- Product Code: SSA002
- Availability: In Stock
The Shake Some Action series returns with the first two volumes of the long out-of-print collection of power pop, mod and new-wave rarities from 1975-1986, on vinyl for the first time. Each of the original CD's 24 tracks are split across two vinyl editions, featuring a dozen rare tracks on each.
Volume 1.1, (SSA 001LP), focuses on the UK and Volume 2.1, presented here, focuses on the USA. Volume 2.1 is a more (power) pop affair, with more jangle, but no less manic energy and plenty of teen spirit.
The album opens strong with certified should've-been smash by The Shivvers, "Teen Line", and includes such lost classics as Reaction Formation's "Looking at You" and Revolver's driving version of "Some Other Guy" plus nine more tracks you need. Also features: Holly & The Italians, The Infidels, The Notes, Gary Charlson, The Pop, The Marshalls, SVT, The Zippers, and The Secrets. Includes a full color sleeve, plus an insert with extensive liner notes by Alan Fleagle. Edition of 500.
