It is really difficult to pinpoint which version of CS 9720 I have. The record itself has the yellow Columbia lettering on the label. But it also has Matrix / Runout (Side A runout stamped(Variant 1)): XSM137878-1AA with a hand etched 2 (but no S) after the 1AA. Also has Matrix / Runout (Side B runout stamped & etched (Variant 2)): XSM137879-1AJ F 5 without the F 5. Maybe I am blind but the only place I can find Pitman or Santa Maria or Terre Haute is on the inner paper sleeve which is a Columbia ad for Color Posters on one side and The Inner Sleeve, sort of a Columbia newspaper/blog thing on the other side. On the color poster side it says Poster/Puzzle offer PO Box 5289 Terre Haute,Ind. 47805

One of the great, great efforts of the period. The musicianship is as tight as it gets, and the overall concept is ground breaking.Play both sides and reacquaint yourself with this album, you'll be glad you did. - T.Curley

I found this collection "artsy-fartsy" and it ushered in, along with the group Chicago, a distinctly unhip fusion of jazz horns mixed with what is supposed to be rock and roll or pop or whatever. There is a datedness to Blood, Sweat and Tears and Chicago. (With Chicago, it's not only datedness but dorkiness.)
Obviously, Clayton-Thomas had stronger vocals than Al Kooper (who established B,S and T, and was their first lead singer), but the man always sounds constipated.
"You've Made Me So Very Happy", "Spinning Wheel" are overplayed as much as "Saturday In the Park" by Chicago. It is cretinous ear candy, for all of its artistic pretentions. I don't need to hear ANY of the Chicago catalog, it's all so much drivel. And the best thing Blood, Sweat and Tears ever did was "I Can't Quit Her" from the band's first lp, replete with the weak vocals of Al Kooper.
What is it with these white boys playing horns? They sound like John Philips Sousa. These clowns need some lessons from the blowers at Stax. Sheeeeeeesh....
