Shake Some Action: Best Of The Flamin Groovies. Shake Some Action: 39 Alternative Classics 1976-1991.
Shake Some Action is the fourth studio album by American rock band the Flamin' Groovies. The album was released in June 1976 by Sire Records. The title Shake Some Action originates from a line in the 1965 film None but the Brave. Shake Some Action was the first album by the newly reconstituted version of the Flamin' Groovies, who had returned from a five-year hiatus during which lead singer Roy Loney departed the band, leaving guitarist Cyril Jordan as its de facto leader
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). 1. 30. Shake Some Action. This was the Groovies' first album after founder/guitarist Cyril Jordan reformed the band with Chris Wilson replacing the departed Roy Loney as lead singer and is their crowning achievement, the Holy Grail of all Groovies albums, and one of the best albums I own.
The Shake Some Action album and its follow-up, Flamin' Groovies Now, also produced by Edmunds, did reasonable well in England but suffered from a lack of promotion in America, as Sire Records became preoccupied with new signings Ramones and Talking Heads.

Shake Some Action" itself is a minor masterpiece of jangling, harmony-soaked guitar pop, an instantly memorable song that piles wave upon wave of hooks on a solid backbeat, all wrapped up in big, wet reverb. It's a classic in every way except one: Almost nobody's heard it. A shame, because it's just the tip of the iceberg on an album stuffed with great tunes . The Groovies made only one more good album (Flamin' Groovies Now!), before embarking on a confusing series of relocations and reunions, but Shake Some Action stands as their crowning achievement.
