Blind Faith: “Can’t Find My Way Home”
ALBUM: Blind Faith
WRITER: Steve Winwood
A classic album cut from Blind Faith’s only studio album, “Can’t Find My Way Home” wasn’t released as a single, but found a home on the then-new format of free-form rock radio. One stat: It’s been covered more than 25 times. Another: The album went to number-one soon after its release.
In a mid-’80s interview, Steve Winwood had an unusual admission about his Blind Faith classic “Can’t Find My Way Home.” ”I played guitar on ‘Can’t Find My Way Home.” In fact, that does stand up very well. And I heard that recently after not having heard it for a good many years and I’ll be quite honest with you, I didn’t recognize it. I mean, I recognized it as my song, I didn’t recognize it as being Blind Faith. I thought someone [else] had cut it and it really did sound good.”
Blind Faith’s one and only album was released on June 22nd, 1969.
