stunning collection featuring over two & half hours of early Jamaican proto-Ska, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz, Rastafari & Gospel music.

it charts the earliest recordings produced by Clement Dodd, in the years before he launched the mighty Studio One Records, brought together here for the first time ever. Clement Dodd’s Sir Coxsone The Downbeat Soundsystem ruled Kingston’s dancehalls during this era & these recordings strongly reflect the influences of American rhythm & blues & jump jazz on Jamaican music fans.
