Booker T. & The MGs - Uptight (1968)

1. Johnny, I Love You
2. Cleveland Now
3. Children, Don't Get Weary
4. Tank's Lament Liste
5. Blues In The Gutter
6. We've Got Johnny Wells
7. Down At Ralph's Joint
8. Deadwood Dick
9. Run Tank Run
10. Time Is Tight
An early entry into the black soundtrack genre, this album by Booker T and the MGs finds them at their best. It's a good album with a sparse, jazz-tinged feel. Note the long version of 'Time Is Tight', considerably different to the original.
