Blind Faith, the self-titled only official release by the classic rock supergroup Blind Faith, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5. (The CD is available for $7.96).
Released in 1969, this one-off supergroup release, consisting of ex-Cream bandmates Ginger Baker and one Eric Clapton and British blue-eyed soul singer/piano player Steve Winwood, who had been in The Spencer Davis Group prior to this collaboration, created a memorable six-song record which musically endures to this very day. Great crossroads musically for the members of the group, who went on to other projects of varying success, Clapton with his own smashing solo career and Winwood, who formed the Blind Faith style-Traffic. This album is a largely successful venture, nice bright and punchy arrangements throughout, breezy rock and roll in a sense, backbeated by the rebellious attack of Baker. “Can’t Find My Way Home,” “Well All Right,” the wonderful “Sea of Joy,” the spiritually uplifting “Presence of the Lord,” and “Do What You Like” in which Baker has a field day, his tour-de-force in way; fresh off of the split from Cream, he’s still in his element a thousand fold. So are the rest of the group. Great album by a band which can only spark the question “What Could Have Been?” if Blind Faith had stayed together, instead of disbanding after its release.
