Founded by Clement Dodd in 1962, Studio One has released records from the likes of The Wailers, Horace Andy, and the Skatalites.

No Man Is An Island “helps people navigate the mind-numbing record pressing maze of the legendary Studio One label,” explains Nixon.

“The book is the result of many years of collecting records, comparing fidelity and sound quality of pressings, and digging into Jamaican music history to understand the context of the sound production.”

No Man Is An Island  details what Nixon considers to be the best pressings of over 180 Studio One records, with an illustration and written text for each entry.
