    Marijuana In My Brain dates from 1977 and placed the toaster over some of the Bunny Striker Lee's hottest rhythms, previously utilised for Johnnie 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.
