Sir Coxsone - King Of The Dub Rock

Love this album cover. This dub album was released in 1975 on Safari records and also on Tribes Man records.

Sir Coxsone AKA Sir Coxsone Outernational was a UK Sound System named after Jamaica’s Coxsone Dodd that was started by Lloyd Coxsone (born Lloyd Blackford), after he moved to England from Jamaica. In the early 1970’s Coxsone was famous around London’s reggae scene and held resident nights at famous clubs like The Four Aces in Dalston and the Roaring Twenties club in Soho. I Roy also came across from Jamaica for a while during these years and acted as the DJ for the sound system.

It wasn’t long before Coxsone turned his hand to production and launched his own record label. As well as working with artists such as The Royals, he also made his name releasing two critically acclaimed dub albums called ‘King Of The Dub Rock’ and ‘King Of The Dub Rock Part 2′.
