Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The short-lived classic-rock supergroup Blind Faith's sole album has aged remarkably well. In 1969, Blind Faith fused the psychedelic blues of Eric Clapton and the soulful vocals and keyboards of Steve Winwood with the polyrhythmic, Afrocentric leanings of drummer Ginger Baker. "Can't Find My Way Home" is one of the hippie era's most lyrically poignant, sonically subtle tunes. The record has a lot of surprises; "Presence of the Lord" is rousing and melancholy at the same time, while the way the bass and guitar double-team on the introductory melodic line to "Had to Cry Today" makes a hard-rock cliché fresh again. The 10-minute drum solo on "Do What You Like" is pretty good as 10-minute drum solos go. This 2000 reissue of the album omits the unreleased jams and mixes that fill the second disc of the deluxe reissue that appeared earlier in the year. --Mike McGonigal

Product Description

The lone album from the supergroup of Baker, Clapton, Winwood and Grech didn't live up to expectations, but features the great Can't Find My Way Home; Presence of the Lord , and Sea of Joy .

Like many a "baby boomer" I too am still a fan of Cream, Blind Faith and other Nineteen Sixties "Classic" rock bands. In addition to the rock music styles of the `60's and intervening years, I also love many of the current styles of Alternative and Metal. Blind Faith was one of the excellent bands and albums to close out the decade. The other reviewers here have done a great job of pointing out the main points about the Blind Faith album. I agree with pretty much everything they say, but I would like to clear up a few slight errors, omissions, or misconceptions.

First, the original vinyl LP released in August 1969 came with either of two different covers in the USA. ATCO SD 33-304A had the infamous "Nude Girl with Airplane" cover, and ATCO SD 33-304B had the "Band Picture" cover (Note: Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker posing with the "incorrect" instruments.) At the time I did not know I had purchased the "clean" version. I did not even find out about the "naughty" jacket until I got curious about the "B" in the catalog number. Later, for many years the "Nude Girl" cover seems to have became only common on import pressings of the album (different catalog numbers as well). The retailers had indicated to Atlantic Records that they would not stock the album with the nude cover so a second cover was put out. This situation is similar to the US vs foreign releases of the Jimi Hendrix Experience album "Electric Ladyland."

Second, Rick Grech (Bass, Violin) had been a member of Family, Steve Winwood (Piano, Organ, Vocals) came from Traffic, and both Eric Clapton (Guitar) & Ginger Baker (Drums) were from Cream.

Third, In addition to the two basic versions of the Blind Faith (1990) Polydor 825 094 CD featured here on Amazon, I know of a third.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blind Faith: Remastered and Longer, But Better? January 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now often overlooked, Blind Faith was guitar god Eric Clpaton's first move after Cream imploded at the end of 1968. Joining forces with the multi-talented Steve Winwood(vocals and keyboards), who has just left Traffic, seemed like an unbeatable idea, and the addition of drummer extraordinaire Ginger Baker and bassist Rick Grech made Blind Faith seem like a "can't miss" project. Six months later it was over. Rushed into the studio by greedy and insensitive managers and then sent on a long and chaotic tour, Blind Faith never had a chance to gel as a band. After one promising album, the original supergroup broke up.
Judged a disappointment at the time Blind Faith's one and only album has some very fine moments. Clapton had yet to develop the confidence needed to be a convincing lead vocalist, so he deferred to Winwood, who was at his peak as a singer. Clapton's guitar work is simply magnificent, as he is already maturing beyond his work with Cream and pointing towards his renaissance with Derek & the Dominoes that began a year later.
Polydor has remastered "Blind Faith" using state-of-the-art technology, and reissued it with outtakes and jam sessions from the original 1969 recording sessions. The original album is a revelation; the sound as crisp and full as is imaginable. The clarity is astounding, and even if you think you know every note of this album, you will be pleasantly surprised by what you hear on this new version. Songs like Winwood's "Can't Find My Way Home" and "Sea of Joy," and Clapton's "Presence of the Lord" have aged very well and sound better than ever.
The outtakes are a mixed lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faith redeemed April 18, 2002
By Jinkyu
Format:Audio CD
This one-shot supergroup may not have lasted long, but they produced a solid recording here. There are only six songs, which is as expected--with Eric Clapton and Stevie Winwood in the same group and the opportunity to showcase Ginger Baker's remarkable talents as a drummer, jams are certainly in order and Ginger does well in "Do What You Like," the concluder. The songwriting is dominated by Winwood, but Clapton contributes his classic "Presence of the Lord," which begins with a soulful verseline and then bursts into a potent guitar solo. Winwood's "Sea of Joy," "Had to Cry Today," and "Can't Find My Way Home" are all excellent, with pretty verselines accentuated by his high-pitched vocals and neat instrumental riffs.
In fact, the only thing that stops me from giving this five stars (just barely) is that there are only six songs. The jams show solid musicianship and worksmanship but don't blow you away. However, do not let the uneven reception this album received deter you. It is eminently listenable, and actually very relaxing, something just to put on and soak up when you feel laid back. The songs are not mellow as in slow, but in texture Blind Faith is smooth-flowing solid rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad For A One-Album Band.... :-) May 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The world's first "supergroup," consisting of Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker & Rick Grech, Blind Faith fizzled out almost as quickly as they began---too many egos, too many cash-ins on the part of their managers, and a plagued U.S. tour sealed their fate. But amidst their all-too-brief whirlwind in 1969, the band DID manage to cobble together one single self-titled album, which still stands today as a classic. Containing just six songs, the "Blind Faith" album has held up just fine, thank you very much. "Had To Cry Today," spearheaded by Clapton's unique fretboard, is a groovy headbobber. "Can't Find My Way Home" is one of Winwood's most heartfelt compositions, and Clapton's beautiful "Presence Of The Lord" is one of the biggest highlights of Slowhand's career. The band put an excellent, fresh spin on Buddy Holly's "Well Alright," "Sea Of Joy" is another Winwood winner, and the big finish, Baker's "Do What You Like," is a rock drummer's heaven. And let's not overlook the great bass contributions throughout from Grech, keeping this great rock outfit firmly anchored.The original six-song "Blind Faith" album easily earns 5 out of 5 stars, but this is the special 2001 re-issue version, which now makes "Blind Faith" a double album, containing five previously unreleased extended jams and a few other studio leftovers. Now, you'd think that by applying more material to the album, it would make this already-brilliant recording even more brilliant. But not so fast---while some of the extra material here IS a wonderful addition to the 1969 album, some other material comes across as excess flab that should've stayed in the vaults. Read more ›
