RCA's The Best of the Pointer Sisters picks up where Hip-O's Yes We Can: The Best of the Blue Thumb Recordings leaves off, presenting 18 of the trio's hits for Planet and RCA Records. The collection begins with 1979's "Fire" and ends with "Goldmine," which peaked on the charts in 1987. In between those two songs are such massive hits as "He's So Shy," "Slow Hand," "Automatic," "Jump (For My Love)," "I'm So Excited," and "Neutron Dance." As these hits prove, the Pointer Sisters got a lot smoother once they left Blue Thumb, choosing to record seductive quiet-storm ballads and sprightly dance-pop. Fans of the Blue Thumb years may find this a little distasteful, but as this fine collection illustrates, the Pointer Sisters excelled in this area, just as they did with the funkier material for Blue Thumb. Anyone who is a fan of the group's late-'70s and early-'80s hits will not be disappointed by this disc, since it offers a definitive portrait of the Pointer Sisters at Planet and RCA.
Great album of familiar not so familiar songs to me. Track 2- Happiness, has got to be my new fav!
This album isn't too bad at all. The Pointer Sisters didn't do a bad job at recording these songs. I know they work hard at all of these songs.
I love the Pointer Sisters and these are wonderful songs. I listened to the Pointer Sisters all the time as a kid. I still listen to them all the time. Can't get enough of them. You go girls!!!!!
