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.
Yeah, love the Birds and they didn't care about being a bit off here and there, they just played it louder!

By way of a link and IMO one of the best R&B bands of the time, here's Ronnie's brother Art - with the Artwoods
