A sealed Atco copy of Blind Faith's only LP, released in 1969.
Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the only album by Blind Faith, released in 1969 on the original Atco label.
Blind Faith’s only album was a mixed bag; it has its moments, but most critics felt the album might have been better if the band had more material, rather than taking up most of the second side with the drum-solo-heavy Do What You Like. Still, the album sold well, and the tour that followed it was a success. It seemed like the band couldn’t miss, anyway, being hailed as one of the first “supergroups”, with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker from Cream, Steve Winwood from Traffic, and Rich Grech from Family. Still, after one album, the band called it a day and went on to other individual projects.
Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the original American pressing on Atco, SD-33-304B, with the second cover, which features a photo of the group on the front and lyrics on the back. (The cover with the girl on the cover was 33-304A; that version was quickly deleted.) This album was deleted in the mid-1970s, and reissued later in the decade on the RSO label with a different cover.
The shrinkwrap is tight with no tears or rips, and the cover has no holes, cuts or saw marks. The vinyl feels somewhat thin, so while this is a 1970s pressing, it probably isn’t a 1969 pressing. On the other hand, the Atco label did not change during the time the album was in print in the U.S., so the record will have the same yellow label regardless.
A beautiful sealed copy of an important album that’s hard to find as a clean original.
