“I’m Ready” was late in the run of Fats Domino hits when it was released in 1959. As a college English major, I am always amused by his boast “Don’t send me no letters cause I can’t read”. Imagine bragging about that! It’s a very concise record – about two minutes long.
The Band covered it in 1973 on the covers album Moondog Matinee with Levon Helm singing.
