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 .
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

Move on guys, this was always something of a hype, back then i didn't know many real serious music fans who liked it that much, it's really kinda boring isn't it?
Blind faith was put together to play the already booked tour of Cream. However Cream's breakup left the tour without a band.
The band that recorded this was not happy.
I bought this to hear Duane Allman. Thankfully Eric brought him along.
For the Tour, the opening act was Delaney and Bonnie and friends. Two of the friends were Eric and Duane.
On this album Steve Winwood sings. His singing is so bad it is painful. In the guitar fills Eric and Duane try to outdo each other, then it is back to Steve's singing. It is no wonder that at tours end it was also Blind Faith's end.
Ginger Baker does a drum solo. It is weak compared to his Cream solos. He was not happy.
This album is a documentation of where the artists were at that point in their careers.
Duane Allman is one of the greatest guitar player of all time. This album deserves no stars.
Is it asking too much to have a Classic Rock album/CD in English ??
