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 #2 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. "Daddy" was a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching #19, and nearly topped the Soul Charts as well, peaking at #2. By that point, the group had released their first Buddah single, "Where Peaceful Waters Flow".

Following the success of this album and the group's commercial acclaim at Buddah, Motown released three more albums of unreleased material.
