Making up the four great bands of the 1966 pop-apocalypse were The Who, The Action, The Creation and finally The Attack ( first brought to my attention by a close friend of this blog). Four names that in their brevity summed up the instant flash of mod-pop appeal. They had more energy than an H-bomb after flash, and they hit the senses and the soul with a long awaited wake up call. A definitive collection, which includes such stand outs as - Try It "bugged out insanity,with sexual overtones blowing the Standells version into oblivion"; We Don't Know "a tight explosion of mod-soul" ; Anymore Than I Do "a freak beat classic" - plus of course their pre-Jeff Beck version of Hi Ho Silver lining. A Must for all Mod Collectors. Includes for the first time on CD all four Decca singles. Includes previously unreleased material.
