Ready, Steady, Go! was the pre-eminent British music television show of the 1960s, and for many, it remains the most influential pop culture vehicle of any era. If that seems a bold claim to assert, it’s worth considering virtually all music television that has followed owes a debt to RSG!’s pioneering spirit. As well as presenting the top artists of the day, and giving vital early exposure to future stars, perhaps its most important feature was that its club-like atmosphere removed the barrier separating artist and performer, giving RSG! an atmosphere of vibrance and immediacy other pop programmes lacked. In addition, the unprecedented move of handing the key role of a young, fashion-conscious Mod who uncannily mirrored her audience inadvertently gave birth to what later became known as “Youth TV”.

This collection of 10 vinyl singles represents a selection of 20 songs that were performed on RSG! between 1963-66. The diversity of the artists illustrates the panoply of styles the show covered, and why it is still fondly regarded.
