Dillinger one of the most consistently successful DJ’s to come out of the Jamaica,
fondly remembered for his massive ‘Cocaine In My Brain’ hit from the great CB200
album and the later reworked ‘Marijuana In My Brain’ which gave Dillinger crossover
hits in both England and Europe. But the versatile DJ has many more strings to his bow.

Dillinger (born. Lester Bullocks,1953 Kingston, Jamaica) began his musical venture
around 1971, working asa DJ to Sound Systems run by Prince Jackie and El Brasso
1974 saw his first vinyl release in the form of ‘Freshly’ for Producer Yabby U and in
1975 he came with the great ‘Brace A Boy’ for the young Mr Augustus Pablo.But his
first album release was through Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One setup, where he let
Dillinger fire some vocals over classic Rocksteady rhythms. It took the form of ‘Ready
Natty Dreadie’. It was his time at Joseph ‘Jo Jo’ Hookim’s Channel One Studio that
produced his second album set(a crossover release and fore mentioned) the timeless
1976 classic ‘CB 200’. It contained three big singles in ‘Plantation Heights’,
‘Cocaine In My Brain’ and ‘Crank Face’. The reworked ‘ Marijuana In My Brain’
even became a No 1 hit in Holland in 1979.

We have taken our set of tunes from his classic 70’s period when Mr Dillinger could
do no wrong.Alongside the big ‘Cocaine’ and ‘Marijuana’ hits the great opening
track ‘Love Is All I Bring’ sees him working over Alton Ellis ‘Still In Love With You’
which Itself turned into ‘3 Piece Suite’. ‘Money Alone Is Not All’ where he works over
Barry Brown’s ‘Mr Money Man’, ‘Hear and Deaf’ working over Johnny Clarke’s
‘Nobodies Business’. ‘King Pharaoh Was A Baldhead’ has him working
Frankie Jone’s ‘ Jesse Black’ cut. ‘Concubine’ reworks the Mighty Diamond’s
‘Mother Winney’ and ‘Time So Hard’ sees Dillinger telling it like it is over Ronnie Davis’
original ‘ Time So Hard’ cut, empathizing the points in fine style.

A classic set of tunes all ‘Killer No Filler’ from the master of rhyme himself,
we hope you agree…..
