Gladys Knight's voice can go from silky smooth as on Help Me Make It Through The Night, to raw emotion as on Neither One Of Us. The first mentioned has a lovely spoken introduction that adds to the mood of this great Kristofferson song. Midnight Train to Georgia (1974) is another of her deep soul classics while on Try To Remember (The Way We Were) she goes all silky again - this one too, has a great spoken intro. From the disco period come Bourgie Bourgie and Taste Of Bitter Love, dancefloor killers demonstrating her versatility. Other favourites of mine include Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me, One And Only, Part Time Love and Come Back and Finish What You Started. This collection is by no means a complete compilation of her singles or of her hits. Her career spans more than 5 decades and she had many more, but it does sort of collect the commercial highlights of her career and serves as an excellent introduction to the golden voice of Gladys.

VINE VOICEon 2 October 2008
I have been on the Gladys Knight journey since her Pips days way back in the sixties. I wore out my vinyl copy of Just Walk in My Shoes, it was my "getting ready to go out" song. This compilation seems pretty haphazard and culls tracks from the earliest days up until nearly now but every one is a winner and plays like somebody's Gladys mix tape. I have to admit to finding a couple of tracks here I am unfamiliar with especially her mega sexy (well what else with that voice)version of Look of Love. As a reminder of her great voice this is a bargain and you really can never have too many CDs with So Sad the Song on

Had the great fortune to see Gladys live in Las Vegas in Sepember this year. I had been a fan for years and had the singles album as an LP many years ago and it was great to be able to buy the CD and revisit this worderful work. I can say that Gladys sounds every bit as good today as she did all those years ago, what a class act!
