Blind Faith - London Hyde Park 1969.
On June 7, 1969, after months of rumor and speculation, Blind Faith climbed
up on a small stage and played their very first gig in front of 100,000 people
at London’s Hyde Park. With anticipation at an all-time high, the band
had a lot on the line. For Clapton, the hype was unbearable, something he had
attempted to escape in the aftermath of Cream. Despite an outpouring of adulation
after each and every number of the short set, the listless performance was sub-par
at best. On occasion, Winwood screeches out of range, especially on “Sea
Of Joy,” although he reins it in and keeps it simple for the most part.
An indifferent Clapton plays flawlessly and assumes the role of sideman to Winwood,
contributing little else besides his godly presence, which at the time was immense.
Baker’s hyperactive drumming has never been more on target and in the pocket.
Grech fits in well without calling too much attention to himself.
