Founded by Clement "Coxsone" Dodd, Studio One serves as a comprehensive guide to the history of reggae music. The music on Studio One Rockers covers all areas of reggae such as ska, rocksteady, roots and dancehall, all areas in which Studio One was a leader

Studio One Rockers contains many legendary Studio One tracks, compiled for the first time by Soul Jazz Records. From the early days of reggae, when the Skatalites developed a new ska sound in 1962, to today, Studio One has been the number one sound system in Jamaican music. Included on this compilation are classic ska tracks ("Phoenix City"), rocksteady ("Feel Like Jumping"), roots music ("Truth and Rights"), dancehall (Freddy McGregor, Michigan and Smiley) and many more

Many of Studio One's classic tracks are featured here. From Dawn Penn's legendary "No, No, No" to classics like Horace Andy's "Skylarking" and Marcia Griffith's "Feel Like Jumping." The Coxsone Soundsystem was one of the top three sound systems in Jamaica in the early 1960s, along with its competitors Prince Buster and Duke Reid

Studio One's catalog is probably the largest in Jamaican music and this release is the first in a series of Studio One compilations on Soul Jazz Records.
