Best Dressed Chicken in Town (1978) is an album by Dr Alimantado, 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. His tunes mix his Rastafarianism with commentary on events then going on in his community; "Poison Flour" referenced a recent incident when a number of local Kingstonians had been poisoned by eating bread made with contaminated flour.
