Join Joe Isaacs (aka Drummie One), and the other remaining original members of the Kingston, Jamaica Studio One (1965-1968) rhythm section ‘The Soul Vendors’ (aka Sound Dimension, aka Soul Brothers): Brian Atkinson (bass player), and Hux Brown (guitarist) as they tell the story of how Rock Steady began in 1966 at Studio One. Also starring Bunny Wailer, Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith, Stranger Cole, Lester Sterling, Otis Gayle, The Heptones, Jack Radics, Ken Boothe, The Melodians, Willi Williams, and more. This film preview briefly introduces the last living original creators of a genre of music that has spread around the globe over the last 50 years and has spawned multiple record empires using the Soul Vendors beats without recognition. The goal of the preview is to generate funding to create further scenes in the film of the last living original members of Studio One’s rhythm section along with original Studio One singers: rehearsing together in the Studio for the first time since 1968, followed by performing together in a live Rock Steady/Reggae concert to incorporate into the film while interacting with other artists who have copied or lost rights to their music over time.
