‘Tickets @ 2′ this afternoon calls on a song by a group that established a milestone in rock history with its large horn section and Jazz-Blues orientation, it’s [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blood, Sweat & Tears[/lastfm]’ “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy.”

It was originally a #39 hit for Motown artist Brenda Holloway in 1967. Holloway shares writing credit on the song with Motown founder Berry Gordy, Frank Wilson and Patrice Holloway.

Blood, Sweat & Tears founder and keyboard player Al Kooper came up with the idea to record it, but he left the group before they recorded it and lead singer David Clayton Thomas took over the reins.

It was the first of 3 US #2 hits with “Spinning Wheel” and “When I die.” Caller # 12 wins the Nascar viewing party passes and K-1 Go Kart laps; 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
