Best Dressed Chicken in Town is the debut album by Jamaican deejay Dr. Alimantado. It was first released in 1978, and collects many of his self-produced singles from 1972 to 1978 , employing the engineering talents of Lee "Scratch" Perry, King Tubby, and Scientist. The dub-inflected tracks and Alimantado's idiosyncratic musings prove a potent combo, especially on standouts like "Poison Flower" (a version of a Horace Andy vocal), the Rasta vengeance number "I Killed the Barber," and the comical title cut.
