im not ready

Northen soul classic 'I'm not Ready' by Ujima is uplifting, life affirming, love confirming and an all round song for life. Ujima hailed from Richmond in Virginia and later became Anglo Saxon Brown, even later they evolved into Silk. 'Im Not Ready', the b side of their 1975 single 'A Shoulder to Lean on' is tough to find and yes, it goes for serious money (one page i was reading claims sightings of upward of $1000), anyway it really is that good... (Paul Weller's Style Council definitely took notes)
