Neither One of Us is an album recorded by Gladys Knight & the Pips, released in early 1973 (see 1973 in music) by Motown Records on the Soul Records label. The label released the album shortly after the group left the label for Buddah Records while the title track was rising up the charts. That song eventually peaked at on the US Pop Charts, and reached the top spot on the R&B Charts. Motown issued another single, "Daddy Could Swear, I Declare", in April of the year

I love this album very much. It's got so much feeling of love and lost love. Soul music at it's finest. The title track will bring you to tears if you follow the meaning. Two lovers that have come so far and been through so much that there's nothing left other than just being together for no reason other than being together and not knowing how to move on. What a sad shame that would be. In my opinion what makes Knight and the Pips stand apart from other "Diva"/female soul singers is the fact that her back up singers are male and not females.
Although they left Motown (actually Soul) shortly after they cut this album, Gladys Knight & the Pips were at their performing peak during the early '70s. This magnificent title track featured stunning vocals by Knight and equally effective backing vocals from the Pips, and had several other outstanding songs on it. Why Motown never pushed them as much as they could have mystified many at the time, and while Knight and the Pips didn't surpass their Motown material at other labels, they created enough outstanding songs to justify their decision to leave.
