Music Review: Blood Sweat and Tears: Greatest Hits (1972)
Blood Sweat and Tears made some beautiful music.  The organ accompaniment to "You've Made Me So Very Happy" resulted in a classic jazz rock fusion song which is their trade mark.  They also add brass instruments into their music to further the jazz-rock fusion.  "Hi De Ho (That Old Sweet Roll)" is a good example of this combination.  "And When I Die" is an uptempo song which really gets the blood moving.  "Spinning Wheel" is the class of this album.  This is one of those songs I find myself singing for no reason.
What goes up must come down
spinning wheel got to go round
Talking about your troubles it's a crying sin
Ride a painted pony
Let the spinning wheel spin

You got no money, and you, you got no home
Spinning wheel, spinning all alone
Talking about your troubles and you, you never learn
Ride a painted pony
let the spinning wheel turn
"I Love You More Than You'll Know" features guitar playing with some crazy riffs.  It also has a saxophone solo that is nice.
