  1. The Parrack/Wilburn/Trammell years are my favorite for Gold City, and while Are You Ready isn’t one of my top 3 or 4 albums from that period, it still easily beats out Live. “Are You Ready” is one of the best Second Coming songs I know, “Since Jesus Touched Me” is awesome, and “Get Up, Get Ready” is probably the most enduring song off of this recording.

    1. “Are You Ready” is special to me for a lot of reasons, but I will say that “Keep Me On the Wheel” is one of my favorite cuts of all time. Jonathan is amazing, the arrangement with the other guys singing “keep me, keep me” is, too, and I love the track. I have to listen to this song over and over…and would whether it was mine or not! I’ve loved every GC cut I ever had!

  2. This is super tough for me. These are my top two favorite Gold City albums of all time, and each for different reasons. I’ll have to ponder this one a while.

  3. Both of these would be near the bottom for me of GC recordings. If give Live a slight edge just because I thought Are You Ready was about (if not) their worst
