    Studio One Jump Up

    In the 1960s Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd's legendary Studio One Records laid down the template for all reggae music, the equivalent of Jamaica's Motown Records. Artists who launched their careers there comprise an A-Z of the Jamaican music scene - Bob Marley and The Wailers, Burning Spear, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, Freddie McGregor, Marcia Griffiths, Horace Andy and many, many more. In the early releases featured here you will find the roots of Studio One's unique sound - from the first jump-up, boogie-woogie and shuffle recordings made in Jamaica in the late 1950s, as the artists emulated their American rhythm and blues idols - Louis Jordan, Roscoe Gordon, Fats Domino - through to the early Rastafari rhythms of Count Ossie, the righteous Baptist beat of Toots and the Maytals up to the joyous excitement of Ska with tracks by Studio One's young protÉgÉes Bob Marley and The Wailers and the all-mighty Skatalites. Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd first began recording music in the late 1950s, making one-off records to play on his Downbeat Sound System. These 'exclusive dup-plates' enabled him to reign supreme in the regular dancehall soundclashes of Kingston, fighting off the competition from rivals including Duke Reid the Trojan and Prince Buster. This new album traces the roots of the legendary label as it created the sound of the young independent Jamaican nation going into the early 1960s. Sir Coxsone used only the finest musicians in Jamaica for these recordings, including those players that would later become known worldwide as the Skatalites, Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Ernest Ranglin, Rico Rodriguez, Cluett Johnson and others. As fans clamoured to get a copy of these 'one-off' exclusive records, Clement Dodd eventually decided to start making them available commercially starting in 1959, and so began the birth of an empire.

    Studio One Story

    'Studio One Story' is a documentary this is both a staggering slice of musical history and a definitive guide to Studio One, Jamaica's greatest ever record company, and its legendary founder, Clement 'Coxsone' Dodd.


    Often described as the Motown of Jamaica, or 'The University Of Reggae', Studio One is where the careers of literally hundreds of reggae artists began: Bob Marley And The Wailers, Alton Ellis, The Heptones, Ken Boothe, The Skatalites, Burning Spear and Sugar Minott, to name but a few. Studio One is the 'foundation' label of Jamaican Reggae.


    One and a half years in the making, 'Studio One Story' is a truly unique documentary in which the late Clement Dodd gave unprecedented personal access to tell the previously untold story of how Studio One literally shaped the rise of reggae music from the 1950s onwards through to the late 1970s.


    This is the true story of reggae music and its Jamaican roots told from the inside: From the rise of Kington's sound systems in the 1940s and 1950s, through to the evolution of a Jamaican music industry (and Studio One's dominance) in the 1960s and the worldwide success of reggae in the 1970s.
