On October 22nd, 2021, VP Music Group reissues reggae singer and producer Keith Hudson’s obscure and edgy masterpiece, Flesh Of My Skin, Blood Of My Blood on vinyl and CD, and for the first time, on digital streaming platforms.
The album, Hudson’s fourth, was released in 1974 to critical reception in London, paving the way for his future success and setting a foundation for his creative legacy, which was cut tragically short when he died from cancer in 1984. Hudson’s original records are to this day some of the most sought after by reggae vinyl collectors.
VP’s meticulous remaster of the original Mamba pressing of Flesh Of My Skin, Blood Of My Blood includes three tracks not on that original, plus extensive liner notes from Hudson biographer Vincent Ellis, combining to make this the definitive release of an obscure reggae classic.
What Broadcaster David Rodigan Says
“I remember we got the Sgt. Pepper album in the summer of 1967, and we spent all night listening to it, me and my friends. And I remember getting the Flesh Of My Skin album in the Winter of ‘75, and seeing that cover, and seeing that sleeve for the first time, and I sat and I kept staring at it … There is a haunting, mystical quality to it, it’s definitely in a realm of its own…”
