Eva Cassidy - The Blues Alley Films

Classic Music Television presents Eva Cassidy and the live recordings known as The Blues Alley Films

Classic Music Television is proud to present Eva Cassidy. She was a great unknown guitarist and singer while she was alive. She mainly performed cover songs, beautifully.

Not long after the show in the films below, she was diagnosed with cancer that killed her less than a year later. Eventually the films made it around and she gained big fans and has sold millions of recordings, post death.

Below are restored films of Eva Cassidy, originally recorded on a single handheld camera, as you will notice with no cuts/edits, by her friend Bryan McCulley, performing at the Blues Alley jazz supper club in Georgetown, DC. These were all shot on the 3rd of January, 1996. These are among a very small batch of the only recordings she is known to have made. Enjoy!

Blind Faith's debut 1969 Hyde Park show

MusicTelevision.Com presents Blind Faith
The Original Blind Faith Record Cover

The history of Blind Faith, that featured Steve WinwoodEric ClaptonGinger 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 collectible when the record labels made changes to circumvent the bans.

Below are a few songs from Blind Faith's debut when they performed at a free concert in London's Hyde Park on June 7, 1969.

Well...All Right, Sea Of Joy & Sleeping On the Ground
