Blood, Sweat and Tears: A good

thing gone

bad'li

f University of Michigan School of Music
Presents
1969-1970
FESTIVAL OF

By BERT STRATTON
At long last, the Blood, Sweat,
and Tears college-touring group
finally played the Events Build-
ing last night, and they left
about $11,000 richer.
BS&T gets that much money
for one concert not because
they're such good musicians
(which is partially true on an
individual basis), but because
they are damn good business-
men.
They know how to sell them-
selves, and they also know how
to manipulate the massive aud-
iences which they always seem
to attract. BS&T plays by all
the promotional rules of which
rule number one is that the
typical rock fan goes to a live
concert to see their favorite act,
not to hear them.
What they gave the audience
last night was a live enactment
of their second album plus a few
updated riffs and lead-ins, which
was just what the crowd want-
ted to "see." To work night af-
ter night within their h i g h 1 y
structured arrangements, must
be quite a grind on the talented
members of BS&T, but the
mighty dollars has been known
to stifle the creativity of many
performers more talented than
they.
However, it's not fair to group
the entire Blood, Sweat, and
Tears nonet into the category
of mediocre - because there's
two exceptions -- Fred Lipsius,
who plays alto sax and piano,
and Steve Katz, who plays lead
guitar, harmonica, and d oe s
