Blind Faith - album cover

I’ve decid­ed to kick off my first attempt at music blog­ging by lis­ten­ing to Blind Faith’s only release. I’ve been lis­ten­ing to this album (thanks to my old­er broth­er) for close to 50 years and have loved it ever since the first time. 

Eric Clapton has remained a favorite of mine through all those years, although recent­ly I have dis­agreed with his stance on vac­ci­na­tions. I’ll for­give him for this obvi­ous blunder. 

This album con­tains songs that have become Clapton and Winwood sta­ples in their live per­for­mances like Had to Cry Today and Can’t Find My Way Home. The orig­i­nal album (CD) is still avail­able and there’s been an anniver­sary release. 

The music is clear, hard-dri­ving, and inspi­ra­tional — it will get you going in the morn­ing. Bassist Ric Grech died in 1990 and drum­mer Ginger Baker passed in 2019, but Clapton and Winwood are very much alive and are still releas­ing new music. 

Enjoy!
