WILL THE 18 TRACK VERSION OF THE CHILD IS FATHER TO THE MAN BE RELEASED @ A REASONABLE PRICE ON CD ?
IT STILL SOUNDS DARING, FRESH & FULL OF JOY TODAY.
THE CHOICE OF COMPOSITIONS IS IMMACULATE.

A blend of Blues and Jazz and Pop expressed with great creativity. Al Kooper leads another cause to keep music more fun and less "work". A must for the Kooper fan.

I always enjoyed this first B, S and T effort better than anything they put out with David Clayton Thomas. They took a distinct "artsy fartsy" direction which I found stifling.
This first lp with Al Kooper is fun and irreverent. Apparently, Kooper was dumped because he wasn't considered much of a vocalist (he wasn't), but it was his idea to form this group, and his skills and exhuberance are apparent on this release.
As far as I'm concerned, "I Can't Quit Her" is this group's signature song. Virtually unknown for all these years, this should have been a monster hit for the group, but perhaps Columbia didn't know what they had here.
Even with such good material as Tim Buckley's "Morning Glory" and Nilsson's "Without Her", it's Kooper's own compositions that carry much of this album. Though lacking vocal range, his takes on blues, "Somethin' Goin' On" and "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" feature great arrangements and ironic humor. The Goffin-King composition, "So Much Love" is great pop. (Who did this song before???)
I've always had a problem with horns and rock and roll. When it's done right, it's great. When it's done wrong (later Blood, Sweat and Tears, Chicago), it sounds very unhip to me and pompous - something rock and roll should never be.
In short, this is the best Blood, Sweat and Tears album. It's a shame all they ever play on the radio is the lame "Spinning Wheel" and the terminally overplayed "You Made Me So Very Happy".
