The Trick Is To Keep Going

Blind Faith Photos


The top two photos are from the Blind Faith tour programme for their one and only tour in 1969. The first is the back cover, the second the cover and perhaps a much more controversial photo than the infamous album photo of an 11-year-old nude girl holding a silver space ship (actually fashioned after a car hood ornament) against a field of green. I discussed the origin of the cover in a post called The story behind the Blind Faith cover.

The tour programme cover has an apparently older blind-folded nude model in what appears to be a crucifix pose, her arms trussed with rope and her breasts hidden by her long hair as the band sits sedately underneath. I suppose because it wasn’t seen by as many people, it didn’t cause as much of an uproar at the time as the album cover. The rest are a mix of photo shoots and concert shots. The next-to-last last photo is a shot of Clapton with his next stop after Blind Faith, Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, the friend on the right Beatle George Harrison, who sat in on a few shows.
