Hudson And Ford - Worlds Collide (1975 uk, delicate glam soft rock, Vinyl edition)

“Worlds Collide” was the “difficult” third album by Hudson and Ford, more glam than their previous works, but not bad at all. Their single "When Love has Overgrown" tanked, and no other was attempted from the album. This was despite Hudson Ford's invocation in soft-rock numbers like as "As Hours Go By," a gentle piece with Latin percussion and echoing electric piano. The album develops sharper edges later, with the shrill "Jesus Said" and the satisfyingly jagged guitar in the glam rave-up of "Petro Rock." All in all an  enjoyably release.

2. Mechanics - 3:28
3. When Love Has Overgrown - 3:48
4. As Hours Go By - 3:01
5. Bootleg - 3:11

7. Day Without Love - 4:44
8. Petro Rock - 3:20
9. Mile High City - 3:37
10. Keep Me Rolling - 4:07
