Remarks Studio One, the legendary Jamaican label that pioneered the reggae, ska and dancehall crazes and sparked the careers of Bob Marley, Alton Ellis, Jackie Mittoo and dozens of other reggae luminaries, have released thousands of essential reggae classics over its unrivaled six-decade long history. The label also had many iconic imprints, with one of the most sought-after being singles issued on the Coxsone imprint (named after Studio One founder and “father of reggae music” Coxsone Dodd) with instantly recognizable blue labels. These singles have come to be known as “Blue Coxsone” in collector’s circles and fetch tidy sums given their limited release and rarity.

In the later part of 1967, Studio One releases on the iconic blue Coxsone label began appearing in the UK. The run of singles eventually numbered over 100 and included many of the label’s top rocksteady output from artists like Ken Boothe, The Heptones, Bob Andy, Joe Higgs, and the legendary Soul Vendors, who all extended the swinging scene in Kingston, Jamaica all the way to England. The Soul Vendors themselves were fresh from a visit to the UK backing up a set of the label’s artists.

This limited edition box set features six rare singles all reproduced on the original Blue Coxsone label featuring essential tunes from Joe Higgs, Winston Jarrett, The Sound Dimension, The Melodians and other Studio One icons. Also included is a previously unreleased Blue Coxsone single, CS 7073 - The Sound Dimension covering “Walk Don’t Run” b/w Trevor Clarke’s “Giving Up on Love.”
