Keith Hudson - The Black Breast Has Produced Her Best, Flesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood LP (VP Records, 2021)
"Often called reggae's 'Dark Prince,' Keith Hudson was one of the genre's most innovative left-of-center producers and vocalists, often mentioned in the same breath as Lee Scratch Perry. Hudson's fourth album, "Flesh Of My Skin, Blood Of My Blood," was released in 1974 to critical reception in London, paving the way for his future success and setting a foundation for his creative legacy. Compared favorably at the time to the work of Bob Marley & The Wailers, Hudson's sound was edgy and subversive, perfectly in tune with the punky reggae zeitgeist about to take over the world. This meticulous remaster of the original Mamba pressing includes three tracks not on the original, plus extensive liner notes from Hudson biographer Vincent Ellis, combining to make this the definitive release of an obscure reggae classic."
