The Twinkle Brothers’ classic debut album originally issued in the UK on the old Grounation label in 1975 and now reissued.

After winning local talent competitions, they recorded their first single, Somebody Please Help Me, in 1966 for producer Leslie Kong. This was followed by sessions for other top Jamaican producers such as Duke Reid, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Sid Bucknor, Phil Pratt and Bunny Lee.

The band worked in the late 1960s and early 1970s on the island's hotel circuit, playing a mixture of calypso, soul, pop, and soft reggae, and in the early 1970s, they began producing their own recordings. Their debut album, "Rasta Pon Top", was released in 1975, featuring strongly-Rastafari-oriented songs such as Give Rasta Praise and Beat Them Jah Jah and now given the reissue treatment by Burning Sound.
