Reggie King - The Ultimate Action Man RIP

Like any other young mod in the early 80’s, I became mesmerised by The Action the moment I’d heard their version of The Marvellettes’ I’ll Keep Holding On at the first gigs and clubs I attended, and listened to older mods speaking in hushed tones about this seemingly mythical group from Kentish Town.  Getting the album The Ultimate Action seemed a necessity and from the moment it hit my turntable it very rarely left.  Having a recommendation from Paul Weller on the back no doubt helped shift a few copies but the music within those grooves would have left no-one in doubt as to how good they were.  I wanted to hear more and searched desperately for any snippet, picture or record by them.
