The Look Of Love

The Look Of Love (Bacharach/David) - Gladys Knight and the Pips
c/w You're My Everything (Whitfield/Penzabene/Grant)


You may have noticed I get quite excited about Bacharach and David tunes, and here's one of the best. Motown again with Gladys Knight and her 'Pips' singing this classic song from the film 'Casino Royale' (remember Herb Alpert from earlier?) their own way.

The 'Pips' were all relatives of Gladys' and named after cousin Scottie 'Pip' Pippin, but several personnel changes led to the eventual renaming Gladys Knight and the Pips. You see. it's not as bad as it seems, Gladys was a 'Pip' too, and Pip is a perfectly reasonable name for a group. . . .
