Hudson is one of those 'cult' fugures in Jamaican music that seem to be more popular outside of Jamaica than at home. However his catalogue of early 45's contained many hits, all present here along with some brilliant, more obscure recordings. His later solo work might not be to everyone's taste, however as this comp shows, he produced some of the best music in Jamaica in the pre-roots era (1970 - 73). This double cd contains music unobtainable elsewhere, and since Trojan's recent sale to Universal it's becoming scarce. If, like me, you already have the early 90's comp 'Studio Kinda Cloudy' don't pass this over - it contains nearly 3 times as many cut's and has excellent sleeve notes. Like some of the other double cd comps Trojan put out around 2004 (the Clancy Eccles set for example), this is a diffinitive picture of the artists work in that era, and as such is essential.

I already have the wonderful "Pick A Dub" by Keith Hudson, so I decided to investigate further. This is a Brill set of Keiths output as a producer. There are some of his solo efforts and a host of special guests. Several versons of the same backing track overdubbed by artists are present and it is eye opening as to how Keith manages to coax more and more out of each one.

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars MELODY MAKER FROM JAMAICA 7 Mar. 2005
By Locks Lion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THE HUDSON AFFAIR: This is an excellent retrospective of Keith Hudson's production work between the late sixties and middle seventies. Featuring more than 50 prime reggae cuts along with first-class packaging and sleeve notes, this has to be considered the definitive Hudson collection - although to be honest, there's not much competition out there. Setting out with Ken Boothe's great OLD FASHION WAY from 1969, THE HUDSON AFFAIR takes in early reggae classics from singers like Delroy Wilson, Alton Ellis, Horace Andy, and a virtual who's-who of foundation DJs, including Dennis Alcapone, Big Youth, U Roy and I Roy. There are also numerous instrumental and dub versions (check the brilliant MELODY MAKER), and plenty examples of Hudson's own "unique" microphone technique (a somber, not-always-in-tune blues wail from the lower registers), all of which make a convincing case as to why the producer was nicknamed the Dark Prince of Reggae. For the most part, this isn't the kind of breezy, rum and coke reggae promoted by the Jamaican tourist board. Instead, Hudson often prefers deep, voodoo-blues basslines accentuated by wheezing, spluttering organ parts and menacing guitar licks. There's no escaping the ominous overtones of THEME FROM SATAN SIDE, DARKEST NIGHT ON A WET LOOKING ROAD, or CLASS & SUBJECT, but there's also a lighter spiritual side to Hudon's work, as evidenced by Delroy Wilson's classic A PLACE IN AFRICA, and Hudson's own HEALING OF THE LAND and TORCH OF FREEDOM among others. There's an astonishing catalogue of music recorded here; a fantastic anthology that's long overdue. Really, you should buy this right away.

Looking for more early reggae goodness? Check out Pressure Sounds' recent Herman Chin-Loy (Aquarius) retrospective, AQUARIUS ROCK...also very, very excellent.
