wackies

Protege of Coxsone Dodd at Studio One in the mid-60’s, Lloyd Barnes moved to New York and established his own studio, Wackie’s, home of many seminal roots and dancehall recordings of the late 70’s and early 80’s, including Dance Hall Style by Horace Andy. Wackie’s closed in the late 80’s, but has since reemerged at a new Bronx location, complete with record shop on the first floor.
