CD Reviews

PLEASENT MEMORIES.
D. A. Long | 06/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is awesome!!! It brings back so many pleasent memories and with them tears. I lived in what use to be known as the Robert Tayler Homes in Chicago,Il. As a kid I would hear the songs from this soundtrack blasting from screendoors from inside the many apartments as I played. The Moms would play the songs off that LP as though it was their anthem. Those were some hard times back then, Those women held it all together for us. Claudine plays tribute to them, when the tough got going they got tougher. I am a long way form the Robert Taylor Homes (Housing Project) but the songs from this CD reminds me where I come from and the sacrifices that were made to get me where I am. Who-ever you are buy this CD Glady Knight's soulful voice will reach right down in your heart and squeeze. You will feel every struggle, pain, and joy of Claudine."
Two "lost" albums finally surface.

"When I was 15, Gladys Knight & the Pips were arguably the most popular group in the country. The soundtrack for "Claudine", written and produced by the late, great Curtis Mayfield, was a tour-de-force for the group, as well as a modest cinematic hit for stars Dihann Carroll and James Earl Jones. But the real treat here is the soundtrack for Gladys' acting debut, "Pipe Dreams", containing the # 12 R&B hit, and my personal favorite Gladys performance, "So Sad the Song". The movie was a bust, but the soundtrack is finally available again. It only took 31 years."
Ahhh, the good times

""Make Yours A Happy Home" brings tears to my eyes almost everytime i hear it. It reminds me of the closing scene in the movie where they finally get it together. Me being a step-dad, i felt Rupe's pain in that movie, so the soundtrack gives me a lift as well as bringing back memories of a simpler time in my life."
