"Cocaine" tune - dubplate only?

Postby Ruffneck » Fri May 10, 2013 8:42 pm

When browsing around flea bay, I came across this auction: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0877042903. Killer tune, never heard the riddim or lyrics before. The other side seems to have some pitch errors but it sounds somewhat more familiar although I can't remember where I've heard it. Do you think this is dubplate only or something which can be found released on vinyl? And who are the artists and producers?

Yeah great plate...the riddim sounds similar to Delton Screechies "Reggae gone international".

Riddim sounds like Black Man by the Hot Rocks:

Indeed, it's the same riddim as on the plate. Thanks for the id, I have the Delton LP but had completely forgotten the tune. The "Cocaine" tune sounds even better than Delton on the short ebay clip, would certainly like to know if it's been released, not to mention how nice it would then be to find a copy.
