David Clayton-Thomas was born David Henry Thomsett on 13th September 1941 in  Canada.
Clayton-Thomas began his music career in the early 1960s, working the clubs on Toronto’s Yonge Street, where he discovered his love of singing and playing the blues. Before moving to New York City in 1967, Clayton-Thomas fronted a couple of local bands, first The Shays and then The Bossmen, one of the earliest rock bands with significant jazz influences. But the real success came only a few difficult years later when he joined Blood, Sweat & Tears.
Clayton-Thomas’s first album with the band, Blood, Sweat & Tears, despite its title, was actually the band’s second album – sold ten million copies worldwide and topped the Billboard album chart for seven weeks and charted for 109 weeks. In 1972 Thomas released his solo album on Columbia titled “David Clayton Thomas”. In 1973 the second solo album Tequila Sunrise was issued by Columbia. In 1974 he issued the Harmony Junction album on RCA. In 1975 Thomas returned to front Blood Sweat & Tears, whilst still putting out tracks under his own name. This solo release from 1969 is cool, paced R& B fused with Northern, check out the flip “Done Somebody Wrong”. Disc has a “Drill hole” otherwise in EXCELLENT condition!!
