Legendary “dark prince” of Jamaican dub reggae (and former dentist) Keith Hudson’s groundbreaking 1981 LP Playing It Cool & Playing It Right returns to vinyl once again via Basic Channel’s Basic Replay reissue imprint. As its anonymous brown-paper sleeve suggests, the LP is shrouded in mystery — nobody can say for sure who provides the gorgeous cooing backing vocals on ‘Not Good For Us’ and ‘California’ — which only makes the spacious delay on Hudson’s vocals all the more appealing.
