Album Review

Time for Action: The Very Best of Secret Affair lives up to its title, offering 20 of the band's biggest hits and finest songs. Predictably, the collection focuses primarily on their classic debut album (it's here in its entirety), but it also does a good job of picking the high points of the two lesser albums that followed (four tracks from Business as Usual make their CD debut). In truth, few need more than the fad-defining single, "Time for Action," but for those who need more, this collection is ideal.

Why the Partial Album Status???

Firstly, there is no need for this to be a partial item peddling....Secondly, the official review shows the clear failings to understand the mod scene of the late 70's in the UK. It was no fad, it was a blessing of musically accomplished bands in contrast to the brash rubbish of the fading punk scene at the time. Those of us who lived it still get a rush listening to these songs...yeh, time for action was an anthem....but the Glory Boys wrote a soundtrack for the lives of the scooter riding, parka wearing youth of the era.....don't intellectualise it beyond what it was/is.
