Clement "Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One label had an enormous impact on reggae, ska, dub, rocksteady, and dancehall, and helped launch the careers of artists including Bob Marley, The Maytals, The Skatalites, and more.
Original copies of many of their releases go for big money on Discogs, but soon you'll be able to buy new re-pressings of many of the label's classics, as Yep Roc Music Group has partnered with Dodd's daughter Carol on a series of reissues.
The first release will be the Wailers' 1965 debut album The Wailing Wailers, including the original ska version of "One Love," which Bob Marley later re-recorded for his 1977 album Exodus. They'll be following that up with Money Maker, one of the rarest records in the Studio One back catalogue, featuring songs from The Heptones, Burning Spear, and others. More releases are in the works, including a box set.
The Wailing Wailers comes out May 27, and Money Maker hits the stores August 5, find out more info here.
