Editorial Reviews

The 20th Century Masters series is the best-selling single-artist line in music history and is being re-released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in its ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to being "green."

To further reduce the amount of paper in the Eco-Pack, the CD booklet will no longer be offered. Official liner notes are easily accessible on the Internet at http://www.ilovethatsong.com/green.

UMe is the first North American music company to replace the traditional jewel case with recycled paperboard sleeves and the plastic tray with trays made from PaperFoam®, a new packaging technology from Shorewood Packaging, a business of International Paper, that is paper-recyclable and biodegradable. Shorewood Packaging is the first North American packaging supplier to produce disc trays from PaperFoam®.

I have always been a fan of Ready for the World from the start. Every song was a hit for me. My favorite was "love you down, Whose is it, tonight and so many more." I just hate to hear haters like the review before me of Mike Patterson. There are several artist that may sound like someone else or have similar lyrics.....but in the music business it comes down to who gets the break and who doesn't. Well, I have never heard of Mike Patterson and probably never will. Ready for the World had their fame and they could be back you never know. JUST QUIT HATING.........Lay back and enjoy the music - cause you know its good.

I used to listen to Ready for the World songs, when I was
a young child. I just love their songs!! I like most of them like: "Love You Down", "Oh Sheila", "Tonight" and "Slide Over." My favorite song is "Love You Down." I think old-time R&B songs sounded so much better, than new R&B songs today. I like to bring back the hits and oldies in my mind. I grew up as a child listening to Ready For The World, Prince, Michael Jackson, Jermain Jackson, Surface, and others. Much love for Ready for the World, because they are my favorite group. I would give them 100 stars, more than 5 stars. They sounded so romantic and I like to listen to them everyday!

This is a must have CD for anyone who enjoyed Ready for the World's 80s hits. As someone who owned RFTWs tapes (yes...back in the day when you bought either LPs or tapes!), I was very happy to come across this greatest hits collection. It really does have all the RFTW songs that you could possibly want.

This cd bought back so many memories from my jr. high days! Especially "oh sheila" which quickly became my theme song since my name is so close to Sheila! This is the sexiest cd ever.

When I saw this album, I went nuts! Long overdue that they did a millennium collection for this group! Ready for the World tore it up in the '80s with their music! They had a little of Prince's sound in their music but managed to stay original afterwards. All my favorites are on here, including Oh Sheila, My Girly, Love You Down, Mary Go Round, Digital Display, Tonight, Gently, Straight Down To Business and others. They accomplished a lot in 4 albums with MCA and they had some funky stuff that even rivaled Prince's band in most cases! I like the fact that they're still performing today. They packed quite a lot on here for 73 minutes! But this album recalls their early glory and all those memorable tracks!

This is one purchase that I have been wanting to make for a long time.I am thrilled top have found this gem of a groups Cd on Amazon. It has all of the songs that made RFTW a household name. It felt so good to pop it in my CD player and jam to all their hits. It was a beautiful stroll that I took down memory lane.There are some major great uptempo and slow jams on here! It is a mu8st have for any serious Ready For The world Cd. I wish that the guys would reunite and give the fans another album. They are amazing. Hoping for a future UNSUNG episode about these guys!

This CD is great! It has all their best songs in extended versions. I've loved Ready for the World since I was 13, so I was excited about this CD. I highly recommend it.
