Overview

Alive 'n Kickin' was a New York pop
ock band from the late '60s. Tommy James discovered the group playing in a local club. Impressed with their performance, he convinced his label, Roulette, to sign the group, and he supplied them with a song he had co-written, "Tighter, Tighter." (He initially gave them "Crystal Blue Persuasion," but he had second thoughts and kept it for himself.) "Tighter, Tighter" was an infectious number, and the group had a couple of songs that nearly matched it. Unfortunately, the follow-up singles didn't go anywhere, and the group fell apart shortly afterward. Collectables reissued their enjoyable, albeit uneven, debut album augmented by the non-LP singles "London Bridge," "You Gave Me Something" and "Good Ole Lovin' Back Home." There might not be anything that is as memorable as "Tighter, Tighter," but fans of that single, Tommy James and early-'70s mainstream pop might find it worth exploring.
