Gladys Knight: Good Woman (1991)

gladys knight good woman

By Scott Goldfine

Gladys Knight, one of the classiest vocalists to emerge from the Motown era, has put aside the Pips for her first solo album, “Good Woman.” After opening with a pair of dance jams that would make Janet Jackson pause, Knight settles into a cozy mood that enlists Dionne Warwick and Patti LaBelle on the centerpiece “Superwoman.”

This super woman’s warm, rich singing remains a soulful wonder.
