CATCH UP GROOVE/6 THE POINTER SISTERS: GREATEST HITS (BBR)
Hey – the mighty Pointer Sisters! One of the most successful female units in the business, and my, how I remember first seeing them perform in London during their “Yes We Can Can” days. Made a lasting impression on me for sure. Anyway, here’s the 1982 album with its handful of international hits like the tight vocalled “Fire”; “Slow Hand” with the instantly recognisable lazy slant, and the chirpy, crisp sounding “Should I Do It”. Absolutely adore the melody of “Someday We’ll Be Together” (not the Diana Ross and the Supremes’ track); it ambles along against a mid-tempo beat with lyrics that bite. Quite brilliant - and I have played this several times already as one of the CD’s highlights. Check it out! Alongside this are rare flip sides like “I Want To Do It”, later a hit for Barry Manilow. And, among the many bonus tracks, there’s a version of “I’m So Excited” which, when remixed, became a multi-million selling global hit for the girls in 1984. A super release from one of my much loved ladies of song, where, apart from the hits, “Someday We’ll Be Together” hits the spot. Going in again….
