Hello there. Allow us to introduce you to your new favorite record: Jim Ford Harlan County! Recorded in 1969 in Los Angeles, CA, Harlan County is a true gem of the swamp/country-funk tradition. Tony Joe White, Bobby Charles, Charlie Rich…Jim Ford could hang with them all.
“Jimmy Ford is the baddest white man on the planet,” said Sly Stone of Jim Ford, and listening to Harlan County today who’s to argue? Needless to say, we’re honored to re-release these ten country-funk gems on CD and 180-gram wax (for the first time) with Ford’s original cover artwork, beautifully re-mastered audio (from the original tapes), extensive liner notes by Kurt Wolff (The Rough Guide to Country Music), and rare photos. These jams are fierce and fuzzed out, ready for the club or just a cruise in your powder blue Ford pickup. See ya out there.
