There were two sides to Keith Hudson’s musical career, his producing and his singing. Production wise he was top flight and he enjoyed considerable success from the late sixties well into the 70?s. As a singer he was at best an aquired taste and it’s no great surprise that he recorded only for himself and no other producer employed him for this “talent”.
Record Store Day is fast approaching. That time of year when super exclusive and rare records are brought back to life for just one day. Well everyday is record store day at my house. Always sort of hated the idea just on the idea that we need to promote only one day but I think I’ve come around recently with some of the stuff they’ve been producing. 2011 featured a Trojan UK exclusive release from Toots & The Maytals doing an alternative cut to ‘Do The Reggay’ as ‘Do The Boogaloo’. There were 2012 releases from Lee Perry, The Specials, The Beat, Keith Hudson, and Peter Tosh.
