"Miss Gladys Knight And The Pips were hitting their stride when these two albums were released in 1971. "If I Were Your Woman" had the title track and "I Don't Want To Do Wrong" as the released singles and it showed a deep and truly soulful side of the Lady and the tight and supportive and unobtrusive side of the pips. The other cuts on the album consist of very good covers and original tunes. As for "Standing Ovation" with "Make Me The Woman You Go Home To" and the Kris Kristofferson cover of "Help Me Make It Through The Night" this was a strong albumas a follow up to the latter. The southern roots and the gospel intensity that the group grew up with are all eveident here and makes this album coupled with the former worth every penny to have in your collection."
