The Album Cover Art of Studio One Records: The Original
The Album Cover Art of Studio One Records: The Original
As iconic as Motown was to soul, or Blue Note for jazz, the legendary Jamaican reggae label Studio One was the creation of one of music's greatest impresarios, Clement Sir Coxsone Dodd. Throughout the 1950s, Dodd's Downbeat Soundsystem was the most important sound system in downtown Kingston's burgeoning dancehall scene, fighting off the competition of Duke Reid, Tom the Great Sebastian and others. Dodd began producing his own records in the late 1950s and in 1963, the year after Jamaican Independence, he launched Studio One. Once described by Chris Blackwell as the University of Reggae, Studio One is by far the most important record label in the history of reggae music, its artists comprising an A-Z of Jamaican music: it was there that Bob Marley and the Wailers, Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, Freddie McGregor, The Skatalites, Marcia Griffiths, Burning Spear, The Heptones, Toots and the Maytals and many more artists became stars. This deluxe hardback volume is the first ever to tell the story of Studio One and the many artists whose careers it launched. It features hundreds of stunning full-size Studio One record cover designs and original artwork, as well as rare and exclusive photographs, original flyers and artist interviews. As Jamaica approaches its fiftieth anniversary of independence, Studio One Records offers a timely look at reggae music's most legendary record label and the artists and musicians that it made famous.

Record Collecting for Girls: Unleashing Your Inner Music Nerd, One Album at a Time
Record Collecting for Girls: Unleashing Your Inner Music Nerd, One Album at a Time
Record Collecting for Girls is an invitation for all of you stereophiles (who happen to be female), to make your own top-five lists, and then, armed and ready with the book's fun facts, to argue their merits to the ever-present boys' club of music snobs in your life. --Sarahbeth Purcell, author of Love Is the Drug and This Is Not a Love Song You never leave home without your iPod. You're always on the lookout for new bands, and you have strong opinions when it comes to music debates, like Beatles vs. Stones. For years, you've listened to guys talk about all things music, but the female perspective has been missing. Until now. Drawing on her personal life as a music enthusiast, as well as her experience working at MTV and in radio, Courtney E. Smith explores what music can tell women about themselves--and the men in their lives. She takes on a range of topics, from the romantic soundtracks of Romeo and Juliet to the evolution of girl bands. She shares stories from her own life that shed light on the phenomenon of guilty pleasures and the incredible power of an Our Song. Along the way, she evaluates the essential role that music plays as we navigate life's glorious victories and its soul-crushing defeats. Finally, here is a voice that speaks to women--because girls get their hearts broken and make mix tapes about it, too. Courtney Smith has smarts and sass in spades. Her insights are as hilarious as they are thoughtful, and when you finish reading this book, you'll feel like you just got home from a perfect night out with your best friend. And you'll want to listen to Prince. At full volume. --Megan Jasper, Executive Vice President, Sub Pop Records
