Song of the Week: Presence of the Lord

Blind Faith was a band composed of former members of Traffic (Steve Winwood) and Cream (Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker).  They released one album in 1969 and went on one tour.  Since they only had one album, their catalog was small and the band was forced to play Cream and Traffic songs to fill out their set lists.  The crowds reacted more to these songs than Blind Faith's songs, much to Clapton's frustration.  There are some great songs on the album and they still get radio play.

Perhaps Blind Faith's most famous song is "Presence of the Lord", which is this week's song.
