Whitesnake fool for your loving

Ready an' Willing is the third studio album by English hard rock band Whitesnake, released in 1980. It peaked at No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart, it was also the band's first to chart outside of the UK reaching No. 32 in Norway and No. 90 in the US.


The album featured two of the band's UK single-hits from that year: "Fool for Your Loving" had reached No. 13 in the charts in April 1980, and the title-track, "Ready an' Willing (Sweet Satisfaction)" made No. 43 in July of the same year. In August 1980 "Fool for Your Loving" peaked at No. 53 on the Billboard Hot 100; the song would later be re-recorded for the Slip of the Tongue album. The track "Blindman", initially from David Coverdale's first solo album, was re-recorded for this album.
