Gladys Knight & The Pips – Soul Groove
Gladys Knight & the Pips were an R&B/soul family musical act from Atlanta, Georgia that remained active on the music charts and performing circuit for three decades.
Starting out as simply The Pips in 1952, derived from a cousin’s nickname, the founding members were Gladys Knight, brother Merald “Bubba” Knight, sister Brenda Knight and cousins William and Eleanor Guest.
The group reached commercial success after signing with Motown Records in 1966. After a year and a half, the group recorded the first hit single version of “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” in 1967, which led to several hit singles for Motown’s Soul Records label, including “Nitty Gritty”, “Friendship Train”, “If I Were Your Woman” and “Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye)”, before leaving the label for Buddah Records in 1973, where they recorded the hits “Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me”, “I’ve Got to Use My Imagination” and their number-one hit single, “Midnight Train to Georgia”.
