“Horn bands” were scarce when in October 1968 their self-titled album launched Blood, Sweat & Tears into the music stratosphere, becoming the No. 1 album in the world.

An unorthodox mixture of rock, jazz and classically trained musicians — ranging from hardcore blues artists such as David Clayton-Thomas, to conservatory master’s graduates like Dick Halligan and Berklee-educated jazz musicians like Fred Lipsius, together with the powerful Broadway lead trumpet of Lew Soloff — defined the sound of the band in its groundbreaking years, 1968 through 1972.

“This was big city music, hard charging and fierce. When BS&T hit the stage, it was about as subtle as a punch in the solar plexus,” Clayton-Thomas remembers.

Bloodlines, a Hybrid Stereo 4 disc box set produced by Analogue Productions, packs a heavyweight wallop that’s a knockout for audiophiles! The legendary band’s first four studio albums have been remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound from the original analog master tapes. You get their self-titled second album with its three gold-selling Top 10 singles: “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” and “And When I Die” as well as BS&T’s iconic album debut: Child Is Father To The Man, their third album Blood, Sweat & Tears 3 and lastly, the Top 10 chart smash Blood, Sweat & Tears 4.
