Blood, Sweat & Tears: 3 & 4

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This U.K. reissue combines the group's third and fourth albums onto one CD, with better sound than Columbia's own domestic CD releases of the two albums. The new notes by Alan Robinson put Blood, Sweat & Tears: 3 & 4 in context with the band's larger history, and go a long way to explaining what went wrong for the group coming off of their immensely popular second album. Between that perspective and the near-optimum presentation of the musical content, this release may be the best way to approach these two albums, in terms of distilling down the best parts of both as a listening experience.

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
From their beginnings as an attempt at bold jazz-rock fusion in 1967 through a run as a high-powered R&B/soul-rock singles act with singer David Clayton-Thomas two years later, Blood, Sweat & Tears were always a kind of fascinating experiment, and a commercially successful one at that. The first album from the Clayton-Thomas-fronted band appeared in 1969, spawned four high chart hits, won a Grammy as Album of the Year, and went on to sell some three million units. This set picks up the aftermath, combining the band's next two albums, Blood, Sweat & Tears 3 and 4, in a single package. There are still hits here, but the band is obviously and gradually running out of creative steam at this point, and when Clayton-Thomas left the group after the fourth album, well, that was the end of the line commercially for Blood, Sweat & Tears, a band that, looking back, was pretty darn good.
