original release year
David Clayton-Thomas landed in New York City in 1966, and shortly after got a gig playing guitar for John Lee Hooker. It was in the funky clubs of Greenwich Village that he met several founding members of what would become the chart-dominating jazz fusion band Blood, Sweat & Tears. Clayton-Thomas joined the band in 1969, bringing a handful of new songs as they delivered the monumental 1970 Grammy Album of the Year Blood, Sweat & Tears.
Bloodlines, from Analogue Productions, captures the BS&T sound as never before on four remastered LPs — Child Is Father To The Man, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Blood, Sweat & Tears 3 and B, S & T 4. Each album was remastered from the original master tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, and each was plated and pressed on deluxe 200-gram heavyweight vinyl at QRP. This special box set also includes an essay by Clayton-Thomas detailing the origins and history of BS&T.
Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.
If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.
Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.
