Straight from 1977, here’s marijuana afficionado Dillinger’s seminal Marijuana In My Brain, reissued by Radiation Roots. Discovered by Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Dillinger teamed up with producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee to create a spaced-out roots classic. Features iconic MS Paint artwork.
Answer Me Question is Dillinger’s 1977 album, supremely produced by Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. As an authentic participant in Rastafari culture, Dillinger can hold forth on life in Kingston using his laid-back flow. Meanwhile The Aggrovators providing true roots backing. Answer Me Question is reissued by Radiation Roots.
Join The Queue comes from 1982, right at the core of Dillinger’s peak. He is on fine form here, rhyming smooth over the reggae / dancehall rhythms. The tracks were laid down by We The People Band and Roots Radicals, two of the finest studio outfits of the time. This record has been out of print for a full 33 years(!), so enjoy this reissue on King Spinna.
