If I Were Your Woman

LP (Item 29732) Motown, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+

A new level of sophistication for Gladys Knight – and a record that opened the door to the mellower style that would break big for her in the 70s! 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".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Includes the Motown inner sleeve. Cover has light aging and a cutout notch.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
