(March 7, 2016): Blood, Sweat and Tears – And When I Die

From the 1969 sophomore album, Blood, Sweat & Tears.  The tunes were recorded in 1968 as Al Kooper, Randy Brecker, and Jerry Weiss were departing. I assume that’s the reason the album is self-titled – a new start.  The LP won the Grammy award for best album in 1970.  This cover of the Laura Nyro song — written when she was 16 in 1966 (and first recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary in that year) — is one of three singles off the album to reach 1 or 2 in the charts.
