Track Listing / Description

Winston ‘Doctor Alimantado’ Thompson’s first collection of classic deejay 45’s Best Dressed Chicken In Town remains one of the essential reggae albums, revealing ‘Tado to be a deejay of consummate flair and originality. He may have taken his cue from the legends that achieved success before him, most notably Dennis Alcapone and Big Youth, but the records he made revealed an original talent that transcended that of the mere copyist. Greensleeves followed Chicken up with a next collection Sons Of Thunder and a third volume emerged on Tado’s own Keyman label some years after. Now the good Doctor issues a fourth collection of rarities and gems from his back pages. Those with a fondness for the deejays of the seventies are strongly advised to investigate. Obviously a labour of love for ‘Tado, all the tracks, which include some of his earliest recordings such as No Gwaan So, Maccabee The Third, Chu and Revenge alongside better known tracks such as Mary Lou (the deejay piece to Jimmy London’s A Little Love), Ride On Brother, Teach The Children, Conscious Man, Dread Natty Dreadlocks (on Joy White’s Dread Out Deh), Rasta Train and the Black Ark epic Reggae Music with Hugo Blackwood on the Vibrate On rhythm track, have been restored from the original 45’s at Abbey Road Studio using the CEDAR facility. Copious booklet notes from David Katz and the man himself complete what is a welcome CD of top-notch seventies roots reggae music.
