Album Review

"Don't Lie To The Band" is the second album by the Toronto based band, Dillinger. Originally released on the Daffodil Records label in 1976, two years after the band's debut, this album sees the band starting to pursue a hard rock direction on some songs rather than keeping with the progressive style of the previous effort. There are still some bright moments on this album that includes the songs, "It's Not All Mine," a radio friendly cover of a Spooky Tooth tune from the Mirror album, Munchkin Men, a superb psychedelic tinged progressive opus, the frantic Robot Race and the emotional ballad Coming Home. The band also does a miserable funk cover of the Beatles song, "Taxman," that is perhaps one of the worst adaption of a Beatles song ever done. Don't Lie To The Band was to be the last release by Dillinger before founding membersPaul Cockburn and Jacques Harrison split to form the hard rock band "The Hunt". This release by Unidisc is a straight reissue of the original album at a budget price and contains no bonus tracks.

Born Lester Bullocks on June 25, 1953, in Kingston, Jamaica,...
