    Tighten Up!, the sequel to "Young, Gifted, and Black: The History of Trojan Records", takes a comprehensive look at Britain's reggae scene during the late '60s and '70s, encompassing the whole genre and its evolution in the U.K. Highlighting major bands and artists like Steel Pulse, Reggae Regular, Vivian Jones, and Pablo Gadd, it traces the music's history - from its roots in Jamaica to a more mainstream pop sound, from Rasta to the romantic style.

    Includes an exclusive 12-track CD offering the best examples of reggae from this period.
