“Can’t Find My Way Home” comes from a supergroup of the highest order: Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech. They made just one album. The self-entitled album went to number one in the US and the UK as the band was breaking up.
The cover art for the UK album featured an 11-year-old girl, Mariora Goschen. The photo was of Goschen naked and holding a model spaceship (sending people to the moon was a huge topic in the timeframe). The US album cover featured alternative artwork.
According to Songfacts, the idea and photo came from Bob Seidemann. The photo of the girl and the spaceship represents humankind’s relationship with technology. The band has yet to pick a name, so Bob called the photo “Blind Faith.” Eric Clapton made the decision to name the band the same.
The band played their first gig by giving a free concert at Hyde Park on June 7th, 1969. 100,000 people showed up. Here’s a live concert video from the show:
Come down off your throne and leave your body aloneSomebody must change You are the reason I’ve been waiting all these years Somebody holds the key
Well, I’m near the end and I just ain’t got the timeAnd I’m wasted and I can’t find my way home
