Blind Faith "Hyde Park 1969" To Be Released 30 May
Blind Faith - Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood, and Rick Grech - were rock's first supergroup. After more than 35 years, their debut concert in London's Hyde Park on 7 June 1969 will be released on DVD. "Hyde Park 1969" hits shelves 30 May 2005. Running time: 58 minutes (all regions).
The concert has never been seen in its entirety. Blind Faith's set was only 40 minutes long, but the audience was treated to now-classic tracks like "Presence of the Lord", "Sleeping In The Ground", and a cover of the Rolling Stone's "Under My Thumb".
"Hyde Park 1969" also has archive footage of the various members of Blind Faith performing within their earlier musical guises. Clips of the Spencer Davies Group, Traffic, Family and Cream performing serve as a prelude to Blind Faith's first concert. The DVD also boasts other "Extras".
Running Time: 58 minutes (all regions).
