  1. Steve, this reply only goes to you, right? Just a note to let you know that Gettin’ Ready Today was written by Joe Hatfield only. It was published by Rambo Music and recorded by the Rambos, but Dottie did not co-write it with him. Joel Hatfield sang with the Rambos when they were the Gospel Echoes in the early 60s. By the way, I liked your links to the actual song performance. That added a nice touch.

    Thanks, Jerry Boor
