WWW, September 2007 - It will have to go further than a presentation of what many know to be the classic Studio One Sound. There will have to be tracks that not many may have heard before, too.
No, making a crucial Studio One selection definitely ain't easy at all. But the Dub Organiser can do it, as this well-titled Podcast will establish once and for all!
Studio One Roots? This can mean different things for real.
What we have come to know as Roots Music, was obviously played by musicians who themselves had Roots as well. It's a matter of fact, that most Originators of Reggae somehow started off their musical path in Sir Coxsone's Studio, which would explain the title.
The music itself, obviously is Roots Music avant la lettre. Studio One was there before all these other Reggae Studios for the simple reason that Sir Coxsone Dodd was already running an established studio in Jamaica when Reggae was not even there.
The podcast doesn't go back that far in time, though.
There are some remarkable Dub Versions, nice DJ Toasting by U Roy and others, a heartical Burning Spear track that not many Spear fans may have heard before, and these are just a few highlights.
