Rocks In The Attic #47: Blind Faith – ‘Blind Faith’ (1969)

Rocks In The Attic #47: Blind Faith - ‘Blind Faith’ (1969)In terms of album covers, this has to be up there with the worst. Not only is it a photograph of a topless eleven year old girl (who is now a massage therapist in London), but this has been badly superimposed onto another image of a pastoral landscape, which clashes with the futuristic “spaceship” that the girl has in her hands. Thankfully the music inside is much better.

I’ve never been a huge fan of Cream because Jack Bruce’s vocals can be pretty annoying. Here you get Steve Winwood’s vocals (and keyboards) on top of Clapton’s guitar playing, and Ginger Baker on drums. It’s not the greatest album in the world – falling somewhere between late-60s psychedelia and early-70s rock – but it was a stepping stone nonetheless for Clapton.
