Blood, Sweat & Tears' Greatest Hits [Remastered]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This disc is no substitute for the Mastersounds version of the Child Is Father to the Man album, or the Mobile Fidelity version of Blood, Sweat and Tears, but it is a really smart idea. Columbia-Legacy went back and recompiled this multi-million selling album previously available as a fairly lackluster 40-minute, 11-song CD, adding two songs "So Long Dixie" and "More and More," that were previously available only on singles from 1972 and 1968, respectively, and upgrading the sound. What distinguishes Blood, Sweat & Tears' Greatest Hits from the double-CD Sony-Legacy compilation What Goes Up: The Best of Blood, Sweat & Tears, however, is that this disc uses the single...

What distinguishes Blood, Sweat & Tears' Greatest Hits from the double-CD Sony-Legacy compilation What Goes Up: The Best of Blood, Sweat & Tears, however, is that this disc uses the single edits of the hits. To serious fans, it's sort of Blood, Sweat & Tears-lite, but to millions of listeners, it's these shorter versions, shorn of their extended album-version breaks, by which they know the band best. And those numbers now sport state-of-the-art sound -- hard, up-front bass and drums, horns that pour out of the speakers, and close and intimate singing from David Clayton-Thomas or, on the two BS&T Mark 1 tracks here, Al Kooper and Steve Katz. The new release also re-creates the packaging of the original LP, with reviewers' quotes across the band's prime years 1968-72 and a time line history, as well as release and production information on each song. The two additional numbers bring the running time up to 48 minutes, and it's mid-priced, too, which makes it even easier to junk the old version and get hold of this one.

    Wonderful Retrospective

    This CD is very good over view of the Blood Sweat & Tears music. I enjoyed reliving the jazz fusion soulful sound of this music again. The song selection does a very good job of hitting the high spots of their career. The remastering was very well exicuted. The horn section that this band was so well known for is crystal clear on this recording. I would recomend it to any fan of this band or similar bands such as Chicago.

    What a RIP-OFF !!!!

    Does the term "Re mastered always mean they "TRASH"the original Music ? There are so many songs that are "Cut-up" on this recording...I can't even listen to it ! There should be a "WARNING"on it,so you don't waste your money
