Defiantly diverse, the second volume of Trojan's legendary Tighten Up series has something for everyone & plenty of classic reggae hits.

Instrumentals were popular in the day, and this set boasts three: a pair of Upsetters classics, "Return of Django" and "Live Injection," and Clancy Eccles' bouncy "Fire Corner," a showcase for DJ King Stitt, known affectionately as the Ugly One. Dandy Livingstone, meanwhile, gave a whole new suggestive meaning to the term reggae with his anthemic "Reggae in Your Jeggae." For those of a more romantic nature, Joya Landis offered up the sultry "Moonlight Lover," while the Bleechers showed off their seduction technique on "Come into My Parlour." The Pioneers and the Soulmates offered up equally fabulous harmonies on the classic "Long Shot Kick the Bucket" and the exuberant "Them a Laugh and a Ki Ki," respectively.
