The album derives its name from the Tighten Up compilation album series by Trojan Records. The album's cover artwork was designed by Paul Simonon, the former bassist for the Clash, of whom Mick Jones was a member (Clash lyricist and lead vocalist Joe Strummer had been credited with co-producing and co-writing of 5 of the 9 tracks on their previous album No. 10, Upping St.). Big Audio Dynamite's keyboardist Dan Donovan took the back cover photo with Josh Cheuse.
