"My ambition ... was to recreate The Band in England, an idea I knew was a huge gamble, which is probably why I named the band Blind Faith," Clapton said in 2007.
Still, in 1994 photographer Bob Seidemann said the name came from the title of his famous photograph which graced the LP.
Seidemann had moved to England and was living in Chelsea after lodging with Clapton. In a 1999 advert to advertise his artwork, the photographer added that in 1967 an assistant of Robert Stigwood, Clapton's manager, called him to ask if he "would make a cover for the new unnamed group." Clapton didn't want to be the cover star. Seidemann wanted a spaceship to symbolise "human creativity" and "the ideal bearer, a young girl, a girl as young as Shakespeare's Juliet." She had to be naked.
He spotted a likely subject for his planned shot on an underground train - 12 year old Sula Goschen, dressed in school uniform. He gave her a card and her parents, Mayfair residents of Bohemian sympathies, gave their consent to the scheme, although it was finally Sula's sister Mariora who posed. Mariora was told by her family she would get "a young horse" as payment but instead got £40 from Stigwood, Clapton's management organisation.
Seidemann had previously kept secret details of the story and his model's identity. Mariora, aged 50, said in a 2007 interview that at the time of the shoot she was unaware she had any breasts. At least the money "paid for some hay and the travelling expenses".
The final image became one of the most enduring and controversial images of its time. The record company initially refused it until Clapton insisted.
The artist was told she had a trustingly naïve "blind faith" expression, which was exactly what he wanted to create. "It was created out of hope and a wish for a new beginning. Innocence propelled by BLIND FAITH ... I called the image 'Blind Faith' and Clapton made that the name of the band."
Clapton's version differs. "I immediately loved it [the image] because I thought it captured the definition of the name of our band really well - the juxtaposition of innocence and experience."
It also perfectly fitted Clapton's desire for anonymity after all the "Clapton is God" histrionics but self-doubt led to them self-destructing after just one LP.
Clapton further hid from this acclaim as Derek And The Dominos.
