Of the 3, Scratch was the one who was probably most often present in the studio supervising & guiding the session..

Coxsone for me, wether or not he was involved heavily in the music (still under debate)he produced the finest and most varied catalogue of records in any music!!! (Just an opinion :) )

hands down it's scratch, no one else got the complex sounds he got on the fairly basic equipment he had at the ark.
i don't think you can compre Striker, Coxsone etc in the same legue as Upsetter as far as production goes, yes they are /were great producers but neither got the complexity or depth that the Ark did in it's 1970's golden era.

Even though Scratch was a genius in the studio during the 70's. I could live without Scratch, but not without Coxsone. As far as I'm concerned Coxsone's legacy is far greater. imo of course.

studio one's catalogue is second to none but i see dodd more as a supervisor than actual creator, arranger and mixer of music
