[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ere you expecting Gladys Knight at Number One? Well, I did say this was my personal list. Knight might not have the jazz of Fitzgerald, the blues of Holiday or the soul of Franklin, but she sang songs that I simply enjoyed. The sound was full and rounded, together with her backing men singers, The Pips. I didn't know whether to choose “Midmight Train to Georgia” or “You're the Best Thing that Ever Happened”, so I'm putting both of them here!

The sound quality on both videos is poor, so you'll need to get the volume pumped up!
