Tighten Up, Vol. 2 [Expanded]

Maintaining the stomping, skinhead-friendly sound of the original LP issue, this expanded-CD release of Tighten Up, Vol. 2 will make the perfect soundtrack to that next reggae dance party. Taking on 13 additional tracks (for a total of 25), the disc features hits and scorchers from both the rocksteady and early reggae periods of the late '60s. Whether your tastes run to vintage DJ sides (King Stitt's "Fire Corner"), classic instrumentals (the Upsetters' "Return of Django"), or ganja-touting vocals (Clancy Eccles' "Fattie Fattie"), the hectic beat never lets up as all manner of studio and vocal alchemy hovers above. Join the Hippy Boys, John Holt, the Soul Sisters, and many others for one of the most enjoyable reggae mixes available. ~ Stephen Cook
