Rasta Communication’ is released in the UK on the Greensleeves label immediately following ‘Brand.’ Like it’s predecessor, ‘Rasta Communication’ is lost in relative obscurity for more than 30 years. That is until April 24, 2012, when Greensleeves re-issues the ‘masterpiece’ completely remastering and expanding the original ten-track album to a double-disc 27 track deluxe edition. The second disc includes dub companions including the previously unreleased dub to “I Broke The Comb.” It also offers two Keith Hudson 12” singles and rare Jamaican single mixes of “Rasta Country” and “Jonah.”

Recorded at Randy’s, Channel One & Chalk Farm with a final touch from Prince Jammy at King Tubby’s studio, ‘Rasta Communication’ features some of the most talented musicians Jamaica has to offer including drum and bass dynamic duos Family Man & Carlton Barrett and Sly & Robbie. Hudson, always the innovator, even enlists celebrated American composers Paul Simon and Frank Zappa.

The album can be described as druggy and hypnotic with very sparse riddims that are urgent in their delivery. A spacey album, Hudson allows the musicians plenty of room to flourish and experiment. ‘Rasta Communication’ is a very accessible and refined album, unlike the dark and heavy ‘Flesh of My Skin, Blood of my Blood‘ and Hudson’s other early releases. It is the perfect Keith Hudson album for the new listener as it contains all of the elements that make a Hudson album great: groove-centered, atmospheric sound, thundering drum and bass, and that one-of-a-kind voice, calling you deep into the woods for another murderous trip.
