Blind Faith
"Blind Faith" (Vinyl)

The follow-up supergroup (not the original supergroup, mind you) to Cream was a project consisting of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood and Ric Grech.

With the break-up of Cream in 1968, the release of a new project only a year later by Clapton caused a huge buzz in the rock n' roll community.

The album sounds like it should: dirty, crusty bluesy rock with a whole mountain of musical skill just waiting around to explode at the right moment.
Oddly enough, this album is probably known more for its controversial cover art than for the music.  As it turns out, if you put an naked eleven year-old on the cover of your record, people will pay attention.
