Dr Alimantado (born Winston James Thompson; 1952 in Kingston) is a Jamaican reggae singer, DJ, and producer. Jah Stitch (Melbourne James, Kingston, Jamaica, 27 July 1949 – 28 April 2019) was a Jamaican reggae deejay.
Bunny Lee's irrepressible spirit fills the room, he knows what he wants and if the deejay runs out of lyrics, well, Bunny will always proffer a couplet or two. Tubbs lines up the tape, Bunny shouts "Go deh now", and the Aggravators new cut of John Holts 'Ali Baba' rhythm cranks out over the headphones. Doctor Alimantado steps up to the mike exuding an irrepressible ragamuffin cool, hails up his bredrin Jah Stitch, and the pair clamber aboard a revving motorbike and literally ride the rhythm, rubber-necking the girls; well rude, pausing only briefly at the barber shop to laugh theatrically at the man's plight, now that the youth them dread up an' 'im cyaan get no wuk, before roaring off down the track in search of the likkle spliff the ital physician recalls leaving at the Black Ark-that's 'The Barber Feel It' , one of a clutch of records from the period taunting the unfortunate tonsors, in torment as dreadlocks become the fashion amongst Jamaica's youth.
