BACK IN PRINT ON BLACK VINYL!!! What happens when a musically minded country boy from rural Kentucky heads to the Golden State and makes an album of blue-eyed soul with DR. JOHN, JIM KELTNER (John Lennon) and JAMES BURTON (Elvis Presley) as his back-up band? Well, if the stars were aligned, singer songwriter JIM FORD would’ve had a major hit on his hands. As it was, Harlan County, released in 1969 on the minor label Sundown Records, simply fell through the cracks between monster selling titles by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Despite being allied with some of the biggest names in the business and a deft musical touch—Ford wrote songs for Bobby Womack (“Harry Hippie”), Aretha Franklin, P.J. Proby, The Temptations, and even appeared on Sly & the Family Stone’s There’s a Riot Goin’ On— Ford never struck gold as a solo artist and eventually left the often cutthroat music business for a quieter life at the turn of the 1980s. Armed with a powerful whiskey fueled voice, down home rhythms, tight horn section, and occasional spectral orchestration from Gene Page (The Righteous Brothers, Barry White, Marvin Gaye), Harlan County is ripe for reappraisal.
