GLADYS KNIGHT and the PIPS. Fantastic vintage 8×10 glossy black and white publicity portrait by James Kriegsmann, boldly signed in black felt tip ink by Gladys Knight, Bubba Knight, Edward Patten and William Guest, the three male singers adding “Pips” and the latter two signing with first names only. Gladys and Bubba Knight also add a date of 1971. Near very fine condition, with scattered very mild thumbing bends, all virtually invisible when the photograph is viewed head on. The chart-topping soul and R&B quartet was active from 1959 through 1989, winning numerous Grammy awards and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. Scarce!
