Positive Songs For Negative Times #47: Window Raisin' Granny


Since featuring Midnight Train To Georgia a few weeks back, I've been dipping into the Gladys Knight & The Pips back catalogue, which is where I came across this little ditty, one of the B-sides to Midnight Train (along with a largely superfluous - aren't they always - instrumental of the A-Side).

Window Raisin' Granny is, I'm guessing, semi-autobiographical, written by Gladys and her brother Merald Woodlow Knight, Jr. (Bubba), who I'm guessing takes lead vocals here. I can't find much background info on the interweb, but it makes me smile and very few things do these days. Hence it's a Positive Song...
