Be Ready (Chrism R-7808) 1978



Be Ready finds Hope Of Glory at their most soulful, delivering polished brassy swinging grooves that give Sweet Comfort Band some serious competition. Good r&b dance-floor energy and guitar riffs are unleashed within slick disco rockers like the title track, ‘Chosen People’ and Pat Terry’s ‘Back In The Woods’. ‘Antiseptic Christian’ has a slow snaky fimk groove ala Gary S. Paxton – not surprising since it was written by Paxton, plus Paxton’s the producer (sure sounds like him singing it, too). Filled in with some jazzy saxophone pop (‘I Can’t See Me Servin’ Nobody But Jesus’) and MOR/easy-listening ballads (‘Heart Of A King’, ‘Jonathan’, Pat Terry’s ‘Shelter In The Storm’). Gate-fold cover, clear yellow/gold vinyl. Subtle Bee Gees look to the back cover photo. ‘
