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on the front stood out in the middle of a field somewhere in the British countryside – this dodgy artwork was quickly withdrawn in the US and replaced with a photo of the band instead.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).Read more ›
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.
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.

I was at the concert in Hyde Park and thought it was awful. I then bought the vinyl album at the time and have played it once. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mr. W. Halligan
I heard that initially Baker wasn't to be on this album, but turned up and asked where he was sitting. Unable to say no, they let him in. Read morePublished 2 months ago by 70s
