Anyone heard it? Used to have Ford Trax on vinyl before I stupidly gave it away :x

Still got the 12" of "Beach Bump" somewhere - a bouncy (and for Baby Ford atypical) housey-thing with the beats lifted from "Break for Love" and a Bobby O.-ish bassline...

I'm really racking my brains right now trying to remember, what the rest of the album was like...! Anyone out there, who's (still) got it...?

Great stuff. I can really recommend BFORD 9 (from 1992) too, by the way.

hey nick-is the b side of the bford1 oochy koochy 12" an etching made by peter himself-if so this is like having his autograph on his first record!!!

'i feel the power of my heart...i need to know your mind'

'ooo' the world is good-i like the first side more than the second (which has more vocals in the tracks) the us cd states that it was recorded in early '88
i thought it would have been in early '89

wow-i wish i could go to the acid on sea-BABY FORD,CEEPHAX (live duo 303 set), CYLOB and UNIQUE-3 original acid set... (on aphex's birthday)

I *might* be going to see Baby Ford (and A Guy Called Gerald) at Fabric on Saturday night - just depends if I can get away from a party early enough (or that I haven't drunk too much) to make it to Fabric! :P

I mentioned this on another topic earlier. I love Baby Ford, and i still get goose bumps when i hear Wigan. After all these years, it still sounds as good as when it did when it was first released. 8)



His cover of Chidren of the Revolution is also fantastic.

That is all. :wink:
