5.0 out of 5 stars What a great recording, 9 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Blood Sweat and Tears (Audio CD)
For me this was a real discovery, because I wasn't really listening to B, S & T back then, although I certainly recognised their major hit "Spinning Wheel", which is included in this absolutely wonderful album. Starting of with French composer Eric Satie's "Gymnopédies", first introduced very much as written from the composers hand, but then `twisted' in a nice and imaginary way, with some great writing for horns, and I guess this is the key point to this album; they take other peoples compositions and make them into their own, in a very personal and imaginary way.

To me there is no doubt; this is one of their finest moment, the most inspiring and soulful outlet of them all. This is also the first album with singer David Clayton-Thomas and what a singer.

The only little thing that I can criticize is the second last track called Blues-part 2. Is has a great and very interesting organ intro, which builds up to a climax where horns finally enter, but then right away cuts into a drum/bass groove, which is a bit of an anticlimax, and the rest of this song is virtually different ideas spliced together, contra a homogeneous composition.

But that cannot take anything away from this album as a whole, which is just full of great songs arranged in such an irresistible way. Check this out!
