Dr Alimantado

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Dr Alimantado, born Winston Thompson, also known as The Ital Surgeon (Kingston, 1952-) is a Jamaican reggae singer, DJ and producer.

He started to record very young under various names (Prince Winston, Winston Cool or Youth Winston). He mainly met success in the mid to late 1970s, with his best known album being Best Dressed Chicken in Town (1978), a Greensleeves Records collection of tracks recorded in the mid-70s, featuring Alimantado toasting over singers such as John Holt, Gregory Isaacs, Jackie Edwards and Horace Andy.

Alimantado's biggest hits were "A Place Called Africa" and "Born for a Purpose".
