Here is The Action with their version of The Harlem Shuffle - the mod's mod band - produced by George Martin but never had a big hit - they still have a big following and the like's of Weller hold them in high esteem

The Action were fantastic. Hard to believe that 'I'll Keep On Holding On' and 'Shadows & Reflections' completely flopped. Reg King was one of the best blue-eyed soul singers the UK ever produced.

Ronnie Wood's old band The Birds also deserved better. Their version of 'Leaving Here' is fantastic, even if the guitar is slightly out of tune and the drummer sounds like he's bashing ice-cream tubs.
