Oh Sheila !




Few interesting info about Ready For The World except the fact that it's an American band formed in Flint by Melvin Riley and Gordon Strozier.


Group which will remain mainly in the musical history of this end of the 20th century for the single "Oh Sheila" which will be released in 1985.


For this reason alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1984...first single and first success. An ideal start to their career, as they say, and which de facto positions them as one of the groups 'to follow'...



1985... a know-how in the Intimist which is clearly confirmed with this new title. Even if this title will do a little less well than its predecessor, it is clear that this group really has talent...



1985...from the 3rd title, it's the jackpot and this time on a 100 % Dance title. The group will quite simply win here the biggest success of all its discography and enter in a sensational way into the musical history of this end of the 20th century. MAS-TER-FUL !



1985...difficult for this title to compete with the huge previous steamroller. But it will come out of it better than expected all things considered...



1986...unfortunately, the relapse in the Charts will be as fast as the meteoric rise that the group will have known during the year 1985. Cruel reversal of situation...



1986... the group still manages to save the furniture for a while in the R&B Charts but it will be its only lifeline...



1986...we thought the group was doomed to disappear in the short term and here they are, coming back into the race in a totally unexpected way. Like what, in music, you should never let go, the proof !



1987...the upturn was unfortunately short-lived. The group relapses directly behind and this time he will never come back in contact with the best...



1987... which does not prevent him from continuing the adventure, come what may. No matter the result in the Charts, the main thing for them is to participate...



1987... this title will pass squarely 'through' and yet it is far from undeserving. But the public has already left to see elsewhere and does not intend to return anytime soon at first sight...



1988 ... when we thought the case was definitely folded, they will still manage to obtain a last big hit with this title. But it will be the last...



1988...from now on they do more some figuration than anything else and we sincerely wonder if it's worth it to continue under these conditions. They believe it anyway...



1989...but only they believe it now. Another title that will pass 'through'. It's starting to get a lot...



1991...we will lose sight of them for 2 years and here they are back in this new decade of the 90s in a form that we will describe as relative. Sufficient anyway to exist a little on the front of the stage...



1991... the adventure will not go further than this title. And yet when you see what they are going to deliver here you really wonder why. Sometimes you don't have to try to understand...



1995...at least it won't go any further on the Charts side because no title will be ranked anymore, as much on the album side as on the Singles side...



1995... that does not prevent them from continuing the adventure in their own way and above all outside of any pressure from the top level. Just for fun as they say...



2004...and here they are again ! This new album, to say the least unexpected, will not bring much new to their discography but at least has the merit of existing...



2004...a musical style that hardly changed from start to finish. A strength as much as a weakness necessarily...
