Motown Monday Mania ~ Get Ready ~ Rare Earth

Written by Smokey Robinson.

Rare Earth in Concert 1971.

Recorded: Civic Coliseum – Jacksonville, FL., Marine Stadium – Miami, FL., Cornell University – Ithaca, NY and At The Pharmacy – The Roostertail, Detroit, Mi.

Rare Earth – Get Ready U.S. #4 – 1970

Pete Rivera ( a.k.a. Hoorelbeke ) : drums, lead vocals, percussion
Gil Bridges : woodwinds, vocals, percussion, flute
John Persh : bass, vocals
Ray Monette : guitars, vocals
Mark Olson : keyboards, vocals
Ed Guzman : conga, percussion

To me Pete Rivera’s drumming and John Persh’s bass Shined on this Live Recording.

From a time where you lived, breathed and experienced the muse. It was in and apart of your soul. Something we sadly no longer experience until these bands reunite and bring it all back. Luckily for most it has never left us.
