Released on this day in 1968. “Blood, Sweat & Tears” is the 2nd album from Sweat & Tears. It was a huge commercial success, rising to the top of the US charts for a collective 7 weeks and yielding 3 successive Top 5 singles. It received a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1970. Bandleader Al Kooper and 2 other members, Randy Brecker and Jerry Weiss, had left Blood, Sweat & Tears after their 1st album. Bobby Colomby and Steve Katz searched for a replacement singer and selected David Clayton-Thomas. Three more musicians joined to bring the band to 9 members. Columbia Records assigned James William Guercio (who was simultaneously working with new band Chicago) to produce a new album. This one brings back some great childhood memories, as I recall my parents playing this one often. “Smiling Phases,” (written by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood,) “Spinning Wheel,” “And When I Die,” (written by Laura Nyro,) “God Bless the Child,” and “You've Made Me So Very Happy” (Barry Gordy,) we’re all hits. #bloodsweatandtears #whenidie #spinningwheel

Best Albums of 2019:
5. Opeth - In Cauda Venenum
My favorite band is probably Opeth. I’ve been listening to them for 18 years now which is half my life. Sure, there are bands out there I’ve listened to longer, but Opeth is never far from my ears. A new Opeth album is always cause for excitement and anticipation. A lot of people really don’t like what Opeth have become over the last decade, but I love it. Their albums up through 2008 are all incredible albums and they get revisited regularly. But these newer prog oriented albums are so good. It’s been like falling in love with the band all over again. Albums like Still Life, Blackwater Park, and Ghost Reveries are as good as it gets. This year’s In Cauda Venenum stands alongside all three of those albums as some of the best music the band have done. I could stop writing right now and that statement alone should sum up just how good of an album this is. The album was released in both English and Swedish. I think everyone has their favorite version of the record, and mine is definitely the Swedish version so I’ll use those titles: Svekets prins is a killer album opener. Hjärtat vet vad handen gör wouldn’t sound out of place on any of their metal albums. Minnets yta and Allting tar slut are some of the best songs Mikael Åkerfeldt has ever written. But my favorite track is the unexpected jazzy tune Banemannen. Åkerfeldt has never sounded better and more at home in his delivery than he does here while guitarist Fredrik Åkesson plays some of the strongest leads he’s ever done. It’s hard to separate the albums out when we get this close to the top. I did consider this for the top spot and if you ask me this time next year I might reconsider it. But it ends up here, and that’s not a knock. This album is a masterpiece and it’s good to see Åkerfeldt and company firing on all cylinders once again. •••

Beautiful album. Beautiful soul. His rendition of “Hallelujah” pretty much blows away any other version. Too bad he died so young, we will never know what could have been. Thank you Vinyl Me, Please for a proper repress.
