Gladys KnightBefore Me (with bonus track) ... CD
Verve, 2006. Used .... $6.99
Gladys Knight pays tribute to a range of singers who came before her – Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and others – all the while earning our respect for her new inflections of these classics! The style here is less "torch revival" than you'd expect – and in a surprising turn, Knight doesn't simply revisit the older modes of singing, but works here in a more progressive, more positive approach that's got a really bold sort of sound. Arrangements are by Billy Childs and John Clayton – and instrumentation is a mix of small combo backing and other numbers that feature the fuller Clayton/Hamilton Orchestra. Titles include "This Bitter Earth", "The Man I Love", "Come Sunday", "Stormy Weather", "I'll Be Seeing You", "But Not For Me", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me", and "God Bless The Child" – plus the bonus track "Teach Me Tonight".

Gladys KnightGladys Knight ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- .... $4.99
A really wonderful solo set by Gladys Knight – a record that has her stepping out strongly on her own, during a brief break from The Pips! The set's arranged by Gene Page – who mixes together strings and soul at a level that supports the classy style that Knight had forged at Buddah Records on previous records with her group – but which also gives her a bit more of a modern soul vibe overall, very much in the increasingly sophisticated style that other female singers were getting at the time. There's a few groovers, and some great mellow cuts – and titles include "You Loved Away The Pain", "It's The Same Old Song", "The Best Thing We Can Do Is Say Goodbye", "My World", and "You Bring Out The Best In Me".

Gladys Knight & The Pips2nd Anniversary (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1975. New Copy .... $13.99
The second anniversary of Gladys Knight & The Pips on Buddah Records – and an album that really shows the new level of depth the group were able to hit at the label! A key factor on the album is work by Eugene McDaniels – who produced the record, and wrote a good number of tracks too – really pushing Gladys and the group into righteous territory they wouldn't have touched a few years before – a deeper groove that really matches some of their best soundtrack material of the mid 70s! Gladys really stretches out wonderfully with her leads – and the Pips provide just the right sort of warm backdrop to hold things together. Titles include "Street Brother", "At Every End There's A Beginning", "Summer Sun", "Feel Like Making Love", and "Money". CD features bonus tracks that include "Money (long mix)", "We Don't Look For Trouble", "Alone Again", and "Rainbow Ride". CD

New Gladys Knight & The PipsAbout Love ... LP
CBS, 1980. Very Good+ .... $1.99
Gladys Knight with Ashford & Simpson – a perfect pairing of two post-Motown talents! Gladys Knight & The Pips are one of those groups that never stopped being great – and later albums like this are well worth tracking down, especially with the team of Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson making the quartet sound so great! As before, Gladys' lead vocals are tremendous – deeply soulful and always personal, quite far from any easy cliches – and supported wonderfully by the three male voices of The Pips. The Ashford & Simpson groove really helps keep things fresh, too – and the set's got a nice balance of uptempo cuts and some of the heartfelt mellow numbers Gladys always does so well. Titles include "Landlord", "Taste Of Bitter Love", "Get The Love", "Friendly Persuasion", "We Need Hearts", and a great reading of the club classic "Bourgie Bourgie". LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold .... $4.99
Although Gladys Knight & The Pips didn't cut their first recordings or their biggest recordings for Motown, they did still do a pretty nice job at the label – as you'll hear on this nice 2LP set that brings together a nice batch of their best tracks. Includes their original version of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", plus "The Nitty Gritty", "Tracks Of My Tears", "Every Little Bit Hurts", "Everybody Needs Love", "Neither One Of Us", and "Make Me The Woman That You Go Home To".

Gladys Knight & The PipsClaudine/Pipe Dreams ... CD
Buddah/Shout Factory, 1974/1976. New Copy .... $10.99 13.98
A great 2-in-1 from Gladys Knight & The Pips – the Claudine and Pipe Dreams soundtracks back to back on a single CD! Claudine is a wonderful mid 70s set from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a soundtrack date written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, who really helps bring a lot of depth to their music! Curtis really helps Knight and the group get out of some of their hit cliches of the 70s, and find some hipper space for the setting of the film – a mixture of some of the mellower tracks that Gladys' always sparkles on, mixed with some badder-stepping numbers that further deepen the groove – and which has kept the album alive over the years, thanks to some key hip hop samples. Tracks include the sublime "The Makings Of You", plus "Mr Welfare Man", "To Be Invisible", "Claudine Theme", "On and On", and "Hold On". After hitting big as a singer on the soundtrack for Claudine, Gladys Knight finally got her chance in front of the camera for Pipe Dreams – a record that featured her both as the star on film and on the soundtrack! The styles here are a bit more wider-ranging than the usual 70s soundtrack of this type – a bit of ballad soul, mellow numbers, and more – arranged by Dominic Frontiere and Michael Masser in styles that are a bit like some of Knight's own albums of the time. We like especially the jazzy vocalesey number "Pot Of Jazz", a nice number that deserves further discovery on a compilation – and other cuts include "Find A Way", "Follow My Dreams", "So Sad The Song", and "Alaskan Pipeline".

