  • Keith Hudson - Brand

    Came across a copy of this LP today - had a listen too but it was £25! It was a white label LP - is this how it came out? I've done some light googling but can't turn up any info - should I be rushing back for this?

    Most reggae from that era came out first on white label (or "pre" as it was called). Not all would have got a subsequent full release but I think this did as (I think) it was sort of a concept thing where, contrary to the normal practice, he put out the (dub) versions first and then the vocals later or something like that.

      I think Pressure Sounds (linked to On-U) re-issued this a while back - maybe there's some further info about the original release in that direction....

        There was a CD reissue, now deleted, but I've never even found that let alone the vinyl... it's a dub 'prequel' to Rasta Communication, I think. I hope so. Otherwise I've been looking for the wrong album all this time. £25 sounds good to me.

          Lee, I bought that in about '78 form my local Virgin store. I took it back twice because it sounded like it was pressed on tarmac. I was new to all things dub and ended up accepting that Jamaican records always come with snap, crackle and pop

          White label. Needless to say I lost it in the great 'have to sell my collection to live' drama of the '80's

              Its really good stuff (I've got the Pressure Sounds CD) though I've a slight preference for the vocal versions. Probably a good buy if you like dub stuff. £25 might be a bit much for only a casual passing interest.
              Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.
