Allmusic.com gave Get Ready a 3 star review:

Rare Earth’s Motown debut is as well-oiled as a new V-8, and so are its liner notes: “In this age of ego-tripping freak bands, Rare Earth has stood pretty much alone. Each cat stands handsomely tall as if from a fashion rack at Carnaby. They do their gig; do it well — and split.” Smirking aside, the band turns in a smoothly harmonized “In Bed” and a chugging rhythm section for “Train to Nowhere.” But the core of this release is a live side-long monster version of “Get Ready.” It’s as driven by the crowd’s rapturous response as by the various solos, and the snake-charmer sax improv by Gil Bridges is easily the highlight of the album.
