Skin Tight signified a turning point in the group’s career towards a more jazzy and polished funk sound. The album began the Players’ dominant platinum-selling period, and would bring them a much bigger audience. In fact, this release would outsell all of their previous LPs combined. The band produced and recorded the album in Chicago, with Barry Mraz as recording engineer. The final mix was mastered by Lee Hulko.
It is the second of five Ohio Players albums that were also available in quadraphonic (4-channel stereo), the first of four for Mercury. The quad mix is only available in the 8-track tape format. According to Billboard, Skin Tight took the top position on the Black Albums chart for six weeks, and missed the Top 10 on the Pop Albums chart by one position.
