Gladys Knight - I Who Have Nothing (Remixes)

This song was originally released by Ben E. King in 1963 and has since been covered numerous times, most notably by Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, and Sylvester. The Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight is the latest artist to cover this. Gladys handles the song effortlessly sounding amazing. The R&B midtempo with a hint of Electro production on the main version is pretty good. In addition to the original, there are some remixes by Leon Sylver, Lil Cee, Monikr, Paul Thomas, Red Top, and Tony Moran.
The two circuit-oriented mixes by Paul Thomas and Tony Moran are the best of the bunch. Paul's electro-house treatment works really well for the mainstream floors. Though a little milder than his usual, Tony's mix is the definitive hard-hitting one. The other mixes are okay, however, they lack the direction and flow that the Paul and Tony mixes have.

Grade: A- (for the original, Paul Thomas, and Tony Moran versions)
