Blind Faith - London and Stockholm 1969

This is two concerts from Blind Faith from 1969. The group debuted at a free concert at London's Hyde Park on 7th June 1969. This version of that concert comes from a 'Mid Valley Records' CD bootleg and in our opinion has a better audio track than the DVD film of the concert released in 2006. The second concert was recorded at the Konserthallen/Liseberg, Nöjespark/Göteborg, Sweden, on the 18th June 1969. The audio source was an audience based reel to reel tape recorder, and considering the age etc is really very good quality. The beginnings of Blind Faith date from mid-1968, with the break-up of Cream. In retrospect as the first "super-group", Cream had become a financial powerhouse, selling millions of records within a few years and raising the group's (and each member's) repertoire to international popularity. Despite that success, the band was crumbling from within due to frequent animosity between Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, with Eric Clapton doi

This is Eric Clapton during the first leg of his 1985 Behind the Sun - North American Tour. During the mid 1980's, Eric Clapton recorded two albums produced by Phil Collins, and spent much of that period touring. Having overcome his addictions, his performances were fresh and energised, as this concert demonstrates. The concert was recorded at the Civic Center, Hartford, Connecticut (United States) on the 1st May 1985.
