Quotes & Notes

The "Time Is Tight" on this single is different than the one released on the Uptight album. This version is a slower, more groove-based take, while the album version features a faster take bookended by Booker's gospelly organ.

"Johnny, I Love You" features Booker T. Jones on vocals, the only full-fledged vocal in the MG's catalog.
