Barbara Mason Was Ready

Barbara Mason had recorded a few songs as a Philadelphia teenager back in the mid-sixties, but none became big hits until the summer of '65. That's when Yes I'm Ready was released, and it would eventually climb to number five on Billboard's Hot 100 pop music chart, and number two on the R&B chart.

Yes I'm Ready was written and produced by the same group of talented musicians who would go on half a decade later to create the Philly soul sound of the O'Jays, Spinners, and other artists. Barbara Mason wouldn't have any other hits until 1973, when her version of Give Me Your Love from the Curtis Mayfield-written score of the movie Superfly became a top twenty hit. Yes I'm Ready would be a Top 10 hit a decade later, in 1980, in a version by Teri DeSario and K.C. of K.C. & The Sunshine Band. This is one of the great slow dance hits of the mid-sixties, Barbara Mason, and Yes I'm Ready. In True Stereo. @therealdonrocks
