Energy
· The Pointer Sisters trail blazed a unique path for themselves working with genres as diverse as funk (Yes We Can Can, How Long), jazz/vocalese (Steam Heat, Cloudburst) and country (Fairytale), all on Blue Thumb Records. Bonnie Pointer left the group in 1976 and the remaining trio of Ruth, Anita and June Pointer eventually signed with Richard Perry’s fledgling label Planet Records. Impressed by their unique ability to fit their vocals into any genre Perry decided to fashion the sisters an album of innovative new arrangements of lesser known compositions by the rock fraternity.
· ENERGY bowed in late 1978 and was quickly certified gold making US Pop #13 & R&B #9 in the process. The album was preceded by their cover of Bruce Springsteen’s FIRE which became their first gold single. FIRE made #2 on the Hot 100 as well as hitting the #1 spot in the Netherlands, South Africa and New Zealand.
· EVERYBODY IS A STAR (Sly and The Family Stone) was chosen as ENERGY’s first UK single where the sisters made their debut performance on Top Of The Pops performing the hit song.
· HAPPINESS saw the group returning to the repertoire of Alan Toussaint after charting hits with his "Yes We Can Can” and "Going Down Slowly” earlier in the decade. The single made the top 20 of both the R&B and Disco charts in the US in 197.

· ENERGY also features songs originally recorded by Steely Dan (Dirty Work), Fleetwood Mac (Hypnotized), Redbone (Come And Get Your Love) and The Doobie Brothers (Echoes Of Love) and further enhanced the Pointers reputation of being one of the most versatile vocal acts the music industry has ever known.

· Newly remastered and released in deluxe Super Jewel cases with bonus tracks and brand new interviews, ENERGY is a must for all Rock, Soul and Pop fans out there!
