Catalog no.: RROO0000332

Item ID: 472237

'Marijuana In My Brain' dates from 1977 and placed the toaster over some of the Bunny 'Striker' Lee's hottest rhythms, previously utilised for Johnny Clarke scorchers like 'Satta' and 'Poor Marcus' (along with the odd Ronnie Davis track); Clarke's reading of 'Going To A Ball' is here transformed into an ode to the Bouncing Ball, then one of the most popular clubs for black Londoners, and his 'African Roots' anthem gets the Dillinger treatment too. Of course, the title track was the biggest hit of the bunch, an ode to the 'wisdom weed' driven by cosmic space synth overdubs.

Also available: MARIJUANA IN MY BRAIN (CD).
