Soul Fixin'

Dreaming of Gladys
The '76 Gladys Knight & The Pips soundtrack album, Pipe Dreams, has been reissued. Gladys Knight also starred in the film. Pipe Dreams has been packaged along with the Curtis Mayfield produced soundtrack album Claudine. Pipe Dreams garnered very little attention back in '76. The album includes "So Sad The Song," which was a Top 20 soul hit, and two songs penned by Rev. James Cleveland, "Follow My Dreams" and "I'll Miss You." Far from an essential album, Pipe Dreams is an overall decent album, it is defintely worth adding to your collection.
