Prog New - LP 9216010055 Daffodil
Sealed, Rare 1974 Gatefold Original. “Dillinger (Not To Be Confused With The Reggae Band Of The Same Name) Was A Canadian Progressive Band From Toronto, Ontario. The Band's Debut Self-Titled Album Was Originally Released On The Daffodil Records Label In 1974. The Album Contains Three Original Songs Composed By The Band And A Superb Cover Of The Song "Nature's Way," Originally Done By Spirit On The 12 Dreams Of Dr Sardonicus Album. Dillinger's Music Is A Complex, Guitar-And-Organ Fronted Progressive Sound Which Moves From Jazz To Blues And Features A Variety Of Instruments Including Piano, Synthesizers, Flute, Sax, Acoustic And Electric Guitars Bass, And Percussion. In Places The Band Sounds Like Santana, While In Other Places Like Iron Butterfly Or Emerson, Lake & Palmer.Dillinger Has A Unique Sound For A Canadian Band That Attracted More Attention In Europe Than It Did In North America. With Long Songs And Drawn-Out Solos, Dillinger Is More Or Less One Of Your Typical Early-'70s Progressive Bands, Nothing Special, But Nonetheless Interesting And Typical Of The Genre.” – Keith Pettipas, All Music Guide... more details
 
Dillinger - CB 200 CB 200
Reggae Audiophile - LP SVLP 188 Simply Vinyl
Sealed, Long Out Of Print, Limited Edition 180gm HQ Import. “Although His Christian Name Was Lester Bullock, It Is Under The Gangster-Inspired Moniker That The Jamaican Toaster Dillinger Gained Prominence During The Early 1970s. He Followed In The Footsteps Of Dennis Alcapone, Another Kingston-Based Deejay. His First International Release Was C.B. 200 (1977) -- The Make And Model Of His Honda Motorcycle. Tucked Within The Tricky Rhymes And Seemingly Effortless Patois Are Strong And Incisive Observations Of Western Culture. Chiefly, The Anti-Drug Anthem "Cokane In My Brain" -- With A Primary Rhythm Ironically Adopted From The B.T. Express' Hit "Do It ('Til Your Satisfied)." The Title And Chorus Are Direct Descendants Of The North American "Cocaine Blues" Folk Ballad -- As Brought To Prominence By Dave Van Ronk And Then Subsequently Adapted As "Take A Whiff On Me" By The Byrds. However, Dillinger's Call-And-Response Takes A Direct Aim On The New York Lifestyle As The Austere Lyrics Proclaim "No Matter How I Treat My Guest/They Always Like My Kitchen Best/'Cause I've Cocaine/Runnin' Around My Brain" And "How Do You Spell New York?/ A Knife, A Fork, A Bottle And A Cork/That's The Way We Spell New York." Dillinger Also Explores Other Mid-'70s Cultural Icons, Such As Football [Read: Soccer] On The Hazy Mid-Tempo "Natty Kick Like Lightning," Or More 'Us Vs. Them' Social Commentary On "Buckingham Palace." The Lyrics Describe The Clash Between The English Crowned Figureheads And The Divine Providence Of The Pro-Ganja Rastas. Of Note Is The Combined Force Of Dillinger And His Deejay Contemporary Trinity On The Closer "Crankface." The Two Parties Would Become Fiercely Competitive Rivals In The Ensuing Years When Dillinger Became The Toaster Of Choice For The U.K.'S Burgeoning Punk Community.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details
