parlando playlist #53: dr. alimantado - best dressed chicken in town [1975]

Dr. Alimantado (Winston Thompson) is kind of a weird guy. That's all. Okay, evidence. That's his first album, Best Dressed Chicken in Town, a collection of singles. It's famous in Jamaica (and somewhat in Britain), not at all in America.

Here is the title track (and the first song on the album). There were little changes in the title; first when it's a single in 1975, the title was variously "Best Dress Chicken in Town" and just "Best Dress Chicken", and then the album (in 1978) called the song "Best Dressed Chicken in Town". I used that, but I used the date from the single, because I couldn't find a re-recording date, so I assumed that's the single recording. (Jamaican recording and stuff is always hard to nail down.)

Excellent title--but that it seems to be where the track has funneled all of its creativity.
