Day 57 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Keith Hudson - In The Rain
What could be more appropriate than a song about rain right now? We here on the east coast of the U.S. are experiencing some of the weirdest winter weather ever! When we should be bundling up to merely step outside the door we are going coat-less, hell on Christmas Eve I was wearing flip flops and breaking a huge sweat just stuffing the stockings like it was the end of June. But anyway, let's get to today's tune... we're gonna start the next week with some dub and this one is called "In The Rain" and comes from the 1974 album Pick A Dub by Keith Hudson. The album was originally released on the Klik label but was reissued in 1994 on Blood & Fire. Lloyd Bradley, author of This is Reggae Music, suggest that the album is "one of the supreme heavyweight champion dub sets" and even went so far as to include it on a 2007 list of "1000 Albums to Hear Before You Die." With the Barrett Brothers and King Tubby at the helm this is completely badass! Dig it!
