Studio One is releasing a new Coxsone Records 6 x7” box set of rare singles released on the sub-label, appropriately titled The Blue Coxsone Box Set, this July.
The sub-label takes takes its name from Studio One founder and producer Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd, with its “Blue Coxsone” nickname emerging from the signature blue label that adorned releases.
Alongside rare tunes from Joe Higgs, Winston Jarrett, Zoot Simms, and The Melodians, The Blue Coxsone Box Set also includes a previously unreleased single – featuring The Sound Dimension’s cover of The Venture’s ‘Walk Don’t Run’, and Trevor Clarke’s ‘Giving Up On Love’ on the flip.
