Blind Faith were one of the most hotly anticipated acts to emerge on the British rock scene in the late 1960's; featuring Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker from the recently disbanded Cream, Steve Winwood from the Spender Davis Group and Traffic, and Rick Grech from Family, Blind Faith were the first "supergroup" comprised entirely of leading members of well established bands, and their first public performance, a free concert in London's Hyde Park, drew a crowd of 100,00 listeners. A camera crew was on hand to record Blind Faith's maiden voyage, and Blind Faith: London Hyde Park 1969 presents the complete performance for the first time. In addition to a short documentary prelude which offers background on the group and the mood in England in the tumultuous year of 1969, this film features the short-lived band performing eight songs, including "Can't Find My Way Back Home", "Presence of the Lord", "Sea of Joy", "Means To An End", and covers of Buddy Holly's "Well All Right" and the Rolling Stones' "Under My Thumb".
