Child Is Father to the Man is the debut album by Blood, Sweat & Tears, released in February 1968. It reached number 47 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart in the United States. A teenaged Al Kooper went to a concert for jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson in 1960. Ferguson's performance served as the catalyst to start a rock band with a horn section. Originally in a band called The Blues Project, Kooper left after band leader Danny Kalb rejected his idea of bringing in a horn section
It's Kooper's bluesy songs, such as "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" and "I Can't Quit Her," and his singing that are the primary focus, but the album is an aural delight; listen to the way the bass guitar interacts with the horns on "My Days Are Numbered" or the charming arrangement and Steve Katz's vocal. on Tim Buckley's "Morning Glory. Then Kooper sings Harry Nilsson's "Without Her" over a delicate, jazzy backing with flügelhorn/alto saxophone interplay by Randy Brecker and Fred Lipsius

Comparison Release: Child is Father to the Man (SBM) Columbia/Legacy CK 64214. The first time I heard a compact disc was around 1986. At the time, this didn't mean anything to me. After all, the album came out three years before I was born, so I certainly don't recall when it was popular on the radio. Compared with how bad some early digital discs sounded, my dad made a pretty good choice. The original release sounded nice, especially compared with some of the other CD atrocities Columbia was spewing at the time. The SBM Mastersound Child is Father to the Man was an essential purchase. Yes, there was some improvement in sonics, making an already decent recording sound even better. But the real clincher was that an extra six tracks from the band's demo session, before John Simon was involved as producer.
The Album was NOT a hi. .producing no hit singles and only peaked in the 40's on the Billboard top 100 chart but it remains the ONLY Blood, Sweat and Tears album in the Rolling Stone Top 500 albums of all time. an album that will tug at your musical heartstrings. Pet Sounds in 66, Sgt Peppers in 67, and this disc, Child is Father to Man in 68. Historically they all tie together to the point of this disc becoming 264 on Rolling Stones 500 list.
