Get Ready was written by Smokey Robinson and recorded by The Temptations, The Supremes, Rare Earth and many others. Amongst those many others was The Sound Generation, a group of students at a private Christian college in Arkansas called John Brown University. This LP features one side of pop hits and one side of Christian music, and unlike many such records the pop hits ain’t too bad. Get Ready is easily the best track, and no doubt that’s why the album is named for it. With solid drumming, competent brass, and that unmistakably joyful chorus of believer’s voices, its one of the few Christian college LP tracks that can make you want to dance. But bear in mind, dancing for your own pleasure instead of in praise to God is frowned upon in the Bible. So don’t blame me if you get struck down by a lightening bolt.
