4.0 out of 5 stars Blind Faith: Blind Faith - a sea of joy 13 May 2011
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars an underated album 22 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diary of a Doomed Supergroup 12 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sea of joy alright 1 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The story of the doomed venture that was Blind Faith has been very well documented. Often described as the first "Supergroup", to some extent the band's only album release reflected the pressures and weight of expectation which existed - and left little time for its members to gel fully as a unit. And although it might not be widely regarded as a classic, the band's self-titled album contains some great material and has a cult following amongst both Clapton and Winwood fans. Of its time, but, somehow, also with a timeless quality to its more classic tracks.

Lead vocals/keyboards/guitar/bass, Steve Winwood also contributed half of the songs on the original album and certainly comes across as the creative driving force behind the band. Eric Clapton's contribution is vastly different from his previous incarnation as guitar god in Cream - here he was searching for a new direction.

Along with Ginger Baker on drums and Rick Grech on bass/violin, this talented group showed in a very short time how brilliantly it could combine elements of blues, jazz, soul, folk and rock & roll in a decidedly rock context - it's a shame the début album would be the band's last.

"Had To Cry Today" opens affairs; a fine song of 'light and shade' and with an interesting guitar duet between Clapton and Winwood. A very un-Cream-like introduction to Blind Faith for Cream fans, despite Baker's unmistakeable drumming.

"Can't Find My Way Home" is a beautiful acoustic number, which would be adopted by Eric and Yvonne Elliman in Clapton's mid 1970's live sets and reprised by him regularly since. It's quite a short song in this guise and I only wish it were longer.

"Well All Right" lightens the mood considerably and avoids sounding like 'filler'(which it might have done).

4.0 out of 5 stars A 'Must Buy' of the era. 16 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
Picture a world where the rock scene's favourite band, Cream, has split up. Fan's are bubbling in a turmoil of both excitement and frustration at having lost them as their first 'supergroup' coupled with the awe and wonder as to what direction those 'gods' would take?
Clapton had been pictured in the press with his fabulous and bespoke Tony Zematis acoustic guitar, still a little shell-shocked from the demise of Cream stating he would be writing songs about Jesus.
This was slighly worrying, but at the time, and still even today, Eric can do whatever he wants and we will love it, nevertheless; so he did.
The formation of Blind Faith was not quite as gobsmacking as the formation of Cream, but with Winwood's pedigree of The Spencer Davis Group, jamming with Clapton on the 'Eric Clapton's Powerhouse' tracks which were released on the Elektra label, worked on 'Electric Ladyland' with Jimi Hendrix, and then formed Traffic, it sounded kind of interesting, but not earth-shattering. Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce had never got on too well anyway, so it was only natural Ginger would either go elsewhere and form a band or join Eric here, which he did. Rick Gretch was the bass player from Family and just filled the gap.
With the musician's, their joint pedigree, and the hype surrounding this latest 'supergroup,' Blind Faith, the album; disregarding the added 'gosh/shock/horror' extra-hype of the nubile yet adolescent young lady on the sleeve; was THE 'Must Buy' LP of 1969. But when you consider Cream split in November 1968, and Blind Faith had joined forces, appeared at Hyde Park and released this album in a little over 6 months, it was obvious things like the direction of the band and their music had never been discussed.
