Rare Earth's edition of the 20th Century Masters series is a near-definitive collection of their singles for Motown. Over the course of seven tracks, all the group's biggest hits — "Get Ready," "(I Know) I'm Losing You," "Born to Wander," "I Just Want to Celebrate," "Hey Big Brother," and "What'd I Say" — are included, all in their original album versions. This means "(I Know) I'm Losing You" runs over ten minutes, "Ma" over 17, and "Get Ready" a shattering 21-plus minutes. This is means that it's for the serious casual fan, since these extended versions certainly demand patience. Still, this gives a good idea of what Rare Earth was about, and that makes it a first-rate compilation.
I have been waiting for this release and to have the songs Get Ready, (I Know) I'm Losing You, in their complete Original Extended Versions makes buying the album well worth it!!! The other songs including I Just Want To Celebrate, where also popular hit's with the musical group! A Must Have For Music Lovers!
Great Shakes by Rare Earth
Rare Earth was not the most sophisticated band in its heyday, but their music was always exuberant. This group of songs is a good representative sample of what made them who they were - a fun, upbeat group of musicians who had a knack for creating songs that got the listener moving and tapping one's fingers replaying them mentally afterward. Their long version of "Get Ready" is a classic.
Get ready for Get Ready
The song Get Ready is a musical delight in suspense and intrigue. Amazing how Rare Earth holds you on the edge for 21+ minutes
