"Lucretia MacEvil" – Blood, Sweat & Tears


[i]Devil got you, Lucy
Under lock and key
Ain’t about to set you free
Signed, sealed and witnessed
On the day you were born
No use tryin’ to fake him out
No use tryin’ to make him out
Soon, he’ll be takin’ out his due
What-cha goin’ to do?[/i]

This song was released by the jazz-rock group, Blood, Sweat & Tears, in 1970. It was moderately successful, reaching #29 on the US singles chart and #39 on the US Adult Contemporary chart.

“Lucretia MacEvil” is one of several BS&T songs written by David Clayton-Thomas, who was the group’s frontman at the time. Clayton-Thomas is said to have taken inspiration for his song from the “bad girls” he saw in the funky bars where he performed prior to joining BS&T in 1968. He was also influenced by Horace Silver’s "Filthy McNasty", a jazz piece about a “young man of rather dubious character”.

And today, David Clayton-Thomas turns 80 years old. Happy birthday to Mr. Clayton-Thomas.

I remember BS&T and Chicago were popular - good times.

[@15458,Pretzel] Yes, their version of "God Bless the Child" is first-rate.

Love both groups. Chicago was at its best in the early days, in my opinion.
Another lovely post..
