December 8, 1973

“If You’re Ready (Come Go with Me)” is a song by the Staple Singers. Released from their album Be What You Are, the single spent three weeks at number one on the Billboard magazine’s Hot Soul Singles chart in 1973. It peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart.[1] It became a gold record.

The arrangement, tempo, cadence, and melody reflect more constant uptempo than the group’s 1972 number 1 hit “I’ll Take You There”.
