Straight No Chaser is the second studio album by British pop musician Mr Hudson, a follow-up to the last album released under the name Mr Hudson & The Library entitled A Tale of Two Cities. Straight No Chaser was released in the UK on 19 October 2009. It was released in the United States on 29 June 2010.
Mr Hudson and the Library were a British music group active from 2006 to 2007 and composed of Mr Hudson (vocals, guitar), Joy Joseph (steelpan, percussion, vocals), Torville Jones (piano), Robin French (aka Maps Huxley) (bass) and Wilkie Wilkinson (drums). The members hailed from Birmingham and London. Their music has been described as a fusion of old school reggae, rock and soul.
Musically the album is astounding, great musicianship with hip hop drums and programming that would make Just Blaze or Kanye West proud. But it's the quality of Hudson's lyrics, melodies and vocal delivery that make this so special. Honestly one of the hottest records to come out of England in a long time in my opinion. Take Us Somewhere New' is funky, uplifting, catchy and just plain dope.
Mr Hudson & The Library. Album A Tale of Two Cities. Beauty is in the eye Beauty is in the eye. Thankyou for this kiss It's all I really wanted If you believe that darling Then you'd better run. Thankyou for this kiss Thankyou for this kiss
