Foreigner (1984) Reaction To Action CAN 12″
Three years following the multi-platinum album ‘4’, Foreigner returned with ‘Agent Provocateur’ in 1984. The album contains Foreigner’s first and only #1 single on the Hot 100, “”I Want to Know What Love Is”. “That Was Yesterday” followed up as the second single and it reached #12. On today’s vinyl rip we’ll give a listen to the 3rd single from ‘Agent Provocateur’, “Reaction To Action”. The song, written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, failed to reach the Top 40, rising only as high as #54. A remix was commissioned for the single release and at the control board for that was Francois Kevorkian along with Frank Filipetti, Ron Saint Germain and Mick Jones. In this humble blogger’s opinion, the remix greatly improved on the track, the Long Version on Side A is a really great mix and a must listen for rock fans, grab your copy and give me some feedback down below…
