R.I.P Syd Bucknor

One of the great producers and engineers of Jamaican music and believed to be related to Coxsone Dodd. The initials "S.B." in the matrix generally meant a great recording.

A short tribute by his friend, guitarist Cecil Smith:

Sid Bucknor passed away 9th May 2010 at 14:05. He died of Cancer at the St Charles Hospital, Ladbroke Grove London W10 6BA United Kingdom.

Sid was a giant in the music business. He was instrumental in the development of the Jamaican music sound, Ska, Rock Steady and Reggae. He was a great studio engineer, producer and songwriter. He helped to shape the sound of the music alongside the musicians of the time and pioneered new ways and techniques of capturing the feel and spirit of the music. His contributions to Jamaican music cannot be overlooked. Much of its overwhelming success can be directly attributed his creative genius and pioneering style. He was also a very patient teacher, and was always happy to pass on his knowledge and skills to anyone wishing to learn.

Sid worked with all of the greats in the Jamaican music industry. He recorded and mixed Catch a fire, Burning and Natty dread for Bob Marley and the Wailers. During his long and illustrious career he also recorded mixed or produced all of the other Jamaican greats: Toots and the Maytals, Desmond Dekker, Alton Ellis, BB Seaton, Ken Boothe, John Holt, Bob Andy and lots more, the list is endless, a quick search on Google will confirm this.

He worked at all of the great studios in Jamaica: Dynamics Studio, Federal Studio, Studio one, Channel one, Treasure Isle Studio, Harry J Studios, Randys Studio, King Tubbys, Joe Gibbs Studio just to name a few.

He immigrated to England in 1970 where he continued to spread the sound of Reggae music. He worked at Island's Basing Street Studios, Chalk Farm Studio, BBMC Studio, Hackney Community college Studio, Tony King Studio, Odessa studio and lots more.

He will be sadly missed, the music industry mourns his passing.
