Note:  

Quest'album, contenente sei canzoni, è l'unico fatto dai Blind Faith ed è uscito nel 1969 arrivando in prima posizione sia nelle classifiche degli Stati Uniti che d'Inghilterra. La copertina originale ritrae fino alla vita la figlia undicenne di Ginger Baker, nuda e con un superjet di metallo luccicante in mano. Non ci sono titoli, nomi o scritte di alcun genere. La scelta dell'immagine fu fatta da un grafico di San Francisco amico di Eric Clapton, Bob Seideman, che scelse "il superjet come frutto dell'albero della conoscenza, la ragazzina come frutto dell'albero della vita". La copertina non fu ben accetta dai discografici che videro nella forma del jet qualcosa di fallico, ma Clapton tenne duro e l'immagine rimase al suo posto. Comunque in Italia ed in quasi tutti gli altri stati la copertina originale dell'album fu censurata ed uscì con un'altra immagine che ritraeva i quattro componenti del gruppo sorridenti in mezzo ai loro strumenti, con ben scritti i loro nomi e quello dei BLIND FAITH.
I testi delle canzoni sono riportati in entrambe le versioni delle copertine dell'album.

Di quest'album ho un CD con i seguenti riferimenti:

Testi

Had To Cry Today
(Steve Winwood)

It's already written that today will be one to remeber
The feeling is the same as being outside of the law
Had to cry today
Well, I saw your sign and I missed you there
I'm taking the chance to see the wind in your eyes
While I listen
You say you can't reach me, but you want every word to be free
Had to cry today
Well, I saw your sign and I missed you there
And I missed you there

It's already written that today will be one to remeber
The feeling is the same as being outside of the law
Had to cry today
Well, I saw your sign and I missed you there
I'm taking the chance to see the wind in your eyes
While I listen
You say you can't reach me, but you want every word to be free
Had to cry today
Well, I saw your sign and I missed you there
Had to cry today...

 

Can't find my way home
(Steve Winwood)

Come down off your throne
And leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason
I've been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Well, I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own
And leave your money at home
Somebody must change
You are the reason
I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key
I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Oh, and I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
Still I can't find my way home
And I ain't done nothing wrong
But I can't find my way home

 

Well All Right
(Petty, Holly, Allison & Mauldin)


Well all right, so I've been foolish
Well all right, let the people know
'Bout the dreams and wishes thet your dream
In the night when lights are low
Well all right,
Well all right
You know we'll livw and love with all our might
Well all right, Well all right
You know our lifetime of love will be all right

Well all right, so I'm not working
Well all right, let the people say
That those foolish kids can't be ready
For the love that comes their way
Well all right,
Well all right
You know we'll livw and love with all our might
Well all right, Well all right
You know our lifetime of love will be all right

Well all right, so I've been foolish
Well all right, let the people know
'Bout the dreams and wishes thet your dream
In the night when lights are low
Well all right,
Well all right
You know we'll livw and love with all our might
Well all right, Well all right
You know our lifetime of love will be all right

 

Presence of the Lord
(Eric Clapton)

I have finally found a way to live
Just like I never could before
I know that I don't have much to give
But I can open up the door
Everybody knows the secret
Everybody knows the score yeh yeh yeh yeh
I have finally found a way to live
In the presence of the Lord

I have finally found a way to live
Just like I never could before
And I know that I don't have much to give
But soon I'll open any door
Everybody knows the secret
Everybody knows the score
I have finally found a way to live, oh
In the presence of the Lord
Ahhh In the presence of the Lord

Ohhh I have finally found a way to live
Just like I never could before
And I'm giving all I've got to give
But I can open any door
Everybody knows the story
I said everybody knows the score
I have finally found a way to live
In the colour of the Lord
In the colour of the Lord

 

Sea of joy
(Steve Winwood)

Following the shadow of the sky
Or are they only figments of my eyes
Feeling close to when the race is run
Waiting in our boats to set sail
The sea of joy

Once the door swings open into space
I'm already waiting in disguise
Or is it just a thorn between my eyes
Waiting in our boats to set sail
The sea of joy

Having trouble coming through
This concrete blocks my view

 

Do what you like
(Ginger Baker)

Do right, use your head
Everybody must be fed
Get together, break your bread
Yes together, that's what I said
Do what you like

Don't fight...
Don't fight...

Don't fight, use your head
It's alright every night
Do what you like
That's what I said
Everybody must be fed
Do what you like


Open your eyes
Realise you're not dead
Take a look
At an open book
Do what you like
That's what I said
Do what you like

Do right, use your head
Everybody must be fed
Get together, break some bread
Yes together, that's what I said
Do what you like

Open your eyes
Use your head
Realise that you're not dead
Take a look
At an open book
Let it cook
That's what I said
Do what you like
