Release notes from Kent/Ace Website

This Kent single has been eagerly awaited for some time. Plays at the 100 Club and other venues of ill-repute, has made it a must-play, dancefloor-filling track.

Carolyn Crawford had a brief sojourn at Mickey Stevenson’s Mpingo label, in the early 70s, as a temporary member of Hodges, James & Smith when they were billed as The Firm Of Hodges, James, Smith & Crawford. Stevenson International’s tapes revealed that Mickey had also cut some solo tracks with Carolyn. ‘Ready Or Not Here Comes Love’ has already wowed the Northern Soul world; this fabulous self-written song will cross over to all scenes. Its slow, steady, groove start builds up to an infectious rhythm that few can resist. Congas abound and a subtle brass section layers the music to perfection. The jazz element will see this 45 accepted on all rare black music scenes.

The flip ‘Sugar Boy’ is more typical of Carolyn and Mickey’s time at Motown with a bouncy beat and appropriately cute lyrics. Both sides debut here.
