Some bands and albums have a 'what if' legend about them and Blind Faith’s lone entry in the history of Rock is about as iconic as it can get – right down to its truly dreadful British sleeve (changed into a band shot on the American Atco issues). Exploitive artwork aside - it possesses some incredible tunes that still stand up 45 years later – and even retain a certain 'cool'. Here are the farmer's daughters...

UK released April 1986 (reissued September 1995) – "Blind Faith" by BLIND FAITH is a straightforward CD transfer of their lone album onto Polydor 825 094-2 (Barcode 042282509420) and plays as follows (41:59 minutes):

1. Had To Cry Today [Steve Winwood song]
2. Can’t Find My Way Home [Steve Winwood song]
3. Well All Right [Buddy Holly cover]
4. Presence Of The Lord [Eric Clapton song]
5. Sea Of Joy [Steve Winwood song] [Side 12]
6. Do What You Like [Ginger Baker cover]
The album "Blind Faith" was released July 1969 in the USA on Atco SD 33-304 and September 1969 in the UK on Polydor 583 059. The UK gatefold sleeve famously portrayed a naked prepubescent farm girl holding a model plane on the front stood out in the middle of a field somewhere in the British countryside – this dodgy artwork was quickly withdrawn in the US and replaced with a photo of the band instead. This single CD reissue however uses the controversial UK artwork with the American cover pictured on the inside of the gatefold inlay.

The supergroup consisted of ERIC CLAPTON on Guitar (John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream and The Yardbirds), Steve Winwood on Lead Vocals, Keyboards and Harmonica (Spencer Davis Group and Traffic), RICK GRECH on Bass (Family and Traffic) and GINGER BAKER on Drums (Cream).

Formed from the ashes of Traffic and Cream, Blind Faith comprised Ginger Baker on drums, Eric Clapton on guitar, Steve Winwood on keyboards and vocals, and Rick Grech on bass. With so much musical talent on board a real mish mash might have resulted from a clash of egos, but the guys got it together and recorded a standout album of great blues based music with a prog rock feel to it and a lot of soul.

With its extended, jazzy cuts, Clapton's fiery guitar, Baker's inventive drumming anbd Winwood's incomparable keys, this is an album that has a high reputation and easily lives up to it. It has everything an album of British blues rock should have aand is a veritable classic.

In 1969 Both Cream, Eric Claptons old band, and Traffic, Steve Windwoods band, had split (although Traffic would reunite the following year) and the two, who had always wanted to make an album together formed blind Faith with previous Cream drummer Ginger Baker and ex-family bassist Rick Grech, and went about making their one and only LP. Four of the six songs here are written by Windwood, Baker wrote the albums 15 minute finale "Do What You Like" and Clapton wrote possibly his best song "Presence of the lord". Windwoods songwriting and singing rarely got better than on this album in fact all the members were at there best. So yes at times the albums a little overblown and some of the songs go on a bit, but that doesn't stop it from being an incredible combination of talents with fantastic songs that range form hard rock on "Had to cry today" to folk on "Can't find my way home". when it comes down to it this is simply an incredible album that never gets boring no matter how many times you listen to it.

Perhaps it is a bit heavy to describe them as "doomed", but realistically there was no way Blind Faith could ever have lived up to the expectations of Cream fans (not to mention Traffic and Family fans!). The songs from the original album, with the acknowledged exception of the rambling "Do What You Like", actually showcase a flexible and innovative unit which, given time and a little breathing space, could have gone on to even better things. "Had to Cry Today" features brilliant guitar interplay between Eric and Steve - this sort of thing was more or less expected at the time, but rarely was it achieved with such finesse. "Can't Find My Way Home" is just a timeless classic; along with "Presence of the Lord" this shows just what Blind Faith were capable of: beautiful, heartfelt songs with real feeling and power to spare. The previously unreleased stuff (mostly extended jams and alternate takes as the titles would suggest) are sufficeently interesting to warrant buying this version - but its unlikely you will want to play them as often as the prime cuts from the original album.

Although effectively canned because of the extraordinary pressure the members were subjected-to, Winwood and Clapton have ensured that the Blind Faith legacy has been solidified. Together on their frequent and fantastic gigs they will happily play some numbers from this album.

Except bizarrely, the one very track that I still play, thirty years after being introduced to this album - Sea of Joy.

Embarrassingly I remember watching an Al Pacino film based around a song called 'Sea of Joy' - thinking what a wonderful thing it was that the Blind Faith song had been recognized with a movie title and plot core - except it wasn't Blind Faiths!

With the exception of Ginger 'nastiest bloke in rock' Baker's drum solo, 'Blind Faith' stands the test of time quite happily. Ric Gretsch of course is no longer with us, and Clapton and Winwood would go off in vastly different directions throughout the 70s and 80s. Go to one of their joint gigs though and like me, shout for 'Sea of Joy!' One day they might just give in and play it.
