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

Under My Thumb - Can't Find My Way Home