Gladys Knight & The PipsEverybody Needs Love ... CD
SOUL/Motown (Japan), 1967. New Copy .... $13.99
A great resurgence in the career of Gladys Knight – her debut for Motown Records, and the beginning of a new wave of sophistication and soul in her sound! The style here is much more polished than the R&B-tinged feel of her earlier recordings – a warmly growing sound that really set a new level for countless other soul acts in the 70s – especially in the way that her lead vocals are given full support by The Pips. Production is by Norman Whitfield, Johnny Bristol, and Harvey Fuqua – who all give Gladys a wonderfully full set of backings – and titles include her original recording of "Heard It Through The Grapevine", plus "Everybody Needs Love", "Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone", "Take Me In Your Arms and Love Me", and "Do You Love Me Just A Little Honey".

Gladys Knight & The PipsI Feel A Song (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1974. New Copy .... $13.99
Rock-solid Buddah work from Gladys Knight & The Pips – still pretty righteous on the vocal tip, but often a bit fuller and more polished than before! Knight shows a great talent for a mature ballad here – no big hits, but that's part of the charm of the set – as there's a personal, intimate quality to the tunes that also comes from the less-familiar nature of the lyrics. A few more tunes get a bit uptempo – to be expected when Tony Camillo's helping with production and arrangements – and the album features the great sample cut "Don't Burn Down The Bridge", plus the tracks "I Feel A Song", "Seconds", "Love Finds Its Own Way", "Better Go Your Way", "The Goings Up & The Comings Down", "Tenderness Is His Way", and "The Need To Be". CD featuers lots of bonus tracks, too – including "The Makings Of You", "Make Yours A Happy Home", "Make Yours A Happy Home (alt mix)", "To Be Invisible", "Hold On", "Mr Welfare Man", "The Way We Were/Try To Remember (single)", and "On & On (single)".

New Gladys Knight & The PipsImagination ... LP
Buddah, 1973. Very Good .... $1.99
A pivotal album for Gladys Knight and group – as the record features their super-huge hit "The Midnight Train To Georgia", a landmark track that not only had a catchy pop hook, but which spoke volumes about African-American migration in the postwar years. The track's one of those you've heard a million times, but it's got a strength that still holds up tremendously. Part of this is due to great production work by Tony Camillo – who handled arrangements and studio work on about half the tracks – and part is due to Jim Weatherly, who wrote the song, and about half the others on the album. The whole album's great – one of the best Buddah Records moments for the group – and titles include "I've Got To Use My Imagination", "Window Raising Granny", "Where Peaceful Waters Flow", "Once In A Lifetime Thing", "Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me", and "Storms Of Trouble Times".

Gladys Knight & The PipsIn The Beginning (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bell/FTG, Early 60s. New Copy .... $13.99
Really great pre-Motown music from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a collection of early singles that were issued by Vee Jay and the Fire/Fury labels, but which already show the group head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries! Many of these cuts are from the start of the 60s, and show the quartet working out the first modes of group soul in a really great way – balancing Gladys' strong lead with sublime harmonies from The Pips – often set to some excellent early compositions from Van McCoy, who gives the group a great deal of class right from the start. Titles include "Letter Full Of Tears", "Either Way I Lose", "Giving Up", "Stop & Get A Hold Of Myself", "Tell Her You're Mine", "Lovers Always Forgive", "Every Beat Of My Heart", and "Operator". CD adds in some nice bonus tracks too – "The Devil In Me", "Another Love", "Go Away Stay Away", "Why Don't You Love Me", and "Who Knows". CD

SOUL, 1974. Near Mint- .... $2.99
One of the last Gladys Knight albums for Motown – and seemingly a collection of work from a variety of different sessions, possibly put together to compete with her shift to Buddah Records in the mid 70s! The groove here is pretty great, often in a mode that's a bit more uptempo and righteous than some of the mellower Gladys Knight work that was dominating her hits at the time. Arrangements are by Wade Marcus, Artie Butler, Paul Riser, and others – and the record's got a warm glow without being too sleepy. Titles include "Ease Me To The Ground", "How Can You Say That Ain't Love", "Between Her Goodbye & My Hello", "We've Got Such A Mellow Love", "It's All Over But The Shouting", "Master Of My Mind", and "It Takes A Whole Lot Of Human Feeling".

