2. Rasta Surface
3. Don't Forget Africa
4. Burden Bearer
5. New Songs For Jah
6. Chant Down Babylon
7. Give The Sufferer a Chance
8. Rasta Pon Top
9. The Final Call
10. Culture Defender

I truly love the Twinkle Brothers :D I'm looking forward seeing them again at the international dub gathering festival next year

Countryman, Rasta Pon Top and the third would be hard to decide on. Then there is this one of various artists on Twinkle riddims, much recommended: Rastaman Roots Connection.

one love

The ones I have played the most are Countrymen, Praise Jah, and Love (not sure if the latter is considered an album, if not then replace with Rasta Pon Top), but then again I only have their catalogue up to and including Underground, and from the looks of the recommendations here maybe I should make an effort to explore some of their later works.

In addition to several of the great LPs already mentioned, I really like the Gussie P produced album Repent.

Agree with the albums already mentioned but a strong recommendation is to go and see Twinkle Brothers live if you have a chance... big stage show with some top notch musicians.
