Offered for sale is a 1987 Japanese pressing of the only album by Blind Faith, the self-titled Blind Faith, with the “withdrawn” nude cover and including the original obi.
This was the last Japanese issue of the album before they discontinued pressing vinyl in 1989, and it sold poorly.

A nice copy of a terrific album and a fairly rare variation.
Background: Blind Faith was billed as a “supergroup,” featuring Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker of Cream, Steve Winwood of Traffic, and Rick Grech from Family. While the band only produced one album, the self-titled Blind Faith, released in 1969, the album sold well, yielded a successful tour, and remains a popular album today.
The album generated controversy upon release, due to the cover art by photographer Bob Seidemann, which featured a nude 11 year old girl holding what appeared to be an automobile hood ornament.
Blind Faith’s first and last album, more than 30 years old and counting, remains one of the jewels of the Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Ginger Baker catalogs, despite the crash-and-burn history of the band itself, which scarcely lasted six months. As much a follow-up to Traffic’s self-titled second album as it is to Cream’s final output, it merges the soulful blues of the former with the heavy riffing and outsized song lengths of the latter for a very compelling sound unique to this band.
