The Action now set about gathering original new material for a projected LP, but recording demos in a radically different Byrds-influenced psychedelic style failed to secure them their hoped-for recording deal (the 1967/68 demos were eventually released in the 1990s under the title 'Rolled Gold'). With the band seemingly having reached an impasse, and with vocalist Reg King's behaviour becoming increasing unpredictable, he departed the band in mid-1968.

Also known as 'Brian'. Something to say. Love is all. Icarus. Things you cannot see. Brain. Climbing up the wall. Really doesn't matter. Little boy. Follow me. In my dream.

Rolled Gold' isn't a collection of instant pop songs but it has a high curiosity quotient and grows on you quickly. A collection of demos for an album that never came to pass, "Rolled Gold" finds mod heroes The Action on top form. Even as demos, the brilliance of these songs is unmistakable. The feel here is similar to that of "Odessey & Oracle" by The Zombies.
