Dub Plate Specials 1975-1979
The Sound Systems of Jamaica were always the people’s radio station.
Tunes were tried and tested in the lion’s den of the dance to see which songs rose to the top and became the most popular.
This was the litmus test and the first step to a tracks commercial release to capitalise its hotness on the circuit.
Then the Dub/Version hit big in Jamaica in the early to mid 70’s this was also the case and many times the version cut of a track would even prove more popular than its vocal counterpart.
We have compiled some great 70’s dub plates that rocked the Sound Systems in fine style...
Hope you enjoy the set....
