SUNDAY'S LONG PLAY

In the world of Progressive Rock, 1969 established progressive rock albums and bands as the number one most important music being produced. From The Beatles to the Stones to Led Zeppelin to Crosby, Stills and Nash to CCR to the Allman Brothers Band, everything being released seemed like magic music.

"The Long Play with Al Neff" is a continuing Sunday evening Feature on The GOAT. This year, Every Sunday Evening, Album Rock WXYG, The GOAT will feature a full album at 8:00 PM from the halcyon musical days of 1969.

Tune in next Sunday evening, February 24th, when The GOAT’S Feature Album will be the album by Blind Faith.
Blind Faith is the self-titled and only album by the English supergroup Blind Faith.

The album was released on vinyl in 1969 on Polydor Records in the UK and Europe, and on Atco Records in the US.
The band contained two-thirds of the popular power trio Cream, in Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton, working in collaboration with British star Steve Winwood of the Spencer Davis Group and Traffic, along with Ric Grech of Family. They began to work out songs early in 1969, and in February and March the group was in London at Morgan Studios, preparing for the beginnings of basic tracks for their album, although the first few almost finished songs didn't show up until they were at Olympic Studios in April and May under the direction of producer Jimmy Miller.

The album was a critical and commercial success, reaching number one on both sides of the Atlantic and receiving mostly positive reviews. On a list by Rolling Stone of "The 30 Greatest One Album Wonders", Blind Faith was at 14, while songs such as "Can't Find My Way Home" and "Presence of the Lord" were described as "incredible". Classic Rock Review spoke positively of the album, saying the critical acclaim it had received was "well-deserved”.
Tune In and Turn On, Next Sunday Evening, February 24th, and every Sunday evening at 8:00 PM for The GOAT'S "The Long Play with Al Neff".
