Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Muze PNote Includes liner notes by Dave Hendley.
Muze PNote Introduction by: Don Letts.
Muze PNote The six original Tighten Up albums are now available as a two-disc, 52-track package. Credited with really selling the English public on reggae, the series featured now-classic work by the Maytals, Delroy Wilson, the Upsetters, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Slim Smith, the Uniques, and the Pioneers. The British skinheads were particularly impressed, especially by such stomping anthems as Clancy Eccles' "Fattie, Fattie" and the Upsetters' "Return of Django." And for those favoring a slower pace, this mix of 1968-1974 sides includes plenty of smoky relaxants by the likes of Judy Mowatt, Johnny Clarke, and Nicky Thomas, among many others. Not a bad way to start your reggae collection, really. ~ Stephen Cook
