Dr Alimantado

Best Dressed Chicken In Town

    Reissue of the drop-dead classic album from 1978. Alimantado with Horace Andy, Lee Perry, King Tubby, Gregory Isaacs, Jah Woosh, Jimmy Radwell and Jackie Edwards. Recorded in several sessions, at the Black Ark, Channel One, Randy's and King Tubby's studios, it was the first album put out by Greensleeves, now reissued by the good Dr. himself on his Keyman label. Alimantado's graffiti, daubed round Westbourne Park and Notting Hill back in 1978 survived longer than any Banksy could, without a sliver of perspex in sight.


    Patrick says: Greensleeves debut album back in 1978. A classic deejay (aka toasting) set featuring Horace Andy, Lee Perry, King Tubby, Gregory Isaacs, Jah Woosh, Jimmy Radwell and Jackie Edwards along with the good Dr. himself of course.

    The one-and-only, heroically self-determined, best-dressed chicken, straight to the head of all intolerance and bigotry. Recorded at Channel One in 1977, after a Kingston bus driver swerved to put the young Rasta in hospital. In London, the record’s popularity with punks was a big leg-up for the fledgling Greensleeves label. The musicians who played on the record did so without payment. You have on this heavyweight vinyl four tracks that are all as good as each other. Dub, roots and heart warming lyrics for all. This is a limited, anniversary edition on Tado’s own Keyman imprint.


    Sil says: Monster 12" with four giant tracks from the Doctor. You can't go wrong with these classic roots tunes.
