Introduction by Steve Barrow.

This is a seriously heavyweight guide to the great Studio One Records, Reggae's greatest ever record label. From the extensive introduction by Steve Barrow (Author of the Rough Guide to Reggae/Founder of Blood & Fire Records), through hundreds of full size classic sleeves to the clossing 'collector's section' featuring rare silkscreens, alternate sleeves and more, Cover Art of Studio One brings you the artwork from Sir Coxsone's greatest achievement.

Features classic and rare sleeves from Horace Andy, The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo, Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, Bob Marley and The Wailers, Toots and The Maytals, Dillinger, Sugar Minott, Lone Ranger and many, many, many more. A goldmine of design, and a who's who of Reggae.

Features on the book:

The Quietus (A Guide to Soul Jazz and Studio One)

The Independent

BBC London - Robert Elms Radio Show (Steve Barrow and Stuart Baker talk about Studio One)
