Keith & Tex - Freedom
No Jamaican singing duo has enjoyed a comparably resilient, prolific, and successful partnership as Keith Rowe and Phillip “Tex” Dixon.
Known worldwide for their 1967 signature hit “Stop That Train” (a cover of the Spanishtonians 1965 ska song) and other original mega-popular anthems from the rocksteady era like “Tonight,” Keith & Tex, who befriended each other as teenagers, have been using the last two decades to make up for lost time—a near thirty-year stretch during which they were apart—separated due to divergent twists of fate including Keith’s immigration to the United States, and later, Tex’s to Canada.
Following their critically acclaimed 2017 album “Same Old Story”—produced by talented and versatile producer-musician Roberto Sanchez, with all instruments played by Sanchez and Sanchez’s studio band, “The Lone Ark Riddim Force,” at Sanchez’s A-Lone Ark Muzik Studio in Cuerto, Spain—“Freedom” follows the same successful formula; again produced by Sanchez, the album combines sweet, soulful, melodic harmonies, and mature lyrics with the masterclass musicianship of Sanchez and his band, stunningly recreating the authentic sound Jamaican music studios produced in the 1960s and 70s. As with any productive collaboration, their additional experience together and time spent complementing each other has only sharpened the final product. Moreover, Keith & Tex are only getting better with age—making “Freedom” shine like perhaps no other album yet in Keith & Tex’s extensive discography.
