Wall of Sound Phil Spector Uses orchestration techniques and reverb = a large space where sound fuses E.g: Be My Baby by the Ronettes (1963)
Dubplate Definition adapted from: Difficult to obtain and held in high regard A recording on which an artist mentions the name of the sound (in effect identifying it as a top sound and pledging to back it or support it). Usually comes in the form of an extra thick vinyl record (that looks like a plate) with 2 songs (dubs) on each side. Unique because of the fact that they are usually renditions of popular hit songs that particular artists have made.
