This is 1977 and RAY RUSSELL having started his musical career playing with George Fame & Blue Fames then appeared in the musical HAIR where he met ALEX HARVEY, formed with Alex ROCK WORKSHOP and released two ground breaking albums. He was then working as an arranger and producer at DJM Records. Ray then got the opportunity to record his solo album “Ready Or Not” which is now re-released on CD for the first time with bonus tracks.

Today Ray composes music for Film and TV (Touch Of Frost) but his musical career has meant that along with his friends MO FOSTER and SIMON PHILLIPS, both of whom appear on this CD, that between them they have worked with major artists as diverse as JEFF BECK, GIL EVANS, The WHO, TINA TURNER, PHIL COLLINS, GERRY RAFERTY, CAT STEVENS, JOAN ARMATRADING and JUDIE TZUKE.

KAPLAN KAYE who was A&R Manger at DJM in 1977 said recently “I am delighted this CD is being released as it as stood the test of time and is a testament to Ray’s undoubted talents as a Guitarist, Arranger and Writer”
