#7: Keith Hudson - Flesh of My Skin, Blood of My Blood (1974)
The darkest of dark roots that reggae has to offer. Not one to put on at a party. Rather, wait until all but a few of your guests go home, dim the lights, light some candles and a spliff and take the trip. A socio-political black [Jamaican] album, an indictment on colonial culture, a call to arms and revolution to blacks delivered with some great, great rhythms. Check the swamp-drenched understated funk rhythms of "Darkest Night", "Talk Some Sense" and the dub "My Nocturne". One of the top ranking, most unique reggae albums from one of its most under-appreciated talents.
