Ready For Love (1989)


"Ready For Love" was released two months after the first single, "After The War", and thanks to Virgin Records it was available in several different formats. Unfortunately, the timing wasn't the best for this single, because it was released right before the tour start, despite of that the band didn't play the song on the concerts, so this single just disappeared from the lists after three short weeks without any notable impact. It was reaching only No.56 as the highest position on the UK Singles chart, but at least we can see the original recording line-up in the video, featuring Cozy Powell on drums.
