ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"In their debut release “Action Packed”, the Action Zone offer up a genre-defying smorgasbord of musical styles, the common thread being simply great songwriting.

As the Beatles taught us, a musical offering need not be confined to a certain musical style, and such is the case with “Action Packed”. Touching on references as diverse as the Fab Four, Neil Young, the Stones, CS&N, Hall and Oates, the Allman Brothers, and 60's British pop, primary songwriter Jimmi Accardi and band deliver 16 thoroughly enjoyable songs that surprise the listener at every turn.

From the gorgeous harmonies of opener “Somewhere Guy” to the full-out extended rocker “Come Back To Me”, to the blue-eyed soul of “If Only In Our Dreams”, we are reminded that good music comes in many forms and styles.

The Action Zone's “Action Packed” accomplishes what few releases have in recent times – a memorable journey down a diverse musical road that is filled with delightful surprises. And like any good journey, one wants to repeat repeat it over and over.”

— Maybelline Gibson

The Action Zone is headed by guitarist and songwriter Jimmi Accardi. Accardi has a long list of musical credentials including studio work, the 80's recording band The Laughing Dogs, recording with Harry Nilsson, and touring with Chubby Checker and the Monkees. The band includes guitarist and the CD's co-producer Jonathan Lyerly, bassist Stephen Sheppard, and drummer Charlie Nickrenz.

Recording notes: "The basic tracks for this CD were recorded live, together in one room, in order to capture the energy and spontaneity of the group playing together. Many of the guitar solos were also recorded live during the basics, resulting in an “on the edge” quality that we like. To minimize 'bleed' into the drum mics, we drove vintage Auratone speakers from the guitar amps, at low volume. These 4 1/2” speakers, when miced with a SM58 dead center on the cone (about 5” away) record much bigger than one would expect!" — Action Johnny
