Darrell Mansfield – Get Ready – 1980

This was the first album using the moniker “Darrell Mansfield Band” It is actually the 3rd album from Darrell Mansfield. The first used the name “Gentle Faith” and the second was a self titled album.

The southern blues sound of this album was well received in the CCM community, though strangely the album was on a secular label, “Polydor”.

The lead track “Get Ready” sets the tone for the album and the album rocks from there on. In my opinion the track “Heaven Southwestern” is the “single” of the album.

Track Listing:
1 – Get Ready – 4:44
2 – Mr. Rock ‘N Roll – 4:08
3 – Above The Water – 6:18
4 – Billy Joe – 3:48
5 – Heaven Southwestern – 6:10
6 – Never Be The Same – 3:38
