  11. This is going to be a strange post because it is going to discuss the music.

    Thanks for this souvenir of a short-lived super group. I had only heard one other Blind Faith bootleg (San Diego) and this one is much better. Not a great recording but listenable. Stereo separate is limited, but it is from fifty years ago!

    It is nice to hear a couple of songs that were not on Blind Faith’s one studio recording. What strikes me though is how closely the songs from the album stick to the studio recordings… at least as I remember them.

    I saw Blind Faith at Madison Square Garden on this — their one — tour. I remember thinking “You guys broke up Cream to come back with this?” As I listen now to the lack of extending the music, I think this was a band that never had time to find its identity. Loads of talent, but not enough purpose. The talent was there of course, but Eric Clapton needed to pretend he was a sideman with Delaney and Bonnie for a year or so before he could blaze forth in Derek and the Dominos.

    Still worth a listen. And you can ask yourself what might have happened if only Duane Allman had sat in?

  17. Good comments Frederick..i added this one to my Clapton mp3 files..Crossroads was great on this show..its interesting looking at pics from the Eric Clapton live history book of the blind faith shows and his guitars and clothes.. also Ginger Baker sounds really wasted….nice contrast of this type of music to the high powered Van Halen bootlegs I’ve been listening to since Eddies passing.

  18. Frederick miller, you may want to look for the bootleg, “Compensation For Betrayal” all the known live gigs included. https://www.collectorsmusicreviews.com/blind-faith/compensation-for-betrayal-complete-live-materials-know-to-exist-1969/

  19. I only know Blind Faith from recordings, and I agree with Frederick’s post. It’s a careful outfit; everyone is professional and no one is taking risks. I like the more adventurous, causal outings (Stills/Kooper, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page & Carmine Appice, Hendrix/Buddy Miles,for instance)that are looser and longer. They needed a few more risk takers and side men (Jack Bruce, Ian Stewart, that kind of player).
