Ready for the World

Michigan based soul sensation Ready For The World had a string of hits in the mid 1980s masterminded by music industry guru and management specialist Steven Machat. Machat steered the band to a brace of number ones, the song Sheila released in 1985 followed up by Love You Down in 1986. Shiela was a crossover hit simultaneously topping three Billboard charts and was also a hit across Europe. The band went on to have a number of successful singles and albums including Long Time Coming which reached number nine in the album charts. As the 1980s drew to a close the band started to run out of creative steam and failed to emulate their early successes and in 1991 the band mutually agreed to split . Lead singer Melvin Riley went on to record a couple of solo albums and in 2004 brought out a reunion album She Said She Wants Some followed up in 2011 by Love, Money and Music, both released on the Thump label.
