Good 'N' Ready is an album by American singer Sybil, released in 1993. It includes the singles "The Love I Lost" (UK #3),[1] "When I'm Good and Ready" (UK #5), "Beyond Your Wildest Dreams" (UK #41) and "Stronger Together" (UK #41).[2] The first six tracks on the album are produced by Mike Stock and Pete Waterman.

Background[edit]

The album was only released in Europe. In the US, Sybil released the album Doin' It Now! a few months earlier, sharing four songs with this album, but overall having a different sound: while Good 'N' Ready mixes her soul sound with the Stock/Waterman Euro-house, Doin' It Now!' is more straightforward American R&B/soul of that time. The song "You're the Love of My Life", included on both albums, was released as a US-only single.

The songs "Make It Easy on Me" and "Open Up the Door", included on this album, had been previously released on Sybil's 1990 album Sybilization, and released as singles in 1990 and 1991 respectively, although the versions included on Good 'N' Ready are new mixes.

The album was first released in the UK in June 1993, where it peaked at #13, Sybil's highest charting album in that country. When it was released in Europe, it had a different track listing, eliminating the remixes found at the end of the UK version in favour of some songs that had been included on the Doin' It Now! album.
