Background: Released in 1970, Blood, Chet and Tears was an album by Chet Baker, released during a time when he was trying to find his way back in to Jazz after a series of well-publicized incidents that left him unable to play for a while.

While the album is mostly instrumental, Baker sings on two tracks – “Something,” and “Come Saturday Morning.” gave Blood, Chet and Tears this review:

Yes, the title is a groaner and, yes, this is an easy listening album of late-’60s soft rock hits, but to be fair — the album isn’t that bad. It’s actually better than some of the Herb Alpert releases of the same era that inspired it. But the difference is that Alpert was just being himself, while Blood, Chet & Tears finds Baker trying to sound like somebody else and that’s the worst thing about the album. It literally sounds like Baker is hiding his true musical personality rather than expanding upon that personality. And when you come right down to it, that really is selling out as opposed to what George Benson and others were doing during this same period. That said, except for a bizarre version of “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” the album stands up as kitschy easy listening.
