    Dubplates

    (for those who know what that is)
    What was the best and most effective dubplate you have ever heard? Who was it played by. Who got hurt (murdered) by it?
    I've heard thousands since childhood days, one of the first effective one i heard was a Coxone produced song "Your Love" ( Larry and Alvin) played in a trombone style by Tippertone.....yes the place was flattened.
    The most electrifying dubplate i heard was "Hanging Tree" by Johnny Osbourne done for Jaro in the 80s. It started out as the theme music for RJRs death announcement....."we regret to announce the death of Silverhawk........needless to say,icouldnt hear for the next few days. Silverhawk didnt last long after that.
    There hasnt been dubplates for years, it was replaced by something called "specials" in the late 80s early 90s.
    Now every sound has "specials". All you do is "place sound name here" ......aww for the good ole days when you hear a good dubplate, only one sound could really play it or "wi cut yuh troat"
    What were your faves?
