It’s out on vinyl and CD, but most importantly of all, Studio One Rocksteady on Soul Jazz Records is out today.
This is the latest instalment of Studio One gems and the work of Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd from Soul Jazz Records, this time focusing on the rocksteady sound, throwing in sleevenotes from Lloyd Bradley (author of the excellent Bass Culture book) and as we said, offering it up on both double heavyweight LP or CD. You also get a download code with the vinyl, which is nice to see.
