    Over the course of her career, Gladys Knight shifted from straight soul to disco to adult-contemporary music, but some of her finest work has been in the vein of smooth R&B. After a successful tenure with Motown Records, Knight and her backing vocal group, the Pips, moved to Buddah Records in the early 1970s, where they recorded some of their strongest material. Buddah/Legacy's LOVE SONGS cherry picks the act's romantically themed songs, including the smash singles "Midnight Train to Georgia" and "Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me."
    Knight's elastic, gospel-influenced embellishments stretch all over these compositions, and her rich, resonant alto voice cuts straight to the soul. The tight-knit accents of the Pips frame her singing, as do lavish string and horn arrangements. Knight also had the good fortune to perform material by some of the era's finest songwriters--including Bill Withers ("Tenderness Is His Way"), Curtis Mayfield ("The Makings of You"), and Ashford & Simpson ("A Friend of Mine")--and LOVE SONGS offers an excellent cross section of that material as well. The resulting set works as a sampler of Knight's '70s and early-'80s Buddah output, as well as a soundtrack for a cozy, intimate evening at home.
