Gladys Knight & The Pips - Visions [Deluxe] (CD)

Visions [Deluxe]
£8.99
1983's Visions is a great lesson on how to make a veteran act current without losing its identity. On the group'€™s third Columbia album, Gladys and the Pips worked with Silverspoon Productions, the production company owned by then in-demand r&b producer Leon Sylvers. All of Sylver'€™s trademarks are here, from the snappy basslines to the guitar-bass breakdown and synth washes. Yet Sylvers'€™ sound fit the group like a glove, as he made the technology sound warm and inviting, while the Empress of Soul worked her magic on such excellent tunes as the #1 R&B hit Save The Overtime For Me, When You'€™re Far Away, and the clever ballad You'€™re #1 In My Book.
