Blood, Sweat and Tears, The First Album, 1973 on Embassy (UK).

The debut album, titled Child Is Father To The Man, 1968 – was re-released in the UK and Europe 5 years later with this title and packaging, but the same recording.

Al Kooper, Steve Katz, Bobby Colomby, Jim Fielder, Dick Halligan, Fred Lipsius, Jerry Weiss, Randy Brecker.

Who doesn’t love an album with a track title like “The Modern Adventures of Plato, Diogenes, and Freud” that opens with a flute overture?
