BLIND FAITH was cursed at its very inception by being billed as a supergroup. This was truly a pity, because for all the classic beauty of their only recording, Blind Faith was a band that never had a legitimate opportunity to come together as a performing ensemble. Hyped to the hilt and rushed into a massive, chaotic tour, the band fell apart after its final American concerts when Eric Clapton packed it in to join Delaney & Bonnie's band.
BLIND FAITH scored a big hit with their evocative acoustic ballad "Can't Find My Way Home", featuring Winwood's raspy falsetto, Clapton's poignant acoustic guitar, and Baker's pulsing brush work. But then, every song on BLIND FAITH has become an FM radio staple, "Presence of the Lord" with Winwood's fervent vocals to "Had to Cry Today", featuring Clapton's dense, multi-tracked blues leads, and the jacked-up rockabilly of Buddy Holly's "Well Alright". But the band never had much of a life outside the studio and after Blind Faith folded, Winwood and Grech joined Baker's Air Force before re-forming Traffic. Clapton began moving away from extended improvisations into more tightly structured song forms on his first solo album ERIC CLAPTON, and then with Derek & The Dominos.
