I always have liked Rare Earth too.

I still have most of their albums, including their first (1968, before they went to Motown, and including their original, first recording of "Get Ready") and the original 1970 "Get Ready" LP with the rare first-pressing rounded top.


Looking through the YouTube listings I counted what appeared to be almost a hundred different posts of various versions of "Get Ready" but I was surprised not to see anywhere the original version, from that 1968 album on YouTube.

I wonder, in fact, even when the song was a hit in 1970, how many fans even were aware (then and now) that the hit version everyone knows was a remake of an older song from the band's first album.

This is so awesome. Thank you all!


I was feeling so down this morning. I looked at my calendar and saw I had taken one day off from working my jobs in the last 22 days, and I shouldn't do that. Wears me out. I have been so busy that I didn't even have time to post a calendar in one place to incorporate it all.


Then I read your comments about Rare Earth and GFR most excellent number.


Rare Earth did that so many times and so many subtle ways (had the great 2 disc concert set--the one in the "Army Surplus backpack" design) I loved that version too! In radio, the disc jockeys thought it perfect break music- they could actually take the break and few listeners complained.. I always thought it was something they didn't want to repeat the same every time, with each member providing his own interpretation to the tune.


I will now listen to Grand Funk Railroad again. Yeah, I need to get to work again this morning. No time..


Wasn't that a Guess Who hit?

Is it a lovely morning yet on the West Coast? I am in SWFL, and so its a bit like the West Coast, but it is truly filled with some real cranks and more than it fair share of wingnuts. In spite of what other's may say, the crazies are here, sporting sidearms, with mullets and a twang.


It's a great place to write comedy.


Peace reigns here again; the "snowbirds" for the most part have returned home up north and we can enjoy our Spring.


Good morning!

Hi, Casablancalover,

It is a beautiful morning here California! B-)

Glad to hear that things are staring to return to "normal" there in SWFL.

It appears that both coasts seem to attract the crazies (we've got our share too), must be the great weather that attracts them. :D


Hope you're enjoying your morning.

I like the Little Rascals theme.. Never knew the title, I must have listened to it hundreds of times.


And, Moonlight Becomes You is a favorite! Thanks for the great link!

Like that Sinatra version too. Good choice!


Yes, I thought about using "When The Moon Comes Over The Mountain", but I thought it was a little too obvious. "Makin' Faces At The Man In The Moon" was the flip side on the 78 rpm issue of "When The Moon Comes Over The Mountain" when it was first issued in 1931. :)


Wanted to add one more moon song:
