RECORDED LATE -1972, ‘NEITHER ONE OF US‘ would become the last album Gladys Knight and the Pips would record for Motown. By March 1973, when this LP was released, the group by that time had signed to record with Buddah Records in February. Their 1973 single, “Daddy Could Swear I Declare,” would become the second single taken off the album by the group, having made the top 20 (pop #19; R&B #2) after it’s release in April. The first single from the LP, “Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye),” would become the last single prior Gladys Knight & The Pips departure from Motown.