The album's a mix of the mellower ballads that made Gladys one of the biggest female soul singers of the 70s, and some of the upbeat groovers that turned out to be a really great fit for the group's style – a mode that's not really disco, but which offers a strong mix of strings and rhythms. Tony Camillo and Van McCoy both bring some good production elements to the record – and titles include "Sorry Doesn't Always Make It Right", "Come Back & Finish What You Started", "It's A Better Than Good Time", "Saved By The Grace Of Your Love", "Butterfly", and "The One & Only".

Gladys Knight & The Pips sounding fresh and revitalized for the 80s on Touch from '81 – a batch of tunes both produced and penned by Ashford & Simpson! It's a pretty sweet mix of clean grooving, smoothed out soul gems and others with some strings and kind of bigger arrangements that look back a bit on earlier years. With Nick & Valerie at the helm, you can rest assured some hugely memorable hooks and glorious choruses are going to be big part of joyful soul here, and that does ring true!

Sweet 80s groove from Gladys Knight & The Pips – just the kind of record that shows why the group kept going strong for so many years! The classic approach is still very firmly intact – Gladys' wonderful lead, soaring out over the Pips' warm harmonies – a vocal power that so many other groups could never get this right – evolved amazingly here from the early soul years of the group's origins. The approach of the set is lean and smooth, yet turns out to be a perfect fit for the maturing Knight/Pips sound – a mode that still keeps them right out in front of the pack, with a great mix of grooving and sophistication. Titles include "Save The Overtime (For Me)", "Heaven Sent", "When You're Far Away", "Just Be My Lover", "Don't Make Me Run Away", "Ain't No Greater Love", "O La De Da", "You're Number One", and the longstanding classic "Hero (Wind Beneath My Wings)".

The set features a range of numbers, often in a mode that's a bit more uptempo and righteous than some of the mellower Gladys Knight work that was dominating her hits at the time – almost as if they'd been holding back on this stuff, to let her develop more of a southern soul ballad identity. Arrangements are by Paul Riser, David Van DePitte, and Robert White – and often show a bit of the growing 70s dancefloor sensibility creeping into Motown during the time. Gladys' vocals are still plenty real soul – soaring out over the tracks – and titles include "In The Middle Of The Road", "Come Together", "All I Need Is A Miracle", "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", and "Can You Give Me Love With A Guarantee".

The title cut is almost worth the price of the record alone – a slow-stepping, blue-tinged number that perfectly blends Knight's lead vocals and the warmer sounds of The Pips – but other tunes follow suit with an equally great sound – one that glows, grows, and flows beautifully as the album rolls on, and really sets the tone for a new sort of crossover vibe in the group. Titles include "If I Were Your Woman", plus "One Less Bell To Answer", "Here I Am Again", "Is There A Place (In His Heart For Me)", "Everybody Is A Star", "Your Love's Been Good To Me", "Signed Gladys", "One Step Away", and "I Don't Want To Do Wrong".

SOUL/Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A key moment in the career of Gladys Knight & The Pips – and a record that opens the group up to a whole new sound for the 70s! When Gladys Knight started out as a raw R&B-ish singer in the early 60s, nobody would have expected her to have such staying power – and to become one of the 70s best interpreters of mellow ballads. This album's more than proof that Knight had plenty of staying power, and the title hit "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" went onto become one of the decade's biggest mellow soul tracks. It's backed up here by a number of nice tracks that have a harder soul sound, and which are arranged by some of Motown's best talents of the early 70s. Titles include "It's Gotta Be That Way", "This Child Needs Its Father", "And This Is Love", "Don't It Make You Feel Guilty", and a cover of "Who Is She To You". CD

Almost a deeper soul sound than before from Gladys Knight – a record that features some very strong southern-styled production from Johnny Bristol and Clay McMurray – but in a way that reflects the new sort of "adult" mode of the time! The style here is a careful blend of the raspiness of Knight's roots and some of the changes going on in Memphis and Muscle Shoals – modes that are still a bit down home, but which show a more mature presentation of their themes – served up in arrangements by HB Barnum, David Van DePitte, and Paul Riser. Titles include "It Takes A Whole Lotta Man For A Woman Like Me", "Make Me The Woman That You Go Home To", "Master Of My Mind", and "No One Could Love You More". CD

