DVD review

The Studio One Story

The history of Clement "Coxsone" Dodd's legendary Jamaican studio is told through interviews, copious amounts of music and historical footage. There are also plenty of interesting diversions, such as a chapter on how vinyl records are made in a Kingston pressing plant. Early performances by the likes of The Skatalites and Ernest Ranglin are the icing on the irie cake.

DVD EXTRAS: Additional interviews with many of the artists featured, plus 16-track CD and 90-page booklet.

Rating: 4 / 10
