Catalogue Note

Bob Seidemann's surreal and enigmatic "Blind Faith" graced the album cover of Eric Clapton's first post-Cream project. The band consisted of Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech, and took both its name and the title of its only album from Seidemann's photograph. The image of a nude young girl holding a futuristic metal plane stirred controversy even before the album's release when Polydor balked at using it as cover art. Clapton insisted, however, and the 1969 UK release of Blind Faith featured Seidemann's photograph. The album was consequently banned in some countries, and in America it was released with an alternate photograph on the cover.
