First release from new label Ramrock Retro - Gladys Knight


First release from new label Ramrock Retro - Gladys Knight magazine cover

A new label is born – RAMROCK RETRO with the strap line ‘Yesterday’s Sounds Today’.

I'm incredibly proud to present the stunning debut release – Gladys Knight and the Pips and their legendary Northern Soul stomper ‘Stop and get a hold of myself’ flipped with the mid-tempo monster ‘Tell her you’re mine’, all lovingly remastered to the highest audio quality by Darren Morris at North Street West Studios for your ultimate listening pleasure. Release date for the vinyl is February 5th, 2021.

After having left the group in 1962 to marry jazz musician Jimmy Newman and becoming a mum, Gladys Knight reunited with The Pips in 1964 and, along with her brother Merald ‘Bubba’ Knight and cousins William Guest and Edward Patten, formed the iconic ‘dream team’ of Gladys Knight & the Pips and signed to Larry Maxwell’s New York MAXX label. With Gladys + the guys back together, it didn’t take them long to unleash the 1965 soul stormer ‘Stop and get a hold of myself’, penned by Van McCoy on Maxx 334, swiftly followed by the wonderful ‘Tell her you’re mine’ on Maxx 335 co-written by Gladys herself and ERA label boss, Herb Wiseman.

The vinyl is super limited to 500 copies worldwide. 

Available now on Ramrock Bandcamp and via your favourite vinyl retailers. https://ramrock.bandcamp.com/album/rret001-gladys-knight-the-pips-stop-and-get-a-hold-of-myself-c-w-tell-her-youre-mine
