Before she unleased The Pandoras on an unsuspecting world, Paula Pierce was the lead guitarist/singer/ songwriter in Action Now, a garage power pop band hailing from Southern California's San Gabriel Valley. Using the original master tapes, thought lost for almost 20 years, the French-only "All Your Dreams" album has been mastered for CD for the first time by remastering genius Bill Inglot, who also originally produced seven of the studio tracks. Completing the story is "Try" from "Rodney On The ROQ, Vol. III" and a complete Action Now live show, mastered from the original two-track tape, rediscovered after 22 years. This CD contains the original version of "Stop Pretending ," the title song from The Pandoras' Rhino Records LP along with a live version of "Anyone But You," later recorded for that same 1986 Pandoras LP. In all, this collection features 26 songs never before on CD, 25 songs never released in the United States and five previously unreleased Paula Pierce-penned tunes. Playing alongside Paula and making the Action Now sound happen were Jim Schuster (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mike Lawrence (bass, vocals) and Scott Hillman (drums).
