Blood, Sweat & Tears is not the first band to ever use a horn section, but they are the first to fuse it with rock, jazz, and some blues thrown in for good measure. From the first ensemble in the late sixties practicing in a loft on Bleeker Street in New York's Greenwich Village and having crowds clapping on the street below between songs, founding member and drummer Bobby Colomby knew they were on the right course. Since then, the band has never stopped touring for over 50 years.
This Greatest Hits compilation album includes all of the group's best-known material up to 1972. They already had released four albums and scores six Top 40 hits, so it was the right moment to bring all their best hits together. The album includes »And When I Die«, »You've Made Me So Very Happy«, »Spinning Wheel« and many more classics.
»Somit liefert Greatest Hits einen
klasse Querschnitt durch die erfolgreichste
Zeit der kanadisch-amerikanischen Jazz-
Rock-Band, der trotz seines Alters immer
noch gültig ist!« (Good Times, Dezember 2019 / Januar 2020)
