This is the first-ever compilation of Thom Bell's productions and arrangements. Put together by Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley, "Ready Or Not" combines some of Bell's biggest and best-loved hits with rarities (an original copy of Connie Stevens' 'Tick Tock' would set you back more than £200) and lesser-known work such as Dionne Warwick's seductive 'Track Of The Cat' and Johnny Mathis' epic 'Life Is A Song Worth Singing'. Star names including Laura Nyro and Lesley Gore line up alongside soul legends Dee Dee Sharp and the Delfonics. This collection will appeal to northern soul collectors as well as pulling in fans of sixties girl singers and lovers of smooth seventies soul. Bob Stanley's sleeve notes - with a rare exclusive interview with Bell himself - and a wealth of rare photos are icing on the cake. Bell's unique and instantly identifiable Philly sound has proved timeless.
