The band Im talking about is Blind Faith. Even though they didnt last long they did grace us with one great album and that Hyde Park DVD that came out last year. I just got my copy and its as great as I remember when I watched it on PBS. Heres some clips

That is one group that I wish had stayed together. At least for a few more releases anyway.

Interesting to read Clapton's take on that Hyde Park show.

These guys were great and one release was not enough. This is one of those 'albums' ( ) from my past that I still listen to frequently today.

Yep, from those clips I can see in Clapton's face what he was describing in his book.

Clapton's take on the whole Blind Faith situation was a good read. Really makes you think what Clapton & Winwood would've done with a different rhythm section or just as a duo.

It's hard to compare their series of concerts this past February with Blind Faith since so much water's gone under the bridge for both of them.

As one of the original super groups.

I wish they had a vault full of unreleased stuff.

Not together long enough I guess. Even their only album is not very long. But it is good.

Loved them. I never had the Blind Faith album, but I did have the 2 lp Eric Clapton at his Best w/ much of the record on it. Man I wore that thing out. I just had to go to the MSG show in Feb. Did not buy any souvineers due to the prices, but I stumbled on some of the items being liquidated by EC Sales on Ebay. I grabbed the cool Clapton/Winwood poster for $35 w/ free shipping (it was $55 at the show).

What do y'all think about the original BLIND FAITH album cover? You know the one with the nude girl on it. Tell you the truth, it makes me nauseous having to look at it, she's one ugly girl. I'd rather see a naked picture of Ginger Baker or Eric Clapton on the cover instead!!!

Critics feel that DO WHAT YOU LIKE could have been cut down in order to accommodate a few more tracks (get rid of the drum solo). I know that's true but I still like the album as it is.

They do have that double CD that includes all the outakes and the jam sessions including "Time Winds," "Sleeping In The Ground" and the electric version of "Can't Find My Way Home." The jams aren't essential but the extra tracks are worth getting a hold of.

I honestly like this band more than Cream but the best Clapton ever got was Derek and the Dominoes with some guy named Duane. Also his stuff with Delany and Bonnie and Friends is good to

Ginger Baker was Blind Faith's drummer...The above comment about the short LP was about Blind Faith's LP,not The Domino's...

Well, Jim Gordon's paranoid schizophrenia obviously didn't help the situation.

Good band, should have been great! As a big Steve Winwood fan [& Cream of course],I was there to see their first gig in Hyde Park.....my lasting memory is one of disappointment. We all hoped to see a version of Cream with Steve's vocals. I grew to love their music years later alongside Traffic.

Is it okay to show that?

So much so that they went on to form Derek and the Dominoes!

Rick Grech is dead, Baker is retired and Clapton and Winwood
just did their little MSG gig back in Feb.

Was listening to the Deluxe Version today and reading the liner notes.
Apparently there isn't much in the way of outtakes. They made an enormous
amount of takes of single songs from Feb - July '69 prior to the album being
released in Aug '69.

With so little in the can, it's no wonder they released the "jams".
Which, incidentally, I enjoy a lot. Not as fun as the D&tD's jams,
but there some pretty rocking stuff there.
