This cd is a must have for all sixties music fans. I can't believe that they didn't make it big. The perfect blend of mod attitude with a real feal for soul/r'n'b should have made them the chart equals of the who, small faces, yardbirds etc. Plus... they were produced by George Martin !!! Reg King's voice is fantastic on the classic number one that never was "I'll Keep On Holding" and the rest of the tracks follow suit especially my favourites "Hey Sha Lo Ney" and a cool mod version of "Land Of A Thosand Dances". Do Yourself a BIG favour and add this to your cd collection

A brillant collection of 'white soul' and powerpop with a distinctly British feel from the criminally-overlooked Action. Contains some belting tracks - my personal favourite being 'Shadows & Reflections' which, in my humble opinion, is a brillantly atmospheric anthem - why this didn't top the charts at the time of its release is a crying mystery. Yes a Mod band, but their melodic tune should appeal to anyone with a taste for soul-inspired pop, so don't let the Mod label put you off. One of the best British bands of the 60s, definetely better that their counterparts like The Who. Do yourself a massive favour - add this to your collection!

THE ACTION ....PHIL COLLINS of genesis favourite band of the 60's , but don't hold that against them .... Here the action cover such classic motown tracks such as , i'll keep on holding on , harlem shuffle and the classic 60's dancer , land of 1000 dances . We all have heard about mod bands THE WHO , YARDBIRDS etc ...BUT if you want to hear the mods mod band of the 60's then choose THE ACTION ....you know it makes sense .

Superb seventeen track collection of this mid-to-late '60's mod rocker's repertoire. Surprisingly enough, you get an almost completely different track listing than their 'Rolled Gold' disc. Didn't the Action only put out like five 7" singles? So, I'm guessing that vocalist Reg King (or another member) probably discovered a stack of lost / packed away for years / unreleased and forgotten songs the band had recorded. Good thing, too. Tunes here I was most impressed with were their cover of the Motown classic "Land Of A 1,000 Dances", "I Love You (Yeah)", the catchy "Hey Sha-Lo-Ney", "Baby You've Got It", "Come On Come With Me" and "Something Has Hit Me". Clearly, another case of some of the BEST music you've never heard. Recommended.

Back in the early 80's, me and my mate Bruce T were 2nd Generation Mods discovering the original clothes and sounds from the 60's. Bruce was always the first to get the records; Small Faces, Yardbirds, The Who and The Action.
At the time Bruce was raving about The Action compilation he had just bought and I listened to it once at his house but never gave it a second chance. On the other hand I was too busy heading for coastal resorts on my Vespa and exploring the Northern Soul/Tamla Motown sounds.
Now nearly 30 years later I've just bought Action packed from Amazon and it has to be one of the best albums I have listened to for a long time. I can't stop playing it. Unlike some albums, I don't skip any tracks 'cause they're all great and some exceptional: In my lonely room, Just once in your life, Wasn't it you, Since I lost my baby, all really soulful. The later tracks have an upbeat, positive, west coast edge "Never Ever think of bad times, just remember the glad times" sing it every morning!
NICE!
