Keith Hudson aka the "Dark Prince of Reggae" was a Jamaican reggae artist and record producer born 1946 in Kingston. He is known for his influence on the dub movement. He was schoolmates with other future reggae stars such as Bob Marley, Delroy Wilson and Ken Boothe and he began working with Coxsone Dodd's sound system from an early age. In the studio Hudson often worked with brothers Carlton and Aston "Family Man" Barrett from Lee Perry's house band The Upsetters. After releasing the excellent Pick a Dub album in Jamaica, Hudson emigrated to the UK where he recorded the superb album The Black Breast has Produced Her Best: Flesh of my Skin: Blood of my Blood. This was reggae's first true concept album with the lyrics relating to black history and "conscious" themes. The album title was shortened to Flesh of my Skin: Blood of my Blood on later releases. Other outstanding albums include Entering the Dragon, Brand, Nuh Skin up Dub and Playing it Cool & Playing it Right.
