Clapton and Winwood were friends and mutual admirers, and had jammed together on several occasions, so when both found themselves at liberty following the breakup of their respective groups, they investigated the idea of forming a band together.
One day, Ginger Baker stopped by while Clapton and Winwood were working out material, and he sat in on drums. The group became a quartet with the addition of bassist Rick Grech , who had been playing with the celebrated U.
By May , the quartet was recording an album, with Jimmy Miller serving as producer, and given the massive commercial success of Cream and widespread curiosity about Clapton 's next project, the new band -- now dubbed Blind Faith by the tongue-in-cheek Clapton -- signed a lucrative record deal with Atlantic in the United States as well as Polydor in the U. Promoters were clamoring for a tour, and the band scheduled dates in Europe, the United States, and Canada.
Blind Faith made their public debut with a show at London's Hyde Park on June 7, ; an estimated , people were on hand for the show, and while most in attendance seemed thrilled with the concert, Clapton in particular was not pleased with how loose and informal Blind Faith sounded on-stage. By the end of the month, Blind Faith had set out on a club tour of Europe, and the smaller shows allowed them better control of their sound and performances, but when they hit America in July, they were booked into large arenas often saddled with dubious acoustics and poor sound systems.
Fans eager to see the new band that was the talk of the rock press often battled with police and security as they rushed the stage, and the musicians were displeased with the chaotic atmosphere. It didn't help that Blind Faith had less of an hour's worth of new music to perform before they set out on tour; the band played North America for seven weeks, and by most reports they were rarely happy with their performances or the circumstances of the tour.
In August , the Blind Faith album finally hit the streets, and while "Presence of the Lord" and "Can't Find My Way Home" quickly became FM rock staples and the album topped the charts in Britain and the United States, reaction to the project was less enthusiastic than many had expected, and the band received negative press for the LP's cover, which featured a topless schoolgirl playing with a silver airplane model.
