    This is the first time I'm giving them a proper listen and boy, it is sooo good. I mean this is just pure gold. Those guys would be kings today.

    Sometimes you just got to chalk it up to bad timing, bad luck,bad karma etc. These guys were damn good. In the Mod subculture,the Small Faces were wild.The Who even wilder,getting more famous by bashing their instruments. Meanwhile,The Action were bashing their collective heads against the proverbial wall wondering why they couldn't make the big time. They didn't even get out of the small local clubs. Even George Martin signing them to EMI didn't help. Hey George here's a thought,why didn't you just have them open some gigs for The Beatles?

    I still don't get why these guys weren't bigger then they were. Reg King's voice caresses the airwaves so gently and well that he is definatly one the greatest singers who ever lived. RIP.
