Torch Of Freedom LP VERSION - Keith Hudson

Torch Of Freedom LP VERSION
Available to order now, and exclusive to Cherry Red mail order - Keith Hudson's classic 'Torch Of Freedom' album on limited edition green vinyl. Only 300 copies available, so order quickly to avoid disappointment!

Whether you know him as The Dark Prince Of Reggae, the Ghetto Dentist or just plain Keith, the legendary artist and producer Keith Hudson created some of the most idiosyncratic, innovative and atmospheric reggae that ever came out of Jamaica and Hot Milk Records are proud to present the uber- rare "Torch Of Freedom" as its first ever release.
Hot Milk is a new label dedicated to re-issuing lost and hard to find roots reggae, dub and dancehall albums from the golden age of Jamaican music.
Hudson was famous for his productions for reggae greats such as U Roy (Dynamic Fashion Way), Big Youth (S.90 Skank)and Dennis Alcapone (Spanish Amigo) before moving on to concentrate on his own singing. What followed was a groundbreaking and completely unique body of work that was arguably never bettered by any reggae producer.
"Torch Of Freedom" is one more missing piece of the Keith Hudson discography that has gained a large following and re-issue treatment in the last few years after being out of print for so long.
"Torch Of Freedom"fits neatly besides Keith Hudson's other classic albums such as "Pick A Dub", "Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood" and "Playing It Cool, Playing It Right"and shows the unique sound and vision of what Hudson's work as an artist and producer was all about.
Sleeve notes are provided by well-respected reggae journalist John Masouri whose previous credits include the books "Wailing Blues: The Story Of Bob Marley's Wailers" and "Steppin' Razor: The Life Of Peter Tosh" and sleeve notes for re-issues of artists such as Dennis Brown, Black Uhuru and Israel Vibration.
Originally released in 1975 this reissue contains the original artwork and has been unavailable for many years.
Musicians include Carlton and Family Man Barrett, Earl Chinna Smith, Robbie Shakespeare, Candy McKenzie and The Soul Syndicate Band.

The Good, The Bad and The Upsetters: Vinyl Edition
•    Performer, producer, singer, mixer, sound alchemist, eccentric, The Upsetter Lee "Scratch” Perry born Rainford Hugh Perry in 1936 , Kendal, Jamaica, is one of the most recognisable and well known characters of the reggae world.

•    The UK version of "The Good, The Bad and The Upsetters” was released by Trojan Records in 1970, and although it had the Upsetters name on it, Lee Perry had no hand in its conception or production. Angered that an Upsetters album was released without his involvement, Perry issued his own version of the album back home in Jamaica using the same Trojan album artwork but with totally different songs and a new stickered tracklist on the back.

•    Features brand new artwork and reissued for the first time with permission from Lee Perry himself

•    This 1971 album shows the beginnings of Lee Perry’s trademark production eccentricities with rum punch drunk steel pan drums, doom mongering monophonic synth lines, Upsetters style organ skanks and sparse arrangements that would help develop the building blocks of dub.

•    Contains 13 instrumental versions and a DJ version of ‘Same Thing All Over.’
