Sevens From Studio One

For many years Studio One was pretty much inactive with very little appearing in the way of reissues. Even when they were busy in the 90’s the most interesting re-releases were put out on CD/LP by Heartbeat in the US and Soul Jazz in the UK. When reissue singles did appear these tended to be the same old tunes over and over again, often badly pressed using worn out old stampers and with cheap looking label designs.

Over the last couple of years things have changed, there have been some great quality reissue 7″s from both Rock A Shacka and Dub Store in Japan and a steady increase in the number of singles direct from Studio One, these Jamaican issues have really peaked in 2013 with a huge number of 45’s coming out. I understand that the majority have been organised by Clement Dodd Junior though some record dealers and other experts have been involved in advising on what tunes to repress. The good news is that this means they have frequently gone beyond the most obvious tunes with many rare and hard to find indemand cuts from the 60’s and 70’s reappearing for the first time on 7″. Another positive is the use of many classic Studio One label designs and variations and not just the usual cheap looking black print on white Coxsone and Studio One labels that were pretty much the only ones used for 20 or so years. Indeed on some issues original label stock has been found and used, these look great but have encouraged some unscrupulous ebay sellers to pass them off as original presses (more of that in a future article).

Unfortunately the pressing quality on these releases has not improved a great deal with many of them suffering from crackle and hiss, one reason for this seems to be the continued use of worn out and damaged original stampers. Bizarrely enough the use of these is now touted as some kind of badge of authenticity when the reality Studio One always used old and often worn out stampers for reissues when they could.

Below is an attempt to list as many of the of Studio One re-issue singles that have been put out so far in 2013 as possible. The approximate month of release is given if known. All credits will hopefully be shown as on the label even if this is incorrect or badly spelled.

These releases tend to sell for around Β£6-Β£8. As the quality can be so varied you are strongly advised to listen before you buy. Extensive use has been made of sales lists by Phil Enthucol and Dub Vendor in producing this list, both are excellent sellers and highly recommended if you want to buy any of these releases.

  • Lloyd

    I have the original issue of Frenemies and bought the recent one as a spare, I would say it’s definitely a repress, it’s a noisier press and the labels feel different

  • Early on in the series it was pretty much a take what is pressed situation, but now the prime importer gets Test Presses of a percentage of the titles so we can vet the quality, so there are a number of titles that we have rejected as just too poor to press (For example we returned the press of Alton Ellis’ ‘A Fool’ as the stampers were completely knackered) and others where we felt a compromise was worthwhile due to the extreme rarity of the tune (For example The Wailers ‘Lemon Tree’ which is pressed from the original UK stamper originally manufactured on behalf of R&B Records of Stamford Hill, sadly this gets noisy in the second half of the tune, but we felt that at a modest retail most collectors would accept that compromise rather than carry on the endless search for a somewhat pricy (and potentially noisy anyway) elusive original UK pre-release copy (The only way the tune was issued on 45 until now as far as I am aware). Likewise we find it frustrating when with certain tunes the correct original dub has not been available but in the event the original B-side stamper is lost/damaged we are limited to what the Jamaican end of the re-issue programme is prepared to do.

    I am aware another party has mastered a number of other titles and manufactured stampers to re-issue a number of key titles in conjunction with Carol Dodd, however that project seems to have stalled at present in spite of a 4 four figure investment on mastering and stampers (Which I believe are currently in New York with Carol)

    At present the JA end of the re-issue project is working through the store of stampers they have available and has no intention of manufacturing new stampers so as far as the Jamaican series of re-issues is concerned we are limited to what is in storage and useable at present.

    It is also worth noting that within the last few days we have been notified that once the current stock of certain titles runs out there will be no repress as the JA end of the operation want to concentrate on what other titles exist in the ‘Stamper store’ so if you don’t buy them now you may well miss out (Some titles are already out of press)
