"Follow Me" c/w "Climbing Up the Wall"
SOLUTION RECORDS FIX001
The first release on Solution Records and we ain't messing about!
The Action are known to most are purveyors of some of the finest blue-eyed soul to emerge from the London club scene, thrilling a feverish Mod crowd with their setlist of Motown and Soul covers interspersed with a strong set of original numbers.
As music styles changed so did The Action, taking on board Psychedelic tones but still being a vehicle for Reg King's Steve Marriott equalling vocals.
A new set of tracks were recorded during 1967/68 in the hope of releasing a LP after leaving Parlophone. This album never materialised until the mid '90s when "Rolled Gold" let the world hear just how bloody good this band was - another criminally overlooked group.
Solution Records are more than happy to release two of those tracks on one 7" single - the riff-laden "Follow Me" and the bridge between the band's Mod and Psyche status with the emotive "Climbing Up The Wall"
More fantastic singles to follow, but I'm sure you'll agree - an amazing start!
