BLIND FAITH picture
Blind Faith were an English blues rock band that comprised Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood, and Ric Grech. The band, which was one of the first super-groups, released their only album, Blind Faith, in August 1969. They were stylistically similar to the bands in which Winwood, Baker, and Clapton had most recently participated, Traffic and Cream. They helped to pioneer the genre of blues/rock fusion.

History

The beginnings of Blind Faith date from mid-1968, with the break-up of Cream. In retrospect as the first super-group, Cream had become a financial powerhouse, selling millions of records within a few years and raising the group's (and each member's) repertoire to international popularity. Despite that success, the band was crumbling from within because of frequent animosity between Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, with Eric Clapton doing his best to mediate. In addition, Clapton had tired of playing commercially driven blues and hoped to move

Interesting mix of Cream and Traffic. What else to say for this album? Unfortunately the only album by Blind Faith is a potentially devastating album in projection of future developments. That there have never been. Certainly in "Blind Faith" we can hear a very interesting Prog Soul Blues, varied and powerful. But not too technical. The melody of Winwood dominates in this album in the songs he has written and Clapton is "Clapton is God" only in "Do What You Like", written by Ginger Baker and, incidentally, an excellent example of the Power Prog Psychedelic Blues, light years away by Winwood and Traffic, but also by Cream!

Today "Blind Faith" like it because the result of the minds at the time of four musicians who were masters in their respective instruments. To be honest is not to remain totally enraptured by this album, which, admittedly, has aged badly (except "Do What You Like", because extremely personal and with a new vision).
