First U.S. CD release for this long out-of-print classic. When Shake Some Action blasted onto the tired 1976 music scene, the Groovies' Dave Edmunds-produced update on British Invasion style, along with the Ramones debut that same year were the early tremors of the punk shockwave that has resonated for decades. Detailed liner notes by music historian and current Groovies bassist Alec Palao.
Overdue and Worth the Wait

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This jingly-jangly gem has long been overdue for a proper remastering. I'm glad to say they did it well. The sound is crisp and clean, the way it should be, and it jumps out of the speakers with a solid pressence that did not come across in the original CD release on the Aim label. The extensive liner notes give a detailed account of what was going on with the band at that particular point in their history and puts the music in perspective. Sadly, there are no bonus tracks; however this one is well worth the rather high price. I am most thankful. Anybody want to buy my old copy? Thought not! Note: I originally gave this 4 stars. I must have been feeling ungenerous that day. Upon re-listening yesterday, I wanted to give it 6."
