OUT OF PRINT 1982 HITS LP MAKES IT TO CD
WITH ADDED HITS AND BONUS RARITIES…
• The Pointer Sisters were one of the most successful female groups the music industry has seen with 13 top 20 singles and 8 top 40 albums shared between the US and UK pop charts. After working with hugely successful producer, Richard Perry for four years, Planet Records issued Pointer Sisters’ Greatest Hits in 1982.
• The compilation was particularly successful in Australia where it made #11 while the Pointers toured the country. It covered the group’s LP’s Energy (1978), Special Things (1980) and Black & White (1981) and was issued just after their So Excited album (1982). As well as some notable album tracks, the collection included some of their biggest hits including the Bruce Springsteen penned ‘Fire’ (Pop #2/R&B #14/UK #34), their cover of Allen Toussaint’s ‘Happiness’ (R&B #20/Pop #30), ‘He’s So Shy’ (Pop #3/R&B #10), ‘Could I Be Dreaming’ (R&B #22/Pop #52), ‘Slow Hand’ (Pop #2/R&B #7/UK #10) and ‘Should I Do It’ (Pop #13/UK #50).
• This new expanded edition also includes their more recent hits ‘American Music’ (Pop #16/R&B #24) and ‘I’m So Excited’ (Pop #30/R&B #46). The latter would of course be remixed in 1984 and become a massive international hit and ultimately their signature song. Also featured here are some rare b-sides, some of which would go on to be hits for other artists including ‘Holdin’ Out For Love’ (a hit for Angela Bofill) and ‘I Want To Do It With You’ (a UK top ten hit for Barry Manilow).
• BBR is thrilled to present this expanded and remastered edition of POINTER SISTERS’ GREATEST HITS for the first time on CD in a deluxe super jewel case with new interviews with Ruth and Anita Pointer and ten added bonus tracks.
