I'll be brisk and business-like today. Things to do, people to see, places to build - you know how it is.
The Twinkle Brothers have been making top notch reggae music for nigh on 60 years now. They released their first single back in 1965 and are still going strong under the leadership of the mighty Mr Norman Grant. Here are two personal favourites from their huge back catalogue.
"Since I Threw The Comb Away" - The Twinkle Brothers
"(This Man) King Pharoah (12" mix)" - The Twinkle Brothers
For the video I couldn't decide between "Terry" by the Brothers' near namesake or Sue Thompson's heartfelt tribute to Mr Grant so you are getting both. You lucky, lucky people.
PS In unrelated news, I went to see this lot last night. Great show. Go if you get the chance.
""Terry" by the Brothers' near namesake"ReplyDelete
Am I the only reader who does not know what this refers to?
The band is the Twinkle Brothers. The singer of "Terry" is called Twinkle (as it says in the title of the clip). That is what it refers to.Delete
Thanks Ernie. I now feel incredibly stupid, and have shown the entire world via your pages quite how thick I can be. (probably not for the first time)ReplyDelete
Nonsense, George. What you have shown is that your mind works on a higher plane than the rest of us, and that your impressive conceptual thinking is not bogged down by tedious detail.Delete
Liked the Twinkle Brothers first track so much I bought the company....or at least downloaded it. Dues will be paid to a charity this coming week. Many thanksReplyDelete
