This song is the property of Gerald Austin/Curtis Dukes.
Veteran R&B group the Manhattans return after a fifteen year hiatus with their new single “Get It Ready.” The group has experienced the loss of Edward “Sonny” Bivins, Kenneth “Wally” Kelly and Winfred “Blue” Lovett, but lead singer Gerald Austin has soldiered on with David Tyson and Troy May. “Get It Ready” is a midtempo number about a man who has decided to cancel his other plans and spend time with his significant other instead. It has the classic sound fans have come to expect, with Austin’s tenor at the forefront. The group has issued a video for the song as well. It’s great to see and hear the Manhattans again after their long absence.
