"Ready 'n' Steady" is a song written by D. A. Lucchesi and Jim Franks, and performed by D. A. The song appeared on Billboard magazine's Bubbling Under the Hot 100 chart for three weeks in June 1979. For many years, neither the record, nor any information about it or the artist, could be found, leading many collectors to consider it a "phantom record" until a recording surfaced in 2016.
In 2016, investigation into a "United States Copyright Office" copyright registration by Paul Haney, of Record Research Inc., led to co-author Jim Franks, who provided Haney with a recording of the song. According to Haney, the song was recorded but never pressed as a vinyl record or offered for sale.
