Gladys brought me to tears. That woman could sing!Dad
When I was a kid, my family went on vacation to Wildwood New Jersey and Gladys Knight and the Pips were perfroming in a club near our motel and they were staying there as well. My older sister was afraid to ask for their autograph, so she made me go over to one of the Pips and ask. I was dripping wet from the pool. He asked if I had a paper and pen...I didn't so he took me to Gladys' room, she was cooking bacon, and told her I wanted an autograph. She went and got a picture of the group and they all signed it. My sister still has that picture.
Always a pip, never a Gladys.
As a teen, I loved Gladys Knight And The Pips!As I loved ALL soul and motown . . . .I'm talkin '64 on . . *G* Heck, I like music of all types PRE that time!But I'm surprise, Blue Gal, this was not yer pick:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pHhItkhc7oSure, the train's running the wrong way, not north. But it's the motion, in your move . . .*G* And Gladys was PASSIONATE about her motion, for her move . . . Good to see ya back on the toobs . . . *G*
Dang, I went tubin . . . my bad.One of my ALL time favs, still, is that wackalooness Dionne Warwick, and this cut, which had me in tears in my adolescent years. I blame the horn section . . . but it's really Dionne who kills it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0R-ZE-gFcBA&feature=related*G*
Woo hoo! I LOVE Gladys and the gang. The Pips really don't get the credit they deserve as brilliant backup/ensemble singers.
I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
