Los Angeles, CA – November, 2020 –Jesse James Films in association with Crew Neck Productions are producing a fully authorized documentary blending music, politics, social commentary and a mystery involving one of the biggest rock bands of the late 60s/early 70s: Blood, Sweat & Tears. The film will be written, produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker John Scheinfeld.
In 1970, Blood, Sweat & Tears was one of the biggest bands in the world. They had exploded on the scene with both daring and promise, selling millions of records, winning multiple Grammy Awards including Album of the Year (beating out The Beatles’ Abbey Road) and headlining the legendary Woodstock festival. In demand for concert and TV appearances, BS&T was a darling of the mainstream and rock press, icon of the counterculture and inspiration for a generation of horn-based bands. Their future was limitless. And then it all went wrong.
Created with the full cooperation of Blood, Sweat & Tears, the film will overflow with great music, international political intrigue, compelling human moments, humor and fresh insight into this strange never-before-told story. James Sears Bryant serves as Executive Producer with Jesse Murphy as Co-Executive Producer.
PRODUCERS ARE LOOKING FOR PHOTOS AND MEMORABILIA OF THE BAND FOR THE YEARS 1968-71. IF YOU HAVE SUCH TO SHARE, PLEASE REACH OUT TO US AT
