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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

It's out of print now and pricey when you order it from a third-party seller, but the 2014 Deluxe Edition of this album is the one you want. Read morePublished 7 days ago by AD
Once again Amazon have mixed the reviews for the more recently remastered version (expen$ive) with the older (cheap). I got the old one, and the sound quality is atrocious. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Johnny Hodges
