|The Original Blind Faith Record Cover|
The history of Blind Faith, that featured Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Rick Grech, is a quick story. The group only released one record in 1969, and the group's self titled record shot to #1 in the U.S. airplay charts in August 1969, achieving platinum sales status, also hit #1 on the U.K. airplay charts in September of that year and achieved Gold sales status there.
The original cover, featured above, was banned in some countries and created a bit of social outrage in some corners, which did not hurt sales and made it more collectable when the record labels made changes to circumvent the bans.
Below are a few clips of Blind Faith's debut when they performed at a free concert in London's Hyde Park on June 7, 1969.
