciting, the voice was thrilling, the horns meshed with rock and roll, fusing a brand new vibe, and the Blood, Sweat & Tears LP soared to the number one spot. It also received a Grammy for Album Of The Year in 1969.
This masterpiece smash included enough traction to be called a greatest hits album in its own right. Especially when you get two more hit singles with Spinning Wheel (Grammy Award winner) and Laura Nyro’s And When I Die. These radio and fan favorites graced the airwaves on the ever growing FM radio format and helped bolster even further the rest of the BS&T album with follow-up hits like the soulful tour de force of God Bless the Child, Traffic’s Smiling Phases and of course Steve Katz’s brilliant Sometimes in Winter. All in all, making this self-titled second album one of the most revered in their long-lasting and huge catalog of classic recordings.
Friday Music proudly announces another fine installment in The Blood, Sweat & Tears/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their second legendary masterpiece Blood, Sweat & Tears.
