Gladys Knight and the Pips recorded a number of minor hits for Motown in the mid-to-late '60s, but it wasn't until the group left the label that they scored their signature hit, “Midnight Train to Georgia.” Knight has had a colorful career since splitting with the Pips for good in 1988, recording the title song for the James Bond movie Licence to Kill, opening a chain of well-loved chicken and waffle restaurants, and, at age 67, competing this year on “Dancing With the Stars.” Her most recent album is the 2006 standards collection Before Me, which includes winning interpretations of “God Bless the Child” and “Stormy Weather.”
