Blind Faith – Very Rare UK True 1st Pressing “Blind Faith” LP
A very rare true UK first pressing of Blind Faith, the sole album by the Eric Clapton/Ginger Baker/Steve Winwood/Rick Gretch supergroup on Polydor. On the earliest 1969 pressings of Blind Faith, the front panel of the gatefold cover (the left side when opened) is a single sheet of card stock, printed on both sides, while the back cover (the right side when opened) is made up of two sheets glued together, with an opening on the right edge so the disc can be inserted. Additionally, only the earliest discs have textured labels. Very soon after the album’s release, it was repressed with a double weight cover on both sides and smooth glossy labels.
On this example, the cover is in EX condition, with only some very light wear (the controversial cover for Blind Faith is regarded as one of the greatest album covers of all time, and is certainly the first on a rock album to have no writing on the front or back.) The textured label disc is in VG++ to EX- condition, and plays beautifully with the exception of four ticks at the end of “Sea of Joy” and two others between songs.
A scarce and sought after album (and a superb one as well.)
