ALLERGIC TO LOVE - THE LATER RECORDINGS
BEAR FAMILY RECORDS
When Bear Family’s L-P Anderson discovered the long lost and mythical countrysoul 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 instalment in Bear Family’s Jim Ford resurrection 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.
