The replacement, which soared to number 7 on the charts, was a Tommy James/Bob King composition entitled “Tighter,Tighter.” James also produced the recording. The stereo mix of the song has lead vocalists Pepe Cardona and Sandy Toder singing in different channels, but mixed into the middle by the time they sign together. There is a little glitch in the fading of Sandy Toder’s voice on the line “Tighter.”
One of things I find memorable about this cut is the guitar lead as the song is ending. It is truly classic 1970 one-hit wonder gold as the single was a million seller.
