AllMusic Review by

If it has horns and David Clayton Thomas is the lead singer, does that make it Blood, Sweat & Tears? That's the question posed on this 1980 concert set, in which Thomas fronts a set of young musicians, none of whom played on any of the band's hit albums.

Whatever you call them, though, there's been a major change in direction. This edition of BS&T is for all intents a fusion jazz band; in fact, the bulk of the album, the "Spanish Wine" suite, is an extended piece that inhabits a musical neighborhood somewhere near Weather Report. Old fans will be pleased to learn that there's also an enthusiastic medley of the band's best known songs, and later Thomas makes a return to his blues roots on an impassioned reading of "I'll Drown in My Own Tears."
