READY WILLING AND ABLE
(with Jimmy Holiday)
SOFT AND GENTLE WAYS

Clydie King released Ready, Willing and Able with Jimmy Holliday. The track was a floor filler and a major hit on the Manchester soul scene in the 1960s. Jimmy Holiday was already very popular due to his track How Can I Forget (1963).

Bob Dylan, Clydie King and Mona Lisa Young

Clydie started out in 1956 with her group The Teens and then sang with Ray Charles’ Raelettes for three years before working as a session singer for Phil Spector in the sixties.

She made Only The Guilty Cry but it was such a rip off of the Drifters repertoire and so similar to Stand By Me that it got nowhere.
