Description

VISIONS is a great lesson on how to make a veteran act current without loosing its identity. On the groups third Columbia album, Gladys and the Pips work with Silverspoon Productions, the production company owned by then in-demand r&b producer Leon Sylvers (The Whispers, Shalamar). All of Sylvers trademarks are here from the snappy basslines to the guitar-bass breakdown and synth washes. Yet Sylvers sound fit the group like a glove because he makes the technology sound warm and inviting, while the Empress of Soul works her magic on such excellent tunes as the #1 R&B hit Save The Overtime For Me, When Youre Far Away (an early Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis composition), and the clever ballad Youre #1 In My Book. Gladys, her brother Merald and r&b songwriting legend Sam Dees (One In A Million You) produced the more subdued moments on VISIONS including one of the first recordings of Wind Beneath My Wings, Seconds, and Dont Make Me Run Away.
