Day 18 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Dr. Alimantado - Gimmie Mi Gun
Riding the same riddim we've got a tune today that would make the NRA proud... it's called "Gimmie Mi Gun" by DJ Doctor Alimantado and is lifted from his 1978 LP Best Dressed Chicken In Town on the Greensleeves label. The album itself was a collection of Alimantado's singles released from 1972 until 1977 and engineered by Lee Perry, King Tubby and Scientist respectfully. In the song the Good Doctor states his case for gun ownership for the law-abiding citizenry of Kingston in need of self protection during one of its most turbulent and violent times.
