2019 EU on 180g LP+download Cut at Half-Speed by Abbey Road Studios' Award-Winning Engineer Miles Showell! -Blind Faith may have been the most anticipated new group in rock history. Yet rock's first supergroup - Cream's Eric Clapton, Traffic's Steve Winwood, Cream's drummer Ginger Baker and Family's bassist Rick Grech - was together for just seven months and just one album. That 1969 self-titled album, with six songs, just over 40 minutes long, has become a landmark in rock. Highlighted by the now-classic "Can't Find My Way Home," "Presence Of The Lord," "Sea Of Joy" and "Had To Cry Today," the original album garnered tremendous success, soaring to the top of the charts in the U.S., U.K. and throughout the world.

The only album by blues-rock supergroup Blind Faith will be reissued by UMC/Polydor as a half-speed master vinyl LP cut by Abbey Road Studios' award-winning engineer Miles Showell. The technique, also employed by Showell for UMC's recent reissues of Creedence Clearwater Revival's entire seven-album studio catalogue, results in the very highest quality sound reproduction. The Blind Faith reissue will be presented on heavyweight vinyl with high-spec packaging to create a thoroughly bespoke vinyl experience. It will provide a sound quality that is superior to anything else currently available.
Formed as quite possibly the very first British super group – though Cream could lay claim to that title too – Blind Faith made their famous entry into the public consciousness on June 6, 1969, at London's Hyde Park where thousands gathered overnight to witness the arrival of a combo comprising guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker from Cream, bassist Ric Grech from the art-rock Leicester group Family and the multi-talented musician and vocalist Steve Winwood, the erstwhile Little Stevie who had starred in Birmingham's Spencer Davis Group and then entered the hippy underground with the amazing Traffic in 1967.
They released the album Blind Faith in August 1969 with producer Jimmy Miller bringing the disparate characters into line on a six track LP that included three Winwood originals, Clapton's divine "Presence of the Lord" (much influenced by his friendship with George Harrison) and a Ginger jam out on the lengthy "Do What You Like." The album hit the top slots in the UK and US and has since become regarded as a landmark release in rock. The huge amount of talent within the ensemble guarantees surprises and the album is an important milestone in the history of British rock music during the exciting if turbulent period that ended the 1960s.
This record was cut using a specialist technique known as half-speed mastering. This artisan process results in cuts that have superior high frequency response (treble) and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, a very high quality master that helps to create a very high quality record. The original cut for this record was half speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
