Britain's pastoral Faith Over Reason was a showcase for vocalist Moira Lambert, a West Sussex native who formed the group in London in 1990
Only 9 left in stock (more on the way). The lone album from the supergroup of Baker, Clapton, Winwood and Grech didn't live up to expectations, but features the great Can't Find My Way Home; Presence of the Lord, and Sea of Joy. The short-lived classic-rock supergroup Blind Faith's sole album has aged remarkably well. In 1969, Blind Faith fused the psychedelic blues of Eric Clapton and the soulful vocals and keyboards of Steve Winwood with the polyrhythmic, Afrocentric leanings of drummer Ginger Baker.
Blind Faith's first and last album, more than 30 years old and counting, remains one of the jewels of the Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Ginger Baker catalogs, despite the crash-and-burn history of the band itself, which scarcely lasted six months.
The Super-Group Blind Faith released their one and only self-titled debut album in August of 1969. The short lived band featuring Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ric Grech and Ginger Baker caused a huge controversy because the cover of the album featured a topless young girl holding a plane. Here’s what the photographer Bob Seidemann said about his vision for the album cover and the reason behind using such a young girl. I could not get my hands on the image until out of the mist a concept began to emerge

The same logo is also spraypainted on New York sidewalks. 2008 Noah and the Whale make a splash when their debut single "5 Years Time" peaks at on the UK Singles Chart. 1996 With the help of Broadway star Chita Rivera, over 50,000 baseball fans at Yankee Stadium break the record for the largest group dance when they bust a move to the "Macarena," the decade's latest dance craze. 1995 Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys performs live for the first time with his daughters Carnie and Wendy, recently famous for their stint in the trio Wilson Phillips.
Blind Faith held a number of rehearsals at Clapton’s home, jamming around together and creating new songs. They entered Olympic Studios and Morgan Studios in London sporadically between Feb. 20 and June 24, 1969, laying down the tracks for what would become Blind Faith's eponymous debut record. The platinum-selling Blind Faith even edged into Billboard's R&B Top 40. Still, controversy loomed over the album’s risqué cover art, which featured a pre-pubescent girl holding a chrome airplane. To the band, it represented the dichotomy between innocence and scientific achievement. To record dealers, it was unsellable smut. Atlantic Records head Ahmet Ertegun stepped in to smooth things over. We do not agree that the original sleeve is offensive, he announced to the press. But if any dealers do not want that cover, we will happily supply them with an alternative.
