What a great record this is. Killer fuzz guitar, good jams and excellent cover versions make this a keeper. I hadn’t played this in awhile and I was pleasantly surprised. Great recording as well. Very dynamic sounding to me.

It was just fine that the original version of “Get Ready” was penned by Smokey Robinson and released as an answer to support The Duck dance craze, and sung in an uptempo falsetto by Eddie Kendricks with The Temptations.

Nevertheless, it’s the Rare Earth single, the long version, that noted the band so much praise. Rare Earth was not the only white band to be signed to the Motown label, but they were the first with a bona fide hit with this single, a ten minute intoxicating opus being stretched out to at times to over thirty minutes, filled with solos, and closing all Rare Earth live events, though honestly, having witnessed this, the song was entirely too long. The B-side, “Magic Key,” is another fast tempo that makes use of mixolydian chord progressions (Mixolydian mode refers to one of three things: the name applied to one of the ancient Greek harmoniai or tonoi, based on a particular octave species or scale; one of the medieval church modes; a modern musical mode or diatonic scale, related to the medieval mode. The modern diatonic mode is the scale forming the basis of both the rising and falling forms of Harikambhoji in Carnatic music, the classical music form of southern India) with Rare Earth seeming apply all of these aspects as they paved the way toward a progressive sound with direct R&B overtones.

To that end, Rare Earth was the first band associated with Motown’s new label Rare Earth, named after the band, though the label lasted for but two short years. As good as the song was, Rare Earth fell into an odd category, seeming that their psychedelic soul wasn’t good enough to be attracted to the labels supporting white acts, and then going on to do other fiery cover versions of songs by black artists such as “I Know I’m Losing You” by The Temptations. Later that same year (1970), Rare Earth was quasi slapped in the face by the Gil Scott Heron poem “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” with to the line “The theme song to the revolution will not be written by Jim Webb, Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash, Engelbert Humperdinck, or the Rare Earth.” All of the artists mentioned in the verse were of course white men, men who in one way or another were deemed to have capitalized on and exploited black artists by turning black music white.

Forming in 1960 as the Sunliners (named after the Ford Galaxie Sunliner automobile) before changing their name, and due to a lack of original material for this album, they actually did record a twenty-one minute version of “Get Ready.”. Though it wasn’t until they pulled out the most infectious three minutes from that track to create their first single that they got noticed by white radio and took the world by storm. Sadly Rare Earth changed lineups so often that fans couldn’t or wouldn’t keep up, as each change resulted in a variation of the original music, and truth be told, though they did release another wasted bit of psychedelic soul with “Hey, Big Brother,” Rare Earth simply was unable to light the match again, or keep up with the times.

While the rest of the album was so-so, especially with four of the six tracks being cover material, the title track has gone down in history, and certainly should be explored by everyone.

Taken From Rear of Outer Sleeve:

What you'll hear on these two sides will be Rare Earth music - put together and perfected through tireless hours on stages, on the road and in the recording studio.

"Getting Ready" - a piece that has stirred commotion wherever it's heard. Starting with a basic tune, "Getting Ready" then allows each guy to jam individually. Every performance is different; this is just one of them.

Although nowadays the LP sounds a bit outdated "Feeling Alright" (5:00 / D. Mason) remains a strong track, the jam session "Get Ready" (21:30 / William "Smokey" Robinson), once settled into it's stride, stays compelling.
