    Jah Stitch is a talented toaster, singjay & chanter from the 70ís, a cross between U Roy and Big Youth who were the main DJís at that time. He began his career with Tippertone and Black Harmony sound systems. During the 70ís he survived a gunshot to the head which changed his voice & appearance, but with no serious consequences where recording was concerned. Dillinger started his career in 1971 as a DJ on the sound systems of Prince Jackie & El Brasso. Initially he used to imitate the popular DJís of that time like U Roy, Al Capone and Big Youth, before forging his own unique style. His album contains some wicked dubs. I-Roy, born Roy Reid, worked as an accountant for the government in the mid 60ís during which time he deejayed more as a hobby. Due to the rise in popularity of DJís in the late 60ís he established and operated Turbo Sonic sound system. He then started to take the business more seriously, and went on to record a string of hits for various producers of that time. TRACKLISTING DISC 1 Jah Stitch Ė No Dread Canít Dead 1.
