THE TWINKLE BROTHERS COUNTRYMEN
Countrymen is the best thing that the Twinkle Brothers released. It consists of some powerful roots reggae with classy and joyful riddims. The Twinkle Brothers trademark harmonies and conscious lyrics are to the fore throughout the album. It's all deep roots, with a number of classics such as Since I Threw The Comb Away and Never Get Burn” but there is not really a weak track on the album.What makes the Twinkle Brothers such a good reggae band is their soulful voices. Their melodies are often inspired by soul or even gospel music; nevertheless the Twinkle’s themes are classical Rastafarian ones. If you enjoy late 70’s roots music then you should enjoy this one; it grows on you the more you listen to it.
Track List:
1) I Don't Want To Be Lonely Anymore 2) Pattoo 3) Never Get Burn 4) Free Us 5) Free Us Dub 6) Jah Kingdom Come 7) Since I Throw The Comb Away 8) One Head 9) Bite Me 10) Babylon Falling
BIG YOUTH – SCREAMING TARGET







Big Youth is a Jamaican deejay who with this album set the benchmark for all deejay albums that were to follow.Deejays then, as now, borrow their music from popular songs and then toast (rap) over that music. If you want to know the starting point for the hip-hop genre then lend an ear to this. He added powerful lyrics to some of the best musical tracks of the day. Leroy Smart's "Pride And Ambition," Dennis Brown's "In Their Own Way," and Gregory Issac's "One One Cocoa Fill Basket" all make appearances among many other classic tracks. There is not a dull moment anywhere on Screaming Target, and everything from the lyrics to the music to the mood of every song is nothing short of great.
Track List:
1) Screaming Target 2) Pride and Joy Rock 3) Be Careful 4) Tippertong Rock
5) One of These Fine Days 6) Screaming Targets (Version 2) 7) The Killer 8) Solomen A Gunday 9) Honesty 10) I Am Alright 11) Le A Low 12) Concrete Jungle
BARRY BROWN – FAR EAST
“Far East” is a quality dancehall album with tuneswritten by Brown himself and backed by the brilliant musicianship of the Revolutionaries.With players such as Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Lloyd Parks, Ansell Collins & Tommy McCook featured it’s not difficult to see why this album would not be an excellent use of your time. One of the most successful artists of the early dancehall era, Brown had a distinctly raw and real style that came through in his music and led to the nickname ‘the Jamaican Bob Dylan’. Stand out tracks on the album for me are “So Jah Jah Seh” and “Run Wicked Man” with its marvellous horn section
Track List:
1) Far East 2) So Jah Jah Seh 3) Forward On 4) Be Careful 5) Come We Dub Tonight 6) My Woman 7) Problem 8) Run Wicked Man 9) Down In A Babylon 10) Stand Firm 11) Trod On 12) Sensimillia 13) For Your Love Is Real
