Biography

Soul Vendors
Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd’s studio band led by Jackie Mittoo during the 1960’s. Name was later changed to Sound Dimension. In 1967 Clement Dodd decided to take a group of musicians to England. Alongside the singers Alton Ellis and Ken Boothe, he asked Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo, Johnny Moore, Lloyd Brevett, Bunny Williams and Errol Walters. This group would be named The Soul Vendors and signalled the end of the short-lived Soul Brothers. Shortly afterwards Jackie Mittoo recorded his first solo album “Jackie Mittoo in London” with The Soul Vendors. For the next three years Jackie Mittoo came into his own, as in-house producer and arranger at Studio One, as well as his solo career.

    The Soul Vendors more than any other group defined the sound of what we consider to be reggae and dancehall music. Their music was the template for everything that followed throughout the 70s up till today.
