Keith Hudson Rasta Communication on LP
A legend in his lifetime Keith Hudson explored his own highly individual musical path for 25 years. For much of that time his idiosyncratic approach was "neither profitable nor popular" but his standing has never ceased to strengthen and grow since his tragic, untimely death. Hudson's approach to music making was always innovative and inspired and, in a genre renowned for its eccentric personalities, there are few who are able to match his enviable reputation as a record producer, songwriter and singer.
This serious, dignified 1978 album was first released on Joint Records in New York and then given a worldwide release through Greensleeves Records in London. The soul communicator had become the Rasta communicator and tracks such as "I'm Not Satisfied," "I'm No Fool" and "I Won't Compromise" defined Keith's revolutionary artistic stance. Sombre and brooding, concentrating on themes of black consciousness, "righteous and proud" and packed with an intensity that defied all preconceptions of how a singer should sound, Rasta Communication was immediately acclaimed as a classic.
