Label: Bear Family Records
When Bear Familys L-P Anderson discovered the long lost and mythical country-soul icon, Jim Ford, in a Mendocino County trailer park back in 2006, we got to hear his full life story which is more thrilling and adventurous than most Hollywood manuscripts. We also found stacks and stacks of master tapes and demos that Ford stored in a pile of old clothes on the floor of his trailer. The recordings are of extraordinary quality. To this date Bear Family has released five albums containing material compiled from this musical goldmine.
'Allergic To Love' is the sixth installment in Bear Familys Jim Ford ressurrection campaign series. The time is ripe for some truly fabulous mid-80s recordings. Jim told us that Sly Stone is featured on some of these tracks. The production is awesome, and so are the songs. Prepare yourself for a musical trip way-out of this world.