SOUL (Japan), 1968. New Copy .... $13.99
A real lost gem from Motown! This was the only full album ever cut by The Monitors – a 3-man, 1-woman vocal group who were in a popular Motown mixed harmonies mode. The quartet had a wonderfully strong vocal presence – blasting away at most tracks with a strength that groups like The Miracles or Gladys Knight & The Pips could never match – and like those groups, they bridge that key period between late doo wop-oriented harmonies, and tighter 60s group soul. The LP brings together singles the Monitors cut for Motown during the previous few years, but it also works extremely well as a unified album – and it's a refreshing change from some of the oft-heard Motown material. Titles include "Greetings (This Is Uncle Sam)", "Number One In Your Heart", "Bring Back The Love", "Step By Step (Hand In Hand)", and "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music". CD

War/Curtis Mayfield/Kool & The GangFirst Annual Benefit Concert For The Congressional Black Caucus ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $13.99
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". CD

VariousFinders Keepers – Motown Girls 1961 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy .... $18.99
Female Motown, way past the hits – a wonderful selection of rare cuts from the 60s, including a dozen previously unissued tracks! The collection is a real discovery, even for Motown fans – and the set is filled with gems that go way past the obvious – some real Detroit soul treasures that make the whole thing a delight! Lots of the work is from that key early Motown stretch, when the label was really coming into its own, but still trying out a lot of new ideas too – and as such, were really willing to move past some obvious hit modes of the time. And make no mistake – these cuts aren't leftovers, or half-baked – as all of them have top-shelf production and arrangements – further proof that the Motown approach never dimmed at all. Titles include "Do You Know What I'm Talkin About" by LaBrenda Ben, "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Build Him Up" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Like A Nightmare" by The Andantes, "Dance Yeah Dance" by Thelma Brown, "When Somebody Loves You" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "My Black Belt" by Hattie Littles, "It's Too Soon To Know" by Kim Weston, "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues" by Liz Lands, "If Wishes Came True" by Anita Knorl, and "So Let Them Laugh At Me" by Linda Griner.

VariousOne In A Million – The Songs Of Sam Dees ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $14.99
Sam Dees is a hell of a singer, and he's a hell of a songwriter too – one who's worked not just with the southern soul stars of his roots, but also a much wider range of soul talents too! This wonderful collection really gets at the strength of Dees' amazing ability to pen a special soul tune – as it features work from a surprisingly huge array of talents from all sides of the soul spectrum – including a fair bit of vocalists we never knew worked with Sam's material. We love Dees' own records to death – and have enjoyed many of his demo recordings over the years, too – but a set like this really shows the important influence he had on soul music in the 70s – the way he touched so many folks, and helped them out with his meaningful lyrics. The set features great notes on Sam and his contribution – and 22 tracks that include "Where Did We Go Wrong" by LTD, "Vanishing Love (UK rmx)" by The Chi-Lites, "Girl Overboard" by Dorothy Moore, "So Your Love Finally Ran Out" by Les McCann, "Run To Me" by Sidney Joe Qualls, "Save The Overtime" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Seconds Of Your Love" by Johnnie Taylor, "One In A Million You" by Larry Graham, "Spoiled By Your Love" by Anita Ward, "What A Way To Put It" by The Temptations, "Good Guys Don't Always Win" by Ray Crumley, and "My World" by Sam Dees himself!

New Brenda & The TabulationsRight On The Tip Of My Tongue ... CD
Jamie/Guyden, 1971. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great stuff – and possibly the best album ever by this classic harmony soul group! The style is wonderful – with Brenda's sweet voice in the lead, and backing by the all-male Tabulations. The overall approach was used by Gladys Knight & The Pips for years, but we've always liked Brenda's stuff better – because it's got a deeper soul approach, and much richer harmonies. This CD features all the tracks from the group's rare 1971 album, plus a number of singles that weren't on the record. Titles include "Right On The Tip Of My Tongue", "Don't Make Me Over", "The Touch Of You", "California Soul", "A Part Of You", "And My Heart Sang", "Lies Lies Lies", and "A Child No One Wanted". CD

New Brenda & The TabulationsDry Your Eyes ... CD
Dionn/Jamie, 1967. Used .... Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from Brenda & The Tabulations – one of the best male/female soul groups of their era, yet one that's often sadly overlooked! This album will more than display why the group are so great – as they have a unique quality that's soft and sweet, yet also deeply soulful at the same time – making full use of the lead vocals of Brenda Payton, but supporting them with some rich male harmony backings from the rest of the Tabulations. And although the one gal, three guy format is one used by Ruby & The Romantics and Gladys Knight & The Pips, Brenda's take on the format is quite different – more like female soul outright, with some guy soul touches – and often done in a heartbreaking east coast harmony mode! Titles include the group's big early hit "Dry Your Eyes", plus other good originals like "The Wash", "Just Once in a Lifetime", and "Hey Boy". Also with "Stay Together Young Lovers", and "Who's Lovin You" – plus a wonderful remake of "God Only Knows". CD also includes bonus cuts "That's In The Past" and "When You're Gone". CD

