"Cool Old Photo" time again!

Here's some of the crazy siblings I grew up with (circa 1963) There's my older brother holding my younger brother, my oldest sister holding my youngest sister, my other sister with my other sister and me praying in the foreground. There is one child missing and she's taking the photo. So..."God bless the child"..... (and the photographer that's always missing from the scene ;)

Blood Sweat and Tears from their self titled album (1968)

A brilliant song written by Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog, Jr.

BS&T suits the faded image of the baby-boom generation very well.
However my thoughts went to another song: Old Time Religion

Danke, Norbert.

Yes, the old time family religion was Catholic, hence the big family. ;)

Wow, that's quite some family! I only had a sister when I was growing up and then when I was about 17, a brother came along. So, it wasn't nearly as "crowded" in my household. I can't even imagine what it would have been like to have this many siblings!

It was crazy, but fun. The older kids wind up raising the younger ones. I adored my older sisters and brother (still do.)

Thanks, Kenny. :)

Clearly wonderful memories. A totally delightful shot. A classic from Blood, Sweat & Tears and a perfect musical match for 'Sight and Sound'. So many super tracks on the album. I'm not very sure what happened to my copy of the album.....a proper search is needed methinks :-) Thank you for posting, Karen.

Yeah, it is such a good album. I can remember listening to it a lot when my sister got it when we were teenagers. Like you say, so many good songs. Thanks a lot, Roger. I hope you can find your copy! :)

What a wonderful family shot! You came from a big family, Karen, but then again, there were a lot more large families in those days :-)

So true. Most of my friend's families were large too. Thanks, Val. :)
