Cream had proven to be too much for Eric Clapton. After that band broke up, he and Ginger Baker decided to join up with Stevie Winwood who had just left Traffic. The three began jamming and writing songs and later joined by bassist/violinist Rick Grech to form Blind Faith. The short-lived Supergroup produced one album and an unsuccessful tour, but god was this album amazing!
Winwoods voice just soars on songs like Had to Cry Today, where Clapton plays some awesome guitar behind him. Claptons Presence of the Lord is an amazing song, which features Claptons leslie-tele sound and Stevies amazing voice and piano before it goes into the awesome wah part where Clapton reveals that he still is the GOD we knew from Cream. Another fantastic song is Buddy Hollys Well Allright with both Clapton and Winwood singing fantastic. The jam at the end is even more awesome with Stevie playing some of his incendiary piano. Winwood seems to be the star of the show on the other songs. Cant Find My Way Home is a beautiful song as is Sea of Joy, which is possibly Stevies best singing on the album as well as including some of Rick Grechs fantastic violin work. Do What you Like is Bakers composition and an awesome jam where everybody plays some awesome solos. Clapton and Bakers jazzy-like solos are huge standouts.
This is one of the greatest albums in history for both Clapton and Winwood. If you are fan of either of them, or just good music, you MUST get this album!
