The original 1974 release of Keith Hudson's 'Pick A Dub' showcased the enduring strength and pivotal importance of the development of reggae music. Keith Hudson's complete mastery of the genre and the unqualified praise that followed its release was fully justified. The album's austere sonic qualities are awe inspiring, the superb rhythms are given full rein, unencumbered by extra effects and studio trickery.

Keith Hudson succumbed to lung cancer in 1984, at age 38, robbing reggae of one its greatest, most adventurous, and unheralded producers and performers. The 1974 Pick A Dub set gets a glorious re-release from 17 North Parade, VP Records’ subsidiary label, as a double vinyl LP and cd both containing no less than 8 extra tracks, vocal cuts as well as instrumental/dub outtakes. Excellent liner notes are from Harry Wise. Keith Hudson’s unreleased vocal version of the song closes the album.
