Blood, Sweat & Tears, Child is Father to the Man

Creepy cover. Crazy, ambitious, cross-genre music from 1968. This isn’t the Blood, Sweat & Tears formation that made them a gold record-selling phenomenon, but this is where Al Kooper made his indelible mark on rock history. It also helped show what was possible if you did enough acid, I guess. Not sure whether it was drug-induced, but it sure sounds experimental. Contains several stellar, little-known hybrid rock gems, such as: “I Can’t Quit Her,” “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” and “Somethin’ Goin’ On.”
