Format: Audio CD
This is one of a series of twofers of Gladys Knight & The Pips Motown albums. What a gem this one is.

'If I Were Your Woman' is a mature soul album. The title track and 'I Don't Want To Do Wrong' were smash hits in America, and show off Gladys' passionate emotional way of interpreting lyrics. A few covers, mostly from the soul field, show off the power of her voice and The Pips tight harmonies. Of the rest I especially like 'Here I Am Again', and 'Signed Gladys', which must have been written for her :-)

'Standing Ovation' took a turn towards pop with a cover of James Taylor's 'Fire and Rain'. The Hollies 'He Aint Heavy' done as a medly with Simon and Garfunkel's 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters' works well. They stand comparison with Aretha's interpretations of other peoples' songs. Gladys' brother Bubbah takes the lead on The Beatles 'Long and Winding Road'. There is a bit of country here too. Kris Kristofferson's 'Help Me Make It Through The Night' gave them their biggest UK hit of their Motown days, and pointed the way to all those Jim Weatherley songs, that would see the group enjoy their biggest commercial success.

The albums are repackaged with 'You Need Love Like I Do (Don't You)', a single from just before '....Woman', that is a good contrast, showing their funkier side.

I've had this one for a week and I've been playing nothing else. It is like having two old friends back.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Andy Edwards VINE VOICE on 2 Nov 2006
Format: Audio CD
Gladys Knight was the finest female singer at Motown - she was overlooked in favour of Diana Ross (the Bosses' lover). All of Gladys Knight and the Pips output was issued on the Soul subsiduary label in the USA, which tells you all you need to know about what you will find on this set and the other albums released with them.

It is clear from these albums that Motown/Soul albums from this era were primarily about the singles which it contained. I guess this is the reason for the number of covers these contain. Don't let that put you off, however, because of Gladys' ability to take a familiar song and find something new in her interpretation - as illustrated by "Help Me Make It Through the Night", from which Gladys wrenches pain and loneliness. For me she rivals Aretha Franklin when covering others' songs.

There's also original tracks here - "If I Were Your Woman", "I Don't Wanna Do Wrong" and "Make Me The Woman..." as well as the uptempo "You Need Love..." stand out for me - and the overriding impression is of the power of her voice and the perfect counterpoint provided by the Pips.

Gladys and the Pips left Motown after a couple more albums (also now available) and she was able to enjoy the major success that they deserved with Buddha Records. However since then they have been cruelly ignored. I hope these releases will act as a reminder of just how talented were Gladys Knight and the Pips.

Gladys and the pips at their best 31 May 2007
By Christopher Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Miss Gladys Knight And The Pips were hitting their stride when these two albums were released in 1971. "If I Were Your Woman" had the title track and "I Don't Want To Do Wrong" as the released singles and it showed a deep and truly soulful side of the Lady and the tight and supportive and unobtrusive side of the pips. The other cuts on the album consist of very good covers and original tunes. As for "Standing Ovation" with "Make Me The Woman You Go Home To" and the Kris Kristofferson cover of "Help Me Make It Through The Night" this was a strong albumas a follow up to the latter. The southern roots and the gospel intensity that the group grew up with are all eveident here and makes this album coupled with the former worth every penny to have in your collection.

Gladys...Here She Is Again! 12 April 2007
By Handsome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's about time Gladys' motown music was released. The "If I Was Your Woman", is a GREAT album. Songs like the title track, One Step Away (my personal favorite), Feelin' Alright, One Less Bell to Answer, Signed Gladys down to Sly Stone's Everybody is a Star, with the Pips each singing a lead line was fabulous. I also love the song, "Here I Am Again". Too bad Berry Gordy didn't properly promote this masterpiece. On the Standing Ovation album, it's ok, but I love the song "No One Can Love You More...They are jamming. Overall, If you love Gladys, you won't be disappointed.

Knight and the Pips making more with less! 29 April 2010
By whatever_gong82 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As many music historians know by now, when Gladys Knight and the Pips were at Motown, they were thought of as an afterthought, because Motown worked on a caste system run by Berry Gordy Jr., and since Berry Gordy put most of his A list talent (writers and producers, etc.) on people such as Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder, for starters.

The two albums here, "If I Were Your Woman/Standing Ovation" is a case in point. The highlight of the first album is the opening song, which is sung suberbly by Ms. Knight and the Pips. For the rest of the first album, and most of the second, the other songs were covers and B-sides, still sung with heart and passion by Gladys and company, but leftovers nonetheless.

Things like this would lead the Pips to leave Motown in 1973 and win the Grammy 1 year later for "Midnight Train To Georgia" and prove once and for all that they're Grade A talent, but was saddled with C and D list writers/producers most of the time that they were at Motown (exceptions being the song I just mentioned and when legendary writer/producer Norman Whitfield had them do Heard It Through The Gravevine in 1967 before Marvin made it his song in 1968.)

STANDING OVATION! 10 Nov 2012
By Lleedia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this cd to get the second album "Standing Ovation" which is SUBLIME. You just start it and let it go, unless you don't want to have to cry at the sad songs. And the bonus track "You need love like I do (Don't you)" is good!
