Pure Pop Records

Live archive release containing 10 previously unissued live recordings from 1970 recorded in Yugoslavia, Romania, and Poland. Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce the release of the soundtrack to the upcoming acclaimed documentary What The Hell Happened To Blood, Sweat & Tears? A political thriller with a classic rock band at the heart of the action, this story has been suppressed for over 50 years! In 1970, Blood, Sweat & Tears became the first American rock band to perform behind the Iron Curtain, doing concerts in Yugoslavia, Romania, and Poland. The tour was sponsored by the U.S. State Department. A documentary film crew accompanied the band and shot over 65 hours of material for what was intended to be a theatrical documentary. The documentary was never released and the film footage disappeared. The music was also captured on tape but never issued or even heard by the band themselves. Upon returning to the states after the tour, the group became victim of the significant societal upheaval and culture wars in a polarized America. The toxic environment found the band in a crossfire between the Right and the Left and the group suffered greatly as a result. What The Hell Happened To Blood, Sweat & Tears? is a film about this tour, this journey and the discovery of the film and music that documented one of the world's biggest bands at the peak of their powers. Award winning director John Scheinfeld (Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him?), The U.S. vs. John Lennon, Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary, Herb Alpert Is...) has once again captivated audiences with a thrilling story that contains amazing previously unreleased film footage and stunning musical performances.
