Album Notes and Credits
The BEST OF STUDIO ONE series chronicles the influential role record producer C.S. "Coxsone" Dodd and his recording studio, Studio One, had on popular Jamaican music.
Producer: C.S. Dodd.
Compilation producer: Chris Wilson.
Recorded at Studio One, KIngston, Jamaica. Includes liner notes by Chris I-Tone.
With a mere 12 tracks and clocking in at under 40 minutes, this album is certainly not full up, as for the rest of its title, well that is a less-contentious claim. This is the second volume of classic cuts from Coxsone Dodd's legendary Studio One label and includes pocket bios of each of the artists, though infuriatingly few release dates. The majority of the tracks date from the rocksteady era well into the roots age, although a couple bookend these periods, and the set bounces across the years and genres. Skanking nimbly between established legends and a number of now most-forgotten stars, hits, and rarities, every inclusion is a delight. The original version of Willie Williams' "Armageddon Time" (which the Clash later made their own), Joseph Hill pre-Culture with his debut single, and the Sound Dimension's instrumental title track (versioned by the Mighty Diamonds and then covered by Musical Youth for their U.K. hit "Pass the Dutchie") are all of particular note. Carlton and the Shoes' exquisite "Love Me Forever," a pairing of Delroy Wilson and Slim Smith for a fabulous ska duet, and the appearance of DJ Lone Ranger versioning Smith's "Rougher Yet" are also welcome. The rest of the album is no less extraordinary. Hopefully, Heartbeat will continue releasing more material of this caliber. ~ Jo-Ann Greene
