Blind Faith – Blind Faith


As super-groups go, Blind Faith certainly fitted the bill and this their self titled 1969 album featured a cover which courted a fair bit of controversy.

Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker after disbanding Cream got together with Family’s Ric Grech and Steve Winwood (Traffic, Spencer Davis Group) to form the band and wrapped it all up in an image by photographer Bob Seidemann featuring a topless pubescent girl, holding a silver space ship. US releases came with an alternative cover with a picture of the band (not The Band). The images title ‘Blind Faith‘ became the name of the, as yet, untitled project.

Featuring ‘Can’t Find My Way Home‘ , ‘Presence of the Lord‘ and Ginger Baker’s jam ‘Do What You Like‘  the album topped the albums chart on release in the UK, US and Canada.
