  • The breathtaking compilation "Coxsone's Music" spans three CDs or four vinyls (including free download code). That makes a total of two and a half hours of music. However, this does not come from Studio One, which of course immediately comes to mind when thinking of Clement Dodd. Rather, this is "The First Recordings Of Sir Coxsone The Downbeat 1960-63", as the compilation's subtitle reveals. We don't get to hear reggae or dub with this, but tracks that Sir Coxsone put to tape with his Downbeat sound system in the pre-Studio One days (founded in 1963), that is proto-ska, rhythm & blues, jazz , gospel and Rastafarian music.

    The 46 tracks are among the earliest recordings Dodd ever produced and streamed on various labels. They are presented together for the first time on "Coxsone's Music 1960-1963". Included are Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Derrick Harriott, Owen Gray Clancy Eccles, Count Ossie, Monty Alexander, The Blues Busters, Ernest Ranglin and Rico Rodriguez - big names today, but emerging talents in the early 1960s. If you want to get into the pre-reggae era, you can't get around this compilation.
