Keith Hudson's classic 'Torch Of Freedom' album available on limited edition green vinyl

2 March 2013

Available to pre-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.

Press:
 "Mesmeric vocal cuts followed by their instrumental counterparts on this 1975 mix..." - 4/5, MOJO, Jan 2013
