Tribute to the King of Sound System - Sir "Coxsone" Dodd.
Clement "Coxsone" Dodd was a Jamaican sound system operator, record producer, and retailer. He was one of the first to record local talent, and an integral force in the development of ska and rocksteady. Having been involved in the development of reggae for more than 50 years, his contribution to the evolution of the island's music, from his Studio One recording facility, is simply enormous. Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd nurtured the career of nearly every
internationally renowned reggae artist.
Born Clement Seymour Dodd on January 26, 1932, in Kingston, Jamaica; died on May 4, 2004, in Kingston, Jamaica. More: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coxsone_Dodd
