Description

This hot double-A side features the 70s Torch dancer “Here I Go Again” - with it’s crashing backbeat and fabulous “call-to-the-floor” intro. The song was originally released in the USA by Atlantic Records in 1969, to little acclaim at the time, but later spiraled to No.11 in the UK pop charts in 1972 due to demand from the Northern Soul scene.

“Tighten Up” was one of the first songs to be recorded by Archie Bell & The Drells, in Houston, Texas in 1967. The track had originally been developed by the T.S.U. Toronadoes and, coupled with Bell’s unique spoken introduction, caught the imagination of the nation earning the band a gold disc and a No.1 R&B and Pop smash. It would become a UK Mod anthem and spawned future club hits care of Willie & The Mighty Magnificents “Funky 8 Corners” and Frankie Crocker’s floor packin’ “Ton Of Dynamite”.
