Are You Ready for Freddy? is an album by Freddy Fender. It was released in 1975 on Dot Records and is a collaboration between the singer and producer Huey P. Meaux. Of the 12 songs on the record, two were written by Fender, "Cielito Lindo Is My Lady" and "You Came In The Winter Of My Life". Of the rest, "Lovin' Cajun Style" is a song written by the album's producer. As well, Fender covers the novelty song "(How Much Is) That Doggie In The Window?", which was originally a Billboard chart-topper for singer Patti Page in 1953. The disc also features a remake of the Ray Charles classic "What'd I Say" and the song "I'm Not Through Loving You Yet", which was co-written by legendary country singer Conway Twitty (a number 3 country hit for Twitty the year prior, which featured on the album of the same name). allmusic's Eugene Chadbourne gave the disc high praise (4 stars of a possible 5), and said that Fender "can take on elements as disparate as Doris Day and Ray Charles and make a listener forget either of these icons even exist." He compared the playing on the record to "an incredibly hip, funky Tex-Mex band hired to play at a wedding."
I base the condition of each of my Records off of Ebay's Grading System.
• MINT (M) Looks new and unplayed. Very high vinyl luster and no noticeable label defects. Sounds new. With 45rpm records, this does not always mean there is no surface noise at all.
• NEAR MINT (NM) Looks almost new, but has some minor flaws such as a drill hole; unobtrusive writing on label (e.g., an X on a promo copy); minor scuffing on vinyl; minor color flaking on label, or other insignificant flaws that only slightly detract from visual appeal. May have some minor surface noise, but nothing distracting.
• VERY GOOD (VG) There may be light scuffing and some of the original vinyl luster may be lost. The vinyl and label may appear used, but well cared for. Records may have some more obvious flaws that are not visually degrading such as a sticker on the label; more noticeable writing on the label; scuffing and minor scratches on the vinyl; or minor discoloration of the label. There may be very minor warping of the vinyl. There may be a slight scratch not affecting play.
• GOOD (G) Record has visible signs of handling and playing, such as loss of vinyl luster, minor surface scratches, groove wear, and audible surface noise. Appears well used but not abused. May have a few major flaws, such as scratches, label tears, or stickers, and/or writing.
• FAIR (F) Appears well used and somewhat abused. Audio is not great due to surface noise and scratches. The record may have a stick or a skip. Records in this condition are those you might purchase to fill a hole in your collection until a better copy comes along.
• POOR (P) Well played with little luster and significant surface noise, but still not cracked or broken. Record likely skips and/or sticks. Typically so bad looking that a true “collector” would just toss it out. More useful as a Frisbee. I try not to sell records in this condition.
