Full Show Friday: Blind Faith - Hyde Park 1969

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Blind Faith!

Here comes a famous show from the swinging heights of the 60's in London. Here's the super group Blind Faith doing one of their very few concerts. Before the show you actually get a bit of background about the players in the band if you don't know about the 4 members past.

Highlights include all of the amazing outfits worn in the some playing. The show proper doesn't get started til around the 11 minute mark and the first full visual performance is  "Sea of Joy".  "Can't Find My Way Home" is a great tune and Clapton plays electric on this live version which is cool, even though I have never been a big fan of Slowhand. A majestic offering of their excellent "Presence of the Lord" is dope and "Had To Cry Today" which closes things is amazing. The band was obviously a bit nervous as this is the bands first ever show which just happened to be in front of 100,000 people.

Enjoy the Scene man....
