'Studio One Story' DVD/CD/LP, to order please contact us at email@example.com
Soul Jazz Records are reissuing their long-out of print DVD/CD/LP 'Studio One Story" (filmed in 2002) , now available for the first time as well as a stand alone DVD. The DVD is being issued as a prelude to the forthcoming deluxe-hardback book 'Original Cover Art of Studio One Records' released by Soul Jazz Records in the autumn celebrating next years 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence.
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.
This amazing 4 hour documentary (including over an hour of extras) was filmed on location in Kingston, Jamaica and features interviews with Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, Sugar Minott, Denis Alcapone, The Ethiopians, Sylvan Morris, Johnny Moore, Lone Ranger, King Stitt and many others.
The DVD also includes rare footage of The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo, Count Ossie, Marcia Griffiths and others.
The six editions are as follows:
1)DVD plus CD plus 100 page book. (Region free PAL DVD)
2)DVD plus 2xLP plus free insert booklet (with all text) (with region free PAL DVD)
3) Stand Alone DVD (region free PAL DVD)
