With the influx of young Jamaicans into post-war Britain, the sounds of West Indian culture found a new home in the UK music scene. Tighten Up! is the story of how this authentic Jamaican vibe found a new home, becoming a vital chapter in Britain’s cultural history. The authors look at the key players in the evolution of reggae music during this period: the artists, the fledgling reggae labels and the shops who put the music on the streets.
Complete with a free exclusive 12-track CD, a comprehensive Pama discography, extensive interviews and a detailed directory of UK reggae labels, Tighten Up! is a must-have for all fans of reggae music.
