DR. ALIMANTADO

UK pressing of this sought after Alimantado set. Released in 1979, a year after his debut "Best Dressed Chicken In Town", it shows the esteemed deejay in fine form, with a solid instrumental backing from The Doctor Alimantado Experience and with backing vocals from The Heptones. 

It's a late roots flavoured collection, with relaxed rhythms and a strong melodic focus; while the lyrical content has a definitive spiritual slant. Limited copies on this one folks so don't delay...



Dr. Alimantado first came to international attention in the 1970s with his singles "Best Dressed Chicken in Town" and "Born For a Purpose." This collection of rarities from the Jamaican toaster includes some of his earliest recordings, like 1969's "No Gwan So", originally released under the name Winston Cool (his real name is James Winston Thompson) and the Lee Perry-produced "Maccabee the Third". Toasts on various 1970s backing tracks (themselves versions of US chart hits like "Piece of My Heart", here retitled Chapter of My Heart", and "First Cut Is the Deepest", appearing here as the anti-street violence "One Trouble"), as well as some confident, eccentric late-'70s Lee Perry productions, make this set essential listening for fans of vintage Jamaican reggae.
