Song Of The Day: Blind Faith – “Well All Right” (1969)

On this day in 1969, Eric Clapton, Stevie Winwood, Ginger Baker and Rick Grech announced the formation of Blind Faith. It seemed like a great idea at the time, gathering such illustrious Rock talents together, but this thing was doomed right from the start. Eric Clapton left Cream because he began to hate this new “Rock Star” thing, and Blind Faith only dragged him right back into it. Since the new band had only one album under its belt, they had to perform old Cream songs in concert, only making things worse for Clapton. The opening act on the Blind Faith tour was Delaney and Bonnie and Friends, and Clapton spent more time hanging out and playing with them then he did with the Blind Faith guys. By the end of the year this “supergroup” was kaputski, and everyone involved moved on to better things.

  1. How about some info on who sang lead on this track? I’m sure it’s Eric, but a barrage of people on You Tube insist it’s Steve Winwood. If so that’s sad, because as much admiration as I have for Steve, it would have been gracious of him to let someone else have a song, and Eric had a decent voice even then.
