Blind Faith - Blind Faith 1969

Formed by Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker from the band Cream, along with Steve Windwood of the Spencer Davis Group and Ric Grech from Family, Blind Faith is another addition to the trend in the late sixties and early seventies for rock supergroups.

There was a huge amount of controversy surrounding Blind Faith's original album artwork (below right), which featured a photograph of a naked girl stroking a distinctly phallic model of an aeroplane.

While Eric Clapton did his best to defend the band's choice of album artwork their record company released the album with an alternative cover in the US and Canada (pictured left) which featured a much more traditional photograph of the band and included a label detailing the members of the supergroup.
