Blind Faith – Sea Of Joy (1969)


Blind Faith

Like what I’ve done with the album cover – thought not. The other day, I heard ‘Can’t Fine My Way Home’ for the first time in many a year. The Stevie Winwood single reminded me of the impact that the one and only Blind Faith album had on me when collecting the rock classics as a teenager. The supergroup were made up of Winwood, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Ric Grech. A Stones/Beatles ensemble would have had trouble topping that team sheet. The fruitful brew can be heard in ‘Sea Of Joy’ from their eponymous long player – the soulful blues of Winwood’s vocals, the serious blues rock of Clapton and Baker, and Grech’s art on the violin. I have found live footage from their 1969 Hyde Park gig on YouTube. Audiences had to enjoy it while it lasted; the band dissolved after just 6 month. That’s too much talent for you.
