Controversial Album Covers Pt. 4

Year: 1969

Blind Faith: Blind Faith

The Problem: The cover featured a topless pubescent girl, holding in her hands a silver space ship, which some perceived as phallic. Photographer Bob Seidemann used a girl who was reported to be 11 years old. The US record company issued it with an alternate cover which showed a photograph of the band on the front.

My Take: It’s kind of hard to take this picture and tie it back to Eric Clapton. My mind is having a hard time doing so, in fact. The two things just don’t add up. I just can’t see the singer of “Tears of Heaven,” “I Shot the Sheriff,” and “Change the World” in a band with an album cover like this. The alternative cover of this album does however. But not this!
