This is all about putting the record straight regarding the true
origin and development of the Reggae sound, as told by the original studio musicians responsible for the many hits that
have originated out of the country, called Jamaica.
This site is the brainchild of Brian (Bassie) Atkinson and Joe (Drummie) Isaacs, two of the original members of the
hit producing studio band, SOUL VENDORS (aka Sound Dimension, Soul Brothers, Jamaica All-Stars, Brentford All-Stars, The Jets)
from Jamaica Recording Studio (also called Studio One).
This site has been endorced by the 'Studio One' legendary producer and owner: Sir Clement Dodd
and Mrs. Dodd.
Sir Clement Dodd and The Soul Vendors made it possible for the reggae sound to be heralded to
the ends of the earth, by brother Bunny (Wailer) Livingston,
(the late Bob Marley & Peter Tosh),
the I-Three's (Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt & Marcia Griffiths), Jimmy Cliff, Monty Alexander,
Ernest Ranglin, Maxy Priest, Johnny Nash, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder...
just to name a few.
