DEE DEE RAMONE ON NEW PROHIBITION -COLLECTION

BACK TO DEE DEE

Viper Records -label released early on year 2001 album called New Prohibition: A Musical History Of Hemp. CD contains an original collection of rock, jazz and blues pro-hemp tunes that don't just celebrate hemp but call for a new look at the history of political crush and demonstrative ideology that have forever surrounded the depate. Album and idea is by Jonathan Stuart. Produced by Hal Willner and Jonathan Stuart. Songs are recorded July 1998 - June 2000. If I've heard correct, Dee Dee recorded his song December 1999.

Dee Dee sing spiritual song called Pass It To Jah and sure Dee Dee counts at first 1-2-3-4. Song takes 5min 40 sec and it gives lot Jamaican-connections with Rastafari-things. On liner notes Jonathan Stuart writes: " Before medical marijuana they were saying you could smoke if you were a Rastafari. It was a religious thing, but it never worked.

You can order CD through New Prohibition -homepage. Part of the profits will go to the National Organisation for the Reform of Marijuana laws.
