Della Grant, a gifted songstress from a family of talented musicians, is a seasoned veteran who has released nine albums to date including "Arrival", "Listen", "Ruff 'N' Ready", "Rootically Yours", "Black Rose", "Dawta Of The Dust", "In Fine Style", "Precious Memories" and "Give Jah The Glory". Her latest album, "Resurrection", is composed, arranged and produced by her husband Ralston Grant and brother-in-law Norman Grant of the famed Twinkle Brothers. On this 18-track album she delivers each and every song in her usual eloquent style.

Della Grant's previous albums have been fine examples of authentic roots reggae music, that uplifts your spirit, sends a conscious message, and rocks the soul, and this is no exception. Backed by riddims laid by the great Twinkle Brothers with furthermore contributions from Tada Mikurya, Mele Viloria, Hux Brown and Wadi Gad, she delivers a nice blend of roots and lovers music. Except for decent cover versions of Alton Ellis' "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do", "Ain't That Loving You" and "La La Means I Love You" (originally done by Philly group The Delfonics in 1968), this collection features 15 solid original tunes. Personal favourites are the album opener "Better Way", "Blessed Love", "Society Climber", "Lift Up You Head" and the moving "Where Have All The Parents Gone". The latter is the key track of this cd as 50% percent of all proceeds from sales will be donated to assist the AIDS orphans in Africa and around the world.

All in all this is a very nice album with obviously strong Twinkle Brothers vibes!
