The Action In My Lonely Room (1965) Parlophone records.
One of a small set of 60s issued singles that now demand high prices across record buyers, this single by popular live act for 60s mods, The Action, is a faithful & endearing rendition of the Marvelettes' hit with perfectly timed harmonies. Despite their popular live sets, the band sadly never received any serious - and well-justified - recognition during their original lifespan. Morphing into the more progressive Mighty Baby, The Action were belatedly embraced avidly by post-revival mods of the 80s, helped along by Paul Weller's recommendation. Singer, the late Reggie King, possessed one of the greatest soul voices of the whole 60s beat & rock explosion.
