    The Twinkle Brothers have been in existence since the 1960s, and although bandleader Norman Grant continues to record under the Twinkle Brothers name, the three Frontline LPs from 1979 and 1980 probably mark the high point of their work. Those albums (Love, Praise Jah, and Countrymen) are selectively represented on this 16-track compilation, which swings back and forth between songs that show a heavy gospel influence (the almost hymnlike "Solid as a Rock" and "Free Us") and others that betray a clear debt to vintage American R&B ("Shu Be Dup" and "Since I Threw the Comb Away"). Grant plays drums and sings from deep in his chest in a clear, resonant baritone voice, while various other band members contribute tight, soaring harmonies. During this period, the Twinkle Brothers had one of the few truly unique ensemble sounds in reggae music, and this collection is an excellent introduction to their art. ~ Rick Anderson
