There are few groups whose output shows as steep and steady decline in quality as Blood Sweat and Tears. Their first album, when they were effectively Al Kooper's baby, was great, but didn't sell well. Kooper then left and they made a very good, more commercial and less demanding album made them stars. From that point forward, things got steadily worse. Subsequent albums were quite spotty, with an increasing amount of group-written weak material (outside of Al Kooper's contributions, the first two albums comprised mostly covers, albeit often strikingly well rearranged). All but hardcore fans can do without the albums after the first two, and even the hardcore would be hard pressed to get strongly behind the last two albums included in this box.

The low price tag is appealing, and the last three albums on this box do contain a few (though only a few) pretty decent songs. But it's hard to get too excited about putting this on your shelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars BST's heyday through to their hayday... 19 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Discs 1 & 2 are essential. The first disc sees Al Kooper at the controls and this record sounds remarkably fresh and innovative. Al Kooper's production skills and odd ball reworking of cover songs was at the time a very bold move. Al Kooper moved aside by Disc 2 widely regarded as BST's career high. There's nothing to dislike apart from the dreadful lines on Steve Katz's 'now you're gone girl and the lamp posts call out your name'... BST 3 is pretty good apart from the Sympathy for the Devil cover which is poor. BUT it does contain one of David Clayton Thomas's best vocal performances on 'Lonesome Suzie'.

4.0 out of 5 stars DAVID CLAYTON THOMAS 30 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
For me Blood Sweat and Tears never sound as good without the vocals of the great David Clayton THomas - he gives them a depth and musically they seem more confident and willing to experiment. I find Al Kooper's vocals thin and whiny in comparison and the first album does nothing for me. It could be a different band altogether. The final - New Blood is not too bad.

Overall a great set and a bargain price. Just wish that Nuclear Blues had been included instead of the two without David Clayton Thomas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memorable tracks 28 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some of these tracks are time less - if you like a classical/rock fusion - Peel played a lot of them -but there are many you won't have heard and maybe sound a little dated . Essential for you back collection all these sets are really good value
