Blind Faith’s one and only album, released in summer of 1969… the self titled: Blind Faith

This is one of those great albums that seems like it was only intended to be heard blaring from a gritty old turntable.  I may only occasionally listen to the single “Can’t Find My Way Home” on a playlist from my iPod but this fantastic piece of rock & roll history gets a lot of time on my turntable. As far as supergroups go, Blind Faith is one of my favorites. You can’t go wrong with Steve Winwood at the helm. Throw in Eric Clapton, with Ginger Baker and Ric Grech, and it’s a beautiful thing. One interesting sidebar about this album is that the original album art from the UK release was banned in the States. Take a look below and you can see why. Unfortunately, the US version is not nearly as artistically compelling but then again, you have to consider the times. In 1969, attitudes were just starting to change. Back then, the prudish suits still ran the record industry so it was lead by their ideals… and, in this case, lack of creativity.
