Tighten Up Vol. 88 Cover

Post by Heston »

Ok, here's part three of our BAD series...thanks to Marky for his help with the samples.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Love it! An underrated song IMO. Really suits John's voice too. Sounds great.

underrated indeed ! It's a pure British pop Mick's track, with nice guitar and cool lyrics.
I always loved this track but for having made it listen to several people but many people say. "it's nice but the production is bad"

Thx for your feedback people !

Love this choice of song... wouldn't have guessed it without that clue in one of the earlier covers. Excellent version!

very nice - really like the slowed down instrumentation and the extended groove/jam at the end. And the horns. And the visuals. And what a great set of lyrics...

This is now my favourite song. And made me nostalgic for South London, which I didn't realise I could be.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Absolutely agree. Great work guys. I hope it gets played on Don Letts radio show. It deserves it.
