After not hearing my vinyl copies of the albums of this band for over 15 years, I had forgotten just how good they are. The tracks still sound fresh and not at all dated. Highly recommended if you don't have any of their albums, or if you just want a "best of" to stick in the car so you can sing until you've got a sore throat ;-)

I remembered liking a couple of this band's songs from the late 70s, and realise how many other great songs I missed out on. These are mostly upbeat numbers with a few slower ones to let you catch your breath, higly listenable lead vocals and some of the best instrumental breaks ever with saxophone and brass solos that are just amazing, the break in "My World" being a classic in itself. When I first listened to the album I thought "Going to a Go Go" would be the only one to get on my nerves after a while, but it's become one of my favourites. These tunes really do grow on you. "Lost in the Night (Mack the Knife)" bears no similarity to the 50s classic, but is an excellent tune with memorable lyrics, 'With dark intent and thoughts unkind, he creeps up on you from behind". "Streetlife Parade" starts slowly and has an atmospheric instrumental break that is nighttime in the city turned to music. "Hide and Seek" sounds like the theme to the best 70s teatime serial you never saw but wished you had, and "I'm not Free" takes off into a fantastic full band instrumental that rounds the album off perfectly.
Music to make you feel young again.

nostalgic. i can't imagine anyone stumbling on this without knowing what they're after? if you do however, just get it! there are 20 songs, packaging is pared down, 2.98? you'd pay that for an ian page autographed copy of time for action nowadays ;)

Listening to this CD made me realise that my youth had not been mispent. Truely the best of their day, over-looked and under-rated.

Always one of the best live bands of the early eighties and still going strong. This is a snap shot of them at the top of teir game and a bargain for all fans.

I liked Secret Affair as a twenty-something and recently got involved in my local 70s/80s music revival scene, hearing Time for action for the first time in many years.
This prompted me to look for an album and, of course, I went straight to Amazon.
I absolutely love this album. Some of the tracks are well known, some less well known, but all really good.
Good upbeat music, ideal for listening to in the car.
I can't recommend it enough. My personal favourite is "I want to be your dance master".
Buy it...now...and find out for yourself. Top sounds.

Some really good tunes and songs from the Mod revival era. The music still sounds good now, in fact sounds better than a lot of music these days!

This is the album of my youth, and what a brilliant compilation it is. There are the hits plus songs I have to own up and admit i did not know. But tnhey are all amazing. The price was an absolute bargain, and yet again Amazon were not slow in delivering this CD to me. A great buy. A bargain and if you are a fan of music of this type then you will NOT be disappointed
