Soul Jazz Records presents "The Story Of Studio One" (incomplete). Studio One is considered the "Motown" of Jamaica, and with the late Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd (1932-2004) at the helm...who's to argue this point? Producing some of the best riddims to ever bless a sound system, Studio One was behind acts like The Skatalites, The Ethiopians, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Burning Spear, Toots & the Maytals, John Holt, Horace Andy, Ken Boothe, Freddie McGregor, Dennis Brown, Jackie Mittoo, Gladiators, Michigan & Smiley, Wailing Souls, Dillinger, Delroy Wilson, Heptones, Johnny Osbourne, Marcia Griffiths (of the I-Threes), Sugar Minott, The Abyssinians, Culture, Soul Vendors, Lone Ranger, and Alton Ellis. Plantains right? Yall know Prince Buster, he came up under Dodd's and was schooled to the game by the man...Coxsone Dodd was the foundation, literally. Sound system royalty would be an understatement. From the team at Hey Rudie...we owe you our gratitude.
