BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS <br> 4 (orignal trifold jacket) <br> 1971 (Columbia Records)

Details: Columbia KC 30590, stereo, red label with orange print, tri-fold gatefold cover, 1971

Condition: Vinyl VG++ (very clean) & Jacket VG (some minor soiling from age on front cover as can be seen in scan, but the binding is tight and the overall condition very clean and good)

This release of the classic BS&T LP has the original tri-fold cover, which opens up into a very large inner photo of the band. In this unusual design, the LP comes out through the spine end of the jacket.

From the All Music Guide:
Having relied largely on outside songwriting for its last two wildly successful albums, Blood, Sweat & Tears decided (as many groups had before) to bring some of that song publishing income into the family by writing their own material. Singer David Clayton-Thomas contributed the Top 40 hit "Go Down Gamblin'," and he and keyboard player Dick Halligan collaborated on another chart entry, "Lisa, Listen To Me." Ex-bandleader Al Kooper even contributed a track, "John The Baptist (Holy John)." Although the album scraped the Top 10 briefly and went gold, it marked the end of BS&T's period of wide commercial success on records. By the next outing, Clayton-Thomas had quit and the band's heyday was behind it.

The tracks are:
1 Go Down Gamblin' 4:15
2 Cowboys and Indians 3:09
3 John the Baptist (Holy John) 3:35
4 Redemption 5:13
5 Lisa, Listen to Me 2:58
6 A Look to My Heart [instrumental] :53
7 High on a Mountain 3:15
8 Valentine's Day 3:57
9 Take Me in Your Arms (Rock Me a Little While) 3:28
10 For My Lady 3:25
11 Mama Gets High 4:10
12 A Look to My Heart [Duet, Instrumental] 2:08

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all of the LPs we are offering are used. Our grading system for each LP is strictly visual, as we don't have time to listen to each record from beginning to end. Unless otherwise stated, there is usually a small price sticker affixed somewhere on the back cover.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
