On Wednesday 9th March 2022, the pioneering record label Peckings Records was awarded a blue plaque by Nubian Jak Community Trust. Two years before Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, started importing Jamaican music to England in the 1960s, George ‘Peckings’ Price had brought the sound of the Island to London and beyond. Music for George ‘Peckings’ Price started in Kingston, Jamaica where he formed a partnership with Coxsone Dodd, legendary producer from Studio 1. They set up their own sound system, which included members like Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Prince Buster. To stay ahead of their rivals Coxsone would travel to the US to collect music exclusives, leaving Peckings in charge of bookings and arranging the dances.
