DVD-Rom review
Keith Hudson: An Illustrated Discography
Vincent Ellis & Jean Scrivener
July 1, 2012

As far as we know it's a unique event to be able to purchase a discography on a data DVD-Rom. However it makes a lot of sense as we are living in the 21st century with things such as the internet, tablets, smartphones, pc's, etc. playing a significant role in the daily life of millions of people and thus also reggae fans. This "Keith Hudson: An Illustrated Discography" can be seen as the forerunner of the soon to be published book on Keith Hudson by Vincent Ellis.

Twenty years in the making, "Keith Hudson, An Illustrated Discography" is an exhaustive, fully illustrated DVD-ROM devoted to reggae legend Keith Hudson. Reggae archivists Vincent Ellis and Jean Scrivener have devoted years of painstaking research to make this the most informative work ever published on the late, great Keith Hudson. Known as the "Dark Prince of Reggae", Keith Hudson produced many of the reggae stars of the 70's including U Roy, Dennis Alcapone, Alton Ellis, Big Youth, etc... He also produced his own remarkable albums including "Rasta Communication" and "Flesh Of My Skin", the 1974 concept album considered by many to be the reggae equivalent of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon". This amazing labour of love, in PDF form for use on MAC and PC, is an essential buy for Keith Hudson fans and avid vintage reggae aficionados alike.
