Is Keith Hudson in the crowd in 1977 at the Savanna-La-Mar concert featuring Inner Circle and U Roy, a concert incorporated into the Heartland Reggae Video? I think this email sent to me by Josh Gaho, who was the cameraman filming the U Roy concert at Savanna-La-Mar, answers the question:
“I was onstage with an Eclair NPR camera bashing thru 9 minute magazines of 16mm film that day back in 77'.
U-Roy had the crowd going, my camera was rolling...
Keith suddenly appeared in my lens. Majestic.
He was suddenly the most authentic vibe in the house.
I wanted to honor him and feature him prominently.
And then he was gone.…”
