Tighten Up – Archie Bells & The Drells

There are songs from my past that bubble up warmly in the music of our heart. “Tighten Up” by Archie Bell & The Drells from Houston, Texas is a song written to showcase their new dance moves. I recall buying their 45 r.p.m. single at the 5&10 record department in the summer of 1968. I played it endlessly on the hi-fi system in my room.

I loved Archie Bell’s soulful voice set against that funky guitar lick that eggs you on. This hit sounds as fresh today as it did 46 years ago 🙂
