The difference between Blood, Sweat & Tears and the group's preceding long-player, Child Is Father to the Man, is the difference between a monumental seller and a record that was "merely" a huge critical success. Arguably, the Blood, Sweat & Tears that made this self-titled second album -- consisting of five of the eight original members and four newcomers, including singer David Clayton-Thomas -- was really a different group from the one that made Child Is Father to the Man, which was done largely under the direction of singer/songwriter/keyboard player/arranger Al Kooper. They had certain similarities to the original: the musical mixture of classical, jazz, and rock elements was still apparent, and the interplay between the horns and the keyboards was still occurring, even if those instruments were being played by different people. Kooper was even still present as an arranger on two tracks, notably the initial hit "You've Made Me So Very Happy." But the second BS&T, under the aegis of producer James William Guercio, was a less adventurous unit, and, as fronted by Clayton-Thomas, a far more commercial one. Not only did the album contain three songs that neared the top of the charts as singles -- "Happy," "Spinning Wheel," and "And When I Die" -- but the whole album, including an arrangement of "God Bless the Child" and the radical rewrite of Traffic's "Smiling Phases," was wonderfully accessible. It was a repertoire to build a career on, and Blood, Sweat & Tears did exactly that, although they never came close to equaling this album. © William Ruhlmann & Bruce Eder /TiVo

Child Is Father to the Man, premier album de Blood Sweat & Tears, est la meilleure production des New-Yorkais, et sans nul doute l’un des sommets de l’œuvre du pianiste, organiste, compositeur et chanteur Al Kooper. A la fois nourri de l’empreinte d’un album des Beatles (Sgt. Pepper's), et de son passé au sein du groupe de blues-rock psychédélique The Blues Project, Kooper, manifestement ravi des moyens mis à sa disposition, ajoute partitions pour cordes et cuivres à ses mélodies, éléments de jazz et de musique baroque, dans l’élaboration de ce que l’on pensait constituer à l’époque, et en toute conviction, une nouvelle forme d’expression musicale. Le choix des reprises (un chanson de Tim Buckley, le « So Much Love » de Carole King, ou un « Without Her » signé de l’étincelante plume de Nilsson) est judicieux, et – encore mieux – respectueux des intentions initiales des compositeurs. Le tout est servi par des instrumentistes émérites (le pianiste Fred Lipsius, ou le guitariste Steve Katz), s’effaçant derrière le projet collectif. C’est en particulier la première fois dans l’univers, finalement assez traditionnel, du rock, qu’on utilise une section de cuivres avec une aussi évidente, et pertinente, sophistication. Dans quelques mois, les egos surdimensionnés des uns et des autres commenceront à gangrener le groupe, Al Kooper s’enfuira ventre à terre, et Blood, Sweat & Tears vendra des disques par conteneurs entiers. Mais, pour l’heure, Child Is Father to the Man se niche avec volupté dans le Top 50 des charts américains de musique pop. © ©Copyright Music Story Christian Larrède 2015

Pop/Rock - Paru le 1 février 1972 | Columbia - Legacy

Sometimes, a greatest-hits set is timed perfectly to gather together a group's most successful and familiar performances just at the point when that group has passed the point of their maximum exposure to the public, but before the public memory has had a chance to fade. That was the case when Columbia Records assembled this compilation for release in early 1972. At that point, Blood, Sweat & Tears had released four albums and scored six Top 40 hits, each of which is heard here. But lead singer David Clayton-Thomas had just quit the group, so that the unit that recorded songs like "You've Made Me So Very Happy" was not working together anymore. And even when Clayton-Thomas returned, the band would continue to decline commercially. As such, BS&T's Greatest Hits captures the band's peak in 11 selections--seven singles chart entries, plus two album tracks from the celebrated debut album when Al Kooper helmed the group, and two more from the Grammy-winning multi-platinum second album. Using the short singles edits of songs like "And When I Die" emphasizes their radio-ready punch over the more extended suitelike arrangements on the albums, but this selection gains in focus what it lacks in ambition. For the millions who learned to love BS&T in 1969 when they were all over AM radio, this is the ideal selection of their most accessible material. (A later CD reissue of Blood, Sweat & Tears' Greatest Hits replaced each singles edit with the original full-length version.) © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

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-and-a-half-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, and otherwise the bloated running time was filled out by, for example, four tracks from the 1972 stiff New Blood, which didn't even feature singer David Clayton-Thomas. 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. This compilation did not enhance the band's reputation. And the error-filled liner notes are less than worthless. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo
