Description

Keith Hudson – Flesh Of My Skin, Blood Of My Blood

Incredible Basic Replay reissue back in print.

Words from Basic Replay: “Flesh Of My Skin is the most hallowed of all those reggae albums which remain unavailable, and Keith Hudson’s key achievement in a career launched when as a fourteen-year-old he recorded with members of The Skatalites on his Shades Of Hudson rhythm.

Originally released in 1974, after a series of solid-gold productions for Ken Boothe, Delroy Wilson, John Holt, U-Roy and the rest, it projects Hudson’s removal from JA to London and New York studios and transatlantic audiences, and inaugurates a sequence of albums – classics like Pick A Dub, Brand, Playing It Cool – which show his troubled experimentalism better suited to the LP than the cardinal 7″ reggae format. Anchored here by Santa Davis and George Fullwood from the Soul Syndicate – alongside musicians like Augustus Pablo, Count Ossie and Leroy Sibbles – Hudson’s mood is tormented and dazed, as on titles like Darkest Night, My Nocturne and Testing My Faith he struggles for Black senses of commitment – political, existential, religious – at its breaking point.

Magnificently and deadly serious, hauntingly unique, unmissable and unforgettable.”
