Blood Sweat & Tears: Complete Columbia Singles
Label: REAL GONE MUSIC
Blood Sweat And Tears
2014 two CD collection from the pioneering - and hit making - Jazz Rock outfit. This set offers not only the most comprehensive collection ever compiled of their work, but also the most appropriate lens through which to view their long and often chaotic career. Yet, through it all, Blood, Sweat & Tears maintained a remarkably high level of musicianship and material throughout their stint with the label, and their innovative use of jazzy horn arrangements in a Rock context paved the way for such bands as Chicago, Cold Blood, Chase and If. Along the way, they also integrated elements of Psychedelia, R&B, Folk and Classical music into their Jazz Rock framework to produce an eclectic mix of recordings unlike that of any other band of the era. Blood, Sweat & Tears: The Complete Columbia Singles follows the band through every phase and configuration, and features five single versions/mixes making their first appearance on CD.
