David Clayton Thomas

The lead singer for Blood, Sweat & Tears' most popular incarnation was born in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, England, in 1941, the son of a Canadian soldier who served in World War II. David Clayton-Thomas grew up in a suburb of Toronto; living in a difficult family environment, he left home as a teenager and began his musical career at age 23 in the Shays. They became the Bossmen in 1965 and released "Brainwashed" in 1966. After Al Kooper left Blood, Sweat & Tears following the release of Child Is Father to the Man in early 1968, Clayton-Thomas was added to the BS&T lineup as the new frontman/singer, and the group scored a major hit with the Blood, Sweat & Tears album released in January of the following year. The band's hit-filled eponymous sophomore album won the 1969 Grammy for Album of the Year. While singing in BS&T during the late '60s and early '70s, Clayton-Thomas began a solo career, releasing self-titled albums for Decca (1969), Columbia (1972), and RCA (1973). A re-formed version of Blood, Sweat & Tears featuring Clayton-Thomas appeared in 1980, signed to MCA, and released Nuclear Blues. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Outstanding!
BS&T did not achieve any commercial sucess until DCT joined the band. Without DCT it is not BST!
Clayton. Is the. Grand. Pouba! Got. Soul

DCT is my favorite singer of all time period.
His gutsy voice is unique in every way. A one of a kind. Grew up listening to him. Never knew how much I missed hearing him over these years.
Totally unique vocalist---w h a t a range!
Who else sings and sounds like DCT? Not another on this planet!

Wow! Listening to God Bless the Child on In Concert … He sounds as good, if not better, than the old days! This band is great, too!

DCT became the voice of BST but I can't quit her by Al Kooper is as good as it gets
BST music was a huge part of my teen years. Unfortunatel y we all have changed with age, everything except my memory of the first time I heard that music, that sound is the same.
At 70+ DCT still has the blues chops he always had. The band is so tight, this is timeless music performed by the best at their trade. Amen.
Love this song!! Learned in 2nd Grade back in 19?? To do beat counts with Music teacher Mr. Gibson-My Hero :)
When he was with BS&T he could sing!... well, not much anymore. Time to call it quits! even back in 2006.
*singer! lol
WRONG again! Pandora! DCT was NOT the lead singet for BS&T 1st 4 albums...... . 1st album was Al Kooper

Saw BS&T at the Whiskey with David and went out of my head helped along with the Acid. Friend and I sat at table with some record execs that let us sit at their table. The horns and David's voice still echo in my mind to this day. I attended a lot of concerts back then and I never heard anything like them.
I saw Kooper and Katz at the Bitter End in 1966 with the Blues Project. With all due respect, Kooper couldn't carry DCT's mouthwash when it came to vocal ability. Let's not forget that DCT wrote the classic BS&T songs.

It's a shame these powerhouses have to age. Would love to freeze time.
Clayton did have a great voice, but BS&T first album is in my opinion, one of the best 10 albums every made. Al kooper's the man.

b.mitch.myer s has correctly noted that Al Kooper, whose vision of horn-influen c e d rock led him to lead the formation of BS&T, was the band's first lead singer (sharing that role with guitarist Steve Katz). Kooper's voice. however, lacked strength. DCT has a powerful instrument in his throat!

@ b.mitch.myer s Define best.

Sorry Dr Evil, but Clayton was the voice of the BS&T....
The third BS&T singer, Jerry Fisher, was and IS the best.
David Clayton has a great voice. It just carries on like this song!Very good music.
b.mitch.myer s
The information above is incorrect. The first (and best) BS&T singer was the groups founder Al Kooper. DCT did not join until the second album.
I absolutely love his voice! His music reminds me of my childhood. Very nice memories.
