Classic Vinyl: Blind Faith [AUDIO]

Blind Faith were one of classic rock’s first “Supergroups,” and consisted of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood and Ric Grech.  In fact, some people even referred to the band as “super Cream.” Their only self-titled album not only hit the #1 spot for Pop Album in both the U.S. and the UK, but also went down in history as one of the most controversial vinyl covers of all time.

The original album cover featured a young, topless girl on the front cover holding a spaceship. The controversy ignited over the girl’s age, and rumors began to form about her relationship with the band. Others also perceived the spaceship to be a “phallic symbol.” If you don’t know what a phallic symbol is, don’t worry, Sam Talkington explains in the audio below.

Although initially banned in some countries, the original artwork was very popular and considered collectible. An alternative cover was eventually issued, since Blind Faith’s American distributor Atlantic Records had deemed the original album cover unacceptable.
