BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Operator” Results

My last battle, as you might recall, was between two songs named "Operator," one by Brenda Holloway and the other by Gladys Knight & The Pips. Really wasn’t much of a contest…

Brenda Holloway: 8

Gladys Knight & The Pips: 3

Congratulations to Brenda Holloway and a hearty "well done!" to Glays Knight & The Pips.

Be with us once again next Wednesday, January 15, for another fun-filled and exciting Battle of the Bands!

  1. This outcome came as no surprise to me. I like Gladys Knight & The Pips, and I don’t think I’d even heard of Brenda Holloway before, but I thought that Brenda’s was very clearly the smooth-er operator.

    1. I think Gladys had a couple of things working against her: it was one of their first records, and it was on a lesser label that probably didn’t have the equipment that Motown did. By the time Brenda released her song, Gladys and The Pips were on Motown, too.


  2. Whoa! I guess we voters put a decisive end to that Battle! I think the outcome was the right one, but it was my outcome so I was biased.
