All-Analog Mastering by Kevin Gray & Robert Pincus from Hi-Resolution Digital Files Transferred from the Original Master Tapes
Featuring Newly Designed Deluxe "Book" Packaging with Four Bonus Tracks, Rare Photos and Notes
The Al Kooper-helmed Blood, Sweat & Tears created the often imitated but never duplicated '60s big horn, big city rock sound. The band's 1968 debut, Child Is Father To The Man, was their lone release with the celebrated singer/keyboardist and it stands as Blood, Sweat & Tears' most enduring collection. The inventive and soulful set is also the group's only album to earn a place on Rolling Stone's prestigious '500 Greatest Albums of All-Time' list, coming in at #266.
Produced by John Simon, the diverse 12-song set features such accomplished Kooper compositions as “I Can’t Quit Her,” “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” “House in the Country” and “The Modern Adventures of Plato, Diogenes and Freud,” along with excellent takes on Tim Buckley’s “Morning Glory,” Harry Nilsson’s “Without Her” and Randy Newman’s “Just One Smile.”
Impex Records latest release in a long line of quality digital audio reissues features all-analog mastering by Kevin Gray and Robert Pincus captured meticulously from hi-resolution digital files transferred from the original master tapes, and includes four bonus tracks from the Columbia archives. This is as close as you'll ever get to Kooper and Co's singular vision!
The 24K Gold CD release of Blood, Sweat & Tears Child Is Father To The Man comes housed in newly designed deluxe "book" packaging with rare photos and notes. Package also includes US barcode and unique gold foil stamping.
