The Story
Blind Faith's debut gig was in front of a cool 100,000 people on a warm day in Hyde Park. Since 7th June, 1969 when this concert took place, it has never been seen in its entirety. This is a unique opportunity to see the world's first Supergroup perform for the very first time. On "London Hyde Park 1969", the audience gathered were filled with anticipation awaiting Blind Faith's debut. The newly formed collective of four virtuoso musicians who individually were already rock royalty, were the talk of the town and expectations both within the band and out amongst the counter-culture generation crowd, were high. 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, they didn't disappoint. The set may have lasted just over 40 minutes long, but fans were treated to a selection of timeless tracks including "Presence Of The Lord", "Sleeping In The Ground" and The Stones classic "Under My Thumb".

"London Hyde Park 1969" also boasts archive footage of the various members of Blind Faith performing within their earlier musical guises. Clips of the Spencer Davies Group performing "I'm A Man", Traffic's "Hole In My Shoe", Family performing "Dim" and Cream with "Sunshine of Your Love", act as a gentle introduction to the main concert event.

Special DVD features include: Dolby Digital Stereo, Archive Footage/Promo Videos, Photo Gallery, Discography.
