Overview

Blood, Sweat & Tears are no strangers to oldies radio but even so, they only have a handful singles in constant rotation: "You've Made Me So Very Happy," "Spinning Wheel," "And When I Die," and maybe "Hi-De-Ho." "You're the One," a Top 10 Adult Contemporary single from 1976, is rarely heard and that's just one of many songs released on the A- and B-sides of singles released between 1968 and 1976, all of which are compiled on Real Gone's 2014 double-disc set The Complete Columbia Singles. It's well-known that Blood, Sweat & Tears started out as an adventurous jazz-rock outfit headlined by Al Kooper, but it's less well known that the group was quite noodly toward the end, especially during the handful of years when vocalist David Clayton-Thomas was away pursuing a solo career. This is the music that comprises the second disc of this set and the odd thing is, even the A-sides during this time reflect how the group would continue to drift on their jazz odyssey. Fans of the oldies staples are unlikely to find this appealing, but adding these latter-day singles, along with some of the wilder earlier moments, turns The Complete Columbia Singles into something rare and needed in the BST discography: a full portrait of the group's heyday, from start to finish.
