5 Songs To Relive The Career Of Blind Faith
Late 1960s Supergroup
Even with a short-lived career, the supergroup Blind Faith still made their mark in rock. Composed of Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech, they only had one album and tour before they split up. Both Winwood and Clapton have fond memories while they were still with the group which is why they have collaborated a couple of times performing Blind Faith material .
In fact, just a few days ago, Winwood and Clapton performed some Blind Faith classics at a Ginger Baker Tribute show in London’s Eventim Apollo. In honor of this iconic band, here are five of their best tunes.
5. Sea of Joy
An underrated track, it’s rock with a bit of country and folk too. It’s kind of different from Blind Faith’s other songs but what helped it stand out was Grech’s violin solo.
4. Well All Right
It’s a fun, funky, and catchy rock number originally recorded by Buddy Holly.
3. Presence of the Lord
With the masterful guitar playing, Baker also delivered the goods behind the kit.
2. Had To Cry Today
It’s their finest musical moment since every single member of the quartet brought something different and exciting to the table. It was also the best way to kick off their only LP.
1. Can’t Find My Way Home
Every element just works on this beautiful but melancholy number.
