Old timers and music history buffs may or may not remember Dodd Clement Coxsone’s Music City, a longtime wholesale and retail music shop with a wide selection of reggae records as well as sound systems and other genres of music.
Run by legendary Jamaican music producer Coxsone Dodd — the selfsame entrepreneur who founded hit record label Studio One in 1963, as the New York Times details — the shop closed at some point since Dodd’s death in 2004.
The shop is closed now; this Instagram photo recalls it decades ago, in its prime.
