On the whole, I don't think Gladys and the boys' work at Buddha is quite as brilliant as the best of their Motown material ('I Wish it Would Rain', 'Didn't You Know', 'Neither One of Us', 'All I Need is Time', etc.), but this disc still features some amazing songs. The only track I'm really not keen on is 'The One and Only', with that ridiculous guitar. But the others are all sheer soul classics, from the tearful balladry of 'Best Thing That Ever Happened' to the jaunty sing-along-a-heartbreak of 'Baby Don't Change Your Mind'. Personal favourite though has to be 'It's a Better Than Good Time': Gladys as disco diva! Fantastic.

While Gladys recorded some excellent music for various other record labels, particularly for Motown, she will be best remembered for her music of the mid-seventies with Buddha. This British budget compilation is drawn exclusively from the Buddha vaults.
The chart history of the group is confusing, not least because some records charted in America but not Britain when originally released, but charted in Britain when reissued. However, all the big hits in both countries are included here.
Midnight train to Georgia, I've got to use me imagination, Best thing that ever happened to me, Baby don't change your mind and the medley Try to remember / The way we were - each and every one of these are classics. Other great songs include So sad the song (mournful but lovely), Come back and finish what you started and Part time love. Another fine song, On and on, written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, featured in the soundtrack of Claudine.
This is a very strong collection of the best music from Gladys Knight's most successful years.

After leaving Motown in the early 70's Gladys signed up with the Buddha label and the rest is history as they say. At Motown she was criminally underrated but the Buddha crew hooked her up with some great songwriters and producers. 14 of these track broke into the UK top 20 and all her 70's classics are here : Midnight Train to Georgia, Got to use my imagination etc... If you dig soul music this should already be in your collection so get it!

Gladys Knight has been a fantastic artist for many years & all of her well known (& lesser known) hits are on this great value album. If you're a fan you won't be disappointed.
