Blind Faith Hyde Park DVD

Tuesday, August 01, 2006


SEPTEMBER 19, 2006
Rock’s first Super Group in their only filmed performance

Blind Faith's debut gig was in front of a cool 100,000 people on a warm day in Hyde Park. Since June 7th, 1969, when this concert took place, footage shot that afternoon has never been seen in its entirety. On September 19th the entire concert will be released on DVD for the very first time. Hyde Park 1969 is the only Blind Faith DVD available on the market.

Fusing the psychedelic blues of Eric Clapton and the soulful vocals and keyboards of Steve Winwood, with Rick Grech on bass and the phenomenal Ginger Baker on drums, fans at that historic performance were treated to a selection of timeless tracks including “Presence of the Lord,” “Can’t Find My Way Home” and The Rolling Stones' classic “Under My Thumb.”

Hyde Park 1969 also boasts archive footage of the various members of Blind Faith performing within their earlier musical guises. Clips of Spencer Davis Group performing “I'm A Man,” Traffic's “Hole in My Shoe,” Family performing “Dim” and Cream performing “Sunshine of Your Love,” acts as an introduction to this phenomenal concert event. Hyde Park 1969 also includes a comprehensive discography for all the members of Blind Faith pre-1969, plus a collection of rare photos set to the sounds of “Well All Right.”

Often referred to as rock’s first “Super Group,” Blind Faith’s first – and only – album topped both the UK and US Charts in 1969, with a sold out tour in support. After the band’s last date, they never performed or recorded together again.