New Patty & The EmblemsMixed-Up, Shook-Up Girl ... CD
Philly Archives, Mid 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sweet female soul from Philly – featuring 24 tracks by Patty & The Emblems, a group in the tradition of Gladys Knight & The Pips, or more specifically, Brenda & The Tabulations, in that the quartet is fronted by a female singer, with a trio of guys doing backup harmony. Patty's got a great voice – a little raw, which makes for a nice counterpoint next to the smoother sounds of the guys – and the Ben/Lee production on the tracks gives most of the tunes a strong mid 60s romping Northern groove. The CD also features 4 tracks recorded in 1999 by Patty, done in a mode that's much more in a sophisticated soul vein – but it's the 60s work that really sends the set! Titles include "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl", "You Took Advantage Of A Good Thing", "I'm Gonna Love You A Long Time", "My Heart's So Full Of You", "Give Me Time", "Love Will Come", "Ordinary Guy", "I'll Cry Later", and "All My Tomorrows Are Gone".

New Various80s Weekender – 100 Dancefloor Fillers (5CD set) ... CD
Demon (UK), 1980s. New Copy 5 CDs .... Out Of Stock
100 tracks of prime 80s soul – served up in a compact package at a mighty nice price! The work here runs the gamut of 80s dancefloor modes – from late disco tracks to early house cuts, with plenty of other styles in between – and the range of artists is mostly mainstream, in a way that makes the set a perfect throwback to the decade of fades and big shirts! Big hits are mixed with some lesser-known gems – and titles include "Hold Me Tighter In The Rain" by Billy Griffin, "Saturday Love" by Cherrelle & Alexander O'Neal, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Don't Take It Personal" by Jermaine Jackson, "Let Somebody Love You" by Keni Burke, "Dreamin" by Greg Henderson, "Body Work" by Hot Streak, "Jitterbuggin" by Heatwave, "Between The Sheets" by The Isley Brothers, "One On One" by Hall & Oates, "Rockit" by Herbie Hancock, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "Are You Ready" by Billy Ocean, "This Is The Right Time" by Lisa Stansfield, "How Bout Us" by Champaign, "Use It Up & Wear It Out" by Odyssey, "Just A Groove" by Glen Adams Affair, "Lifetime Love" by Joyce Sims, and lots lots more!

New VariousSoul Togetherness – Fifteen Modern Soul Room Gems ... CD

A sublime compilation of sweet modern soul – put together by the soul geniuses at Expansion, with all the classic sound of their famous Soul Chasers comps from a few years back! The set's a wonderful blend of rare tunes from the 70s mixed with recent gems that have a really classic sound – and if you've been following some of the great releases on the Expansion label over the past few years, you'll know just what to expect from the set.

New VariousSweetest Feeling – A Van McCoy Songbook 1962 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A sweet overview of the Van McCoy songbook from the early 60s to early 70s – and a stellar compilation from Ace Records – a label that's gone above and beyond in its efforts to shine a light on the songwriters and producers behind some of most moving songs of the era! The breadth ofMcCoy's talent is pretty amazing, all the more so given his huge disco era hit "The Hustle", a world away from the soaringly emotional soul songs he penned for top shelf singers like Betty Everett, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Nancy Wilson, Donny Hathaway, Erma Franklin, Jerry Butler and more – many of the best of which are compiled here! 24 tracks in all: "I Got The Sweetest Feeling" by Erma Franklin, "Getting Mighty Crowded" by Betty Everett, "Baby I'm Yours" by Barbara Lewis, "Sotp And Get A Hold Of Myself" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "So Soon" by Aretha Franklin, "Giving Up" by Donny Hathaway, "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs, "I've Lost You" by Jackie Wilson and many more.

New Martha ReevesRest Of My Life ... LP
Arista, 1976. Used .... Out Of Stock
Martha's lost the Vandellas for this one, but that's fine with us – as she's stepping out as a hip soul diva, laying down a mixture of mellow and upbeat tunes, in a style that's somewhere between Marlena Shaw and Gladys Knight. Production (and we assume arrangements) are by Tony Silvester, Bert De Coteaux, General Johnson, and Tony Camillo – and tracks include "Thank You", "Love Blind", "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", "Second Chance", and "Now That We Found Love". LP, Vinyl record album
