Doctor Alimantado - Born For A Purpose / Reason For Living / Still Alive (Keyman) 12"

Doctor Alimantado - Born For A Purpose / Reason For Living / Still Alive (Keyman) 12

Track Listing / Description The Good Doctor celebrates 40 years by re-releasing his classic 1977 tune.  It provided succour for Johnny Rotten in that year after being beaten up by royalist thugs and should do the same for any ears that hear it.  A classic coupled with his deejay piece and dubs.  Born For A Purpose comes packed with warmth and energy. The vocal in particular is rich with vibes. Built in 1977, the record comes laden with a discomix, smoothly transitioning from vocal to dub like many tunes from yesteryear. The lyrics as well are striking, backing singers are harmonious and the horns are triumphant, rising with the vocal.  Great dub mix, drums and bass illuminated amongst the occasional echoing horn and guitar note. The experience is complete with an excellent deejay piece on the flip. In many ways it’s the complete roots tune, conscious, heavy, deejay piece on the flip, great dub mix. A tune that would unite the various tribes of reggae lovers due to it’s quality.
