GET READY * DION CAMERON AND THE THREE TOPS * RIO 111 * UK
Rio had not only got the group name right on this release, but they also named the lead singer. There seems to be two songs running in parallel here, one is Dion singing about the mistakes he has made with his loved-one and how he intends to make it up to her, the other, is an appeal to everybody to get ready to search, although for what is not clear. Dion Cameron has a great voice, sort of woody and honeyed and well suited to songs of trouble and strife, especially in a Rock Steady vein.
