5.0 out of 5 stars the mighty, Mighty Diamonds. 11 July 2002
By Ally
Format:Audio CD
The Mighty Diamonds -‘Get Ready’.
Do I really have to introduce the Mighty Diamonds to anyone here? Their sweet and soulful harmonies made them one of the most popular vocal harmony trios of the 70s and 80s, and their unique rockers sound continues to impress audiences all around the world today. Their Motown sound gives them a totally unique flavour from anything else that came out of Jamaica at that time.
The fabulous ‘Get Ready’ has to be one of their greatest albums and was produced by Gussie Clarke, who was without a doubt the hottest producer in Jamaica at that time. Clarke layered their sweet harmonies on top of catchy dancehall beats, to create unique and original tunes.
The album ‘Get Ready’ contains the outstanding tracks ‘I’m gonna take it east’, ‘Upfront’ and ‘Idlers Corner’ which features the legendary voice of Gregory Isacs. And if that isn’t enough, two previously unreleased tunes have been added to the already outstanding album… and believe me, you MUST hear these track, it is a crime they weren’t released earlier! I guarantee you will be impressed by this soulful classic from the mighty, Mighty Diamonds.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for any reggae collection! 27 Oct 2013
By Shawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album that shows the Mighty Diamonds adapting to some changing trends in Reggae music while retaining their roots and soulful sound. Instead of classic riddims, the tunes on the Get Ready album have more driving bass lines. The electronic sounds of the keyboards & drums reveal that this release id from the heart of the 80s, but are still very tastefully done! If you already own the "Go Seek Your Rights" album, "Get Ready" is the perfect addition to round out a Mighty Diamonds collection! Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars If you like real instruments, don't buy this CD 15 May 2003
By Jason Marglon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was looking for roots songs that I'd heard on a mix somebody made, "Mr. Bodyguard" being one of them. It was the right song, only remade in the newer digital...style of reggae post-1985. If...Casio style drums and keyboards are your bag, you'll probably [get excited] over this disc. I put one star because they don't offer 0 stars or negative stars.
