CD Reviews

Tears...of Joy!
R. Isherwood | Fort Collins, Colorado USA | 08/23/2005

"I have always felt that next to the the first album ("Child Is Father To The Man"), "No Sweat" is the best BS&T album.
Exceptional musicianship (Wadenius, Bargeron & Willis in particular) combined with quality material make this a must have.
This realease sounds wonderful and once again Wounded Bird has done an exceptional job with the sound of this CD.
Highly recommeded !"
The best of the Jerry Fisher albums, finally on CD!

"Thank goodness somebody finally saw the light of day and decided to release some of the later period B,S and T albums on CD! Wounded Bird Records has released no less than five of them, the last few recorded for the Columbia label, and all sound excellent to my ears! True, the band never was able to recapture the success of "You've Made Me So Very Happy" or "Spinning Wheel", but don't discount these albums either, as they all have something interesting to offer musically. They will no doubt make diehard fans of the band rejoice.

Personally, I am finally happy to have the Jerry Fisher era albums on CD. With the exception of New Blood, that was only previously available as a hard to find overseas import, none of these albums were ever available on CD before...and that's a shame. I am a particular fan of Jerry's voice, and always thought that it was a shame that none of his material with B,S and T ever hit it particularly big.

This album, No Sweat, is my favorite out of Jerry's work with the band. There's a really good mix of music on this...from a rocking version of Steve Winwood's Empty Pages...to the mellow and soulful My Old Lady...to the funky instrumental Inner Crisis, featuring a great guitar and voice solo from George Wadenius. Good stuff!

I recommend all of the Wounded Bird reissues whole heartedly! Hopefully somebody down the road will see the potential in releasing the Brand New Day album, thusly insuring B, S and T fans that their entire catalogue will finally find a lasting place in digital history."

"Possibly the best non David Clayton-Thomas record by BS&T. The band remade themselves after Clayton-Thomas left, and on this record they realized their potential. Fans old and new will recognize it as BS&T, but the rock is harder edged and the jazz is more contemporary with less homage to the big band era and more of a reference to funk. Georg Wadenius (guitar}, "Blue" Lou Marini (woodwinds], and Larry Willis (keyboards) are outstanding and worth the price of the CD."
