"The history of the Studio One label – and its subsidiaries – covers most of the significant developments in post-war Jamaican music, from the earliest boogies and shuffles (the Jamaican variant of US rhythm and blues) right through to the dancehall period of the early 1980s. Furthermore, the rhythms invented by the musicians at Studio One in the late 1960s are still being copied and used in dancehall music of the present era. The label was founded by Clement Dodd, and under his direction was responsible for discovering and recording most of the important artists in Jamaican music, many of whom would acknowledge the crucial contribution of Studio One to their careers. By the time Clement Dodd had finished his work, Brentford Road in central Kingston, the location of the famous studio, had been renamed 'Studio One Boulevard' and he had earned one of his country's highest honors, the Order of Distinction, for his services to music."

Steve Barrow, excerpted from "Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd and the Rise of Studio One Records."

Studio One Records

Original Cover Art of the Legendary Label

Published by Soul Jazz Books
Edited by Stuart Baker.

Featured album cover is reproduced from <a href="http://www.artbook.com/9780955481772.html">Studio One Records</a>.As iconic as Motown was to soul, or Blue Note for jazz, the legendary Jamaican reggae label Studio One was the creation of one of music's greatest impresarios, Clement “Sir Coxsone” Dodd. Throughout the 1950s, Dodd's Downbeat Soundsystem was the most important sound system in downtown Kingston's burgeoning dancehall scene, fighting off the competition of Duke Reid, Tom the Great Sebastian and others. Dodd began producing his own records in the late 1950s and in 1963, the year after Jamaican Independence, he launched Studio One. Once described by Chris Blackwell as the “University of Reggae,” Studio One is by far the most important record label in the history of reggae music, its artists comprising an A-Z of Jamaican music: it was there that Bob Marley and the Wailers, Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, Freddie McGregor, The Skatalites, Marcia Griffiths, Burning Spear, The Heptones, Toots and the Maytals and many more artists became stars. This deluxe hardback volume is the first ever to tell the story of Studio One and the many artists whose careers it launched. It features hundreds of stunning full-size Studio One record cover designs and original artwork, as well as rare and exclusive photographs, original flyers and artist interviews. As Jamaica approaches its fiftieth anniversary of independence, Studio One Records offers a timely look at reggae music's most legendary record label and the artists and musicians that it made famous.
